TFD: Tarvaris Jackson impressive for Seahawks

Posted by: Michael Rand under Vikings Updated: August 9, 2013 - 2:46 PM


Do we have a QB controversy brewing in Seattle!?!?



But it is worth noting that ex-Viking Tarvaris Jackson, who was dumped by the Bills in the offseason and is now back with Seattle, was ultra-productive in his preseason debut, going 8-for-9 for 128 yards and two TDs. We imagine Russell Wilson will still be at the helm when the Vikings play Seattle on Nov. 17.

It's interesting, we compared the all-time numbers on T-Jack and Christian Ponder recently:

Jackson: 17-17 record, 59.4 percent completion rate, 38 TDs, 35 INTs, 77.7 passer rating.

Ponder: 12-14 record, 59.2 percent completion rate, 31 TDs, 25 INTs, 77.1 passer rating.

Ponder, of course, is five years younger. But do with those numbers what you like (unless you are Clarenece Swamptown, in which case we don't trust what you will do).

If you are going to the game tonight, remember not to bring in a bag unless everyone can see exactly what is inside of it. And if you see a drunk and angry fan with a large bag fighting security, you know where to send video.
