No QB has won more games in their early career than Wilson, and he already has two Super Bowl appearances and a Lombardi Trophy on his resume. But it’s his leadership and community involvement that has endeared him to fans. His ability to run caused the Seahawks to tailor their offense to his abilities, and now in his 4th year he continues to get better. Could end up on the very top of this list even before his career is over.

21: S Eugene Robinson (1985 – 95)

Picked off 42 passes as a Seahawk and made 3 Pro Bowls.

20: LB Keith Butler (1978 – 87)

Often overlooked in the team’s history. Career Seahawk, he started 132 of 146 games at middle linebacker. Current Defensive Coordinator for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

19: RB Marshawn Lynch (2011 – present)

It’s not so much the productivity, but the attitude that Lynch brought with him from Buffalo that has helped transform the Seahawks and shape the edge they play with. Since being acquired, he’s never had fewer than 1200 yards or 11 TD’s in Seattle. His physical running style and yards after contract are special.

18: QB Dave Krieg (1980 – 91)

Signed as an undrafted free agent out of Milton College (a school that doesn’t even exist anymore) Krieg was the long shot of all long shots. 26,000 yards, 195 TD passes, 3 Pro Bowls, and a trip to the AFC Championship Game later, his place on this list is well deserved.
