Yes, he beat Russell Wilson, but let's be realistic here. Wilson was in his 5th or 6th start, and was not playing like he has been playing since the later part of last season.
Kaep needs to play his game and not let the pass rush phase him. He needs to protect the football and make plays where there are opportunities.
It really is irrelevant to compare Smith's games against Seattle.
versus seattles D it is IMO. i'm not talking about wilson vs our D, just that seattles D will give kaep some check downs, alex took them quite often and kaep has to be willing to do the same.
Seattle's defense in 2011 isn't even the same. Sure there are some of the same players but at that point they were completely inexperienced.
In 2012 they came around and held this offense to 13 points. Our defense won that game by golfing their offense to 6 points. Since then that offense can score without relying on the D.
I still don't think it is a relevant comparison.
Yeah he needs to take what is given underneath but that's all that needs to be said in the article. Instead the article calls for a direct comparison to Smith in order to fuel this debate.
