Sounds like they might be in the market for Tarvaris Jackson if Seattle releases him. That should tell you all the more you need to know about how bad Arizona's current QB situation is.
Tarvaris would probably be pretty decent in Arizona. He didn't have a phenomenal year last year, but he was injured for a large portion of it and we didn't have any wide receivers. Having Fitz and Floyd on the outsides will make any QB more comfortable, and they've got a pretty good defense and their running game is looking good so far. That's a T-Jax kind of team. As many people know, Fitz and Jackson work out together in the offseason, so there's that, too. But part of what makes Arizona's QB situation look so bad is that both guys they have in there are in some sense "projects," or are at least "unproven," but neither is a rookie or someone who was looked at as a developmental prospect coming into the league. Way more of a "Well, this is who we've got," situation.

Setting aside potential and considering the ability for a QB to lead his team to wins right at this present moment, I don't think an Arizona offense quarterbacked by Jackson would be a joke. Wouldn't be a juggernaut, but who else remembers Luke McCown and Matt Leinart having 400-yard games when Larry's feeling good and has someone drawing coverage to the other side? It can happen. But putting Jackson in Arizona, once he learns the offense, would put AZ's QB situation, in my opinion, about on par (or above) with Jacksonville, Tennessee, Cleveland, Miami, Tampa Bay, Seattle, Kansas City, Minnesota, Buffalo, Oakland, St. Louis, San Francisco or the Jets. I don't know if any of those teams has a starter who's currently a clear step above Jackson, so if Arizona were to sign him it's not like the bell's tolling for the death of their season already.
