Offseason quiz: How bad was Blair Walsh in 2017

New, comments
NFL: Arizona Cardinals at Seattle Seahawks Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

Fans of the Seattle Seahawks can’t stand the name Blair Walsh and want him to have nothing to do with the franchise going forward after his performance on the field in 2017. He missed kicks. He potentially cost the Seahawks multiple games. And he will not be fondly remembered by fans in the future.

I had a lot of fun seeing the results of the running game polls earlier this offseason, and Monday’s poll regarding Paul Richardson’s injury history is shaping up to be another good one. However, to avoid kicking Walsh too hard while he’s down, I’ll go ahead and jump right into the questions.

As always, once the results are in I will put together a post that looks at the results and works to educate fans on any areas where misconceptions were held.

In any case, check back on Thursday or Friday, as that’s when the follow up poll should be posted.
