The 2011 NFL season for the Seattle Seahawks has come to a close. Although they ended up with the same 7-9 record as last season, progress has definitely been made in the Pete Carroll regime. Looking back, how did we fare this season and what’s next? Let’s take a brief position-by-position look.
An argument could be made that the quarterback position during 2011 was a mess. Tarvaris Jackson threw for 3,091 yards (20th among quarterbacks), along with 14 TD’s (22nd) and 13 INT’s (17th), hardly impressive numbers. Charlie Whitehurst started one game, and showed he’s clearly not the quarterback of the future.
I didn’t give the quarterback position an F because Tarvaris Jackson was never asked to put up Drew Brees-like numbers. Although his numbers were not impressive, Jackson was mainly asked to be a “game manager” to back the running of Marshawn Lynch, and he did that in most games this year.

"Seahawks? PFFT. Why the hell did you guys sign Tarvaris?" That was what a TSA agent said to me before I boarded my flight west for that Seahawks v Cardinals game last September. Few of Seattle's offseason moves were more derided than the twin decisions to let Matt Hasselbeck walk and replace him with ex-Vikings QB Tarvaris Jackson. I'll admit that at that moment...
