The Seattle Seahawks absolutely dominated the then first-place Arizona Cardinals 35-6 on Sunday Night Football. They put up nearly 600 total yards of offense in a game that will likely give the defending champs home-field advantage throughout the NFC Playoffs.
One aspect of Seattle’s game did struggle in the dominating performance. Kicker Steven Hauschka, who entered the game as the second-most accurate field goal kicker in NFL history, missed on all three of his field goal attempts.
And before Seattle pulled away with three fourth quarter touchdowns, these missed field goals kept Arizona in the game. They also prompted Seahawks fans to take to Twitter to air their frustrations.
Steven Hauschka sucks

It’s unclear whether these tweet are what punter Jon Ryan was responding to, but his support of the team’s kicker was rather hilarious.
If anyone out there wants to talk crap about our kicker who is one of the best in the game u can meet me at the swing set at recess to fight

The visuals here are real. Just imagine Ryan showing up at a playground in fully Seahawks gear ready to take on those who have criticized his kicker.
This has a comedy skit written all over it.
