Former Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Shane Waldron helped revitalize the career of Geno Smith. Smith was 14th in QBR in 2023 and 7th in 2022 respectively. The Seahawks finished with the 12th best offense according to DVOA rankings in 2022 and the 13th in DVOA in 2023.
The boost to the Seahawks offensive performance is evident given the long career struggles of Geno Smith prior to his arrival in Seattle. It could be argued that Waldron was behind that rebound to his career.
Prior to coaching in Seattle Waldron was the QB coach and passing game coordinator with the Los Angeles Rams under Sean McVay. Waldron is yet another successful coach from the Sean McVay coaching tree who has developed into an up-and-coming coach that has produced by improving the production of an offense that rebuilt their offensive line and added a new QB.
Now the obvious question that remains to be answered, is Waldron here to turn around the fortunes of Justin Fields, or to build and develop a new future of the franchise in either Caleb Williams or Drake Maye?
