After a magical year in which he grabbed the starting quarterback reins and led the team to a playoff appearance and Comeback Player and Pro Bowler Seahawks quarterback, Geno Smith’s magical carpet ride continued this weekend.
Smith was the starting quarterback for the NFC in the NFL’s inaugural Pro Bowl Flag Football. A day after revealing that contract talks between, he and the Seahawks were heading in a positive direction Smith lit Allegiant Stadium on fire with his passing performance. Smith led all the Pro Bowl quarterbacks with five touchdowns and 239 passing yards. With TD passes of 31, 23, 54 and the game-winning 32-yard connection to the Cowboys CeeDee Lamb Smith showed that no stage is too big for him.
The game was divided into two Flag Football halves and the NFC was able to pull off the victory due to the NFC’s Smith-led first half. In between the two football halves, the crowd was treated to various skills competitions between the two conferences. The final score counting the flag football games and skills competition was NFC 35 AFC 33
With Sunday’s big game left and the start of the NFL’s new fiscal year set to start in March things will be pretty quiet regarding the Smith and the Seahawks contract negotiations until a deal is a streak. With both side bargaining in good faith and not through the media it is a sign that no news is good news for Seahawks Nation.
