The Seattle Seahawks are once again proving they are a not a football team to be trifled with in the NFC West. As fans with 2012 Seattle Seahawks tickets this season can attest, the stands at CenturyLink Field have been filled to the brim with those faithful who are now reveling in a great running game on offense and one of the best defenses in the league. Suddenly, the future seems quite bright for a team not too long ago wondering if they would ever be able to creep back over the .500 mark. Well, this season it appears the team is on course to do just this, and they may even enter the postseason as a dangerous Wild Card with Super Bowl ambitions,
The Seahawks are not a particularly old franchise. They first took the field in 1976. In this brief time they have won the division 11 times and been to the Super Bowl once. This single Super Bowl appearance came in 2006. Somehow much of the nation had forgotten about the city and the dominant roster during the 2005 regular season. This team had six Pro Bowl players, with five on offense and one on defense. Offensive linemen Walter Jones and Steve Hutchinson gave Matt Hasselbeck time to get comfortable in the pocket and pick defenses apart. They, along with full back Mack Strong, also created giant holes for Shaun Alexander to break the single-season touchdown record by a running back.
The defensive players may not have been given they deserved, but the unit silenced some of the best offensive teams in the league that season and paved the way to the Super Bowl. There the club met the Pittsburgh Steelers and, though the Steelers won, the game demonstrated just how real a contender this franchise was and how excited this fan base could be.
The current team still plays at the same stadium. Though it is now known as CenturyLink Field, it remains a venue with over 67,000 seats. Somehow the stadium is concurrently spacious and intimate, making it one of the most enjoyable live football experiences in the nation.
