They lost three games this year because of missed field goals: vs Washington. Lost 17-14. Walsh missed three FG attempts vs Atlanta. Lost 34-31. Walsh missed game tieing FG with two seconds left on the clock. vs Arizona. Missed game winning FG with 30 seconds left Some facts about Blair Walsh and Steven Hauschka: Walsh hit 21-29 FGs this year. Steven Hauschka, they guy they cut because they didn't want to pay him or thought he was aging (whatever), hit 29-33 for Buffalo. Walsh made $800,000 this year. Hauschka made $1,600,000. So, a team owned by Paul Allen, one of the 50 richest men in the entire world, missed out on three probable wins this year because they wouldn't pay Hauschka the $800,000 difference that Buffalo offered him. I'll be fair. Hauschka probably wouldn't have pulled out all three of those games. But I think we can all agree that he would have sealed two of those games. That would have made us 11-5. Ever since they started laying the defense and Wilson the big bucks, the talent balance on this team has gotten steadily worse. Obviously we can't part with Wilson. So the only way to recover from the talent imbalance is to cut some of the high priced defenders. I still believe in Wagner, Thomas, Sherman (maybe, depending on how well he comes back from injury) and Clark. Guys that we should consider letting go: Bennett, Chancellor, Avril and maybe Richardson. Aside from the defense, I'd also cut Graham.
