Loser Papers: 2021 Edition V – WFT Over Seattle

By Mark Solway | December 1st, 2021

The Washington Football Team won their third straight game to move to 5-6, and into the NFC Wild Card picture. Washington’s narrow 17-15 victory over the Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night came right down to the wire.

Seattle had the opportunity to tie the game in the waning moments, but Kendall Fuller intercepted the two-point conversion that could have evened the score.

Washington’s cause was further aided by a penalty on the following kickoff, that negated a successful Seattle onside kick.

Ultimately, Washington were the better team on the night. They dominated the time of possession by over 23 minutes!!

Still, perhaps the way the game ended was the inspiration for the dire nature of these gems.

Completely Dominated

From the Seattle Times:

Sadly, much of Monday night’s 17-15 loss to the WFT was all too familiar — an inept offense, a defense that played its heart out but was just pliable enough to let a not-great offense move enough to win it.

While the last drive made it dramatic, it shouldn’t be lost that until then the Seahawks had been completely dominated.

And…

But for most of the game’s 60 minutes, this was just a ill-designed team playing poorly.

Picking Up The Pieces

From Clutch Points:

Their only hopes hinged on getting to 4-7 and then going on a huge run after that. Well, that did not happen on Monday Night Football‘s Seahawks-WFT matchup and now star quarterback Russell Wilson and head coach are left picking up the pieces of a team that is heading towards a crossroads. One path sees these two give it one more shot as a duo and the other most likely sees Carroll replaced or Wilson traded.
