The Seattle Seahawks are 6-3 and face another winnable game in Week 11 against the Los Angeles Rams. Of course, the Rams seem to always give Seattle issues and that includes a Week 1 destruction of Seattle. That wasn't a fun game to watch, so let's hope Week 11 is different.

Seattle should be more prepared for what Los Angeles is trying to do. Coming into Week 1, the Rams didn't have receiver Cooper Kupp and had a bunch of new guys in key spots. Seattle looked like they had the better roster. None of that mattered.

The Rams are now 3-6 and about where people expected. They should not beat the Seahawks on Sunday. I thought the same thing ahead of Week 1, though. But here is some news for midway through the week of Seattle and LA round 2.

Dejounte Murray comments on the Geno Smith situation

It is a good thing that Dejounte Murray doesn't coach football for the Seahawks because Seattle might have lost to the Commanders if he did. During the Seahawks blowout at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens in Week 9, Murray posted on X that he thinks a quarterback change is needed for the Seahawks.

Murray has a right to his opinion, as we all do, of course. He is also a Seattle native who went to the University of Washington. But he should also know that changing quarterbacks in an in-game situation can affect a locker room. Plus, and let's be real, Drew Lock was going to do no better against the Ravens than Geno Smith did. Seattle's offensive line was terrible and receivers were not getting open.

There is no indication on X that Murray posted such a quarterback change should occur during the Seahawks and Commanders game when Smith finished Seattle's last two drives 9 of 10 for 100 yards and a touchdown. He also led the game-winning drive that resulted in a Jason Myers field goal. Still, Murray is just a football fan - not a player - like the rest of us and his knee-jerk reaction is just part of fandom.
