The 2023/2024 Seattle Seahawks Thread

This THREAD is for general, perhaps smaller news about a divisional rival for the 2023 season. A place to keep tabs with news about The Seahawks. And, for general trash talking when you feel like it.

Major topics, such as Geno Smith breaks leg playing pickle ball, should remain stand alone topics.

Geno Smith had a great year.

4,282 passing Yards
30 TD
11 INT
100.9 QB Rating

If you are the Seahawks, I guess you sign him, right?

Signing Geno feels a little bit like signing Daniel Jones.

Some Concerning Geno Stats​

Hugh Millen raised an interesting point on KJR on Friday. He pointed to a stat provided by PFF listing ‘turnover worthy plays’ by each quarterback. Smith had the second most in the NFL, just behind Josh Allen. Millen also pointed out that Allen had far more ‘explosive’ passing plays and a lot more rushing yards to compensate for his erraticism.

Building on the point, he then noted that when looking at the top-10 quarterbacks — on average 80.6% of their turnover worthy plays had resulted in actual turnovers. In comparison, Geno Smith saw only 48% of his turnover worthy plays actually result in an interception.

That’s staggering.

If he’d thrown the 80.6% average like the rest of the QB’s in the top-10, he would’ve had 25 picks. Even if he’d had a still well below average 65% — he would’ve led the league in turnovers.

I’m not even sure if this accounts for stuff like the pick-six against San Francisco in Seattle which was called back for a fortuitous penalty. That play was blown dead, after all. So it could be even worse than these numbers suggest.

Regardless, Smith had incredible luck when it came to turnovers this season.

Yeah, Smith is a conundrum. Usually when a team pays these guys big money it’s after more than only one year of success. I don’t think Geno can carry a team. But even game managers are getting paid close to what star QBs are.

Plus Geno is 32. How long of a deal do they give him? I’m glad I’m not a Seahawk fan. I’d be waiting for backup Geno to show up at every game. It feels like they have no choice but to sign him even if they draft a QB this year.

Didn’t the Seahawks lose the QB coach this year too?

Russell Wilson Reportedly Asked Seahawks To Fire Pete Carroll, John Schneider​

Wilson and Carroll had clashed in recent years over the quarterback’s role in the offense and the overall direction of a team that had gradually declined after back-to-back Super Bowl appearances. Convinced that Carroll and Schneider were inhibiting his quest to win additional Super Bowls and individual awards, Wilson asked Seahawks ownership to fire both of them, according to league sources who spoke to The Athletic on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the details.

Good. I was wondering if they would consider taking that Will Levis player. Maybe they still could but this lowers the chances a bit.

Looks like the deal is heavily front loaded so they could take Levis or more likely Richardson and have Geno for a year or two with the rookie.

Is Anthony Richardson any good tho? Whenever i watch a Gator game this year and he didn't seem like the guy. At least as a passer. Hell I didn't even realize he was draft eligible until i saw twitter jack off over his combine measurables.

He was impressive at the combine on the field and most importantly in the interviews. We'll see what happens but he strikes me more as a Petey gamble than Levis does.

I don’t think he’s all that good. He doesn’t have Wilson’s deep accuracy. He’ll be a running QB.

Love it when other NFC teams over pay for marginal talent! But congrats to Geno, he probably thought a 100mil contract was gone forever.
