Drew Lock’s heartfelt post-game interview wins over NFL fans following Seahawks’ MNF win vs Eagles

The Seattle Seahawks are one of those unlucky teams to struggle on the field due to their starting quarterback’s injury issues. However, in a season where QB1s like Joe Burrow, Deshaun Watson, and Daniel Jones went down with season-ending injuries, the Seahawks were lucky not to lose their starter, Jeno Smith, with such a huge blow.

With a 7-7 record, the Seahawks are in crucial competition with the Los Angeles Rams to secure a playoff run. Meanwhile, Drew Lock helped them on the run by taking over from Smith and leading the team to a win. Besides his on-field excellence, the signal-caller also came to the limelight for pouring some heartfelt words following the much-needed win over the Philadelphia Eagles.

Drew Lock’s heartfelt post-game interview wins over NFL fans

Drew Lock showcased nerves of steel in only his second start of the season. He paved the way for a breathtaking comeback by engineering a remarkable 92-yard scoring drive in the final moments of the game to lead the Seahawks to an improbable victory against the Philadelphia Eagles.

However, it was not just his performance that captured hearts; it was the raw emotion the QB exuded during his interview with ESPN’s Lisa Salters that truly connected him with the NFL community. Expressing gratitude, the young star’s heartfelt words reverberated far beyond the field.

“It’s been a long time, I’m just blessed… It’s awesome,” Lock shared while his voice was tinged with a mix of relief, gratitude, and joy.

The signal-caller also shed light on his reflection on the game-winning play call leading up to the touchdown pass that ensured the 10-play, 97-yard series. With an air of reverence, he boldly declared, “I’ll remember that play call for the rest of my life.”

The veteran immediately became the talk of the town as his heart-pumping post-game interview resonated deeply with fans across America. Many fans took to social media to showcase their profound love for him.

A netizen wrote,”WE LOVE YOU DREW.”

Meanwhile, some users also lauded the QB’s personality and said his way of opening up about himself was “way more classy” than many other signal-callers in the league.

A user wrote,”Way more classy then a lot of QBs.”

Some fans even drew a comparison between the Seahawks QB and the Eagles MVP-leader Jalen Hurts, saying the former one outplayed the latter with his remarkable performance on the field.

A person wrote,”he outplayed ‘MVP’ jalen hurts.”

The loss marks back-to-back three defeats for Philly. Along with the injury concern of Hurts, the team is also in the fear of losing their NFC leading spot. Meanwhile, Drew Lock pushed the Seahawks to the playoff contention by leading the fourth game-winning drive of his career.

Why did Drew Lock play over Geno Smith?

The Seattle Seahawks found themselves in an unexpected quarterback conundrum ahead of “Monday Night Football.” As Adam Schefter revealed, initial plans pointed to Lock taking the reins for the game. However, a twist emerged when the injured Jeno Smith was unexpectedly listed as active, forcing Coach Pete Carroll into a pivotal decision: who could steer the team toward snapping their four-game losing streak and potentially upsetting their opponents?

Smith’s setback stemmed from a groin injury sustained in practice preceding last week’s San Francisco clash, which marked his first absence since stepping in as the starter following Russell Wilson’s departure. General manager John Schneider said the QB’s pregame mobility surprised the team’s decision-makers, but a subsequent aggravation of the injury during practice resulted in his questionable status for the high-stakes Monday night fixture.

The revelation came just moments before kickoff, and ultimately Lock was the chosen starter over Smith. This marks Lock’s second consecutive start after his debut in Week 14 against the San Francisco 49ers. However, Carroll was resolute in affirming Smith’s continued role as the starting quarterback once he regains full health

“Geno’s our starter,” Carroll said via Seattle Times, ensuring clarity amid the swirling speculation surrounding the quarterback situation, especially following Drew Lock’s incredible performance against the Philadelphia Eagles.
