10 Greatest Seattle Seahawks of All-Time
best-nfl-draft-picks

The Seattle Seahawks joined the NFL in 1976. They enjoyed occasional periods of moderate success over their first 28 years before finally breaking through with a trip to the Super Bowl in 2005, that was regarded by man as the best Seahawks team ever at the time. Two more Super Bowls followed, including a win in 2014. Whether at the top or the bottom of the standings, the Seahawks have always boasted some outstanding individual players. Check out my 2016 season predictions to see if I think this year’s team has anyone with the potential to land on this list.  Here is a list of the top 10 greatest Seattle Seahawks of all time: 1. Walter Jones (OT) In 180 career NFL games – all with the Seahawks – Jones allowed an amazingly low 23 sacks and was called for holding only nine times. His dominance resulted in nine Pro Bowl selections and a spot on the 2000s All-Decade team. He was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility in 2014. He’s also the best draft pick we have ever had. 2. Steve Largent (WR) Largent played 14 NFL seasons, all with the Seahawks. Upon his retirement, he held every major NFL receiving record, including receptions (819), yards(13,089) and touchdowns (100). A seven-time Pro-Bowl selection, he was named to the 1980s All-Decade team. In 1994, Largent – known affectionately as “Mr Seahawk” – was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. 3. […]

5 Best & Worst Seattle Seahawk Draft Picks
best-worst-seahawks-nfl-draft-picks

The Seattle Seahawks have enjoyed several prominent seasons in the NFL. Their players have contributed to several outstanding seasons for the franchise. They have recently won a Super Bowl in 2014 when they beat the Denver Broncos and made other post-season appearances. Several important draft picks would change the future for the Seattle Seahawks. Look back at some of the best and worst draft selections from the franchise. Best Picks #5 – CB Richard Sherman Sherman hailed from Stanford and played well against Pac-10 offenses. He was selected during the 2011 draft, chosen by the Seahawks. Seattle would draft Richard Sherman with their fifth round pick. Since then, he has transformed the secondary of the team. Expect tight coverage against wide receivers whenever Richard Sherman is on the field and he’s a big reason the 2016 Seahawks are a strong playoff contender. Best Picks #4 – RB Shaun Alexander Seattle landed RB Shaun Alexander with the 19th overall pick of the first round in 2000. He proved to be well worth that slot during his first year. Shaun Alexander immediately had an impact for their offense. The RB would score 14 rushing touchdowns during the 2001 NFL season for Seattle. He would also set an NFL record in 2005, scoring 27 rushing touchdowns that season. During his career, he made the Pro-Bowl three times. Best Picks #3 – WR Joey Galloway The team had a high profile choice to make in 1995 in the first round. With the 8th overall pick, […]

Super Bowl 48 Recap
Super Bowl 48 Recap

Super Bowl XLVIII was the championship football game between the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos. In this game, the Seahawks would represent the National Football Conference as its champion while the Denver Broncos would represent the American Football Conference. Both teams were coming off great seasons where they were among the most dominant teams in the league. With this matchup, the Seattle Seahawks were a very strong defensive team while the Broncos were known for their high scoring offense. The two teams were lead by all pro quarterbacks Russell Wilson of the Seahawks and Peyton Manning of the Broncos. Despite this being a very appealing matchup, with the Denver Broncos favored by 2 points, the game was a blowout as the Seattle Seahawks easily won the game by a score of 43-8.  Can they do it again this year?  In my 2016 season preview I think there is a chance. The game was played at Metlife Stadium in the first cold weather city in Super Bowl history. According to weather experts, a snowstorm was expected to hit the area during the game which caused some controversy. However, the snowstorm never occurred and both teams were able to play the game in nearly perfect conditions. This game was broadcast worldwide on the FOX station with Joe Buck and Troy Aikman. In the first quarter, the Seattle Seahawks would establish their dominance of the game with their defense. The Seahawks scored on a fumble recovery in the Broncos endzone which resulted in […]

Seattle Seahawks Predictions for the 2016 Season
2016-seattle-seahawks-predictions

It is that time again. Time to break out the comfy pants and get ready for football. The year promises to be a good year for many teams. With all of the player moves and player retirements, teams would feel the same as they were last year. One such notable team are the Seattle Seahawks. Lead by one of the better Quarterbacks in the league, Russell Wilson, they promises to be another pigskin powerhouse this year. Known for a fierce defense, fans can expect a high level of defensive play. With superstars like Richard Sherman, Kam Chancellor, Earl Thomas, and Cliff Avril, opposing teams should be ready for a hardcore battle. The offense is shaping up to be pretty solid as well. Last year Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kerse, Luke Willson, and Tyler Lockett gave Russell Wilson some dangerous weapons in the passing game. The biggest difference for the Seahawks this year is going to be the loss of Marshawn Lynch. Christine Michael will have some big, powerful shoes to fill this year as he steps into the spotlight where Lynch once stood. Regardless, I feel that it will be another solid year for the Seahawks as they coast into the playoffs. So far, the preseason has given Seattle Seahawk fans a lot to look forward to. And let’s not forget that Seattle’s home field advantage is one of the best in the NFL.  Now, on to predictions. As the season kicks off, the Seahawks fill find themselves pitted against the Miami […]
