The Seattle Seahawks play the Carolina Panthers in Week 3 of the 2023 season. Seattle is 1-1 while Carolina is 0-2. The Panthers will also be playing with backup quarterback Andy Dalton instead of starter Bryce Young. Dalton does have a 4-1 record all-time against Seattle, though.
This will be somewhat of a special weekend for the Seahawks. They will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of winning the Super Bowl at the end of the 2013 season. (More on that in just a second.) The team will be wearing white and navy uniforms in honor of that.
Seattle is a bit banged-up going into the game, but so are the Panthers. The team that wins might be the one that deals with attrition better. Let's hope that's Seattle, of course.
Seattle Seahawks celebrate their Super Bowl victory on Sunday
Hard as it may be to believe, 10 seasons have passed since the Seattle Seahawks defeated the Denver Broncos to win the franchise's only Super Bowl. Yes, we all know that Seattle should have won the following year too, but that didn't happen and so here we are. But this weekend Seattle will celebrate the Super Bowl victory by inviting the team back (except for Bobby Wagner as he currently plays for the team, of course) for a big to-do.
A lot of the guys might show up at the Seahawks walk-through ahead of Week 3 versus the Carolina Panthers. Several of the players who played for Seattle in the Super Bowl that finished the 2013 season still live in the Seattle area, and many still come to help the newer guys in camp. Richard Sherman and Cliff Avril have been involved in some minor coaching in training camp the last couple of years.
Doug Baldwin also still lives in the Seattle area and is extremely active in philanthropy work. Baldwin also has visited the Seahawks and spoken to players. But none of this would have happened had it not been for head coach Pete Carroll who coached the Seahawks in Super Bowl 48 and still coaches the team. Some coaches might simply turn the proverbial page when a player leaves, but Carroll is a very loyal guy who also knows young players can learn from Seahawks legends.
