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.
The Seattle Seahawks got their 2020 NFL regular season off to the perfect start, entering their Week 6 bye with a 5-0 record. However, the Seahawks dropped three of their four games that followed the bye, slipping to a 6-3 record.
Seattle responded, winning six of their final seven games to finish the regular season with a 12-4 record. Seattle’s Week 15 victory over the Washington Commanders was enough to secure them a spot in the playoffs, while their Week 16 win over the Rams resulted in the Seahawks clinching the NFC West.
The Seahawks were the only team in the league to not have a player test positive for COVID-19 during the pandemic affected season.
In their one playoff game, the Seahawks came up against their NFC West rivals as they hosted the Rams in Seattle. Although they came up against an injured Jared Goff, the Seahawks offensive line allowed Russell Wilson to be sacked on five occasions, as Los Angeles’ ferocious pass rush was too strong for Seattle.
Having been sacked 394 times in 144 regular-season games, Russell Wilson is now the most sacked player in NFL history (though nine seasons) since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger. Wilson has since subtly stated that he is unhappy with how the Seahawks are using and protecting him. And although he hasn’t asked for a trade, Wilson has made a list of teams that he wants to play for in case a trade does occur, that list includes the Cowboys, Raiders, Bears and Saints.
With Russell Wilson missing a big chunk of time, the season went down the drain for the Seahawks. Now questions surround his future and head coach Pete Carrolls future with the franchise as the 2022 season quickly approaches.
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 2022-23 season. Do the Seattle Seahawks have the star power to make it all the way to the playoffs and win the Super Bowl in 2023?
Have a read on below at SportsTips expert picks & preview on the Seattle Seahawks:
Pete Carroll returns for another season as the head coach of the Seattle Seahawks and this season might be his toughest challenge yet as it looks like they are headed for a full on rebuild. This will be his 17th season overall as a head coach in the National Football League and his 13th as the head coach of the Seattle Seahawks.
His overall record as a head coach is 163-114-1 while his record in Seattle is 119-73-1. He has one Super Bowl ring as the head coach of the Seattle Seahawks. He has made the playoffs in three out of the last four seasons with the Seahawks.
There have been plenty of questions surrounding this team‘s offense heading into the season as there seems to be a quarterback battle between Drew Lock and Genò Smith going on in Seattle. They will also be without their star running back Chris Carson after he decided to retire during the off-season so Rashaad Penny looks set to be the number one guy.
Freddy Swain, Tyler Lockett, and DK Metcalf are likely to be the three starting wide receivers while Noah Fant is going to be the starting tight end. The one glaring weakness that they will need to improve is their offensive line if they want to be competitive this season.
The Seattle Seahawks defense has been the staple of their team for the last decade or so but it has undergone a lot of changes coming into the last few seasons. The star on this defense is going to be Jamal Adams at the safety position. While Shelby Harris and Poona Ford make up a solid defensive line pairing.
While their defense isn’t necessarily a weakness for them, it certainly isn’t as strong as it has been in the past and they will have to work a lot harder to become one of the top units in the National Football League this season.
Last season the Seattle Seahawks finished with a record of 7-10 and they are expected to be worse then they were during the 2021-22 season. Oddsmakers expect the Seattle Seahawks to win around five to six of their seventeen games during the 2022-23 National Football League season. The odds for betting the over on the win line are currently (-140), while the odds for the betting the under on the win line are currently (+120) heading into the 2022-23 season.
Their odds to win their division are currently (+1600), while their odds to bring home a Conference Championship are (+7000) at the moment. Their current odds to win the Super Bowl and bring home the Lombardi Trophy at the end of the season are listed at (+15000) heading into the 2022-23 National Football League season. This puts them as one of the longshots to bring home the title this season.
They are currently the favorites in four of their seventeen games this season. As usual they are expected to win more games on their home field instead of having more wins on the road. They come into the 2022-23 National Football League season expected to be two possession favorites in zero of their seventeen games and two possession underdogs in four of their seventeen games this season, as they are at least eight and a half point underdogs in games against the Chargers, Bucs, Rams and Chiefs.
It’ll be interesting to see how this team performs after all the changes during the offseason and while playing in such a top heavy conference like the NFC. Due to the massive amount of parity in the National Football League, you never truly know what is going to happen from season to season. But all signs point towards the Seattle Seahawks being on the less successful end of the spectrum during the 2022-23 National Football League season.
