And then the Lions, with nothing to play for but pride, curb-stomped Green Bay.
I'm not a man to have the optimism of Ted Lasso (or Pete Carroll)....I've been disappointed just a few too many times over the years. But I don't consider myself to be a true cynic, either. And so I was surprised at how, well, stunned I was that the Lions actually won, sending the Seahawks back to the playoffs for the 10th time in the 13 year tenure of Seattle's head coach. Amazing.
On the arm of Geno Smith. Double amazing.
While I'm not one to shy away from admitting when I'm wrong (I'm actually well-practiced in it), my assessment of Smith's quarterbacking ability has not changed all that much. Still: as a pro bowler this year (triple amazing!) I feel I have to assign his Blood Bowl profile some extra skills. It's only fair to upgrade him to 'star player' status when he was one of the stars of the team this season.
Here he is:
#7 Ork Thrower MA 5 ST 3 AG 3 AV 9
Skills: Leader, Pass, Safe Throw, Sure Hands
It's been a good year for Geno, for the team, and for Seattle sports fans. The Russel Wilson era has finished, the Pete Carroll era continues. Looking forward to Saturday's playoff game versus the Niners.
Have a good week everyone. D&D posts to resume shortly.
