NFL: Preseason-Dallas Cowboys at Seattle Seahawks Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

If there is anything an exciting and retooled offense can reveal is just how bad you still are at the things you were bad at with the previous group of players. Our Seattle Seahawks look like their offense may become one of the league’s best, but they must earn that distinction. To do so they will need to improve where they have lacked: 3rd down execution and red zone efficiency. Geno Smith, our fearless and dynamic leader understands these things and trust, he has been working on improving the parts of his game that he can control. The process is real and being able to spread the ball around effectively to a group of interesting athletes offers a tantalizing outcome, ending in parades and banners.
