    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.


    You're either brave or insane!! Have you seen what sodium chloride does to a banana slug? Yikes!

    In any case, ol' Bobby Boucher was a master with the hydrogen hydroxide. And a damn fine football player too.

  • Sure, I'll play, not that it proves anything but it's fun to see names I hadn't thought about in a while. I always thought Greg Gaines was awesome. Sean Dawkins was a stud, in '99 anyway. Corey Harris.

    Help me out - I remember there were two WRs named Thomas in the mid 90s. One was an early-round bust IIRC, the other was a tenacious smaller dude. Robb was one of them? I could look this up but am curious if people remember those cats.

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

  • Wasn't Glenn Foley our QB for the playoff game at Miami which was the first playoff game that I honestly remembered as a fan? I started somewhat watching sports as a six-year-old, but I started really closely paying attention in about '90 or '91 as an eight-year-old kid.

    A few more:

    Eric Lane (he could do it all)
    David Hughes
    Alonzo Mitz
    Philip Daniels
    Ruben Rodriguez
    Kelvin Martin "K-Mart" from the Cowboys
    And did no one mention Rick "Rootin" Tuten yet?

    Bill the Beerman!

    Koren was also in that cast of characters - the Three Amigos - always enjoyed them doing the "sprinkler" dance after a TD. D-Jack was good for "the Squirrel" also.

    EDIT: they were the Three Stooges right? Three Amigos was Elway's "-sons"

    Close - Foley was the backup that year and Kitna was the starter. Kitna probably *wished* Foley was in there after Trace Armstrong sacked him 55 times that game.

    For some reason, I remembered it as Kitna having left town the year before.

    Geez, I think I just blacked out most of the '90s. I remember that playoff game against Miami (and the Jags straight up destroying the Dolphins the next week in Dan Marino's final game) and getting excited when Chris Warren, Joey Galloway, and our front four would drag us to 7-9.

  • Most of these named already, but some of my favorite players growing up:

    Bobby Joe Edmonds, I'm not sure he ever had a single play from scrimmage, but he was electric as a PR
    Brian Blades, 2nd best Hawks WR ever
    Derrick Fenner - had the one monster year where he had 15 or so TD's
    Chris Warren - had the one monster year where he went for 1600 yards
    John L Williams - I really like Mack Strong, but John L was far and away the best FB ever to play for this franchise

    I enjoyed Rice's time with us just marginally more than Behrings, JSea. Rice, much like Sark, swept through town doing little more than disrupting our culture.

    There was a time I had great respect for Jerry Rice, But since the un-retirement of Largent's #80, he is one of my least favorite players, or men, of all time. Classless and an A-hole.

    The team also has to be chastised for that inconsiderate act. They never should have left the decision to Largent. That put Steve in a very bad way and as a man, he could only agree to Rice's *%#ed up request. That Seahawk org didn't treat another of our all time greats, Kenny Easley, very well, either.

    Sooooooo happy with our ownership / FO today. You know they wouldn't have stood for such crap. Sorry you brought Rice's name into this? ; )

    What irked me about the Hamlin deal is after we cut ties, he played some pretty damn good ball with the Cowboys. He gets clubbed, misses an important stretch of games, ultimately gets released, then kicks ass for the enemy. For those unfamiliar with "the Hammer", he was n absolute stud when at his best. A cross between Kam and Earl wouldn't be a bad description.

  • I've always had a special place in my heart for players with potential who happened to be deadbeats. My first love was Derrick Fenner, then it was Chris Warren, then Anthony Simmons, and last but not least, Jerramy Stevens. Of the bunch, only Warren reached his peak ability, while simultaneously being the least deadbeat of the group. Which probably isn't a coincidence.

    Also, I might have been the only one in his fanclub, but I thought having Jerry Rice on the 2004 Seahawks was bad ass. I could care less about the jersey number thing.
