Jack Patera was named coach of the year in 1978 after leading the Seahawks to their first winning season. Zorn led the AFC in passing yardage that year, and wide receiver Steve Largent notched the first of his eight 1,000-yard seasons. Former Buffalo Bills and Los Angeles Rams head coach Chuck Knox was hired in 1983 to guide the Seahawks. Rookie running back Curt Warner led the AFC in rushing that year, producing the first of his four 1,000-yard seasons with the club

The Seattle Seahawks joined the NFL in 1976 under the financing of Seattle department-store owner John Nordstrom. Seattle Seahawks tickets sold surprisingly well from the first season. In their inaugural year, John Zorn passed for more than 2,500 yards and was named top offensive rookie in the league.

1976 – The Seahawks join the NFL. The nickname Seahawks was the result of a fan contest that drew 20,365 entries and suggested 1,742 different names. Seahawks was suggested by 151 entrants and judged by the team ownership as the best choice.

1977 - In one of the dumbest moves in franchise history the Seahawks trade their top pick in the draft to the Dallas Cowboys for 3 2nd round picks. The Cowboys would use the pick to select RB Tony Dorsett who would have a Hall of Fame career.

1978 - The Seattle Seahawks had their first winning season and Seahawks coach Jack Patera was named coach of the year. Seattle Seahawks tickets are always a great time. Don't wait, order your Seattle Seahawks tickets online today!

1983 - Chuck Knox was hired as the new head coach. Curt Warner led the AFC in rushing that year, producing the first of four 1000 yard seasons with the team. Seattle Seahawks tickets were a hot commodity as they played in their first playoff series. They defeated two opponents before losing to the Los Angeles Raiders (now Oakland Raiders) in the AFC Championship Game. The following year, the Seattle Seahawks had a great year with record ticket sales. Sadly, they were knocked out of the playoff's in the second round.

1988 -The Seahawks won their first division crown.

Throughout the 1990's, the Seahawks had a bevy of all-star players, including Brian Blades, Cortez Kennedy and Chris Warren. From 1990 to 1996, the team suffered five losing records in seven seasons. After a significant roster shake-up in the late 90's, the team returned to the playoff's in 1999. In the years that followed, the Seattle Seahawks have become a team to contend with.

1999 - Seahawks play final year in Kingdomes.

2002 - The Seahawks finally opened their state of the art stadium, moving back to the NFC West where they played their inaugural season in 1976, as part of the NFL's realignment. After dropping their first game on the road the Seahawks would open Seahawks Stadium with a disappointing 24-13 loss to the Arizona Cardinals

2003 - Seahawks Stadium renamed to Qwest Field
