Geno Smith wrote back in a big way by throwing the game-winning touchdown pass on Sunday against the Detroit Lions. The Seattle Seahawks quarterback, faced with backups at both tackle spots and even backup rookie center Olu Oluwatimi for a handful of snaps, threw for over 300 yards and a pair of scores to Tyler Lockett in what was one of the most entertaining games of the Week 2 NFL slate.
But we’re not here really to talk about Geno’s on-field heroics or even that nearly catastrophic sack he took near the end of regulation. We’re focusing in on his post-game fit, which is prime meme material on social media already.
Everyone please be seated, because Professor Geno Smith has arrived.
He looks like a teacher at the school Morgan Freeman was the principal at in Lean On Me https://t.co/y0bnuVk0YF— JP Acosta (Pug Dederson Stan Acct) (@acosta32_jp) September 17, 2023

Showed this to Geno, he laughed— John Boyle (@johnpboyle) September 17, 2023
I don’t think we can underestimate Geno’s meme-ability. Last week he gave us “OH MY GOD” after Aaron Donald was charging at him, and last year he gave us “They wrote me off, I ain’t write back though.” This has to count for something when MVP is decided at the end of the year.
