“Cinderella” Seahawks of 1983 To Be Recognized This Weekend at Centurylink Field [VIDEO]

The Seattle Seahawks first made the NFL playoffs 30 years ago in 1983. That team will be honored this Sunday at Seattle’s Centurylink Field.

With a new head coach in Chuck Knox, a stingy defense, a great rookie running back in Curt Warner, and a couple of free agent quarterbacks named Zorn and Kreig, the 1983 Seattle Seahawks went 9-7 and into the playoffs as a wild card team. (Yakima physician Dan Doornink was a running back on that team) They advanced to the AFC championship game, where they lost to the eventual Superbowl champs, the Los Angeles Raiders.

Players on that team will be honored at halftime of this week’s game in Seattle. Over 40 members of the 1983 team are expected to attend, and many will be meeting fans and signing autographs in the Centurylink Field Events Center’s Touchdown City before the game.

Here’s a look back at the 1983 Seattle Seahawk’s first playoff season.
