Seahawks Drew Lock mystery
There is a reason why Geno Smith is the Seahawks quarterback for Week 1, and it is not because he lit the world on fire, it is because Drew Lock continually creates mistakes. If you watched last night’s game, you probably have coarse voices from screaming at Drew Lock every time he throws the ball.
Drew Lock finished the game 13 for 24 with 171 passing yards, 1 touchdown, and 3 picks. Lock ended the game with a pass rating of 51.2. Yikes will be an understatement for that poor performance as all of Lock’s interceptions came with a clean pocket.
You can blame COVID, and you can blame the amount of reps Lock got, but the decision to start Geno is the correct one. The Seahawks cannot constantly give the ball over to their opponents and fall behind in games quickly.
This is not a short sample of course, as Drew Lock had the same issue with the Broncos, especially during his 2020 season wherein he had 15 interceptions. The Seahawks gave Lock every bit of chance to prove he is worth it to be the number one starter for this team during the preseason. However, just like how he performed during last night’s game vs the Cowboys, he threw that chance away.
