  • kearly wrote: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.


    Rice didn't do much for us on or off the field. He was merely serving his ego while with our Hawks and conducted himself like he'd rather be somewhere else.

    The salt in the wound regarding the jersey # was the fact that it was Rice that broke Largent's TD record, then came to Largent's house and had his number brought down from the rafters so he could catch a couple more TDs in it. And only a couple, IIRC.

  • Snap! Some already posted but the 1st original #51 Anthony Simmons. One of my fav players from that era of teams.

    Don't forget Levon Kirkland and Chad Eaton. Oh yeah, the lunchbox Craig Terrill. I have no idea how Craig make the cut year after year. He had the worst non-athletic shaped body I've ever seen. I remember a pic with him and all the other rooks that year after a rookie mini camp and thinkin', "Who the hell is that white boy in the pic? He can't possibly be one of our rookie draft picks! He has no biceps!" I seriously thought he was a Hawk assistant/water boy.

    ML is only behind John L. on my fav Hawk RB list.
    Fenner was damn good too.
    We need Bruce Irvin to become Rufus Porter.
    Our DBs have grown a foot since Nesby, lol.

  • Phillip Daniels is definitely a good one ... and since no one else has mentioned it (that I've seen) thus far, I'll go to his companion on the other side and go with Michael McCrary. Outside of this current unit, that front 4 (for a couple of years) was arguably the best defensive line in Seahawks history -- and virtually no one else who's not a Seahawks fan either knows or remembers.

    While I'm thinking of those 90's teams, I'll throw out the name of Michael Bates. For those who don't know, Bates was a WR with Olympic Speed who made the Pro Bowl as a special teams standout. He was a fantastic gunner.

    And since someone already threw out the name of Bill the Beerman ... why don't we go ahead and raise you some Mama Blue. Man, with all the Seahawks football she's seen (a LOT of it fairly bad) this has really got to be fun for her. The Everett Herald actually put out a nice article on her recently ...

    http://www.heraldnet.com/article/20131013/NEWS01/710139917

    Somehow, it just wouldn't be right if she passes away before ever getting to see the Seahawks win the Super Bowl. Let's rectify that this year.

    Technically, I think the front four was much better with Sinclair than Daniels.

    'much' better was certainly a stretch, still that is the foursome that leaps out, to me.

  • Had three good ones, but got beat out late: Norm Johnson, Nate Odomes and Nesby Glasgow.

    Do coaches count? What about good ole Rusty Tillman? He doesn't count for "not nationally known" because it seems like every time the Hawks were on TV then, the cameras would find Rusty and everyone would gush about what a great special teams coach he was.

    Edit to add: Tommy Kane? Don't remember seeing his name in the past posts. In my head, I only hear his name in Charlie Jones' voice. Who remembers him, from back in the days when the AFC was always on NBC?

    John L is one of the best Seahawks of all time... truly.

    I like the idea of this thread (having grown up in the 80s) but dont like the title... reliving some of the older Seahawks for younger fans is great, but not defining.

    with that, my favorite all timers (pre-2006):

    John L
    Paul Skansi
    Mike Tice (not really, but hey, he played for us)
    Jacob Greene/Joe Nash
    Paul Brown
    Curt Warner
    Joe J
    Brian Blades
    Kenny Easley
    Largent (obviously)
    Joey Galloway
    Hasselbeck


    Also, found this... thought it fitting for this thread

  • I remember watching a Monday night game and I believe the Hawks were 2-14 that year, or close.

    But the defense was unreal. They kept the offense in the game late and were playing so well that the announcers were talking about how the defense should be playing offense too. They weren't mocking them. Those guys were incredible.

    It is all a mismash because I was young but I remember watching guys like Sinclair, Rufus Porter, Tez and it always seemed we had a solid CB crew.

    I had a RAT patrol T-shirt because Rusty Tillman was a god to me back then.

    I don't think it matters if you can remember guys like Patrick Hunter, it just means you are old. But I would put some of those players like Blades and Hunter up against anyone. And John L Williams is still one of my favorite players ever, it was neck and neck between him and Eugene Robinson but Robinson lost a little luster with his preSB error when he was on the Falcons. As a Hawk, though, he was a combination hero and saint.
    (When picking favorite players it never seemed fair to pick Largent, that seemed obvious)

    I know a lot of those pre-2000 teams never got that far but some of those players were fun to watch. The Seahawks have been a part of Sunday since as long as I can remember.
