Geno Smith’s 2022 season has earned him awards and a new contract, but now he can add more resect from his NFL peers.

Smith, the NFL’s reigning Comeback Player of the Year, earned a spot on the league’s list of its top 100 players. This prestigious group, which is voted on by the players themselves, has Smith at number 77.

This comes a week after Smith received a rating of 81 in the video game Madden, placing him just outside the 10 best quarterbacks in the game.

Geno Smith Rated Just Outside Top 10 Quarterbacks in Madden

The WVU legend is coming off a season in which he threw for 4,282 yards with 30 touchdowns and only 11 interceptions. He completed a league-leading 69.8% of his passes, posted an 100.9 rating overall and also ran for 366 yards and scored a touchdown on the ground. Smith’s individual success allowed the Seahawks to reach the postseason as a Wild Card.

At one point, Smith’s season reached historic levels in terms of efficiency, tying an NFL record for the most consecutive games completing at least 60% of his passes and doing it with an 80 or better rating. The only other quarterbacks to ever be that consistent efficient for as many games in a row in one season are Peyton Manning and Aaron Rodgers.

While in Las Vegas at the Pro Bowl, Smith put his season into perspective during a chat with our Mike Asti.
