The Seahawks quarterbacks were a slightly mixed bag versus the Steelers
Geno was Geno
- Not much to say here, he looked like he looked last year. Very average, with some good moments, not great moments. Nothing bad, but nothing leaving fans excited about him being the guy.
Lock was Lock
- Just like Geno was what we thought, Lock proved to be what we’ve seen and heard in camp so far, wildly inconsistent.
- Lock overall had a really good game. When given time, you can just see the different level of zip on the ball. He was accurate and the offense moved well. His arm strength was key as he looked great in the red zone, helping Seattle get 15 points on 11/15 for 102 yards and two TDs. I can see where John Schneider wanted to get him on their roster, there’s some real poor man’s Josh Allen in there.
- It’s not the wow plays that have defined Lock’s career so far, it’s the oh no’s! That was also on display as we saw in the final moments, with Seattle only a couple first downs away from kicking the game-winning field goal, Lock misread the blitz coverage and got blindsided. The major hit caused Lock to fumble the ball, and the game away.
- That mistake is not all on him, but he’s the quarterback and has to own the pre-snap reads. Those types of mistakes are the reason why Seattle will likely continue to give Geno the first shot at the job.
What to look for in Week 2
- One week of football down, and I believe there are a lot more positives than negatives.
- The quarterback position will not be the worst in the league.
- The line of scrimmage looks like an area where Seattle can win. That hasn’t been said in a while.
- Hopefully, we’ll see Artie Burns and Sidney Jones return, to get a better read on the cornerback situation.
- The Seahawks host the Bears on Thursday, let’s hope they get after it, play well, and stay healthy.
As always, Go Hawks!
