Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there today — Wednesday, November 9 — about your Seattle Seahawks.
Geno Smith Ranked Among NFL's Elite
Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith leads the charge in hopes of pushing the team's win-streak to five games. Through nine contests, Smith is ranked across the top-10 in every major passing category. Now, NFL Insider and former quarterback David Carr ranks Geno Smith amongst the league's Top-15 offensive players following Week 9.
Each week, the former NFL gunslinger ranks the top-15 offensive performers. For the first time, Smith makes an appearance on the list for his efforts through nine games, completing 73 percent (No. 1) of his passes for 2199 yards (No. 6), 15 touchdowns (T-5th) and a 68 QBR (No. 4).
Carr breaks down the insertion of Smith, who has garnered early Comeback Player of The Year as well as Most Valuable Player recognition.
Seattle Seahawks · QB
It's time Smith enters my rankings after leading the 6-3 Seahawks, who've now won four straight, to the top of the NFC West at midseason. There was one moment in Sunday's game against the Cardinals where I thought all the Seahawks' magic was going to unravel. Smith threw a poor screen pass that was picked and returned 30 yards for a TD by Zaven Collins. But Smith's response to that play helps explain why Seattle is in such a good position, as he led the team on a 13-play, 75-yard TD drive to retake the lead. Smith leads the NFL in completion percentage (73.1) and has a career-high 15 pass TDs entering Week 10.
Through nine games, Smith has connected with seven or more receivers in eight contests. Seattle will face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Munich Sunday in hopes to push to 7-3.
