Seattle Seahawks: Top Seahawks Quarterbacks of All Time (1976-2011)
Except for the Shaun Alexander era, and perhaps now, with Marshawn Lynch beasting out of the backfield, the Seattle Seahawks have generally been regarded as a passing team.
Some great receivers and running backs have lined up in blue and green—but here are the best QBs to ever toss the pigskin at the now-departed Kingdome or at what is known as CenturyLink Field.
Players had to have played at least 20 games in a Seahawks uniform to be considered.
