  • Seahawks' Geno Smith: Tops 100 yards in preseason start

    Smith completed 10 of 15 pass attempts for 101 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions while rushing twice for nine yards and a touchdown during the Seahawks' 32-25 preseason loss to the Steelers on Saturday.

    Smith operated as the starting quarterback during Saturday's preseason opener and played the entire first half. While he didn't pass for any touchdowns, he showcased his rushing ability with a score on the ground late in the second quarter. Although Drew Lock has outplayed Smith in practice in recent days, Smith has worked mainly with the first-team offense early in camp and turned in a solid performance during the preseason opener.

  • Seahawks' Geno Smith: Tabbed as preseason starter

    Smith will start Seattle's preseason opener Saturday against Pittsburgh, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

    Drew Lock reportedly outplayed Smith by a wide margin in Seattle's mock game Tuesday, but it won't be enough to flip the depth chart, at least not yet. Smith has taken most of the first-team reps this summer, after completing 65 of 95 passes for 702 yards, five touchdowns and one interception in four games last season. The numbers are impressive at first glance, but Smith also took 13 sacks for 117 yards and added only 42 yards rushing. No qualified passer had a sack rate worse than 11.8 percent (Justin Fields) in 2021, while Smith was at 12 percent over the limited sample.

  • Seahawks' Geno Smith: Listed atop depth chart

    Smith is listed with the first-string offense on Seattle's initial preseason depth chart, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

    Smith started the Seahawks' team scrimmage last Saturday, and the first depth chart of the preseason seems to reflect that he remains ahead of Drew Lock in the quarterback competition. During last week's scrimmage, Lock helmed the second-team offense. Seattle's preseason opener, Aug. 13 in Pittsburgh, will serve as the first of three upcoming contests to help fully settle the competition between Smith and Lock ahead of Week 1.

  • Seahawks' Geno Smith: Struggles in team scrimmage

    Smith completed 10 of 19 passes for 94 yards (4.9 YPA) in Saturday's team scrimmage, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

    Smith played nearly the entire game with the first-team offense against the second-team defense. Meanwhile, Drew Lock operated with the second-team offense and played against the first-team defense, and he managed to complete 18 of 27 passes for 185 yards and a touchdown. Head coach Pete Carroll mostly avoided making any judgements about the quarterback competition in his press conference, but Lock clearly outperformed Smith on Saturday, even if the former's stat line was merely mediocre. There are still three preseason games to settle the competition, the first of which is Saturday, Aug. 13 against the Steelers.

  • Seahawks' Geno Smith: Taking first-team reps

    Smith handled all the first-team reps during Wednesday's practice while Drew Lock practiced with the second team, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports. "Geno is in the lead," head coach Pete Carroll said. "He's ahead and he ain't looking back."

    Carroll admitted that Lock still has an opportunity to win the starting job, but he seems optimistic that Smith can secure the starting role by the end of the preseason. Smith was serviceable over four games (three starts) last season, as he completed 68 percent of his passes for 702 yards (7.4 YPA), five touchdowns and an interception. He also ran nine times for 42 yards and a score. The run game figures to be the focal point of Seattle's offense, but Smith will have some excellent receiving weapons -- Tyler Lockett, DK Metcalf and Noah Fant -- if he does win the job.
