Seahawks’ QB Geno Smith claims he wants to finish his career in Seattle after crushing defeat vs 49ers

Geno Smith led the Seattle Seahawks to a one-point lead over the strongly fancied San Francisco 49ers in the first half Saturday, completing nine of ten passes and throwing a precise touchdown pass to DK Metcalf. He struggled in the second half, committing two mistakes as the 49ers pulled away for a 41-23 wild-card round victory at Levi’s Stadium. Smith was overcome with emotion afterward, his eyes welling up as he expressed his wish to stay with the Seahawks. Smith, whose one-year contract ends in March, was asked what will be most essential to him as he approaches free agency.

Smith asserted, “I want to finish my career in Seattle,” he said. “I want to be here. The town, the city, the team, Coach [Pete] Carroll, the organization -they all embraced me. I was a guy who probably could have been out of the league. They embraced me, and I want to repay them for that.” If it were up to Geno Smith, he’d like to stay with the Seahawks in the future, as he stated during the postgame news conference.

Smith had to beat out Drew Lock in the preseason quarterback competition to become the Seahawks’ starting quarterback. Geno Smith has proven to be more than simply a good starter for the Seahawks, proving that Seattle made the proper pick. The Seahawks win right away in Week 1 of the 2022 NFL regular season against the team their former quarterback is now playing for, with Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos getting punched in the mouth by Smith and company.

Geno Smith completed 25 of 35 passes for 253 yards and two touchdowns with an interception against the 49ers in the Wild Card round. He struggled against the Niners’ pass rush, being thrown to the ground three times for a loss of 25 yards. Nonetheless, Smith has made a compelling case for why the Seahawks should keep him, with the team surprisingly having a successful season with him.
