The Seattle Seahawks fell to 6-5 after a loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Thanksgiving, and head coach Pete Carroll admitted that he would like to see quarterback Geno Smith get the ball out faster amid a tw0-game losing streak. Smith said that Pete Carroll is right.
“As you said, just processing and going through reads and getting the ball out to the designed guy within the rhythm of the play and the offense,” Geno Smith said, via Dugar, Michael-Shawn of The Athletic. “Coach is right: I've been probably holding the ball a little bit too long to try and see guys open instead of what I normal do (which is) to throw them open. Just trusting the guys, trusting myself, believing in what we're doing and getting the ball out and making sure that I'm throwing it pretty accurately so the guys can make catches and make great plays, because they're great players.”
The upcoming schedule does not get much easier for the Seahawks, as they will play the Dallas Cowboys on the road this Thursday before playing the 49ers again. After that, they will host the Philadelphia Eagles before ending the year with games against the Tennessee Titans, Pittsburgh Steelers and Arizona Cardinals.
The Seahawks are hoping to return for the playoffs, especially after making a trade for defensive lineman Leonard Williams with the New York Giants. It will be interesting to see if the Seahawks can pull an upset in these next three games, which would be huge for their playoff chances.
