Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith has a decent matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Munich this week. Check out his week 10 and college.
Geno Smith : Seahawks | Week 10 | college | contract
Eugene Cyril “Geno” Smith is an American football quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks of the National Football League (NFL).
|Born:||October 10, 1990
|Height:||6 ft 3 in (1.91 m)|
|Weight:||221 lb (100 kg)|
He played college football at West Virginia, leading the Mountaineers to multiple bowl games, breaking numerous passing records, and garnering multiple awards before getting drafted by the New York Jets in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft.
After two inconsistent seasons as the Jets’ starting quarterback, Smith eventually lost his starting position due to injuries in his final two years with the team.
He then spent time as the backup for the New York Giants, Los Angeles Chargers and Seattle Seahawks before unexpectedly making a career resurgence as the Seahawks’ starting quarterback in 2022.
Smith signed with the Seattle Seahawks on May 15, 2019. He competed with Paxton Lynch for the backup job behind Russell Wilson.
He was released on August 31, 2019, along with Lynch, but was re-signed the next day, earning the backup job. Also he did not see any game action during his first season with the team.
Smith re-signed with the Seahawks on May 20, 2020. His only appearance came in Week 14 blowout 40–3 win over his former team the New York Jets as he played out the final 16:26 of the game.
He went 4 of 5 for 33 yards, leading the Seahawks to a field goal on the second of his two drives.
Smith re-signed with the team for a third season on April 22, 2021. He made his first appearance of the 2021 season in Week 5 against the Los Angeles Rams after Russell Wilson left the game with a finger injury.
Smith finished with 131 passing yards, a touchdown (which was his first since 2017), and an interception as the Seahawks lost 17–26.
The Seahawks re-signed Smith on April 19, 2022, but the NFL disapproved Smith’s new contract that same day after conducting the league’s mandatory review.
On August 26, 2022, Smith was announced as the starting quarterback for the Seahawks’ Week 1 matchup against the Denver Broncos, the team that former Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was traded to during the offseason.
Geno Smith week 10
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith has a decent matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Munich this week.
The 32-year-old has been on a hot streak, throwing multiple touchdowns in three straight games.
Tampa Bay’s defense came up big last week, only allowing Mathew Stafford to throw for 165 yards and sacking him four times.
Geno Smith will be in for a test this week in Germany, but he has surprised us all season and could still put together a nice game.
The energy for this game should be electric, as apparently the Seahawks are huge in Germany and Tom Brady is popular everywhere.
The line movement towards the Bucs (Tampa opened -1 and got as high as -3) is concerning, as is Tampa being good at stopping what Seattle wants to most (run). But I’m backing Geno Smith and Pete Carroll as dogs as long as anyone wants to keep giving them points.
