On this date: Warner goes for 60 on first NFL carry

A look at some memorable moments in Seahawks’ history that occurred on Sept. 4:

Running back Curt Warner, pictured here in a game against the Los Angeles Raiders his rookie year, spent seven seasons (1983-89) with the Seahawks, and held every franchise rushing record when he was done.

1983 – Curt Warner, the team’s first-round draft choice, breaks a 60-yard run on his first NFL carry in an opening-day loss to the Chiefs in Kansas City. Warner would finish his rookie season with 1,449 rushing yards – then the franchise single-season record – and score 14 touchdowns.

1988 – The Seahawks open their 13th season with a 21-14 win over the two-time defending AFC champion Broncos in Denver. Curt Warner scores two touchdowns and John L. Williams has 161 yards rushing and receiving.

1994 – The Seahawks win their first season opener since 1988, as Chris Warren runs for 100 yards and two touchdowns in a 28-7 win over the Redskins in Washington. The win gives coach Tom Flores his 100th victory as a head coach in the NFL.
