SEATTLE -- Coach Pete Carroll said <a href=""></a> the Seattle Seahawks will not bring in another kicker this week after Blair Walsh missed all three of his field goal attempts in Sunday's 17-14 loss to the Washington Redskins.
Carroll quickly dismissed that possibility on his 710 ESPN Seattle radio show Monday.
"No, we will not," Carroll said before noting that Walsh had made all but one of his attempts this season before Sunday. "He's 12-for-13 going into the game, guys. That was a hard day for whatever reason. We didn't kick the ball off very well, either. It was just a hard day to kick the ball for us."
Walsh has been reviving a career that got off track during his final two seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, who released him last November. The Seahawks signed him to a one-year deal over the offseason before letting longtime kicker Steven Hauschka leave in free agency.
Walsh missed wide left on his three first-half attempts Sunday, from 44, 39 and 49 yards out.
Carroll said Walsh was having trouble during pregame warm-ups while kicking in swirling wind at CenturyLink Field. Walsh didn't blame the wet conditions when asked if that was a factor, saying, "Those kicks were all me."
Carroll reiterated on 710 ESPN Seattle that the Seahawks would have sent Walsh out to attempt the game-winner had they gotten in field <a href=""></a> goal range on their final possession. The Seahawks got as far as Washington's 38-yard line but took a sack on the next play that forced them to try a Hail Mary from the 46, which fell incomplete in the end zone to end the game.
