Seattle Seahawks: News, Schedule, Roster, Score, Injury Report

History

The Seattle Seahawks came into the fold of the NFL over 46 years ago back in 1976 as an expansion team. The club is the only franchise in the league operating out of the Pacific Northwest region of North America. The has led to a hugely diverse fan base being created that includes fans all the way from Oregon, Alaska, Idaho, Montana as well as Canadian fans out of British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatchewan.

To this end, Seahawks fans are collectively called the “12s” or the “12th Man” due to their sheer magnitude. Not to mention, the franchise has accrued two Guinness World Records for the loudest crowd noise at a sporting event. The first instance came in September 2013 after a 136.6 decibels level was registered. Moreover, the record was then extended to 137.5 dB just a few months later.

The Seattle Seahawks have won 10 division titles and three conference championships in their time along with becoming the only team to have played in the AFC and the NFC. Additionally, they have appeared in three Super Bowls winning one of them by defeating the Denver Broncos at Super Bowl XLVII. They dropped two championship chips to the Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots at Super Bowl XL and Super Bowl XLIX respectively.

The Seahawks have gone 9-4 heading through week 14 of the 2020 season and are placed second in the NFC West. Additionally, they managed to secure a franchise-best start of 5-0 to kick off the season to break their 11-5 record from last year.

Logo

The logo has undergone minimal change since its inception and has always been a right-facing Seahawk. There have only been two alterations, the second of which was barely significant simply seeing a minor color change to team colors from light blue to grey.

The original logo was derived from an art book called “Art of the Northwest Coast Indians” and the logo lasted for 2020 years until it was modernized in 2020 to virtually depict what it is currently. At the time of the first change, the team colors went from royal blue and green to navy blue, light blue, and green.

Owner Achievements

Paul Allen who was the co-founder of Microsoft also owned the Seattle Seahawks along with the Portland Trailblazers of the NBA. He died of septic shock on October 12, 2018, related to cancer diagnosed off a non-Hodgkin lymphoma that came about in 2009. His sister Jody Allen picked up the ownership of the Seattle Seahawks among some other properties following his death.

Additionally, Jody Allen co-founded the Paul G Allen Family Foundation in 1990 and the foundation has given out more than $469 million in grants. Additionally, the outreach has taken place across 1400 non-profit organizations and this speaks to the magnitude of success that the foundation has built around the life of Paul Allen.

Sponsors

Walmart inked out a partnership heading into the 2020 season with the Seattle Seahawks with an aim to honor a community MVP with the ultimate game day experience. The opportunity entailed a chance to be the only family in attendance during the Seahawks home opener and raise the 12 flag.

Additionally, Amazon and Byte, the world’s fastest teeth aligner company also announced partnerships with the Seahawks. Interestingly enough, Seahawks safety Quandre Diggs is undergoing the treatment with Byte that will allow fans to see credentialed results. Moreover, the Seattle based outfit has had tie-ups with BECU and Health-ade.

Charity

1995 saw the establishment of the Seattle Seahawks charitable foundation (SSCF) that worked for the promotion of emotional, intellectual, and physical development of the youth by enhancing opportunities in sports and fitness activities. Additionally, Head Coach Pete Carroll started ‘A Better Seattle’ to prevent youth and gang violence in the greater Seattle area.

GM John Schneider and wife Traci also launched Ben’s Fund in 2012 in honor of their son Ben who was diagnosed with Autism. The entity provides funds and grants to families across Washington state to help cover costs associated with medical bills for children on the autism spectrum.
