Week 17 MVP’s
The Seattle Seahawks ended their season on Sunday with a heartbreaking 23-10 overtime loss to the Arizona Cardinals – I mean the Arizona Larry Fitzgeralds!
Arizona 23, Seattle 20
When: 4:15 PM ET, Sunday, January 1, 2012
Where: University of Phoenix Stadium, Phoenix, Arizona
Head Official: Gene Steratore
Tarvaris Jackson was average, and Marshawn Lynch looked mortal paving the way for someone else to get their hands on the Offensive Game Ball.
The Defensive Game Ball belongs to a usual suspect – a player that gives Hawks fans hope for next year.
Without further adieu, let’s get on with the final edition of the Seattle Seahawks Week 17 Offensive & Defensive Game Balls for the 2011-2012 season.
Who doesn’t love this guy?
Washington finished with 78 yards rushing with a touchdown on seven carries in the 23-20 defeat, while also hauling in two receptions for 12 yards. Washington also did his part in the return game – 2 kickoff returns – one for 47 yards and one for 37 yards.
Washington’s stamp was all over Sunday’s game – field position, a score and all-around involvement in the game showed why he was such a highly touted weapon when he came to Seattle.
Given the chance, Leon Washington could be in line for the occasional Offensive Game Ball next season as well.
“The Heater” David Hawthorne seemed to be in on every play defensively for the Seahawks in Week 17. He had nine solo tackles, four assists and one sack on the afternoon. Hawthorne is leading by example and was Seattle’s best defensive player by far.
In a game that the Seattle defense didn’t dominate as we have accustomed to, David Hawthorne was his usual rock solid self.
Enjoy the final Defensive Game Ball of the season Mr. Hawthorne – you deserve it!
