Hasselbeck out, Tarvaris in for Seahawks

Matt Hasselbeck's long been the face of the Seattle Seahawks franchise, but he won't be there in 2011 and it appears as if Tarvaris Jackson will be charged with filling his shoes. (Although, if you're a true Eye on Football devotee, this isn't that big of a surprise.)

That's according to several different reports out of the Seattle area, beginning with Danny O'Neil of the Seattle Times, who first reported that the Seahawks would not re-sign Hasselbeck for the 2011 season.

O'Neil also reported shortly thereafter that the Seahawks had "acquired another quarterback" though he didn't immediately confirm that it was Jackson. Dave Mahler of 950 KJR in Seattle (via Brian McIntyre) did report that Jackson had agreed to terms, and O'Neil's since confirmed that news.

So, what that means is that the Seahawks, who struggled mightily on offense in 2010, now head into the new year with Charlie Whitehurst and Jackson as their primary options to get the team back in the playoffs, barring some shocker of a trade in the near future.

It's an odd move, but it's also indicative of the fact that the Seahawks weren't willing to give up whatever draft pick and/or player was necessary in order to acquire Kevin Kolb or Kyle Orton.

Or that Pete Carroll feels like he can help Jackson despite a previous record of mediocrity. Which, now that I think about it, sounds a lot like the other guy on the roster, Whitehurst.

There is some chatter, however, that Jackson's signing is part of a duel package-thing designed to land Sidney Rice, since both former Vikings played under current Seattle OC Darrell Bevell who wasn't retained when Leslie Frazier took over team as the full-time head coach.

Whether the Seahawks can sign Rice and then whether they can improve upon their -- ahem -- success in Minnesota remains to be seen.

This makes sense to me as Luck is the QB teams want and if my hawks lose enough games they can get him.
Wow..I could be wrong here, but isnt the point of being a fan is to root for your team to win?  I guess they do things differently down your way.  Most pathetic fan written post I have ever seen.

Oh well I guess us as Seahawk fans will have to deal with the bad, it's not like we haven't been through this before. Will Jaskson survive in Seattle time will tell, but I know this much after enjoying years with sucess with Matt it will not take much before the 12th man lets jackson know how they feel about him.
