Jackson takes hold of QB job
(AP) — Seattle Seahawks quarterback Tarvaris Jackson was limited in practice Thursday but said he continues to feel improvement in his strained pectoral muscle.
Jackson has posted the two highest passing totals of his career this season, including the career-high 323 yards against Cincinnati despite the injured pectoral muscle last Sunday.
Jackson is doing enough to make the Seahawks think he could be a long-term option at quarterback.
Carroll likes to view the quarterback position as that of a point guard, whose job is to distribute the ball to the team's playmakers.
Jackson has been given the freedom by offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell to call plays at the line of scrimmage out of the no-huddle offense Seattle has been using for the last month.
