I know Geno isn't a fan fave of many, but some of us have seen some pretty shoddy QB play going back. Who is the worst starting QB you ever saw play? I'm not talking about a backup that never played, but someone who actually saw some starting time.

Whatever criteria floats your boat. Maybe it's lack of talent, maybe it's incompetence, maybe it's unrealized expectations, maybe it's what we sacrificed, maybe it's a miserable game you had to endure in the Kingdome/Husky Stadium/ Seahawks Stadium??

Please discuss with stories!

Close enough to be a tie IMHO:

Gelbaugh started eight games in the Seahawks’ worst season ever — in 1992, they went 2-14 and set an NFL record by scoring only 140 points, averaging 8.8 a game. In ’92, Gelbaugh went 121 of 255 (47.5 percent) with six touchdowns and 11 interceptions.

Stouffer: Drafted No. 6 overall in 1987 by the then-Phoenix Cardinals, dealt to Seattle. During that dismal ’92 season, Stouffer lost all seven games he started. In his short career as an NFL quarterback, Stouffer finished with seven touchdowns and 19 interceptions.

Well, Mitch Tribiski was taken over Mahomes and Watson (and massage boy was VERY good before all his drama) And they traded UP to get him. Dayum.
That could be in the running for worst draft decision of all time.

Charlie Whitehurst was god awful. I've never seen a short sideline throw result in being launched nearly into the stands. God he sucked.
But but but he was clipboard Jesus...maybe he was throwing the ball to an angel or something...someone only he could see? hmm

Stouffer was a third string backup so can't really fault him for not being good. Mirer was a starter and threw more picks than TD's 3 out of the 4 years he was here.
The Seahawks gave up a 1st rounder for Stouffer. If the Colts hadn't overpaid for Fredd Young, that trade would've looked a lot worse.

I went with Mirer because none of the others had long enough of a tenure to really make us suffer.

Mirer was great until the NFL figured out he was only capable of throwing to one side of the field. Then he was god awful and the torture just went on and on, with the coaching staff wanting to "fix" him. There's a reason he never went on to any success elsewhere after.

Dan McGwire. He was an 1st round pick in 1991, played 13 games in 5 years, and has 2 TDs total in his career. He's in the Seahawk HOS (Hall of Shame). The fact that Gale Gilbert and Sean Salisbury aren't on the list says a lot. Hadn't there been a Dan McGwire failing, they would be vying for the worst spot.

Stouffer, we lost more getting him then a 1st rounder, we lost Kenny Easley as well, Kenny was supposed to be a swap for Stouffer, Cardinals found his Kidney ailment and from that point on the bad blood started between Easley and the Seahawks. I do remember Stouffers Butt pass however, pretty comical.

Also, we passed up Brett Favre for McGwire, though Behring would've squandered him, anyway.
