Seattle Post-Intelligencer: Seattle...:
RENTON — Barring a setback, it appears as if Tarvaris Jackson will return to his role as the team’s starting quarterback this week against Dallas.
At least that’s what Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Monday.
“He’s definitely in my mind, he’s starting unless he can’t at this point,” Carroll said. “So it’s a different way of looking at it this week than last week.”
Jackson, nursing a strained pectoral, was limited in practice last week. Carroll estimated that backup Charlie Whitehurst took about 85 percent of the snaps in preparation for the Bengals game.
Whitehurst started despite Jackson being active, but was replaced by Jackson after three possessions. Jackson went on to throw for a career-high 323 yards in a 34-12 Bengals win.
How will Carroll approach practice this week?
“We’re going to kind of gauge it as he takes it,” Carroll said. “Our trainers are ready to kind of watch him and model it after what he’s capable of doing.”

Quarterback Tarvaris Jackson was able to play Sunday.Coach Pete Carroll didn't necessarily want him, too, though. That's why Charlie Whitehurst started Sunday's game, the Seahawks hoping to get another week's rest for Jackson in his recovery from a pectoral strain."I was hoping to see that we could rest him another week," Carroll said. "I was hoping...
Three things we learned
Tarvaris Jackson is Seattle's best quarterback choice.There can be no dispute now, can there? Charlie Whitehurst started the game and the Seahawks failed to gain a first down on two of their first three possessions, and that one drive they did manage to move the ball was helped greatly by a dumber-than-dumb personal-foul penalty on Cincinnati, negating...
Pete Carroll admits he's dealing with a frustrated team after the Seattle Seahawks dropped to 2-5.
Pete Carroll has done a lot of positive things in Seattle in a short time. He’s turned over the roster into a young group with a promising defense. He’s drafted pretty well and won a playoff game. There is no denying one of Carroll’s shortcomings. He has been one of the worst gameday coaches in the…
My bad. That’s pretty much what Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said during the 20 minutes he took questions after his team’s 34-12 loss to Cincinnati. Carroll was not only talking about his team’s poor performance, but his curious choice of going for it on fourth-and-two from the 3-yard line with 14 seconds left. The Seahawks ran Marshawn Lynch up the middle...
The honeymoon is over in Seattle. Pete Carroll assembled a staff of losers and now the team is spiraling downwards.
In what felt an awful lot like a repeat of the Week 4 game against the Falcons, the Seahawks lost but managed to get their offense back on track after a terrible start with Whitehurst under center. Coverage on special teams is still a concern, and the offensive line struggled all game, but there were plenty of positives, too. Richard Sherman played much better than anyone could...

It seemed as if all order would be restored for the Seahawks offense this week against the Bengals.
Tarvaris Jackson is active. Marshawn Lynch is active. So are Max Unger and Zach Miller.
One surprise scratch, however, is Mike Williams, who practiced all week. So a curious move there...
The Seahawks starting quarterback was healthy enough to be active.He just wasn't starting.Charlie Whitehurst started Sunday's game for Seattle, but after the Seahawks fell behind, punting on two of their first three possessions with Whitehurst, he summoned Tarvaris Jackson into the game."Nothing was happening," coach Pete Carroll said. "Nothing was moving....
