    This is a great one. I remember him in his rookie year, in a preseason game. Largent was part of the broadcast and immediately loved Mack.

    He said "I really like this Mack Strong kid. With a name like Strong he deserves to make the team"

    Mack made it through Flores, Erickson and Holmgren. Never got cut.

  • This guy fits the bill, Bobby Joe Edmunds. He was a great returner. I always had a soft spot in my heart for Eric Lane, though he was only a back up.

  • Ok, i'm going to show my loyalty and didn't read all the submits to find out if this was noted. Mine "would have been" Tony Dorsett, had the Hawks not traded their first pick second overall in the 1977 draft and end up taking Steve August.

    In the weeks prior to the 1977 draft, Tony Dorsett’s agent let the Seattle Seahawks know that Dorsett had no interest in playing in Seattle. Seattle began to shop is number two overall pick around, and the team that became the principal focus of the trade was the Dallas Cowboys. According to a Sports Illustrated article: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers held the number one overall pick and took Ricky Bell. With the number two pick, Dallas got Dorsett. Seattle picked up nobody of significance with four Cowboys picks obtained for the number two pick overall.

    Right on. The title of this thread is brutal, and unfortunately does a real disservice to recent or younger fans. I have enjoyed seeing a lot of names I'd forgotten (Eddie Goines, wow), and I'll add a few more for fun:

    John Randle!
    Chartric Darby
    DeShone Myles - thought he was gonna be the answer at MLB
    TJ Duckett
    Anton Palepoi (go Ruskell!)
    Antonio Edwards - I really only remember his highlight from when they scored 21 in the 4th quarter against the Broncos to come back (1996? starring my boy Friesz). Blackmon I think hit Elway from the blind side on a blitz, Edwards scooped it up, and it took him like a minute 15 to run 80+ yards to the end zone



    And...how have we not already mentioned...

    I once peed in a urinal next to Yarno at the Corner Club in Moscow. I'm 5'5" tall. Did I feel inadequate next to him? Nah, just amazed that in my drunken stupor I was peeing next to a former Seahawk. This was in the Fall of 1980.

    Precisely.

    I have to say when I first saw this topic pop up I thought it was destined to go to the bad place by page 4 at best. I'm stoked to see all the awesomeness and great attitudes inside. This thread is actually pretty epic.

    Well done 12s.

    I actually saw Rice's first game as a Seahawk in person when they played the Cardinals. I remember that season our WR's dropped damn near everything that hit them in the hands.

    First throw to Jerry Rice?

    Drop.

    So what you're saying is that the original sniveling John Elway was Dorsett. Interesting... did not know that.

  • It's funny how the younger Hawks fans get butt hurt over a thread like this. I don't care how long someone's been a fan but find it interesting who they choose. Not rubbing anyone's nose in their choice but you can tell from that choice how long they have been following the team. There is plenty of room on the bus, and all are welcome. Some of us old farts have been around long enough to remember the expansions teams first game. Shame on us, not the younger crowd. Enjoy this success, it will not last forever. I just hope the Hawks do what we long time fans expect them to do, multiple times. I for one would love to see a generation of Hawk fans come in to their fandom prime expecting to win every game. This current team is that good.

    Carryon.

  • Honestly, I became a Hawks fan in 2005 when I got stationed here. I have season tickets in the 131 section, and I went to every home game from 7-9 all the way to the playoffs. Watched every Tarvaris start, and rooted for him to do well the entire way. I can't name too many old guys outside of our hall of famers, and the well knowns, but I am a more knowledgeable fan about our current team than most people I know, and I am not just a casual fan. I spend the entire offseason with my mouth watering.

    Also, BlueTalons, that is Byron Maxwell, a very fantastic backup CB that would be on Jacksonville's roster tomorrow. (Or almost ANY team, but the Jags would snag him, because Gus ain't stupid)

    Me too - I remember him making a couple of big plays for the Hawks. Made me think of a few other players in the Seattle secondary from years past:

    Ike Charlton
    Merton Hanks (yep, the former Niner)
