2007marks the 32nd NFL season for the Seattle Seahawks, with a first-ever Super Bowl appearance in 2006 (Super Bowl XL) to build upon. September 12, 1976 marked the first-ever regulation game for the Seahawks, then a member of the NFC West in that inaugural year, with a cast of players for the city of Seattle to get to know and soon embrace. And while players and coaches have come and gone over the years, fan support has always remained a common thread. So much so that, on December 15, 1984, the Seahawks retired the number 12 in honor of their fans, the 12th Man. Today a Ring of Honor and a distinguished roster of alumni are reminders of all the many names, faces, and contributors that have graced the Seahawks organization. All outstanding in their own way.
