Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there today — Wednesday, September 28 — about your Seattle Seahawks.
While Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith is focusing on getting the team back to .500, it's worth taking a note of his progression by the numbers. As Seattle prepares for Week 4 against the Detroit Lions on the road, they'll need Smith to continue to put up big numbers. Here's how Smith matches up to the rest of the league through three weeks.
This week's Seahawks mailbag fields a question regarding the possibility of seeing backup quarterback Drew Lock anytime soon. With Smith's 77.5 completion percentage ranking the highest of all quarterbacks (Min. 100 attempts) - the answer is no. In Sunday's 27-23 loss to the Atlanta Falcons, Smith threw for 325 yards, two touchdownsand one interception. The performance is welcome progression after the offense was held scoreless in Seattle's Week 2 loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
Seahawks Head Coach Pete Carroll discussed the gameplan for Smith and his pleasure with the quarterback's performance despite the tough loss.
"Well, I made some comment responding last week about the throwing game and Geno (Smith) because of what you saw," said Carroll. "He was in command of it, and he's got it. We didn't do a whole lot differently this week, but we just knew that he was going to be able to pull it off and put it together in a big way. That was not going to be an area that we needed to be concerned about. We thought that he could throw a good ballgame for us, and he did. He was really good in a lot of critical situations, made a lot of tough passes, timing was really good, and had 3rd down wins, but we just missed having an enormous day on 3rd downs with our 3rd and 3s that we missed. I think this a good time for us on offense, I think this is the time for us to really go."
