TJ will never be a starter in the NFL. (Oooops starting).
TJ will never get starters money. (Oooops getting starters money).
TJ will never pass for 300 yards. (Oooops did it twice this year. Once it was in a bit over 2 quarters and against the number 2 defense).
TJ will never make players better. (Ooooops, compare the production of he Seahawks with Whitehurst under center vs TJ under center).
TJ will never command respect from his teamates (Oooooops, better go read what they are saying about him)
TJ will never be a NFL level QB. (Oooops, even national announcers - along with most of the Seahawks local press, are now recanting that).
As with your blind hatred for TJ, you are missing the mark on the Chiller as well. He will not only be a HC again, he will probably, in all likelyhood make the team better than when he found it, just like he did in MN.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

If you call what TJ is doing successful it certainly explains a lot. All he is doing is what a backup quality QB should be able to do and that is all that most people feel he was. And if you would be happier with him on the team than what we have had so far even in 2 games with Ponder then I feel bad for you.

If you want to consider Jackson a viable QB, feel free - I certainly don't.
He starts on a team that has Charlie Whithurst as a backup.... YOU would start on that team.
He was signed by the team that hired Darrel Bevell to be their OC...DARREL BEVELL!!!! If you don't know what I think of Bevell by know, you haven't been reading.
He "commanded the respect" of his team mates here too. Remember when the Favre noise first started and the vocal few started clamoring about how much they believed in Jackson? That tune sure changed in a hurry in '09...and we let his "confidence building" ass go in '11. But we sure did respect him...
I will allow the writer at Rotowire.com to sum up how I feel about this weeks Jackson debacle:
Jackson, who entered Sunday's game in the second quarter, unexpectedly did not start because coach Pete Carroll thought "he could have used another week" to heal his injured pectoral, the Tacoma News Tribune reports.
And yet in his very next breath, Carroll said, "In my mind I knew he could play." If Jackson, as Carroll also affirmed, gives the team the best chance to win, and if he's healthy enough to play, why hold him out? Perhaps there's something behind the scenes that excuses the move. Other than that, it's hard to understand why an NFL head coach would use his inferior backup to see if he "can get something going." Jackson finished 21-of-40 for a career-high 323 yards, though it was a hollow 300-yard game as he failed to move the offense effectively.
You were saying?
Oh, and Chiller left this team better than he found it? Really? Red *sucks squirrels* used to try and make that claim about himself too...we laughed then as well.

Coach Pete Carroll and Jackson both said they’d hoped they could rest him for another week before bringing him back. The plan was to see if Whitehurst would come out and be functional, and if not, then bring on Jackson
Whitehurst, Seattle's backup quarterback, started for the second consecutive game because Jackson is still dealing with a strained pectoral muscle, suffered in an Oct. 9 game against the New York Giants. Jackson has practiced sparingly since his injury, though a promising workout on Friday left his status a game-time decision.
"I was hoping to see if we could rest (Jackson) another week," Carroll said. "He could throw the ball well enough to play, but he could've used another week. ... I was going to see if Charlie could pull it together, get something going and help us out, but it just didn't look like we were moving anywhere."
Some other interesting quotes in this ESPN article that kindof lend credence to our little beer bet.

When you're a 2-4 team in a weak Division, you don't leave your best option on the bench and "hope" that a shitty back up will be "functional"....you put in your BEST option all day, every day.
If Jackson is so good, if he gave them the best chance to win, WHY WAS HE ON THE PINE? Don't say to rest/heal, because REAL QB's can play through some pain.
Look at it another way...why are we NOT protecting Ponder and allowing him to grow within the system by playing McNabb in a clearly lost season? Because we are still PLAYING TO WIN.
What in the hell is Seattle doing?

Look, I'm not trying to explain WHY the HC did it. I just gave you quotes from him on the subject.
MMMMMMM, Beeeeeeer. I might even send TJ a couple that you buy me as a reward.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

Former Vikings coach Brad Childress is looking like a better coach with each passing week. A few months ago, some people were predicting Childress would never be a head coach again. Front offices are starting to take a harder look at what Childress accomplished in Minnesota within the context of how the Vikings are performing now. It will be an upset if Childress isn’t a candidate for a head coaching job or two in the offseason.
WOW. This is starting to get some traction. LOL. I know alot of you will be upset when it happens.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.
