Seattle Seahawks Tickets – Seahawks Look To Nhl For New Exec

NHL
by toff63

Most of the time, when a coach or exec leaves a team in the National Football League, the team looks to someone inside of the NFL for a replacement. The Seattle Seahawks, though, decided to look at another professional sports team for their latest exec replacement. News sites are reporting that the team is adding Peter McLoughlin as their new CEO, replacing departing CEO Tod Leiweke. McLoughlin is currently the CEO of the St. Louis Blues of the National Hockey League.

McLoughlin has been the CEO of the St. Louis Blues Enterprises since 2006. He was brought on to manage the Blues’ business operations like sales, marketing and finance. In his years since joining the Blues, his strategies have helped the team sell out many home games. Prior to his time in the NHL, McLoughlin spent more than two decades with Anheuser-Busch, which led to experience working in sports marketing campaigns. One of his roles at Anheuser-Busch was as their Vice President of Corporate Media.

His experience in sports extends before his time with Anheuser-Busch, because he also worked as senior unit manager at NBC Sports earlier in his career. In addition to his role as the Blues’ CEO, the Harvard graduate is also on the board of directors for the St. Louis Regional Chamber and Growth Association, Regional Business council, United Way of St. Louis, Boy Scouts of the Greater St. Louis Area and St. Louis Sports Commission. According to NFL.com, McLoughlin will also fill in for Leiweke to help with Seattle Sounders FC of Major League Soccer, where Leiweke was the CEO.

While the business side of the Seahawks may be focused on a new CEO, those with Seattle Seahawks tickets are more concerned with what is happening on the field. For the Seahawks, they have already had to deal with two injuries within the first two weeks of the season. The first came with right guard Max Unger injured his toe in the season opener against the San Francisco 49ers. The injury landed him on injured reserve and ended his season. Unger was the team’s second-round draft pick from 2009, and he started every game in 2009. Evan Dietrich-Smith was behind Unger in the depth chart, and the Seahawks also resigned guard Mansfield Wrotto to fill his spot on the roster.

The team will also be without linebacker Leroy Hill, but perhaps not for the entire season. Following the Week Two loss to the Denver Broncos, the Seahawks announced that Hills suffered an Achilles’ tendon injury. The Seahawks are staying mum on his possible return, but did say it wouldn’t be anytime soon. Hill was out of the first game of the season against the San Francisco 49ers because of a suspension from the league. Hill has been with the Seahawks since he entered the league in 2005 and has been a starter ever since. In his career, he has tallied 375 tackles, 14.5 sacks, 11 passes defended and six forced fumbles. The team has David Hawthorn and Will Herring to fill in at outside linebacker.

The Seahawks Memorable Seasons

You must have been very excited as the Seattle Seahawks made it to the Super Bowl XL. The Seahawks received their biggest NFL success in 2005 after playing in the NFL title game. Nevertheless, the Seahawks’ legend started three decades ago, from 1976. The Seahawks first hatched into the NFL world, and then played agaisnt the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XL, which makes them unforgettable. To become what they are today, there experienced some specific seasons:

 

1. First NFL season (1976) The Seattle Seahawks did not fly smoothly through their first NFL season. Prior to playing their first game, the Seahawks’ owner, Lloyd W. Nordstrom, died while vacationing in Mexico. The Seahawks then experienced a heartbreaking loss in their first game, falling 30-24, to other NFL birds: the St. Louis Cardinals. The Cardinals had intercepted the Seahawks in the end zone, during the game’s final play. Ultimately, the Seahawks would finish the season with a 2-12 record, defeating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Atlanta Falcons.

 

2. Rookie season of Steve Largent (1979) In 1979, Steve Largent, the only Seahawks Hall of Famer to play his entire career in Seattle, played his rookie season. Ironically, the Seahawks selected Largent in the fourth round of the NFL draft. Largent would play outstandingly for the Seahawks, racking up 819 receptions (a Seahawks record) for over 13,000 yards, and 101 career touchdowns. The NFL selected him for seven Pro Bowls, and chose him for the 1980s All-Decade team. Largent’s jersey number (#80) is the only one that the Seahawks have retired.

 

3. First conference championship game (1983) During the 1983-1984 season, the Seahawks earned a 6-6 record, before soaring back into playoff contention. They ended the season strongly, completing it with a respectable 9-7 record. In the playoffs, Seattle would demolish the Broncos (31-7), and then edge the Dolphins 27-20. The Seahawks then faced the Los Angeles Raiders, in the AFC Championship game. The Raiders took a commanding 20-0 lead by halftime, and eventually defeated the Seahawks, 30-14.

 

4. First Super Bowl appearance (2005) The Seahawks played in their second NFL conference championship, as a member of the NFC. They flew high all season long, ending the regular season with a record of 13-3. The record was a franchise record. Seahawks Shaun Alexander (Running Back) earned the NFL MVP and Offensive Player of the Year awards. In the playoffs, the Seahawks beat the Redskins (20-10), and then tamed the Carolina Panthers (34-14).

 

In the Super Bowl, the Seahawks faced the Pittsburgh Steelers, a powerhouse during the 1970s. Seattle played the Steelers closely in the first half, which ended with the Steelers maintaining a slim 7-3 lead. In the second half, the Steelers would score another two touchdowns, while the Seahawks scored just one. While the game included multiple controversial calls, the Steelers would ultimately win the game, 21-10.

 

Throughout their three decades in the NFL, the Seattle Seahawks’ biggest success has occurred recently. However, their goal remains to fly off with the biggest catch of the NFL: a Super Bowl trophy. Use Seattle Seahawks merchandise to cheer on your favorite birds!

Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl in 2009

Washington residents are proud of their Western Division NFL team – the Seattle Seahawks. While they are a phenomenal team, they are most well known for the entrances, onto the field, during home games. Every home game opens with the entertainment of the team being led onto the field by an Aqur Hawk by the name of Tania.

The Seattle Seahawks have accomplished something that no other NFL team has; they have played in both the NFC and AFC leagues, and have won titles in both. This is one fact all football fans know, and that Seahawk fans are proud to stand by. Seahawk fans are not only proud of their team’s accomplishments in multiple leagues, but of their skill their abilities on the field. Even with a disappointing 4-12 record in 2008, the Seahawks and their fans, look forward to an exceptional season in 2009.

In earlier years, 1972, the Nordstrom family, along with others, were looking into a new NFL franchise, specifically on the West coast. This new franchise would be housed in Seattle, WA and would later be owned by Seattle Professional Football, Inc (in 1974). Finally, two years later in 1976, the Seattle Seahawks stormed the field for the first time ever. This was a proud moment for, not only many investors, but fans too.

Kingdome stadium was the home of many great accomplishments, and is where the fans stood their ground! Seahawk fans were, and still are, known to be the loudest fans in the entire NFL. In fact, during the early years, the New York Giants were forced into 11-false starts, in a single game, all caused by the noise from the stands.

This was the start of a loyal relationship between fan and team. To this day, the Seahawks recognize fans loyalty, and do what they can to involve the fans, and recognize them for standing by their sides.

Many events have taken place around the fans – in their honor the Seahawks would say.

One of the most fascinating tributes, by the team to the fans, was the retirement of the number 12. After retirement, jerseys were printed, with the number 12 on them, along with the word Fan (in place of a player name). This number was retired specifically for the fans, and is still recognized as ceremonial at home games.

In 1988, the Seahawks played in Super Bowl XL, but were unable to win the ring. Since then, the team has brought home many wins. In fact, there have been many title wins since then as well. The Seahawks brought home NFC titles from four years in a row, starting in 2004.

With such a build up to a Super Bowl win, there should be no surprise when the Seahawks bring home that title in 2009. They have had many years to practice, have brought in a new coach for the new season, and plan to wipe the field with every team they play!

Russell Wilson’s Path To Seattle: NFL Draft Day to Seahawks Starting QB

Many prognosticators said Russell Wilson was simply to short. Yet, since midway through his 2012 rookie season no quarterback has performed better, and the only length that hinders him right now is the short distance the Seahawks are from the Super Bowl in New Orleans. Can Russell Wilson really do anything? Well it has been said he has counted to infinity, twice. Enjoy this video outlining the path Seattle Seahawks starting quarterback Russell Wilson has taken in 2012. This captures RW3 and his wife celebrating being picked in Round 3 by the Seahawks all the way through his rookie season at QB. As Jon Gruden points out to Mel Kiper on the video, Russell has defied the odds throughout his college career at NC State, Wisconsin, and was even drafted and played rookie ball for the Colorado Rockies. You can measure the height of a man, but you cannot measure the heart, drive, and willpower to succeed. Video provided by the Seattle Seahawks, ESPN, FOX, and the NFL.
