It worked! We did it!!

Your efforts paid off!! Dave Krieg was be inducted into the Seahawks Ring of Honor in 2004!!!

You know Dave Krieg's records as well as I do!! You know all about his background from the now-defunct Milton College!! (Do you ever hear the name Milton College without the "Now-Defunct" tag?!?) You know no one ever expected him to have a successful 19 year career in the NFL! You know how exciting it was to see the Krieg to Largent touchdowns, and none of us will ever forget the Krieg to Skansi game-winning TOUCHDOWN in Kansas City!!!! I get goosebumps just thinking about it!!

And now we've enshrined Dave Krieg! We've welcomed him home to Seattle where he'll live in our hearts and minds FOREVER!

Thanks to all of you who clicked on this ballot, printed it off, signed it and sent it to the Seahawks! Thanks for your letters telling me how much you loved Dave Krieg! Thanks for supporting him and for keeping the memories alive!

Now that our job is done, we could always drop the 'hawks a line to say thanks for listening to the fans! Let's make sure that the Seahawks' front office know how much we love and respect Dave Krieg and appreciate this gesture.

Krieg is in the top ten of every important QB statistic...sometimes in the top five! Without him, Steve Largent wouldn't have entered his last two Halls, so to speak!

David Krieg was one of the greats, and deserves to be enshrined in the NFL Hall of Fame! Wake up, Voters!!!!
