Pro Football Focus writer Marcus Mosher is spearheading the mid-season awards, ranging from MVP to Coach of the Year. Mosher breaks down Smith’s selection as Returning Player of the Year, beating New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley.

The only other player who has a real chance of winning this award this season is New York Giantscome back Saquon Barkley, which was incredible throughout week 8. Every other year, he would win the award without a doubt. But how not to be impressed by what Geno Smith and the Seahawks are doing?

_For the first time since 2014, Smith started on the first day of a team. He had started a combined four games since the start of the 2015 season before this year. And what has he done so far in his eight starts? He led the Seahawks to a 5-3 record and a first-place finish in the NFC West. _

Not only are the Seahawks playing well with Smith, but he’s also having a stellar season. He is currently PFF’s No. 2 ranked quarterback in the PFF category (88.4), trailing only Josh Allen (90.5). Additionally, Smith ranks third in wide-range throwing rate (6.3%) and has a career-high 107.2 passer rating.

Smith has been outstanding this year and is playing as one of the best quarterbacks in the league.

In Seattle’s Week 8 game against the Giants, Smith completed 23-34 passes for 212 yards and two touchdowns. Smith is also one of four quarterbacks to attempt more than 300 passes and throw three or fewer interceptions. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll discussed Smith’s moxie leading the Seahawks to another on his former team (2017).
