Your best Seahawk moments
Mon May 10, 2021 6:24 am
  • For the Seahawks.net podcast I want to take peoples favourite Seahawk moments and we will play them off against each other tournament style until we are left with the ultimate seahawk moment.

    There will likely be the obvious ones , beastquake, largent / hardin etc but I'm hoping for some off the wall ones as well, think Mike Bennett on a bicycle.

    The moments dont have to be profound. What moments stick in your mind for whatever reason. Come share with us. Im hoping it will add some interaction to the podcast. How far will your suggestion go?

  • Two that stick out, that are not the obvious ones, are Super Bowl 49 and the Hawks trip out to London.
    Amazing experiences. Sure the ending of 49 was painful, but that was bucket list stuff for me. Experiencing a Super Bowl in person was something I'll never forget, zero regrets and I feel very fortunate.
    As far as London goes, we have never been out of the country (other than Canada and Mexico), so London was the trip of a lifetime. Spending a week plus out there, seeing so many other Hawks fans literally from all over the world, priceless. And some of the UK Seahawker events made things much more fun. And the people in London were among the most friendly we have ever come across :irishdrinkers:
    Our trip to the Miami game in 2010, along with the trip out to New Orleans were both incredible. The amount of Hawks fans who made those two trips was impressive to say the least. And a lot of cool get togethers w/fans leading up to the games.
    Another great road trip was out to St. Louis, there was a huge crew of Midwest Seahawkers that weekend. It was the game that the Rams fumbled on 4th and goal to basically end the game. Great moment, and the tailgating was incredible.
    Or a trip out to San Fran at Candlestick. Hawks smoked them, yet again. And by the 3rd quarter, the stadium was maybe 40 percent full. And MOST of the Hawks fans made their way to the end zone area, and had the Let's go Seahawks chants going for most of the 4th quarter.
    Hawks at Denver when it was 8 degrees, Josh Brown makes a 50 yard FG to win it. Then a bunch of us hung out with the Trufant family. Great day, even with the crazy cold.

    Nothing too crazy, but still some great memories.

  • The Tip at the NFC Championship. Everyone knew the winner of that game would destroy the AFC champion, so it had a Superbowl vibe against our arch nemesis. My voice had gone out in the 3rd quarter, but I was still doing what I could to make some noise. When the ball came out the stadium held its breath, watched it arc down to the corner of the end zone, then exploded while the ball hung in the air as Crabtree fell away. My full throated roar came out somewhere between a dog whistle and a squeaky door hinge...

    Fast forward a couple weeks and when Kam Chancellor decleated Damaryus Thomas in the first quarter, I knew the game was over.

    Love this, could you describe a specific moment, I was thinking of the Seahawks running out at Wembley and completely owing the Raiders from a noise POV?

  • I don't remember the year but it was a game in the old AFC West on the road in Kansas City. Derrick Thomas sacked Dave Krieg 7 times but on the final play of the game, Krieg eluded Thomas for a potential 8th sack and hit Paul Skansi for the game winning TD! One of many Seahawks memories that stand out but perhaps somewhat forgotten or not known about from the younger fans.

  • GW touchdown in OT vs. the Packers. Watching that 16 point comeback unfold right in front of us. Then the game winner in my end zone, running right at us. Seeing Kearse come up with that, and screaming WE'RE GOING TO THE SUPER BOWL. That was just an insane comeback, and to go to the Super Bowl......then to get home and receive the email saying I was selected to go. What a day

    Another one: The Hawks are playing at Arizona, and the game is at ASU stadium. I'm coming back from grabbing some food at halftime and I start walking down the stairs. The Zona "fans" start screaming at me "Alexander Sucks!" and as they are yelling it (I was in my Alexander jersey) he runs one back like 88 yards. Then does the baseball home run pose. I just turned around and threw my arms up in the air and looked around.

    Getting back to the limo a bunch of us rented (Mr. Mrs. Seahawk, Paintedhawk, Kiltman, Cannonball etc.) after the Beast Quake game. We are all laughing and saying "We won???"
    I believe we were 12 point underdogs in that game. Just the pure shock that at 7-9 we knocked off the Super Bowl Champs made that post game ride home a classic.

    Back in I believe 1996: Houston Oilers are playing at the kingdome, game is basically over. They are gonna' kick a fairly easy FG to win the game. We are leaning back in our seats, basically pouting because they are about to lose. Back then we sat in the end zone just to the left of the goal post, about 10 rows up. So, this was literally right in front of us.
    Michael Mccrary blocks it, grabs it on a bounce and flips it back to Blackmon, who runs it in for a touchdown.
    That was crazy, and during a time when there wasn't a ton of winning going on. Shoot, the entire sidelines ran on to the field basically. John Friesz was the QB back then.......

    London, the night before the game vs. Oakland. The UK Seahawkers and other Seahawkers take over this bar. It was packed to the rim, standing room only. Steve Raible was there talking to the crowd for a while. Just a great night. And I had no idea the Hawks were so big in Germany. When he asked if there were any German Seahawkers in there, the place got really loud.

  • Watching the 2005 game vs. the Giants. With every additional false start, the stadium only got louder, and Jay Feely's missed FGs only gave more evidence that the 12th Man was very much part of the final score. That game put Seahawk Fans on the map, not just the solid play of the team that year.

    I'd love to hear from fans who were at that game what it was actually like; maybe they can chime in here. I think we were just as loud in my friends' home in Wasilla, Alaska, as many fans were in the stands!

  • Nice one ^
    That was a blast. All you could do is laugh after every Jay Feely missed FG.
    Plus, Shockey doing his little celebration dance to the camera........only to figure out that Feely missed AGAIN :mrgreen:
    It was electric in the stadium. VERY loud, like playoff loud. And it just kept building after every false start. 11 on the day, that is just crazy. 11 false starts. Yes, Fans CAN contribute to a win, period.

  • First game I ever attended Nov 3rd, 2013 was the biggest comeback, 21 points, in Seahawks history against Tampa & propelled them to a SB title a couple months later. I believe this was the "we can do it" moment for this team.

    The play that sticks out for me was the Golden Tate punt return when he played it inside his own 5 in the corner, which is something a punt returner should never do, & returned it to the Tampa side of the field flipping the field position & was probably the reason they eventually won that game & maybe even the SB. Nothing was going right for us & that play turned everything around IMO.

    Another memorable aspect of that game experience was sitting at the 50 10 rows up behind the Tampa bench & we were sitting beside a couple from Tampa who had re-located to the PNW a few years earlier so they were obviously there to cheer for Tampa. We hit it off with this couple & were very cordial & every time Tampa did something good she offered a fist bump or high-5 which I reluctantly & jokingly reciprocated. The funny part of this was when we tied it up to send it to OT I jokingly offered her a high-5, the 1st time I'd done that all game, which she refused. I guess she knew it was over. Even her husband got a good chuckle out of it.

    Good times.

  • Even though it was in a loss, and in a crap town called Cleveland.............
    Nate Burleson takes a punt 90 plus for a TD. We are all yelling NOOOOOOOO, then it was GOOOO GOOOOOOO GOOOOOO, and he took it to the house. Hilarious.
    The fans in Cleveland......not so much.

    Ok, one more. At the game in Indy. Peyton Manning is absolutely shredding the Hawks all day (In fact, they pulled him early to not rub it in) Meanwhile, Seneca was the QB. Seneca does his standard run out of bounds instead of throwing it away. I yell &^%% throw the ball away.
    The lady in front of us (I was sitting with Shadow from this page) says "Can you please not cuss?"
    I look down and I say in a calm voice "Well, you guys have Peyton Manning, and we have Seneca flippen Wallace"
    Her husband turns to her and says "he makes a good point" :mrgreen:
    True story. And those fans were next level friendly. The Hawks were just the next victim on their list in a long string of 10 plus win seasons.

  • I have been fortunate enough to be in the house for almost all the biggest moments....and a whole lot of their lowest. But one night that will always be in my mind was the night that Kam Chancellor took the soul of Vernon Davis. Even though it was flagged I still say it was one of the cleanest most devastating hits I have seen. And it had a long lasting effect,

  • That was unreal. And a clean hit. The Refs just couldn't fathom a guy having his soul taken out.
    And that collective Ooooooooh from the crowd. He knocked Davis around quite a few time. And Davis was a heck of a player.

    Yeah, I don't get what Kam was supposed to do. It wasn't a even a defenseless receiver or a headshot.

    Didn't we end up with a goal line stand(maybe it was a turnover) then took the ball the length of the field for a TD of our own?

    94 yards that bad boy. Apparently Burleson is the only player to have 3 punt returns of over 90 yards.

  • We tend to want to forget the 2005 Seahawks because of Superbowl XL, but that team deserves more respect.

    Making the first Superbowl in franchise history after beating Carolina was a top moment. Shaun and Matt holding the NFC Championship trophy at midfield was a first in team history. At that time, forgetting what happens 2 weeks later, was an awesome moment.



    Also from that season, Hasselbeck sliding into the endzone to take down the (at the time) Redskins is a great memory. This was from the 2005 divisional round, and was our first playoff victory since 1984. That's 21 years without a playoff win before Matt put the team on his shoulders. Shaun Alexander was injured early in this game with a concussion. It's at the 2:40 mark.



    Other honorable mentions:

    Romo dropping the field goal snap 2006 wildcard



    Blair Walsh missed field goal 2015 wildcard



    Shaun Alexander 5 TDs in first half vs Vikings from September 29, 2002



    Kam Chancellor takes Vernon Davis' soul December 23, 2012

  • Was there for all the best moments at home over the past two decades but I wasn't there for XLVIII which will eat at me for the rest of the days. But I was there for XL*. :censored: :censored: :censored:

    One time my girlfriend and I were trying to get Seahawks players to sign a poster for a disabled 12 who lived in the midwest. This was the early days of .NET were we would do things like that as contest prizes, giveaways, etc. Anyways, it was raining and we were standing behind the Kingdome where the players came out to return to their cars after the games. Many players walked right by without stopping to sign anything. Jay Belamy even rubbed his arms up and down feigning how cold he was as he walked by, like we weren't? Standing there for a solid hour or more waiting...

    Out comes Jon Kitna, who was the star of the game and he walked down and signed for just about everybody. When he got to us we said "Jon this is for a disabled fan would you mind signing it for him?" He simply said "I'll sign for anybody."

    All class.

    Another time former Center Robbie Tobeck was walking casually outside of the stadium after a game...I walked up to him and you would have thought I was an old friend. We chatted for a solid 10 minutes or so. Hell of a guy, couldn't be nicer.

    In Cheney I shared a pitcher of beer with Punter Jeff Feagles. Hilarious dude. Said he wasn't afraid of Holmgren or his curfews, LOL.

    Played basketball with Koren Robinson, Bobby Engram and Darrell Jackson in Bellevue at the gym I belonged to at the time. Koren busted out a 360 degree spin and slam dunk like it was nothing. I told them they better not injure themselves or I would be really pissed, lol.

    Tons more stories but that's a start.

  • The 2010 WC game, because I was partying with my friend in Belltown and having an absolute blast. The upset victory and the Beast Quake just made it all the more memorable. I was running my mouth with jokes that were landing, and keeping a table of people entertained. It was that moment when I got my 15 minutes of fame, because, I'm really just the lame nerd who tells dad jokes and never got invited to parties in HS. People who were meeting me for the first time got the impression that I was always the life of the party.

  • It may not have been a win that mattered at the time but in an important year, every win ultimately counted: Sherm's pick 6 against the Texans was a turning point for our Defense in a game that looked for 55 minutes like sure loss, and in a season that made the Legion of Boom a household name. (and didn't he lose a shoe in the process of getting away from the TE, before returning it to the EZ? What a moment in a big game!

  • Biggest 2 highlights for me have to be attending the 05 and 13 NFC championship games. In retrospect, pretty fortunate for me considering where I live. 2005 didn't;t have much drams as that game was well in hand early. I remember trying to prepare myself for the Niners scoring in 13 as they drove down the field, just preparing myself emotionally so that a loss wouldn't;'t be as bad a s stomach punch. Then it all happened so fast, the past to the end zone, tipped, then picked. Hugging total strangers who I had bcome good friends with over the course of 3 hours.

    Another one I'll throw in here is an early season win over the Rams in 2003. I had only started making the trip to Seattle for games a few years earlier (1 per year) and to that point they were all losses, including the sharpie game. I didn't look good as the Hawks are down going into the 4th and to make it worse we were surrounded by Ram fans. But Hasselbeck leads them on a comeback and Koren Robinson of all people scores the game winner. Another weird thing about that game is Shaun Alexander not on the field the first couple of series, and this being before social media having no idea what was going on. Then we see him come running from the tunnel in full uniform and shortly thereafter the scoreboard flashes contrast to him and his wife on the birth of their first child.

    That was a fun video to watch. The half time stats made me laugh. Krieg finished 12-13 200 yards and 3 td

    I wasn’t there for that game but watching football in the Kingdome is something I will never forget.

  • Occurred multiple times -- Marshawn Lynch slogging through the bodies of multiple defenders mauling him, yet he manages to stay on his feet, carrying them along like massive overstuffed burlap sacks, determined to pick up every possible inch on the play. Thrilled me every time it happened.

  • My favorite in person memory was the 2012 game against the 49ers at the Clink. We'd lost 4 straight to them, and just OBLITERATED them, 42-13. I will never forget the blocked field goal returned 90 yards by Sherman to put us up 21-0.

    Also, a fond memory almost no one remembers is the Raiders game at Husky Stadium in 2000. The Raiders were cruising to the playoffs, 11-3 and primed for the #1 seed. The Hawks were awful in Holmgren's 2nd year, sitting at 5-9. With 2:40 left, the Hawks were down 24-19 facing a 2nd and 20 at their own 18 in the pouring rain. Ricky Watters busted through the line and was on his way to an 82 yard TD. Unfortunately, Charles Woodson just managed to knock the ball out of Watters arm at the Raiders 28. The ball flew forward and was recovered by Marquez Pope at the 2. He slid into the endzone on the rain-soaked field, and was touched down for a safety, giving Seattle 2 points and the ball. Jon Kitna then drove the Hawks down the field and threw a 9 yard TD pass to rookie Darrell Jackson with 33 seconds left, giving us a 27-24 victory. It handed the #1 seed to the Titans.

    He truly was a beast. I would love to see a stat related to how many times Marshawn finished a play not being put to the ground. I feel like several times a game the whistle would blow and he was standing with a couple guys hanging off him.

  • Some great stuff here guys. I need moments though, a short sharp point in time where everything in the world is good because of what you have seen or experienced.

    I plan to follow this up with best games and best players but as of right now its all about the brevity.

    It's not just about sensational plays, we have as stated above many of those that each of us remembers, there are a lot of moments when we were not good as in playoff year after year that made us all gravitate to the Seahawks and embrace them. Things that were uniquely us, the Hotdogs, the Fake field goal and pass to a pudgy kicker, Bill the Beer man circling the Dome, Joe Nash countering the Bengals with fake injuries, the Elway trying to calm the crowd noise and appealing to the Officials, Boz's Shirt sales in Denver.

    I literally said at the start it wasn't just about individual plays. Whole games aren't moments unless they provide a backdrop to a moment. Like the Paul Skansi example.

    Making the first Superbowl in franchise history after beating Carolina was a top moment. Shaun and Matt holding the NFC Championship trophy at midfield was a first in team history. At that time, forgetting what happens 2 weeks later, was an awesome moment.



    Also from that season, Hasselbeck sliding into the endzone to take down the (at the time) Redskins is a great memory. This was from the 2005 divisional round, and was our first playoff victory since 1984. That's 21 years without a playoff win before Matt put the team on his shoulders. Shaun Alexander was injured early in this game with a concussion. It's at the 2:40 mark.



    Other honorable mentions:

    Romo dropping the field goal snap 2006 wildcard



    Blair Walsh missed field goal 2015 wildcard



    Shaun Alexander 5 TDs in first half vs Vikings from September 29, 2002



    Kam Chancellor takes Vernon Davis' soul December 23, 2012


    Thanks for sharing all that. Most of it was before my time, and never knew that Romo fumble happened lol

  • OK going for specific plays here's one for me from the Washington playoff game in 2005:
    -Draw play on 3rd down (I think) to Mack Strong late in the 4th that got a first down and into fg range that iced that game. My first ever playoff game, and that moment of knowing they were going to win and I'd be be coming back a week later for the NFCCG.

  • The moment is more personal than anything, as I had chosen the Seahawks as my team when I was six after having moved to the bay area (Niners and Raiders territory) from outside of Buffalo and they had a hard fought win in 1980 against the Chiefs early in the season. I liked how scrappy they were. Most of my friends had a lot of jokes about the Seachickens as the Raiders pretty much owned us for the following seasons, but along came 1983. In the first game, Shelton Robinson recovered a fumble and took it in for a touchdown. It was that moment when I believed we were going to get the monkey off our backs in the division and take the next step. Warner scored a touchdown a few minutes later to seal the victory (of course in typical Seahawks fashion, it wasn't that cut and dry as the Raiders scored two more touchdowns in garbage time to make it closer than it actually was). It was so good being able to smack talk my friends for the week.

  • Here's an underrated one I'll always treasure: Big Play Babs intercepting Drew Bledsoe at our own 42 with 11 seconds left and returning it to the Dallas 30 to set up a game winning FG after trailing most of the way in a lousy game. We won 13-10, scoring 10 of those points in the last 40 seconds (Matt Hasselbeck had hit Ryan Hannam for a tying TD on the previous drive). That was when I realized that '05 team could be special. For once, we snatched victory from the jaws of defeat. Also, Babs should really be remembered as 'Big Play Babs the Cowboy Killer'.

    The second item -- without question. When considering anything team related and not necessarily something occurring during a game, that was the moment: Paul Allen buying the team and keeping them in the Northwest. And then acquiring a top-tier coach and top-tier general manager. Easily number one on my list.

  • I flew up to Seattle and took my father to a game. It happened to be the one where Jeremy Stevens stress-tested his cup against the Raiders. Rainy night, we won, and after the game we couldn't find a taxi back to my hotel. We ended up walking back to my hotel and had a wonderful talk about life, told some dumb jokes, etc. He passed away shortly afterwards so it was the last time I saw him. A bittersweet memory to be sure.

    Yeah, I don't get what Kam was supposed to do. It wasn't a even a defenseless receiver or a headshot.

    Didn't we end up with a goal line stand(maybe it was a turnover) then took the ball the length of the field for a TD of our own?

    His head rocked back and that reaction looked like it was a head hit. The fact that he was not fined for it is absolute proof that it was legal. I don't know what refs are supposed to do when elite fast athletes have bang bang plays like this. It would easily be turned over by replay, like hundreds of other clean hits that got flagged.

    The Raider that kicked Steven's in the junk was Davis, a Pasco Washington native.

  • I have many good memories over the years, but the one that stands out for me was the Monday game against the Saints back in '13. I was able to take my son back up to Seattle for his first experience at a home game. The Hawks displayed utter domination in that game. When Avril stripped Brees and Bennett caught the ball and ran it in, the tone was set for the night. The energy was electric, but the crowd erupted on that play. My son looks up at me and mouths to me dad....my throat is bleeding. Classic

    I was going to include this as I also believe it set a world record for crowd noise

  • Seahawks vs Lions…2019. Flawless game by the Hawks. It was the first game I took my son to. If you recall Dickson faking the punt and running it from the end zone for a first…it was that game. As you can imagine, the already salty Detroit fans were obnoxious.

    As the game ended, Seahawks fans started to gather on the Hawks side and chanted “Seaaaaahaaaaawwks”. We got pretty close to the bench and joined the chorus.

    Frank Clark, my sons favorite player at the time, turns around and looks directly at my boy and throws his hands in the air while shouting “Seeeaaahaaaawks”.

    If expressions turned to gold, we’d be billionaires because my son was grinning ear to ear.

    I’ll cherish that forever.

    That was 2018. Clark was traded to the Chiefs before the 2019 draft.
