The Seahawks are young and brash. Their quarterback, Russell Wilson, is a rookie who played with composure beyond his years. Their coach, Pete Carroll, is an older coach with inexplicable youthful energy and their star cornerback, Richard Sherman, got punched in the face during the playoffs by an opponent who found him annoying.
The biggest Seahawks star might be the fan base, the 12th Man. Microsoft co-founder, Paul Allen, is the team owner and he designed the field to be the NFL’s loudest and the fans don’t disappoint. At the begininning of each game an honorary flag bearer raises the flag and whips the crowd into a frenzy. They stay that way to distract opposing teams.
