Best Seattle Seahawks to ever wear the No. 1-10
The Seattle Seahawks have had a lot of great players in its 45-year history so we thought why not decide the best Seahawk to wear each number, beginning with numbers 1-10.
No. 1 -- QB Warren Moon
Moon spent two seasons in the Pacific Northwest from 1997-98, leading Seattle to back-to-back 8-8 seasons, making one Pro Bowl and being named MVP of the Pro Bowl in 1997.
No. 2 -- K Todd Peterson
Peterson spent four seasons as a Seattle Seahawk from 1995-1999. He never missed a PAT as a member of the Seahawks and successfully kicked 126 field goals for Seattle.
No. 3 -- QB Russell Wilson
What is there to say about Russell Wilson that hasn't already been said?
He's pretty clearly the best player in franchise history to wear the number three. He's arguably the best player in franchise history since he gave Seattle its lone Super Bowl victory.
Heck, our Seahawks Insider Joe Fann wrote earlier this year that Wilson's the most iconic athlete in Seattle sports history.
With his career only about halfway over, Wilson has already set the franchise record for wins, passing yards, yards per attempt, passing touchdowns and passer rating.
No. 4 -- K Steven Hauschka
Hauschka spent six seasons in Seattle from 2011-2016 including winning a Super Bowl in 2013 and was a Pro Bowl alternate in 2016.
No. 5 -- P Ruben Rodriguez
The options are No. 5 are sparse to say the least, so punter Ruben Rodriguez gets the nod here after playing for Seattle from 1987-89, including playing in all 16 games from 1988-89.
No. 6 -- QB Charlie Whitehurst
The options at No. 6 are fairly slim, so yes, a Seattle quarterback that went 1-3 as the starter may just be the best No. 6 in franchise history.
That one victory? A Week 17 victory over a Sam Bradford-led St. Louis Rams team to win the NFC West with a 7-9 record.
What happened the next week when Matt Hasselbeck returned? The Beast Quake.
No. 7 -- QB Jon Kitna
Kitna spent the beginning of his career with the Seahawks (1996-2000), including starting 15 games during 1999 that saw Seattle go 9-7 and win the AFC West.
No. 8 -- QB Matt Hasselbeck
Until Russell Wilson, Hasselbeck was the only Seahawk to ever start in a Super Bowl.
Additionally, the Seattle Seahawks of the mid-2000s were FUN and that's thanks to having a competent signal-caller under center.
Until Russell Wilson broke the Seahawks all-time passing record last season, it belonged to No. 8 who has 29,434 all-time passing yards for Seattle.
No. 9 -- K Norm Johnson
Johnson spent nine seasons in Seattle from 1982-1990 which included a Pro Bowl appearance and All-Pro selection in 1984. That season, Johnson made 50/51 extra points and 20/24 field goals with a long of 50 yards.
No. 10 -- QB Jim Zorn
Having spent nine seasons in Seattle (1976-1984), Zorn became one of the best players in franchise history to line up under center. With 20,122 passing yards, he's the fourth-all-time leading passer in Seattle Seahawks history. In 1978, Zorn was named a Second-Team All-Pro after leading the Seahawks to the league's third-best offense.
In 1991, Zorn became the second player to be inducted into the Seahawks Ring of Honor.
