Geno Smith: Monday night wasn’t the Seahawks’ season, I got right back to work

Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith didn’t take much time to celebrate after Monday night’s win over the Broncos.

Smith said on Friday that the Seahawks know Monday night was not their season, and that by Tuesday morning, he was already getting himself ready both physically and mentally for this week’s game against the 49ers.

“I just went back to work the next day,” Smith said. “Got right into the weight room and jumped right into San Fran, and diving into work. That’s the great thing about being in the NFL, every week is a championship week. You’re always going to have a tough opponent. It’s not about what you did last week, it’s what you do in the present moment. So for us it’s about not riding that emotional high and just continuing to focus on the work and the process, and then as the games come along, expecting to win and getting back to work.”

Even after winning in Week One, not many people believe in the Seahawks, which is why they’re nine-point underdogs this week against the 49ers. Smith is going to have to keep working to get people believing he can lead the Seahawks to a big season.

    Geno doesn’t want to admit week 1 was his super bowl… because it was

    Every stat but the score says the Seahawks got blown out last week, enjoy the win before reality hits this weekend.

    Please don’t let the Seahawks win another game.

    You know that would mean they have the first pick and get a franchise QB, right? And then of course they’d have Denver’s first and second pick along with theirs.

    Pete will just draft a safety to replace the always injured Adams and prove to everyone how smart he is.
    Pete’s ego is why the Hawks had a 1 year dynasty.

  4. He gets a lot of hate on these boards but Geno seems to be a guy with his head on straight. So many weird things happened early in his career from falling in the draft, losing his job by getting punched in the face by a teammate in the locker room, to being the guy who ended Eli Mannings starting streak.

    He’s had a good career with 10+ years in the league. I’m glad he is getting a chance where they seem to appreciate him.

    Take a Look at the Quarterback Ratings, then get back to me….

  6. Given how strange of a path he’s been on in the league, most guys would have went to the CFL and call it quits after a season or two there. But credit where it’s due: he stuck it out. Even if he’s not on the best team in a tougher division, he’s hanging in there.

  7. Geno Smith is a horrible QB, his 2nd half stats in that Denver game is who he truly is as a QB. He will revert back to himself in coming weeks, he’s one of the worst QBs in the face of pressure I’ve seen in the last 10YRs and he is by far and away the worst QB1 in the NFCW. He stands zero chance matching up against the offenses of the NFCW score for score, TD for TD.

    Who cares what this irrelevant team does?
    =======

    Tell us about how relevant the Pats are with so called genius Belicheat but no Brady.

  9. Enjoy your win Cinderfella because the clock will strike midnight soon enough on your back up QB skill set. With that said, I hope you wear those glass slippers long enough to beat Clara.

    Potential* franchise QB. The draft isn’t automatic.
