Re-Live Seahawks' Glory: 2003 Seahawks

"We want the ball and we're going to score!"

**Facepalm**

Ok, now that I got that out of the way, the Seahawks' 2003 season was a very good season, overall. The Hawks went 10-6, qualified for the Playoffs (the Rams won the division that season), went out to Green Bay and just fell short in OT in the Wild Card Playoff Game. Really, no way you can call that a failure.

The Mike Holmgren powerhouse offense was beginning to take shape as the Hawks finished 7th in the NFL in offense and their defense wasn't far behind. Matt Hasselbeck threw for 26 touchdowns, Shaun Alexander ran for 14, and Darryl Jackson caught 9.

Also, importantly, the Hawks began a great tradition of home-field dominance in 2003 by going 8-0 at home. Mike Holmgren took the Seahawks to the playoffs in his first season. He then went three straight seasons without getting back. His fourth season, 2003, was the beginning of a 4-year stretch where the Hawks dominated the NFC West and included a trip to Super Bowl XL. If you're wondering why I tell you this, it's because I'm alluding to the idea that rebuilds take time and Pete Carroll and John Schneider's stewardship of the team will be no exception. I'd like to see the return to dominance in less than 3 or 4 years, but it's not easy.

Anyway, check out the highlight video of the season below. As usual, sorry for the commercials. And sorry if you don't live in the United States, because then you can't watch this.
