After another bad showing by the offense, do you think it’s time for a QB change?
Who should be Seattle's starting QB for week 3?
Topics: Charlie Whitehurst, Josh Portis, Seattle Seahawks, Tarvaris Jackson

Enough of this calling for CW already, we haven’t seen ANYTHING from him to indicate he is better than TJ.
CW, 2010, Giants at the Seahawks = score 41-7 beat down (did I mention this was a home game?)
We need to give TJ a shot at home, hopefully the line will start to improve so that we don’t have to leave half the team back in protection.
You also know as well as I do that PC is preaching to TJ to not turn over the ball. (Same as CW in the Rams game last year) CW did NOTHING in that game to show us that he was a big time QB, it was as safe and boring play calling as it comes, and we won because the RAMS were terrible in that game and we had the home field advantage. CW did not “win” that game for us.
TJ is dinking the ball and only making the safe throws, and you know it’s because that is what PC is telling him to do, and as the play calling obviously supports. PC needs to grow a pair, and let TJ off his leash so we can see if he can or can’t do it.
@glor I can’t really argue with you here. In all honesty, I’m not actually someone who want’s to see much of Whitehurst. That said, I’m pretty sure I’m in the minority. I wanted to see how many people wanted a change.
We’ll re-visit this in a few weeks and see if people’s attitudes have change between now and then.
I hear ya Keith, It was interesting to hear Pete essentially admit that the safe play we see TJ executing is exactly what coaching staff is asking him to do. Oh, and yes, we are starting another offensive line combo next week
