The Seattle Seahawks win 17-16 Above the Denver Broncos Monday night in the first week of the regular season was perhaps the highlight of what the team did not do in the off season.
The Seahawks have gained a mess of players in their massive trade with the Broncos Quarterback Russell Wilson. The team could have traded for Baker Mayfield or someone else after getting Drew Luke to go along with Gino Smith but instead opted to take the quarterback fight in pre-season.
Smith, a veteran quarterback who has been with the Seahawks since 2020, won the fight and got a chance to take on the Broncos. It turned out to be the victor.
He summed up his night perfectly after the match.
“They crossed me out, but I won’t write again,” he told ESPN of the skeptics.
Smith was 23-for-28 with 195 passing yards and two passing touchdowns—one to Colby Parkinson and the other to Will Disley. Eight different Seahawks receivers earned a pass in the game.
“When people say ‘what I’ve been through,’ I think that’s a stretch, man. I’ve been in the NFL for 10 years, so to say what I’ve been through is funny. Then to say people wrote I’ve just been working.” This is what I mean by “I never write again.” He said on the team’s website, “I don’t listen to things like that.
“I just work. I know what I have inside of me. God has blessed me with talent but also passion and drive. As much as I am concerned about a naysayer or anything like that, I don’t get into that kind of thing. People can cross you out, but life is about what You make it. I’ve been fortunate enough to be in the NFL for 10 years and work my ass. It’s a team game, and we got a win tonight as a team.”
Seattle is now entering its second week 1-0 as Denver wonders what happened.
