We’ve asked you to “make the call” on a quartet of topics recently, so it’s time to check-in on how you’ve voted.
Asked to name the best single-season performance in Seahawks history, 346 of the 692 votes cast went to the obvious choice: Shaun Alexander’s efforts in 2005, when he became the only player in franchise history to be voted league MVP after leading the NFL in rushing and scoring a then-league record 28 touchdowns. Walter Jones’ continued dominance from his left tackle position in 2006 is a distant second with 106 votes.
Next up was the best game by a quarterback in club history. Warren Moon’s 409-yard, five-touchdown performance against the Raiders at the Kingdome in 1997 prompted the poll. But Moon is way behind Matt Hasselbeck’s four-TD showing in January’s stunning upset of the New Orleans Saints in a wild-card playoff game at Qwest Field. Hasselbeck has 239 of the 475 votes, compared to 75 for Moon.
A story on linebacker Chad Brown being voted to the 35th Anniversary team led to a poll to determine the best free-agent signing in franchise history. Brown is close, but trails wide receiver Bobby Engram by four, 206-202. Center Robbie Tobeck is third, with 120 of the 891 votes.
Today, the poll asked which of the eight “classes” that produced multiple members on the 35th Anniversary team was the best. Only 75 votes have been cast so far, with 29 going to the 1997 trio of Jones, Brown and Shawn Springs – one more than that 2001 “class” of Hasselbeck, Steve Hutchinson and Engram.
