Quarterback Jake Browning’s decides to stay, giving Washington Football team significant edge for 2018
Fight or Flight is a basic instinct in the corps of each human being. Flight if surviving the conflict seems unlikely, fight if the chance at escape seems like a longshot. But the decision by the Washington Football team quarterback to remain with the team is both a passionate decision as well as a good business decision.
Injury hurt UW receivers
Many have criticized Jake Browning’s season as “meh”. Following the robust production from the previous year, the expectation was that the team would be even better in 2017, and that Jake Browning would lead the charge. It wasn’t as simple as all that, however.
The team endured some tough injuries to key players in the passing game. Tight ends Drew Sample and Hunter Bryant both fell to injury. Sample missed eight games, while Bryant missed the final five of the season. But perhaps the biggest blow happened at the loss of wide receiver Chico McClatcher after just three games. McClatcher was a perfect compliment to the Huskies offense, as he was a deep threat to Pettis’ possession threat. When McClatcher fell, the team struggled to develop an alternative receiver for the remainder of the season.
