Flight of the Seahawks free pdf A Pulitzer Prize-nominated author and award-winning sports columnist provides an insider account of the unconventional construction of a dominant NFL franchise When coach Pete Carroll arrived in Seattle in 2010, the Seahawks were a nondescript franchise desperate for a new direction. Five years later, the team has become a model franchise with an unprecedented approach to roster construction, producing both the youngest group ever to win a Super Bowl and the most outspoken and entertaining team in American professional sports. "Flight of the Seahawks" is an inside look at how a motley crew of overlooked and maligned athletes defied convention to form the biggest, baddest, brashest team to hit the NFL in years. Author Jerry Brewer, who covered the Seahawks entire rise as a "Seattle Times" sports columnist, tells the complete story of this transformation, with exclusive access and insight from Carroll, general manager John Schneider, stars Richard Sherman, Russell Wilson, Earl Thomas, Marshawn Lynch, and the rest of the unforgettable characters who helped the Seahawks turn an eccentric approach into a dominant era. From preferring abnormally tall cornerbacks to breaking the mold by selecting a quarterback considered too short for the NFL, the Seahawks have thrived with an unconventional style and opened a window for prolonged success. Spawning the infamous Legion of Boom and unleashing the at once quirky and ferocious Beast Mode, the Seahawks have morphed from forgettable franchise to the definitive team of this era in the NFL. "Flight of the Seahawks" is the ultimate account of a franchise with a fitting aspiration for its oddball methods: create a modern-day dynasty in a league legislated for parity while having a blast in the process."
