Seattle Seahawks QB1 Geno Smith played a great game, and Twitter reacted - Field Gulls

What an incredible game. Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith started his first season opener since 2014, and needless to say, he couldn’t have asked for a better start to his campaign as QB1 in Seattle. Smith came out firing and looked in charge of the offense from the opening snap. At the end of the second quarter, he had a single incompletion and had already led the team on three scoring drives. Literally, this was the best first half of football Geno Smith has ever played as a pro.

He wasted absolutely no time in engineering a touchdown drive to start the game, and was on a tear throughout the entire first half; he finished a ridiculous 17 of 18 for 164 and a pair of touchdowns.

The second half proved to be much tougher on the offense as a whole, but Smith continued to play a great game. Aside from the Metcalf fumble, he was able to move the offense and wasn’t afraid to mix it up when he had to. He mostly took what he could get and showed good pocket presence during a game that featured a completely rebuilt offensive line – starting two rookie tackles!

Let’s just say… TV announcers haven’t exactly been subtle in their feelings towards Russell Wilson. We don’t need to live, so I’ll limit it to this:

Finally, Geno Smith and the Seattle Seahawks pulled off a significant upset over Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncosand that is something we can all celebrate.
