Geno Smith on Seattle’s Loss to Bengals: ‘I Didn’t Do My Best Job’



Geno Smith presser

Geno Smith is not about to make any excuses for his poor performance coming off a bye. After throwing two interceptions in Seattle’s loss to Cincinnati on Sunday, Smith told the media to put all the blame on his shoulders.

“Obviously, I didn’t do my best job today,” Smith responded when asked what happened. He then continued. “Overall, I should’ve been better. The defense played a tremendous game. The offensive line played a tremendous game.”

Smith completed only 27 out of his 41 pass attempts in the game. He did throw for 323 yards, but had no touchdowns and tossed two costly interceptions. Seahawks lost to the Bengals 17-13 to fall to 3-2 on the season.

As one of the NFL’s most efficient quarterbacks dating back to last year, this game was certainly uncharacteristic of the type of play Smith has been bringing to the table. Despite the rough day, he did have his team in scoring position with under a minute left in the fourth quarter.

A touchdown and Geno Smith would’ve finished off yet another comeback win. Instead, the Bengals’ defense stepped up and Seattle’s win streak was snapped at three.

The WVU legend and his Seahawks will now head back to the Pacific Northwest and welcome the surging Cardinals next Sunday.
