Loser Papers: 2021 Edition V – WFT Over Seattle

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. Read More

First Look: WFT Vs Seattle – Head-To-Head, Odds, And More

The Washington Football Team will square off against the Seattle Seahawks in the Monday Night Football extravaganza next week. The Seahawks are 3-7, have lost two in a row, and are currently last in the NFC West. The WFT are 2-0 since their bye – beating two upper level teams – and seem to be on a slight mid-season roll.

However, despite a big win over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, and over Tampa Bay the week before, Washington are still home dogs for the Week 12 Prime Time match-up.


The Washington Football Team and the Seattle Seahawks have only faced each other 21 times – 18 regular season, and 3 post-season.

Washington have won 12 of the match-ups, and Seattle have won 9.

Their last game was late in December last season, when Seattle beat Washington 20-15.

Perhaps more notable than the game itself, was that it was after this game that former WFT quarterback Dwayne Haskins was “photographed at his girlfriend’s birthday party with strippers”.

Eight days later Haskins became the only first-round quarterback selection in the last 20 years, to be outright released.

Did The Redskins Turn A Corner With Their Victory over the Seahawks?

Last Sunday, fans were treated to one of the absolute best games of the 2017 NFL season, and one of the grittiest performances that a Washington Redskins team has put in for a long time. The Redskins overcame what seemed an insurmountable amount of injuries at key positions, as well as a late Seahawks touchdown that could have easily sucked the wind out of Washington’s sails, to come away with a hard-fought, all important 17-14 victory over the Seahawks. That type of perseverance is sure to muddle the betting odds for the Redskins games, but could also serve to springboard the Redskins to a solid back half of the season.

Even the most optimistic of the Redskins faithful came into the matchup scratching their heads. How on earth was a team that didn’t even have enough guys to field a full healthy roster, going to compete with a surging 5-2 team, that had really only one key injury?

Old fashioned blood and guts, that’s how.

McCloughan Plucks Picks From Seahawks

The Redskins have traded their 3rd Round draft pick to the Seattle Seahawks. In return for the 69th overall pick, Washington will get the 95th, 112th, 167th and 181st picks.

In my best Foghorn Leghorn voice…

“I say, I say, well that’s a helluva deal Mr. McCloughan.”

Four picks for one? Granted dropping all the way to 95 from 69 in round two stings a bit, but what a haul the Redskins new General Manager just grabbed from Seattle.

With the 69 pick, the Seahawks chose wide receiver Tyler Lockett. Geebus, I guess they really liked the guy.

With a sudden cache of picks, the Redskins may not be done either, they now have the resources to move up throughout the draft.

Hail to the Redskins.

Redskins Bolster Secondary, Add Johnson

The Redskins took another step in re-building their secondary today, and signed former Seattle Seahawks safety Jeron Johnson. He was with the Seahawks from 2011 until 2014, and backed up Pro Bowl strong safety Kam Chancellor.

Johnson tweeted the news early Monday afternoon, and the NFL’s Ian Rapoport confirmed and tweeted out the details of the deal – two years, $4 million.

Johnson only had one start in Seattle, but was a special teams mainstay. He appeared in 46 games, and had 43 tackles, and two forced fumbles. The Redskins don’t have the venerable Chancellor on their roster, or anyone like him, so Washington likely has every intention of giving Johnson a shot at starting. Plus, Scot McCloughan knows what he has in Johnson first hand, from his time in Seattle – he was a senior personnel executive when Johnson made the team as an undrafted free agent.

With last year’s starters gone (Ryan Clark retired and Brandon Meriweather was let go), Johnson isn’t likely the last safety addition that the Redskins will make. Despite his inexperience, he may prove to be the best one.

McCloughan’s fifth free agent decision, is his fifth defensive acquisition. All shrewd. All low key. All young guys. All guys that can help make the Redskins a better ball club.

Hail to the Redskins!

Great Super Bowl

As much as I hated the entire week leading up to the Super Bowl, the game itself was absolutely fantastic. It was… what the Super Bowl is supposed to be. A closely contested battle between what were quite obviously the league’s two best teams.

Let’s face it, the Seahawks blew it. There isn’t a coach / player / team alive that wouldn’t take the scenario that Seattle had. Down by just 4 points – less than a minute to go – but with the ball on the one yard line and with the game’s absolute best power back in your backfield. Marshawn Lynch can gain a yard on nearly any play, he is #BeastMode for a reason. That reason. The guy can run with 8 NFL players on his back. His leg drive is incredible.

So how on earth do you call a pass? Read More

Richard Sherman Parody

It was really sad to see the Seattle Seahawks bow out of the playoffs yesterday, and by sad, I mean poetic. I’m sure I’m not the only Redskin fan in #RedskinsNation who like Trent Williams, wants to smack Richard Sherman in his mealy little mouth; so it was a little bit sweet to watch Roddy White blow past him like he wasn’t even there for a touchdown.
