Semifinalists were selected from an original list of 103 nominees announced back in September that included former Seahawks in quarterback Dave Krieg, running backs Shaun Alexander, Chris Warren, and Ricky Watters, offensive lineman Ray Donaldson, punter Jeff Feagles, and coach Mike Holmgren, all of whom did not make the cut this time around.
