In case you hadn’t heard, the Seahawks are celebrating their 40th anniversary. They have put together a website to look back at every season and are unveiling them a few at a time.
The Seahawks had fans vote for their favorite 40 players this summer, and 32 of them were honored in person at halftime of the home opener on Sunday. We’re guessing the eight others are still playing — either with the Seahawks or with other teams (e.g., Matt Hasselbeck of the Colts).
It was great to see former stars Sam Adams, Shaun Alexander, Jordan Babineaux, Brian Blades, Chad Brown, the late Dave Brown (via wife Rhonda), Jeff Bryant, Dan Doornink, Kenny Easley, Jacob Green, Darrell Jackson, Norm Johnson, Walter Jones, Cortez Kennedy, Dave Krieg, Steve Largent, Warren Moon, Paul Moyer, Joe Nash, Rufus Porter, Steve Raible, Shawn Springs, Mack Strong, Robbie Tobeck, Marcus Trufant, Manu Tuiasosopo, Curt Warner, Chris Warren, Ricky Watters, John L. Williams, Dave Wyman and Jim Zorn.
Jackson, the top receiver on Mike Holmgren’s teams, raised the flag for the home opener. He said the Super Bowl XL loss still bugs him.
If you want some great stories from Wyman and Moyer on the teams of the 1980s and 1990s, you will love our book, “Then Zorn Said to Largent.”
