The Fourth Down Fumble

by: Michael Steffes

For those of you playing along at home, the Seahawks will be on tomorrow as part of the NFLN's replay series. The Hawks will be on at 10am and 5:30pm PST.

The game is the Seahawks v Rams from week 12 of last year. This game will for ever be remembered for Gus Ferotte fumbling on the 1 yard line, on a fourth down with time expiring. However, just pointing that out would be unfair to Will Witherspoon, who has a monster game for the Rams, almost single handedly stymieing the Hawks first half offense. But... A big return from Josh Wilson, and a second half surge allow the Hawks to take the lead and hold on by the skin of their teeth for victory.

Also featured, if I remember right... A crushing blow from Leroy Hill which knocks Marc Bulger out of the game. The Hawks seemed to have a knack for knocking QB's and RB's out of the game, and this was a pretty, pretty play. Pat Kerney also had a monster game with 3 sacks, a fumble recovery, and an interception on the play in which Bulger exits.
