    Thank you for doing these. I hope Steve had fun at Jen Weld. Stanley’s pronunciation of Vizquel was really amusing.

    But the second-biggest development is the opportunity to second-guess the coach on his choice of quarterback. Whitehurst completed 11 of 19 passes for 149 yards. THIS WAS LESS THAN TWO QUARTERS

    Jackson was 15 of 22 for 166 yards.THIS TOOK 3/4s OF THE GAME WOW!!!

    During preseason I wasn’t impressed with Whitehirst at all. Last Sunday a different Whitehurst showed up. Pinpoint passing, great vision down field, he had it all. I just hope it wasn’t a fluke. If it wasn’t, the Seahawks have two first string QB’s.

    For those that dissed Hasselback, I suggest you look at the standings specifically Tennessee. He never had a good offensive line. QB’s seldome throw accurately fromn on their backs.

      Hasselbeck sucked because he was not mobile. He didn’t have a bad o-line for the last 5 years – he just can’t move.
      Unfortunately, when the o-line is as bad as the Seahawks, you just have to get a QB in there that has some legs and Hasselbeck didn’t have any.
      He is in a perfect situation now with a solid o-line and a super halfback.
      If you watched Sundays’ game though, he’ll never get that team really going unless he gets away from the 5-10 yard dink passes. It makes for great personal stats, but not necessarily a win.

    I liked the better production from Jackson Sunday. It seems he’s still “thinking” and it seems he has trouble getting into rhythm. Whitehurst did a good job, especially off the bench and seems to have the rhythm and the ability to run the team better than Jackson in the no-huddle.

    Overall they both did well (Especially considering how the line SUCKS), and Whitehurst, to me, seemed more polished and sure in the position.

    It’s just a shame there were the 2 red zone fumbles in the first half (INEXCUSABLE) which would have made it a completely diffferent game.

    PS: The line, as bad as it is, had definitely shown improvement since the first game. Hopefully they continue to improve.
