After a relatively slow start to the season for the Seattle Seahawks, things are finally starting to click for the team, including starting quarterback Geno Smith. The Seahawks have won their past four games and have scored more than 30 points in two of their last three games.
Part of that offensive success is the play of starting quarterback Geno Smith, who leads the entire NFL in completion percentage and ranks in the top 10 in passing yards and touchdowns. While much of his success is due simply to his physical ability, there are other smaller reasons for his improvement.
During his weekly radio show appearance, Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll revealed one big change that’s helped Geno Smith recently: wearing a quarterback wristband.
“If you notice, Geno’s going off the wristband, and that’s a big help,” Carroll said, according to Seattle Sports 710AM. “It’s smoothed things out, sped things up, cleaned things up. And that’s part of it, too. We never did that before. There was resistance to that, so we didn’t do that before.”
Obviously, this is a relatively minor change, but it just goes to show that Smith isn’t just doing the major things right this season, he’s also doing a bunch of small things that add up, as well.
