Five Fun Facts About The Seattle Seahawks

Filed under: 5 Fun Facts — by Mark on November 18, 2013

The Seattle Seahawks came into the NFL in 1976, the same year as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They have endeared themselves to football fans in the Pacific Northwest since then and are a big part of sports in the region. Here are five fun facts about this always entertaining NFL team.

It All Started In Cheney

Eastern Washington University is a small college located in Cheney, Washington, just west of Spokane. In 1976, the Seahawks got their on-field start there as it was the home of their first training camp. The club would actually hold training camp there from 1976 to 1985 and then come back for another run from 1986 to 2007.

Someone Had To Be First

The first quarterback the Seahawks ever took in the NFL Draft was Steve Myer out of the University of New Mexico in the fourth round in 1976. He threw six TD passes during his time with the team.

7 Quarterbacks And A Running Back

Seahawks Hall of Famer Steve Largent caught touchdown passes from eight different players during his career. He was thrown seven by quarterbacks (Dave Krieg, Jim Zorn, Steve Myer, Jeff Kemp, Gale Gilbert, Bill Munson, and Sam Adkins) and one by a running back (David Sims).

Take That… San Diego!

The first team that the Seahawks would defeat 20 or more times total in their history was the San Diego Chargers. Seattle actually lost the first nine games they played against San Diego, finally pulling off their first win in the series at home in 1981.

The First 5!

The first five running backs to have 100 yard games for the Seattle Seahawks were Sherman Smith, David Sims, Al Hunter, Dan Doornink, and Jim Jodat.

Five Fun Facts From Week 1 Of The 2013 NFL Season

Filed under: 5 Fun Facts — by Mark on September 11, 2013

1. The First Time Ever

The Kansas City Chiefs opened up the 2013 season with a 28-2 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. This was the first time in history that an NFL game had ended with that score.

2. Way To Start It Off!

When Colin Kaepernick threw for 412 yards in the 49ers season opening win over the Packers on September 8, 2013, it was the first 400 yard game in Week 1 in franchise history.

3. 8? Only 8?

Russell Wilson took the NFL by storm in 2012 and opened up 2013 by guiding his Seahawks to an opening week win over the Carolina Panthers. Wilson made a name for himself not just throwing but running with the ball in 2012, racking up three games where he finished with over 50 yards rushing. He had eight rushing yards in that opening week victory over the Panthers. That was less rushing yards than he had in any game during the whole 2012 season.

4. And He’s Done It Twice!

In the 49ers win over the Packers in Week 1 of the 2013 season, San Francisco receiver Anquan Boldin racked up 208 receiving yards. This was only the fourth time a receiver had caught over 200 yards worth of passes on the opening game of the season since the AFL-NFL merger of 1970. The other three times it was done was by Wes Chandler of the Saints in 1979, Irving Fryar of the Dolphins in 1994, and Anquan Boldin himself while playing for Arizona in 2003. This makes him the only player ever to have done this twice. He also did it the second time 10 years and one day after doing it the first time.

5. A Family Thing

Eli and Peyton Manning both threw for over 400 yards in their team’s games in Week 1 of the 2013 NFL season. This means that when they meet this coming weekend that it will be the first time in NFL history that two quarterbacks face each other in a game with both coming off of a 400 yard passing performance.
