The Seattle Seahawks were a prominent team during the 2010s. They won two NFC championships and a Super Bowl, infamously losing another to the New England Patriots on Malcolm Butler‘s last second interception in Super Bowl XLIX. Their roster featured tons of standout players throughout the decade. Let’s take a look at Seattle’s 2010s All-Decade team.
Seattle Seahawks 2010s All-Decade Team: Offense
Quarterback: Russell Wilson
Well, duh. Russell Wilson is more than likely the greatest Seahawk of all time. He is a surefire Hall of Famer and has been an elite quarterback his entire career. He has amassed nearly 30,000 passing yards to go with 227 touchdowns thus far, and he is nowhere near done. His ability to extend the play outside of the pocket is second to perhaps none, and he is well deserving of his spot here.
Running Back: Marshawn Lynch
Beast Mode: The phrase ran rampant in the NFL from 2011-2014. There was nothing more entertaining then watching defenders attempt to arm tackle Marshawn Lynch in his dominant prime. Over those four seasons, Lynch never ran for less than 1200 yards or 11 touchdowns. His 67 yard touchdown run to eliminate the New Orleans Saints in 2010 remains the greatest run of all time.
Wide Receiver: Doug Baldwin
Baldwin was never the physically dominant wide receiver that players such as Calvin Johnson or Julio Jones were, but he was extremely effective. His best season came in 2014, when he caught 78 passes for over 1,000 yards and 14 touchdowns. He was an excellent route runner, and had elite hands. Over his eight seasons in Seattle, he racked up over 6,500 yards and 49 touchdowns.
Wide Receiver: Tyler Lockett
Lockett began his Seattle career as more of a return specialist than pass-catcher. However, in the last two seasons he has flashed some serious receiving chops, amassing over 2,000 yards and 18 touchdowns in that span. He is one of the fastest players in today’s NFL, and a significant deep threat. He has become one of Russell Wilson’s favorite targets, and seems to only improve his play every season.
Wide Receiver: Golden Tate
Tate, like Baldwin, was never physically dominant. He just filled his role in Seattle’s offense perfectly. Tate seemed to always be open and was an underrated contested-ball catcher in Seattle. In four seasons with the Seahawks he picked up over 2,000 yards and 15 touchdowns before moving on to the Detroit Lions.
Tight End: Jimmy Graham
Although while in Seattle, Graham was not the player he was for the New Orleans Saints, he was still quite effective. In three seasons with the Seahawks he scored eight touchdowns and racked up over 2,000 yards. He remains one of the better pass catching tight ends in NFL history, and was an important security blanket for Russell Wilson to rely on.
Tackle: Russell Okung
Okung protected Wilson’s blind side for six seasons. He struggled a bit with injuries, but was very effective when he was on the field. He was named to the Pro Bowl in 2012, a season in which he played 15 games and 90 percent of Seattle’s offensive snaps.
Tackle: Duane Brown
Brown is a Seattle newcomer. The veteran spent much of his career playing for the Houston Texans before Seattle acquired him in 2017. Since the trade he has been a mainstay on the Seahawks offensive line. He earned himself a very solid 74.1 grade from PFF last season, and will look to improve even further in 2020.
Guard: J.R. Sweezy
Sweezy played for Seattle from 2012-2015, and then agin in 2018. He is not an elite NFL guard, but he was a solid piece on Russell Wilson’s offensive line. He’s a very physical player, which is embraced and fits right in with head coach Pete Carroll’s scheme.
Guard: D.J. Fluker
Fluker has played only two seasons in Seattle, but he was quite good when he was on the field. He, like Sweezy is a very physical and powerful guard, and has potential to move up the list of all-time Seahawks offensive linemen.
Center: Max Unger
Unger was an absolute force for Seattle at center. He had back to back Pro Bowl seasons in 2012 and 2013, and was even named as a member of the All-Pro team in 2012. He is one of the best offensive linemen in Seattle history, and was a key element of the Seattle team that decimated the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII.
