Seahawks fans came out in droves on Saturday in San Diego.
It was family day here at the VMAC as the Seahawks had their last practice of the week before heading to San Diego tomorrow for a preaseon matchup against the Chargers on Saturday.
1984 – The Seahawks win their season opener for the first time, 33-0 over the Browns at the Kingdome. But Curt Warner is lost of the season in the first half with a knee injury. The game is played on Monday afternoon because of a scheduling conflict with the Mariners, but still attracts a crowd of 59,540. Dave Krieg passes for three touchdowns, while safeties Kenny Easley and John Harris intercept Paul McDonald passes and Jacob Green (three) and Joe Nash (two) combine for five sacks to pace the shutout.
1995 – The Seahawks lose their first game under coach Dennis Erickson, 34-10 to the Chiefs at the Kingdome. All-time sack leader Jacob Green is inducted into the team’s Ring of Honor.
2000 – The Seahawks drop their opener to the Dolphins in Miami 23-0, the first time they’ve been shutout in seven seasons.
