On this date: Green inducted into Ring of Honor

A look at some memorable moments in Seahawks’ history that occurred on Sept. 3:

Defensive end Jacob Green, the Seahawks’ all-time sack leader with 97.5 (unofficially 116.0, as sacks did not become an official stat until 1982), becomes the second Seahawks defensive player to be inducted into the Ring of Honor.

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.

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.
