The Seattle Seahawks expansion franchise was granted in 1974, but a tragedy occurred during the first season in 1976. Lloyd W. Nordstrom, the team’s owner died of a heart attack in Mexico vacationing. He did not get to see the team play any games, however he was instrumental in hiring the front office staff. Head Coach Jack Patera took the reign and the Seahawks played to a sold out audience at the Kingdome on September 12, 1976. They lost this to the St. Louis Cardinals and went on to lose five more games before winning over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Tampa 13-10 on October 17th. The Seahawks ended their first year with a record of 2-12. The Seahawks shifted from the NFC West to the AFC West in 1977.
Continuous loses occurred in this season, ending with a record of 5-9. A 1978 season record of 9-7 was their first winning period. They duplicated this same record in 1979, as well as made their first Monday Night Football television appearance. Despite a successful start in 1980, the Seahawks had a dismal season finish with a record of 4-12. Difficult years continued, Coach Patera was terminated, and Interim Coach Mike McCormack stepped in and finished the 1982 season with a 4-5 record. 1983 showed signs of change, with the Seahawks capturing the divisional playoff win over the Miami Dolphins 27-20. Losing the AFC Championship Game to the Los Angeles Raiders 30-14 dampened the divisional success. This season ended with a 9-7 record. More up and down play continues from 1984 through 1986, ending the last season with a 10-6 record, but missing the playoff with a tiebreaker lost. Players are injured, Steve Largent sets a career records in receiving yards, and the Seahawks go on to win their first AFC West title with a record of 9-7.
He shared time with Charlie Whitehurst, however he was far from effective also. This offseason, the Seahawks hope they found a more permanent solution at the quarterback position when they signed former Minnesota Vikings signal caller Tavaris Jackson. Head coach Pete Carroll stated that the team signed Jackson with every expectation that he will be their starting quarterback come week 1. The signing of Jackson allowed the Seahawks to let Hasselbeck walk to the Tennessee Titans, to serve as a mentor to rookie Jake Locker. This was another team who went with a running back by committee approach, as they lacked a clear cut every down back. The two leading rushers were Marshawn Lynch and Justin Forsett, who combined for over 1,000 yards and 8 touchdowns. At wide receiver, the Seahawks had 8 players who caught 20 or more balls. Mike Williams, the former Detroit Lions and USC All-American, resurrected his career last season by catching 65 passes for 751 yards and 2 touchdowns. Rookie Deon Butler led the team with 4 touchdown receptions to go alon with 36 receptions. The defense is young, but improving. The Seahawks defied the odds and won the division to land a spot in the playoffs just a season ago. Will this be the year they take the next step?
They did however lose to the Cincinnati Bengals in the Divisional Playoff 21-13. Seasons 1989 through 1997 resulted in more dismal play without winning records. Wide receiver Largent suffers an arm injury and retires with a team ring of honor, as well as career records in touchdowns, yards, and catches. During this time the Seahawks hire quarterback Dan McGwire, baseball all-star Mark McGwire’s brother, accept the resignation of Coach Chuck Knox, and hire Tom Flores as head coach. McGwire was replaced by Notre Dame graduate Rick Mirer. A concrete block fell on the Kingdome, so the Seahawks are forced to play their first three games of the 1994 season at the Husky Stadium on the University of Washington campus. Coach Flores steps down to go back to his General Manager duties and Dennis Erickson from the University of Miami takes his place. Mirer is released from his contract in 1996. Quarterback Warren Moon is drafted in 1997 and goes on to have a stellar season of twenty five touchdowns, as well as almost four thousand passing yards. Moon’s success was not enough to save the season record of 8-8. Paul Allen, Microsoft co-founder purchases the team for one hundred ninety four million dollars in 1997 and launches a campaign to build a stadium and exhibition center, as well as General Manager Flores resigns.
Season 1999 delivers another record of 8-8, Coach Erickson is fired, Mike Holmgren, former Green Bay Packers coach is hired as General Manager and head coach, and the Kingdome is demolished to construct a new stadium. The Seahawks play two seasons on the University of Washington campus. More mediocre football continues and the 2001 season ends with a 9-7 record and no playoff opportunity. Seahawks Stadium opens in 2002 with a loss of 24-13 to the Arizona Cardinals and a season football record of 7-9. Two thousand three continues with season loses. Wide Receiver Jerry Rice is signed from the Oakland Raiders and the Seahawks secure the NFC West title with a record of 9-7. Playoffs ended with another frustrating lost to the St. Louis Rams of 27-20.
The stadium is later named Qwest Field in 2004. Seattle Seahawks tickets range from sixty two dollars to thirty two hundred dollars for regular season, with stadium suites ranging from fifty thousand to one fifty thousand dollars. Season 2005 begins with Coach Holmgren being stripped of his General Manager duties as the Seahawks had not won a playoff game in over twenty years. Successes and failures continued with a 13-3 season record and a playoff in site against the Washington Redskins. The Seattle Seahawks won the game with a 20-10 victory, ending a twenty one year famine without a playoff win. This win earned the team entry into the NFC Championship Game against the Carolina Panthers. Seattle won 34-14 capturing a trip to Super Bowl XL to play the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Pittsburgh Steelers won with a 21-10 victory and questionable referee calls.
Seattle Seahawks tickets were once again selling with zeal and the Seahawks kicked off the 2006 season winning three games. Season 2007 has a record of 10-6 with the Seahawks facing the Washington Redskins. The Seahawks won with a win of 35-14, but could not make anything else happen this season. Two thousand eight began with the retirement of Coach Holmgren and ended on another disappointing season record of 4-12. Jim Mora took the helm as head coach in the 2009 season concluding with a 5-11 record, as well as a job lost. USC Coach Pete Carroll is hired by the Seahawks with hopes of success. The Seahawks captured the NFC West title with a record of 7-9. Defined as the worst playoff team in National Football League history, the Seahawks faced the New Orleans Saints, the defending champions. The Seahawks sealed the win of 41-36 with early aggressive play and field goals. The Seahawks advanced to the Divisional Playoffs against the Chicago Bears. The game resulted in a 35-24 win for Chicago. Coach Carroll continues as head coach desperately trying to attain a first Super Bowl win. The Seahawks currently have one NFC Championship (2010), two AFC Western Division Championships (1988 and 1999), as well as four NFC West Division Championships (2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2010). Qwest Field is renamed CenturyLink Field in June, 2011. With a sixty seven thousand seat capacity, as well five thousand seats for special events, and one thousand four hundred disability seats, fans can enjoy comfortable seats forty to fifty two feet from the action with Seattle Seahawks tickets purchased.
The 2012 season looks positive, as Offensive lineman James Carpenter, a first round pick from Alabama, continues his second year of solid team play. He plays guard and tackle, as well as provides the spark the Seahawks need on the field. The team health challenges remain, as well as the need to improve the pass rush record. Quarterback Tarvaris Jackson has been signed to start, as well as Zach Miller at the tight end position. The Seahawks are seen as one of the Super Bowl favorites and questions remain about their ability to meet season expectations due to maturity and injuries. Forbes magazine calculates the team value at over one million dollars. Paul Allen, team owner, also owns a multi-million World War II airplane collection, as well as the CenturyLink Field stadium.
