On this date: Gross joins Ring of Honor

A look at some memorable moments in Seahawks history that occurred on Nov. 30:

Pete Gross and Steve Raible

1987: Dave Krieg passes for two touchdowns, but in between the Raiders reel off 37 unanswered points in a 37-14 victory on “Monday Night Football” at the Kingdome.

1992: On a memorable Monday night in a forgettable season, longtime radio announcer Pete Gross is inducted into the team’s Ring of Honor – two days before losing his battle with cancer – and Stan Gelbaugh throws a 3-yard touchdown pass to Brian Blades on the last play in regulation to tie the game at the Kingdome. John Kasay then wins it with a 32-yard field goal in overtime, for the second victory in a 2-14 season.

1997: Warren Moon passes for 240 yards and two touchdowns, but the Falcons return a kickoff 93 yards for a score in taking a 24-17 victory in Seattle.

2003: Matt Hasselbeck passes for 328 yards and three touchdowns, Shaun Alexander runs for 127 yards and a score, Darrell Jackson and Koren Robinson combine for 14 catches and 224 yards and the defense holds the Browns to 214 yards in a 34-7 victory in Seattle.

Zorn to Largent: One more time

NFL Films is celebrating Jim Zorn’s 59th birthday by re-running an interview it did with the Seahawks’ first quarterback and his favorite target: Hall of Fame wide receiver Steve Largent.

In addition to the interview that was done when Zorn was a coach with the Redskins, the feature also has some vintage Zorn-to-Largent footage, complete with the radio calls by the late Pete Gross.

What else do these three have in common? Each is a member of the team’s 10-man Ring of Honor. Largent was the first inductee (in 1989), Zorn was the second (in 1991) and Gross the fourth (in 1992).
