Following the merging of the AFL and NFL in 1970, the league quickly began planning the next expansion that would take the number of teams from 26 to 28.In 1972 a group of Seattle businessmen and community leaders announced their intentions to establish an NFL franchise for the city of Seattle, following a two year deliberation, the NFL confirmed Seattle and Tampa Bay as the league’s two newest franchises.
Following a public naming contest that had more than 20,000 entries, the name Seattle Seahawks proved to be the most popular of the 1,700 options, and was officially announced as the franchises name in June of 1975.
Both the Seahawks and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers entered the league for the 1976 NFL season. The Seattle claimed bragging rights in their first head to head match up with a 13-10 victory to secure their first win in franchise history.
A 30-13 victory over the Falcons in week 9 would be the Seahawks only other victory in their debut season, finishing with a 2-12 record. The Buccaneers went 0-14. After 7 seasons and no playoff appearances under inaugural coach Jack Patera, Chuck Knox was appointed as Seattle’s second head coach, bringing about the first era of Seahawks success.
Taking over a 4 win 5 loss team in 1983, Knox led the Seahawks to their first ever playoff appearance, after a 9-7 season earning them a wild card berth. In their debut postseason the Seahawks defeated the Broncos 31-7 and the Dolphins 27-20 to advance to their first ever AFC championship game, where they were eventually defeated 31-10 by the Oakland Raiders.
The following season Knox took out NFL Coach of the Year honours, as Seattle posted a 12-4 record, which resulted in a divisional round playoff loss to the Miami Dolphins.The Seahawks claimed their first division title in 1988, however would have to wait another 10 years for their second one as Seattle embarked on a decade of losing records and failed coaches.
The low point of this decade came in 1992, as Seattle posted a 2-14 win loss record. Following a 10 year stretch of mediocrity, Mike Holmgren became the head coach in 1999 leading the franchise to its second division title in just his first season.
In 2002, the Seahawks returned to the NFC for the first time since their debut season, as part of an NFL realignment plan that gave each conference four balanced divisions of four teams each. Star running back Shaun Alexander became the franchise’s first MVP recipient off the back of a league leading 1880 rushing yards in 2005. Alexander also took out the Offensive Player of the Year award.
With Holmgren and Alexander leading the way, Seattle posted a 13-3 regular season record earning them a place in the divisional round of the playoffs. After securing their first playoff victory since 1984, Seattle then defeated the Panthers to secure their first NFC conference championship and progress to their first ever Super Bowl.
The Seahawks were defeated 21-10 by the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XL. Holmgren departed the Seahawks following a 4-12 season in 2008, leaving the franchise with four division titles and one conference championship on his coaching resume.
Pete Carroll became the franchise’s eighth head coach in 2013 as the Seahawks were once again contenders in the NFC. In Carroll’s fourth season, Seattle recorded a franchise record 13-3 regular season record, with second year quarterback Russell Wilson running the offense.
The Seahawks claimed their second NFC conference championship and progressed to their second Super Bowl. Led by there #1 ranked team defense, Seattle defeated the Denver Broncos 43-8 to claim their first ever Super Bowl Championship. Linebacker Malcolm Smith was named Super Bowl MVP.
The Seahawks defensive performance in 2013 was acclaimed as one of the best in the Super Bowl era. The following season Seattle’s defense led them to within a single play from back to back Super Bowl victories. With Russell Wilson throwing a last possession red zone interception, to hand the Patriots victory. Seattle fell just four points shy of a second consecutive Super Bowl championship.
Since their Super Bowl heartbreak, Carroll and the Seahawks have continued to be a prominent threat coming out of the NFC, as Russell Wilson has developed into one of the premiere quarterbacks in the NFL.
If you are a fan of the Seattle Seahawks, then you know that the only thing that matters right now is how they are expected to perform in the 2020 / 2021 season. Do the Seattle Seahawks have the star power to make it all the way to the Super Bowl in 2021? Have a read on below at SportsTips expert picks & preview on the Seattle Seahawks:
Having held head coaching positions at three NFL franchises, Pete Carroll has found a home for himself in Seattle, and is now one of the most accomplished coaches in NFL history.
Since joining the Seahawks in 2010, Carroll has made the playoffs eight times in 10 seasons, his best of which was the two year stretch between 2013 and 2014, posting a 25-7 record, claiming back to back conference titles, and winning Super Bowl XLVIII. Carroll’s 133 wins currently places him 23rd on the all-time wins list as a head coach, a list he will undoubtedly continue to climb having not had a losing season since 2011.
With a great defensive system already established and quarterback Russell Wilson still performing at an MVP level, Carroll and the Seahawks should continue to be a prominent threat coming out of the NFC.
With the gradual decline of veteran stars such as Peyton Manning and Tom Brady, coinciding with the rapid rise to success of the likes of Lamar Jackson and Patrick Mahomes, 31-year-old Russell Wilson has often been glanced over for individual accolades as one of the league’s best quarterbacks.
In eight seasons as a pro, Wilson has led the league in touchdown passes, passer rating, as well as been invited to seven Pro Bowls, won multiple rookie of the year awards and led his team to Super Bowl success in 2013, all without polling a single career MVP vote. Although he has never had a losing season, Wilson may be a victim of the system he is in.
The Seahawks desire to run the football has limited Wilson to the 12th most pass attempts in 2019, and the 20th most pass attempts in 2018. Coming into 2020, Wilson will be relying on Tyler Lockett (WR) and D.K Metcalf (WR) to continue to develop, allowing Pete Carroll and offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer to tap into Wilson’s powerful and accurate throwing ability and allowing Wilson to finally fulfil his potential as a passer of the football the second half of his career.
One of the key players in Seattle’s memorable ‘Legion of Boom’ defence of the 2010’s, Bobby Wagner is looking to reignite the Seahawks defence in the new decade after a lacklustre 2019.
Having joined the Seahawks in 2012, Wagner’s impact on the team was instant, with Seattle ranking 1st, 1st, 1st, 1st, 3rd, 14th and 11th in team defence throughout Wagner’s first seven seasons, before ranking 22nd in 2019.
Even with the team defence slowly regressing, Wagner’s individual output has always been elite, with six Pro Bowl invitations, five All Pro First Team appearances, two time NFL tackles leader, Super Bowl XLVIII champion, and recognition in the NFL team of the 2010’s decade on his resume.
With the Seahawks drafting and acquiring defensive talent throughout free agency, Wagner, the 2019 defensive captain, will be looking to bring his teammates up to his elite standards, and once again make the Seahawks one of the league’s most competitive defences.
After an 11-5 regular season regular season record in 2019, the Seattle Seahawks were defeated 28-23 by the Green Bay Packers in the divisional round of the playoffs. Following their playoff exit, Seattle opened as 8th favourite to take Super Bowl LV with odds of +1800.
After the acquisition of First Team All Pro and Pro Bowl strong safety Jamal Adams on the 25th of July, Seattle’s championship odds shortened from +1833 to +1733. A noticeably small fluctuation given the impact Adams will be sure to have on Seattle’s 22nd ranked defense in 2019.
Although Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has never polled a career MVP vote, his 2019 form starts him as the third favourite to take out the award in 2020 with +938 odds.
Many have already dubbed this a two horse race between the two best quarterbacks in the AFC, Patrick Mahomes (+420) and Lamar Jackson (+763). However, if Wilson is able to lead Seattle out of the NFC, where he was the premiere quarterback last season, he will be a great value bet to claim his first ever MVP award.
