The Seahawks were supposed to come in and dominate the Rams today – and they played like that’s just what they were expecting to do. As a result, the home team got put on their rear end in the second half of Sunday’s embarrassing home loss to LA.
After it was over, starting quarterback Geno Smith admitted that it looked like the Rams simply wanted it more.
Accountability and blunt answers were the themes of Geno Smith’s postgame presser.
“Put that on me.”
“It sucks. It really does.”
“We don’t lose at home. We can’t do that, let alone in this fashion.”
He also said the Rams wanted it more and played harder than Seattle did. pic.twitter.com/pg6EaIx1BC

If Smith is right, then this loss is the best thing that could possibly have happened to the Seahawks. While it does put them in jeopardy of the dreaded 0-2 start heading into a tough game against the Lions, the lesson that they can’t take any team lightly is more valuable. We know this is a very talented and young team – if they take that message to heart then they’ll be better for it.
As for Smith’s performance, there wasn’t much he could do after both left tackle Charles Cross and right tackle Abe Lucas left the game with their respective injuries. He’s doing the right thing by taking the blame, but if any one person on this side is most responsible it’s offensive coordinator Shane Waldron, who called an atrocious game.
