Geno Smith: Stuttering Offense A ‘Collective’ Issue

“We need to score,” said Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith. “We need to score, keep drives alive, get more plays, more opportunities, and just finish drives.”

Ahead of Thursday night’s Week 3 matchup against the Atlanta Falcons, the Seahawks have huffed and puffed in offense.

Seattle’s offense hasn’t scored a single point in their last six quarters of football. While Geno Smith says everyone has to contribute, some increased yardage would come in handy about now.

In their last game against the 49ers, the offense didn’t score at all. The Seahawks’ 234.5 average yards this season is the fewest by the franchise since 2011.

“We are just going to take what they give us until they start to play us more in man coverage and up in our faces,” Geno Smith said. “It doesn’t make sense just to try and air it out just for the sake of doing that. I’m always going to take what they give us and try to be efficient on offense. That’s the main goal, to be efficient and to move the ball to score.

“As the run game begins to come along more and as we continue to stay efficient, they are going to get tired of the completions and things like that,” Smith said. “They are going to press us, get in our faces, and try to make us beat them by getting behind them, which I have full confidence in.”

“The past two games, again, it’s been a lot of shell coverage. Even when there has been press coverage, the safeties are playing over the top, so they are really mindful of No. 16 (Lockett) and No. 14 (Metcalf) out there. We can expect that, they are great players. Offense is a collective thing, it’s not a one guy or two guy thing, so we all have to continue to develop collectively as an offense and figure out ways to move the chains and score points.”
