On this date: Seahawks snap 21-season drought without a playoff victory

Posted Jan 14, 2014

A look at some memorable moments in Seahawks history that occurred on Jan. 14

2006: The Seahawks win their first playoff game since 1984 with a 20-10 victory over the Redskins in a 2005 divisional-round game in Seattle. After league MVP and NFL rushing champion Shaun Alexander goes out in the first quarter with a concussion, Matt Hasselbeck passes and runs for another, while Darrell Jackson catches nine passes for 143 yards.

1999: New head coach Mike Holmgren hires eight assistants from his staff with the Packers to join him with Seahawks: Mike Sherman, offensive coordinator/tight ends; Fritz Shurmur, defensive coordinator; Tom Lovat, offensive line; Larry Brooks, defensive line; Nolan Cromwell, wide receivers; Jim Lind, linebackers; Ken Flajole, defensive backs; and Kent Johnson, strength and conditioning.

2005: Bob Whitsitt is relieved of his duties as president of football operations.

2007: Robbie Gould kicks a 41-yard field goal to tie the game with 4½ minutes remaining in regulation and then hits a 49-yarder in overtime to give the Bears a 27-24 victory over the Seahawks in a 2006 divisional playoff game at Soldier Field. Shaun Alexander runs for 108 yards and two touchdowns, but is stopped for a 2-yard loss on a fourth-and-1 play from the Bears’ 44-yard line with two minutes left in regulation.
