Based in Seattle, Washington since 1976 as an expansion team, the Seattle Seahawks compete in the National Football League’s West division of the National Football Conference. Owned by the co-owner of Microsoft and coached by Pete Carroll, the Seahawks function with a strong and stable foundation of management and leadership. Because no other NFL team occupies the Pacific Northwest region of the country, the Seahawks acquired a large fan base, drawing interest not only from their home state of Washington, but also from surrounding states like Oregon, Idaho, Alaska, and Montana.

The support of such a large area of people truly stands out in the NFL, setting the Guinness World Record for the loudest crowd at a sporting event twice, causing a small earthquake in Seattle recorded by seismic equipment after a particularly heroic run by Marshawn Lynch in 2010 in a playoff game against the New Orleans Saints. Not only does this quality assure fame for the Seattle Seahawks, but also helps them win games. Players admit that the crowd noise motivates them, diverts the opposing team, and makes it difficult for the competition to hear their play calls, resulting in false starts and low reaction times.

Having a history of magnificent players, nine former Seahawks earned induction into the Pro Football Hall of Famers with their performance on the Seattle team. Even more significant, four of these individuals, Steve Largent, Cortez Kennedy, Walter Jones, and Kenny Easley played exclusively for the Seahawks, earning their supreme recognition solely on their contributions to this team.

With ten division titles, three conference championships, three appearances at the Super Bowl in 2005, 2013 and 2014, and one Super Bowl Championship, the Seahawks can rank as a successful team in NFL history.

A team with past victories and the potential to build on this prosperity, the Seattle Seahawks remain a beloved team in the league.
