  • I'll admit, I became a fan during the '05 run. I was 16 years old and wasn't a football fan until then. My dad was always watching the Hawks games, and told me that Seattle has the best running back in the NFL, and is one of the best teams. That drew my interest, so I sat down and watched the Colts game from right after Tony Dungy's son had died, and I've watched every hawk game (except for the first part of the 2011 season while I was in boot camp) ever since. I registered on this forum during the Jim Mora season, so while I did join during the 05 bandwagon, I never left

  • This really isn't that great of a test at all. One can count the number of truly nationally recognized 'Hawks from previous years on their fingers. All other players, many who were really good ones, are known mostly to the team's fans and no one else.

    In the early years, players not named Largent or Zorn were unheard of outside the Pacific Northwest. Guys like Blades and Skansi and Michael Jackson were unknowns because the team was a relative unknown. Even in 2005, most of the rest of the nation knew Hasselbeck, Alexander, and Jones, and if they worked in law enforcement, maybe Jerramy Stevens. Quick, without checking elsewhere on the Internet, name wide receivers playing for the Browns, Jaguars, or the Bills. Hell, go ahead and name A player from those teams. Hard to do. Outside of Arizona and a very select, well studied group of divisional fans, the Cardinals may as well be known as the Arizona Larry Fitzgeralds.

    We're in some rarefied air here, folks. This current team has probably as many nationally-known names on it as the Seahawks did in every year of our entire history combined. Wilson, Lynch, Sherman, Thomas, without a doubt. Golden Tate for the Green Bay game last year alone. The rest of the Legion of Boom is pretty well known too; in fact, they're probably approaching the notoriety of only a few such defenses, such as the Steel Curtain or the Monsters of the Midway. Hell, Percy Harvin is a fairly well recognized name and he hasn't even seen the field yet. If he comes out and performs to expectations the next few years, he'll be a household name as a Seahawk. And this is on a team renowned for not relying solely on a superstar player at any one position to win games for them. This is the ultimate 53-man team.

    For the record though, my contribution is "Every Single Defensive Player on the 1992 Seattle Seahawks Not Named Cortez Kennedy."

  • What no love for the Boz? How about Koren Robinson, or Jeremy Stevens. Oh wait this about favorites? Then not these guys.

    My favorite player of all time from the old days was Doornink followed Closely by Mudbone, and then Herrera. And Why doesn't Jack Patera ever get any love on here?

  • I'll bite because this thread is rediculous...as am I. I'm not Old, I'm not Wise, but I'm a hawk. I was sitting in my barracks in the late 90's and did an alta vista search of seahawks. I found .net. The articles were great and I wanted to chime in on the forum. I got blasted... I mean torn up. I realized my user ID screamed of young dumb idiot so I changed it to OldWiseHawk.

    I would post daily whenever I could. I was stoked when I went from 14.4 to 28.8 and then a screaming 56k.... Smoking fast. Either way deployments and life kept me away, but my lurking always existed. I lived through the changes and the scout debacle. I'm tickled with where this place is now.

    I pick my kids up at school and see freaking Seahawks gear, not cheeseheads, whiners, cowboys, or steelers.

    Bandwagon tests... I'm just stoked that we have the team we have now. I remember a post Aros did entering the playoffs during our SB run. Goosebumps. How that game tore the fabric of my being. New fans, old fans, future fans.... We have amazing fans.

    My under the radar player from my youth was Michael Pritchard, from our 2000 era was Kenny Lucas (I thought he was our Surtain to our Madison) and my present under the radar player is WT3. Anyhow... Soak it up brethren because we are in the midst of it.

  • Yeah, the idea for the thread is dumb, but someone mentioned '90s defensive players that no one ever talks about but should, and on that note, I'm here to invite you all to the Sam Adams Fan Club.

    He was awesome because he could play multiple positions, and is also the only player qualified to handle dihydrogen monoxide - a very dangerous chemical when used improperly (it is caustic, and causes many deaths every year) but absolutely essential to football success.

    Sarlacc83- Child please. While I have a deep love for the PC era I grew up on Ground Chuck. I have fond memories of Jimmy Teal making one of the best catches I have ever seen in a scab game and Steve Largent blowing up James Harden after he prison raped Brian Blades into the endzone against the Donkeys. I lost my innocence by investing my love and belief in guys like Rick Mirer and Dan McGuire and Mike Holmgren as a GM. I played as Jim Zorn in the neighborhood pick up games and bought the Boz autobiography. I remember watching in horror as my team trotted out the likes of Gale Gilbert, Kelly Stouffer, and Stan Gelbough. I remember Cortez Kennedy switching his number in honor of Jerome Brown. I remember Michael Bates meeting the kick returner at the 5 yard line just as he caught the kick.



    While this is all well and good, it doesn't surprise me you don't get the thrust of my comment which is: So what? Bandwagoners can eventually turn into die-hard fans if arrogant old people don't act high and mighty because they didn't always have it so good.

    Ah ... you beat me to Bobby Joe. He was one heck of a talented kick returner.

    If we're talking about guys who truly flew under the radar -- guys who were good who didn't get the national publicity -- I've got a couple of names to add.

    Bryan Millard -- very underrated Guard on those early 80's team with a real nasty streak. Good player who played for 8 seasons (started 99 games). If we're talking about All Time Lineman for the Hawks ... he'd be right there with Chris Gray.

    Terry Taylor -- a guy that I always felt was a very talented cover CB. He was the Hawks 1st Round choice in 1984 and still ranks up right there among the leaders in Seahawks history in terms of career interceptions.

  • Agree with most none of this is a testament to fandom... but I'll say Reggie Tongue. We also traded for Largent, and then traded away the pick that led to Tony Dorsett. Have actually had a history of pretty good RB's Warner-Warren-Watters-Alexander-Lynch. I was born in '86 became a fan in '92. I guess i'm a bandwagoner...

    When I was in HS they actually encouraged us to put dihydrogen monoxide and sometimes hydrogen hydroxide in our bodies. They had bins of sodium chloride (in red pill form) for us to take if we dared. I took all three at different times, but am still alive.
