7, ESPN’s Mike Sando rates the Seahawks No. 1 in backup QB situations for teams that have the best odds of winning the Super Bowl. Sando writes:
“Teams can win while minimizing the QB position if they play great defense and/or run the ball effectively. The Seahawks can do both as well as any team. (Tarvaris) Jackson grew up in the offensive system while playing under current Seattle coordinator Darrell Bevell in Minnesota. He went 7-7 as the Seahawks’ starter in 2011, when the team had less of a supporting cast.
“Seattle has a great supporting cast with playmakers on both sides of the ball,” one GM said. “Look at the Patriots or Broncos and you see average teams with phenomenal quarterbacks.”
