Where do you stand on Tarvaris Jackson?

You won’t find Tarvaris Jackson’s name on many Pro Bowl ballots, not with the 23rd-best QB rating and just as many touchdowns as interceptions.

But the Seahawks quarterback is playing well enough to win. At least he has in the second half of the season, as the Seahawks have gone 5-1 to re-enter the NFC playoff picture. In that span, Jackson has thrown six touchdowns and three interceptions while completing over 61 percent of his passes.

Jackson, who is 7-5 in games he has started this season, is in the first year of a two-year deal. Has he played well enough to preclude the Seahawks from taking a quarterback with their first pick in April’s draft? Bob and Groz debate in the video below.
