Cut Blair Walsh from the Seattle Seahawks before the 2018 Season

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

Blair Walsh, kicker for the 2017 Seattle Seahawks, was unable to perform to the expecatations of an NFL kicker. Over the course of the 2017 season, he either directly or indirectly lost us 4 total games, causing the Seahawks to miss the playoffs for the first time since the 2011 Season.

In the Week 9 in Seattle’s loss to the Washington Redskins, he missed all 3 of his attempted field goals. The final score was 14-17, meaning that if Walsh had made a single one of those field goals, he would've tied the game for Seattle. If the game had been tied, they would've had a far greater chance at victory with the ability to play in overtime. In Week 11 in Seattle’s game against the Falcons, Walsh missed another field goal at the end of the 4th quarter that could've tied the game. This field goal would’ve given Seattle a chance to win the game in an extra quarter of play. In Week 14 during the Hawks battle with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Blair Walsh missed a field goal in the first half that forced the Seahawks into an undesirable situation at the end of the game. The score was 24-30 in the 4th quarter with 2:39 left so they needed to score a touchdown to win the game rather than just trying to score a field goal in the event that Walsh had been successful earlier in the game. This situation required the offense to call plays focused on going down the whole field quickly, which are more difficult to execute than plays focused on getting into field goal range. Finally, to conclude the 2017 season, the Seahawks needed to win against the Cardinals in Week 17 and they needed the Falcons to lose to Carolina to become the 6th seed in the playoffs. The Seahawks were not showing the score of the Falcons game inside the stadium, so the Seahawks players did not know if their win would mean anything. The score was 24-26 with 39 seconds left and Blair Walsh attempted a field goal to win the game. He missed, and that kick could have the one that Seattle needed to get into the playoffs if the Falcons had lost. Not to mention, if Blair Walsh hadn't lost the Seahawks games earlier in the season, they wouldn’t have even needed to win this game.  

I believe that the Seattle Seahawks must cut Blair Walsh. In addition to the facts that I have presented, Blair Walsh did not make a single field goal of 50 yards or greater. Only 1 other NFL team did not make a field goal of 50 yards or greater. That is unacceptable. This was an abysmal season for Walsh, and he cannot return to the Seahawks next year as their starting kicker. Thank you for your time and please help us to convince the Seahawks to remove Blair Walsh from their roster.
