On Thursday at work Greg from our fantasy football challenge asked me who my Top 10 all-time Seattle Seahawks where. It took me a couple of days to compile a list, but here are my Top 10 all-time Seahawks.

#1 Steve Largent, He is the Seahawks leader in career receptions with 819, yards with 13,089 and receiving touchdowns with 100. He played 200 games in a Seahawks uniform over 14 seasons was a 7 time Pro Bowler and was voted in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1995.

#2 Walter Jones, He was Seattle’s 1st round draft pick in 1997; 6th overall. He played He played in 180 games over 12 seasons starting all of them. Jones was a 9 time Pro Bowl selection and made the All-Pro team on 4 occasions. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2014.

#3 Cortez Kennedy, in 11 seasons with the Seahawks, Kennedy was selected to the Pro Bowl 8 times and made 3 All-Pro teams. In 2012 he was voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He made 568 tackles, assisted on 100 tackles with 58 sacks and added 3 interceptions.

#4 Jim Zorn, I have to admit that Zorn is my favorite Seattle player and I may have higher on this list than most people would, but it’s my list. In 9 years with Seattle Zorn made 100 starts, playing in 126 games total for Seattle. He’s 3rd all time in passing yards with 20,122 yards, 3rd in passing touchdowns with 107 and 3rd in completions with 1593. He also had 1491 career rushing yards with 17 touchdowns.

#5 Dave Brown, he played defensive back for 11 seasons with Seattle and is the career leader in interceptions with 50 scoring 5 touchdowns. He played in and started 159 games for Seattle. He was voted into the Pro Bowl just 1 time; in 1984 when he had 8 interceptions and returned 2 of them for touchdowns.

#6 Shaun Alexander, he’s the all time leading rusher in Seahawks history with 9429 yards. He scored 100 rushing touchdowns and added 12 receiving touchdowns. He was a 3 time Pro-Bowl selection and made the All-Pro team 1 time. In 2005 he led the National Football League in rushing with 1880 yards and 27 touchdowns. He spent 8 season with Seattle playing in 119 games starting 96 of them. He was Seattle’s 1st round pick in 2000; #19 overall.

#7 Dave Krieg, he’s the all time leader in passing touchdowns with 195. He played 12 seasons with Seattle getting into 129 games making 119 starts. He threw for 26,132 career yards with Seattle. He made the Pro-Bowl 3 times and also rushed for 1090 yards and 10 touchdowns.

#8 Kenny Easley, he was Seattle’s 1st round draft pick in 1981 and 4th overall. He made the Pro Bowl 5 times and 3 All-Pro teams in his 7 year career. Shortened by injury he played 89 career games making 87 starts. He has 32 career interceptions returning 3 for touchdowns and led the league with 10 interceptions in 1984.

#9 Matt Hasselback, he’s the career leader in passing yards with 29,434, completions with 2559 and is 2nd in passing touchdowns with 174. He spent 10 seasons with the Seahawks appearing in 138 games, starting 131. He added 1129 rushing yards and 8 touchdowns with Seattle. On a side note he was still active in 2014 as the Indianapolis Colts back up.

#10 Curt Warner, I know when people hear that name they think of the quarterback, but this Warner is the 3rd leading rusher in Seahawks history with 6705 yards. Chris Warren has 1 more rushing yard than Warner. He made 3 Pro-Bowl teams and put up 4, 1000 yards rushing seasons in 7 years with Seattle. His 55 rushing touchdowns puts him 2nd all time; right now as Marshawn Lynch has 54 rushing touchdowns coming into 2015.

Well there it is and I know there are some current players left out. Lynch was very close to making my list. Players like Russell Wilson and Richard Sherman should have quite a few years left to play and should make this list when they’re done playing. I did leave off the all time leading scorer in Seahawks history; Norm Johnson. Do you think he should be on this list and is there anyone you think I might’ve missed.

So May 2nd 2015 is the date that it will finally happen. Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao will finally meet in the ring. It’s being reported that the fight may make upwards of $400 million and will cost fans $90 to watch on pay per view. Now if they could’ve agreed on this fight two or three years ago I’d be a lot more excited about it. I’m convinced that Mayweather only agreed to the fight because he’s now convinced that he’ll win. Mayweather is 47-0 and staying undefeated is important to him; he’ll also turn 38 in 3 days while Pacquiao will be 36 when the fight happens. Pacquiao is 57-5-2 coming into this fight. In November of 2014 Pacquiao beat  Chris Algieri by unanimous decision. Mayweather’s last fight was also a unanimous decision victory over  Marcos Maidana in September of 2014. I’m sure this fight will make a ton of money for everyone involved, but I have a feeling it’s going to be a disappointment when we finally get to see these two in the ring together.

So the NBA trade deadline was Thursday and 11 teams dealt 37 players between them. Did your favorite team make a move to improve themselves for the playoffs or are the headed into the draft lottery. I thought that the Miami Heat had made a good move getting what was considered the top player who would be traded in Goran Dragic. it was actually a three team deal with the New Orleans Pelicans involved; here’s what it officially was. Miami got Goran Dragic and Zoran Dragic from Phoenix for Justin Hamilton, Danny Granger and first-round draft picks in 2017 and 2021. Traded Norris Cole, Shawne Williams and Justin Hamilton to New Orleans for John Salmons. Now that it’s being reported that Chris Bosh may miss the rest of the season because of a medical issue you wonder if the Heat would’ve made this trade had they known. The Suns also dealt one of their other point guards as Isaiah Thomas went to the Boston Celtics for a 2016 1st round pick and Marcus Thornton. I’ve heard a lot of experts say that they like what the Oklahoma City Thunder did at the deadline. The Thunder added D.J. Augustin, Enes Kanter, Kyle Singler and Steve Novak. I was a little surprised to see Kevin Garnett being dealt back to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Thaddeus Young. Garnett does bring veteran leadership and an expiring contract, but he doesn’t seem to have a whole lot left on the basketball court. I thought that maybe this was his farewell tour, but it’s being reported that Garnett would like to continue to play next season. Now we have to wait and see how these players affect their new teams and if they’ll be able to contribute in the playoffs.
