In Week 16 of the NFL, the Seattle Seahawks took on the San Francisco 49ers. Much was at stake. If the Seahawks won, and the Chargers beat the Lions, the Seahawks would still be in the hunt for the final NFC playoff spot. The Seahawks, however, did not beat the 49ers. And after the game, one thought crept into my head: “Tarvaris Jackson needs to go.”
His line for the day was 15 completions on 28 attempt—just a tad under 50 percent. Jackson threw for 163 yards, with one touchdown and no interceptions. However, it’s one stat that really made the difference both in the game, and my belief that he needs to go.
Late in the fourth quarter, with the Seahawks down by two points, they were driving. On 3rd-and-3 from the 49ers 48-yard line, Jackson was flushed from the pocket. Finding no open receivers, he ran for the first down, but was stopped and tackled, and in the process, lost the football. The 49ers recovered, and eventually went on to win the game.
