In recent years, the Seattle Seahawks have emerged as regular Super Bowl contenders. They made three trips to the big game to close out the 2005, 2013, and 2014 seasons. Seattle won Super Bowl XLVII decisively — a 43-8 blowout over the Denver Broncos — while the other two trips involves close losses (the Seahawks faced a combined deficit of 15 points).
Rabid Seattle fans blame these losses upon poor officiating and a baffling late-game decision to throw into the end zone, rather than run in the football from the one-yard line.
The Seattle Seahawks franchise is now associated with efficient quarterback play, swarming defense, and a raucous 12th-man crowd capable of swinging ball games and triggering minor earthquakes in the Pacific Northwest. As a collective group, the nine greatest Seattle Seahawks ever tell a captivating story of elevating this franchise out of the depths of expansion misery and toward the pinnacle of the sport.
