As if I have said. Keep TJack and draft a qb. Going into training camp with 4 qbs and see what happens. We have only seen Portis against 3rd string players. We at least know what we have in TJack. Hopefully, Flynn lights it up but we need to have another option as well.
What good does it do to know the offense if he can't do anything with it? He is a poor QB - and he has been for 6 years. If you apply the "something better" concept I see bantered around here, where was that when they cut Hasslebeck? No, Jackson is a loss I think - anything would be better. Unfortunately, there is no trade value attached so we will probably keep him. Training a new QB would serve us better, but I have been pounding that drum for several years.
I think it comes down to the fact there is not much for options that I can see at the momment. If Seattle can figure something out that would be great. I can't see "T-Jack" being in Seattle beyond this season however. Allthough I wouldn't be disappointed if Seattle where to cut or trade "T-Jack" in the least.

I agree, Seadawgs. I dont see TJack panning out. Getting him was a panic move due to no offseason. Draft another QB in the mid rounds (Kellen Moore would be a low risk addition) and see what happens. Im sure TJack will find a job in the CFL somewhere.
Getting TJax was a conservative, insurance-like move, it certainly wasn't a panic'd one. With Darrell Bevell as our Off. Coordinator, and especially after getting Rice and letting hasselbeck go, it was a good move.
Would Whitehurst have gone 7-9 in the scheme?
Would Hassebeck have done better than 9-7?
To both, probably not.
Was there a better FA qb to get? No, unless you think Kolb worked out for AZ.
I would have took Kolb over "T-Jack".
Personally I think getting TJack was Bevell's idea and to be honest, I am not all that fired up about Bevell either. There were instances last year where it didn't look like Seattle knew what to call. I guess it boils down to knowing the talent that you have to play on the field. It gets said a lot but teams like NE and Pittsburgh etc know that their players can do and ask them to do it. Seattle knew what TJack couldn't do, but kept asking him to do it. TJack isn't the answer, but some of the blame has to go to the OC as well. But in response to what everyone else has said, I think right now Seattle is stuck with keeping him for another year at least, but it wouldn't keep me up at night if he was gone.
Bevell's offense will look just fine with a true west coast qb in it. Just wait and see.
