Seattle Seahawks Playoff Details
Seattle’s passion for the Seahawks is seismic. Literally.
In 2010, Head Coach Pete Carroll’s first season and Quarterback Matt Hasselbeck’s last, the Seahawks edged into the playoffs with a lackluster 7-9 record. But the 12th Man – the name given to the notoriously loud Seattle fanbase — still came to play. But the team faced a tough draw, the New Orleans Saints, which many critics thought would be a lopsided game.
Not so. Seattle upset the defending champions 41-36. The best part? Running Back Marshawn Lynch broke at least seven tackles for 67-yards and caused an uproar so loud, Seattle registered a bona fide earthquake in response.
Few fanbases are as fervent.
Carroll and Lynch were two of many crucial pickups as Seattle built its team. The 2010 Seahawks also drafted Safeties Earl Thomas (1st Round) and Kam Chancellor (5th Round). Seattle followed with undervalued Stanford cornerback — and former wide receiver — Richard Sherman in 2011 (5th Round) and Wisconsin quarterback Russell Wilson in 2012 (3rd Round).
Meet peak Seahawks, aka the Legion of Boom. Aside from a Super Bowl XL appearance (2005-6) against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the pre-2012 Seahawks were early-rounders at best; Hasselbeck could only capitalize once in his six playoff shots.
In Wilson’s 2012 rookie campaign, the Seahawks won a confident eleven games and defeated the Redskins in the Wild Card Round. The next round, though a loss, foreshadowed the fortune of Seattle to come. Wilson brought his team back from a 20-point deficit in the fourth to narrowly lose to the Atlanta Falcons 30-28.
The bitter loss must have fueled Seattle. The Legion bounced back the following season, earning the NFC’s coveted top seed and a ripe 13-3 record. The 2013 Seahawks built one of the great rosters of the decade. It showed. Seattle defeated their budding rivals the San Francisco 49ers 23-17 in the NFC Championship to face Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII.
These Seahawks were one of the great defenses in NFL history, and Manning was one of the great offensive minds. The narrative was clear: elite offense versus elite defense. The media chose pedigree in Manning’s Broncos. The media chose wrong. Seattle sunk their claws in the Broncos from the beginning. In an out-of-left field rout, the Seahawks became the first team in Super Bowl history to put numbers on the boards off a pick-six, kick-off return, and safety. Seattle won with ease, 43-8.
And the Seahawks were about to do it again. Down by four at the one-yard line with 28-seconds left, Seattle was in formation to win back-to-back Super Bowls. Lynch lined up to punch-in the win. Instead, Carroll, at the advice of his offensive coordinator Dan Quinn, elected to throw the ball. Wilson threw an interception to the Patriots’ Malcom Butler. Seahawks lost Super Bowl XLIX to the Patriots, 28-24.
Nevertheless, the Seahawks established themselves as one of the most dominant NFL teams of the 2010s and a consistent postseason contender.
