The Seahawks had one of the most consistent quarterbacks in the league for a decade in Russell Wilson. But after trading Wilson to the Denver Broncos, they find themselves with one of the worst QB rooms in the entire NFL. Geno Smith and Lock are battling it out to be the starter on the opening day of the season (via King5), and that’s not an enviable position for any professional team to be in.
Perennial backup Smith has a better understanding of the offense but Lock (could) has a higher ceiling. The latter flopped miserably in Denver but finds himself with a chance of bouncing back. There’s a lot of pressure on the young man ahead of a potentially brutal season for Seattle.
