For anyone who still needs to be made aware just how great of a season Geno Smith is having leading the Seahawks, former NFL quarterback turned ESPN analyst Dan Orlovsky has you covered.
Orlovsky detailed Smith’s brilliance this year by breaking down some recent plays during ESPN’s NFL Live show. The media member then tweeted a video of this segment on his personal Twitter account on Wednesday and made reference to his colleague Mina Kimes being a Seattle fan.

Kimes then offered a “GENO MACHINO” reply to the tweet.

Part of Orlovsky’s point was to emphasize the West Virginia football legend’s accuracy and ability to find the second and third read if necessary. So far this season, Smith has thrown for 1,712 yards with 11 touchdowns and only 3 interceptions. He has done this while completing a league-leading 73.5% of his passes and keeping a 66.8 QBR.
The Seahawks are 4-3 record wise after back-to-back wins over the NFC West opponents in the Cardinals and Chargers. A matchup with the New York Giants back home in Seattle awaits Smith and his team, which now also includes fellow former Mountaineer Bruce Irvin, embarking on his third tenure for the franchise.
Smith remains one of the most prolific players in WVU history as the all-time passing yards and passing touchdowns leader with 11,662 yards and 98 touchdowns. He played from 2009-12 before being a second round selection by the New York Jets in the 2013 NFL Draft.
