Depending on how you view this season as a Seahawks fan, this game was either a must-win or the Battle of the Draft Pick Bowl.
For fans wanting to see competent defense and victories, Sunday was not your day.
The Seahawks fell to the winless Atlanta Falcons 27-23, with a late comeback falling just short after a brutal hold call late that derailed a drive that was entering the goal line in the final minutes.
Nest notes: Thoughts on what the Seahawks did in Week 3
Geno is the perfect QB for this in-between era.
The Seahawks are in a peculiar spot. After an emotional victory in week one over Denver, the Seahawks look like a bottom ten team in the league. That probably would be bottom three (still may end up that way) were it not for Geno Smith playing like a decent NFL quarterback.
This is very good news in the sense that Seattle has someone leading the offense that is very unlikely to fold under pressure, or fail to do some of the basic principles you need from the most important position in sports.
This is also not very good news if you’re in the business of tanking. Many fans are, I don’t believe Pete Carroll and John Schneider are.
This team really reminds me of the 2011 Seahawks. A very bad team early on that found themselves midway through the season and very nearly snuck into the playoffs. This squad has a few more holes and a few more veterans, but Geno reminds me so much of the best we saw in Tavares Jackson back then.
