It's May and we haven't even had any OTAs yet. Geno's the incumbent. Not surprising they'd say that.

That’s pretty typical. Been in the system longer and boost Geno confidence. That being said, I think Geno is a weak starting candidate and will more than likely lose the job.

We know Geno is not a long term answer. Lock could be.

It reiterated what Pete Carroll said last week about Smith being “automatically” ahead in the competition to replace Wilson.

The Seahawks, though, are banking on Lock being their starter. They have not pursued a veteran quarterback with skins on the wall, like a Baker Mayfield, and they didn’t draft a quarterback.

Seattle appears all in on Lock, with Smith a fallback option.

Team officials repeatedly have praised Lock, and Waldron did again Thursday.

“Drew has a good, calm presence in the huddle out there, (things) we saw in the last three games of his rookie year,” Waldron said. “The thing I like about Drew is, really, his ability to make every throw on the field. The way he moves and he changes his arm angle and doesn’t have to be just a (static) pocket passer out there.”

He should have to win the job. Geno has been here, he knows the system. Lock isn't some top 5 pick.

He should have to, but Geno Smith is what he is. If Lock can’t beat out Smith, then you can expect PC to make a move for Baker

If Waldron is saying Geno has the edge to start, in late August, we could be in deep trouble.

The two games Geno lost could have happened to any mid to lower tier starter. Lock has a rather similar performance.

Geno was bad in his starts. Should try making a trade with the Ravens for Huntley
