NFL: Seattle Seahawks at Kansas City Chiefs Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

To many outsiders looking in, Geno Smith’s 2022 season greatly exceeded their expectations. To many of his Seattle Seahawks teammates, Geno Smith’s season was somewhat expected and not at all surprising. With a new contract, new draft picks, and some of the best regarded weapons in the league, Geno will surprise no one. The question now is, what will Geno do in 2023, his 2nd full year as QB1 for the ‘Hawks? What do you think are realistic expectations for our fearless field leader? Do you think he re-breaks the franchise record for passing yards? How many touchdowns/interceptions are we expecting? How far will Geno take us this season? Let us know what you think in the comments below. Thanks for being here!
