With Hall of Fame weekend coming up, I think it's a good time to write something HOF'ish about the Hawks. Yes, there's Largent, there'll be Jones, and so on. it's much easier to make a Top 10 Seahawks of all time rather than a list of Seahawks who were fan favorites and made an impact for fans, but will never even sniff the HOF. Here we go! (In no particular order)
Floyd 'Pork Chop' Womack was a fan favorite for years until he left town just this off-season to join the Browns. however, Womack was a key reserve for the O-Line for many years, since joining the team as a 5th round pick in 2001.
(Note: Getty Images isn't giving me pictures of Zorn's playing days, so you will settle for this)
Zorn could get the Joe Namath treatment and get into the Hall of Fame for his sheer grittiness and his being the leader of a bad team. however, Zorn will always be a Seahawk fan favorite.
Strong will never sniff the Hall of Fame because of his position, but any person could make a case for Strong being one of the best lead blockers of all time. He will always be remembered in Seattle.
Sorry about no picture, shows you how unknown this guy is. 4 years he was the Kicker for Seattle, and could run, pass, kick, he could do everything. he will be remembered as arguably the most athletic kicker in Seahawks history.
Gray started his career with the Seahawks in his 5th year in the NFL. over a decade later, Gray still remains with the team on the Reserve-Retired list. even in the end, he stays on with the team.
'The Boz' wasn't a very good player, but he was a fan favorite, nonetheless, and his infamous mullet will always be remembered in Seahawks history. Unfortunately, Bosworth will be most remembered for being trucked over by Bo Jackson.
Porter was a vicious rusher and was such a great linebacker for the Seahawks. He is relatively unknown, which is sad, considering how good he was.
Paul Skansi was probably the most dependable 3rd down receiver the Hawks ever had until Bobby Engram came along. He is best known for his 25 yeard TD reception from Dave Krieg on a last second heave in a game against the Chiefs, where Derrick Thomas had an NFL record 7 sacks, yet the Seahawks won the game. But, to Hawk fans, Skansi is remembered for much more than that.
Mili, a career Seahawk, was up and down, with good and bad seasons, but, like Strong and Gray, have been with the team for a long time. Mili's stay in Seattle came to a somewhat uprupt end in 2007, but he is still remembered as a solid TE.
Blades is regarded as the #2 receiver, behind Steve Largent, in Seahawks history. he was a consistent playmaker who made up the solid duo of Largent-Blades for several years.
well, that's the end. Missed anybody? comments? That's what the comment box is for! Give me some constructed feedback, I'd love to hear from you guys.
Hasta La Bye Bye!
