Seattle Seahawks

SEATTLE SEAHAWKS HISTORY & INFORMATION

2009 Seattle Seahawks Football Preview:

The 2009 season of the Seattle Seahawks may well be defined by one man, new Head Coach Jim Mora. This is the first year since 1998 that Mike Holmgren will not be patrolling the sidelines as the Hawks coach. But Mora has been with the Seahawks and was groomed to take over the club, so he’ll be ready to go in 2009. Matt Hasselbeck is back to lead the offense. Hasselbeck was injured for much of 2008, but with him healthy Seattle should be ready to start spreading the ball around the field again. The Seahawks have a big new weapon at wide receiver, TJ Houshmandzadeh, to pair with Deion Branch and Nate Burleson. On defense the Seahawks are led by Cory Redding, Patrick Kerney, Lofa Tatupu and Marcus Trufant. There is talent all over the Seattle lineup, so watch out for the Seahawks in 2009 as they will be one of the teams to beat in the NFC.

The Seattle Seahawks play in the West Division of the National Football Conference (NFC) of the National Football League (NFL). The team was founded in 1976 along with Tampa Bay as part if that year’s NFL expansion. Over the years Seattle Seahawks has switched conferences twice, and has played for both an AFC and NFC championship. While the team did have some playoff success in the 1980′s, the arrival of Mike Holmgren from his successful stint as Packers head coach was the boost the team needed to make it the contender it is today. The team has made the playoffs the last four years straight, even playing for a Super Bowl in 2005, losing to the Steelers. Holmgren has built a strong squad and the Seattle fans are notorious for making visiting teams tremble.

The Seattle Seahawks play their home games at Qwest Field in downtown Seattle, Washington. Opened in 2002, the stadium can hold up 72,000 spectators. The shape of the stadium and the volume of the crowd have led to Seattle referring to its home fans as the “12th Man”. Attend a Seattle Seahawks game and watch rowdy fans in the “Hawks Nest” in the north end zone make life tough for visiting teams. The breathtaking Seattle Seahawks skyline and Puget Sound as a backdrop make this a wonderful experience for any football fan.
