Tales of Chuck Knox, 'the most intimidating coach I've ever bee

  • Those who played for Chuck Knox or worked alongside him recall the late Seattle Seahawks coach as someone who would strike fear in their players but may also refer to them, sometimes more than a cold one.

    Like he did one Sunday evening in 1990, in the bar on the Kansas City airport.

    The Seahawks were inside the AFC West for the time, and until a couple of hours earlier, hadn't beaten the rival Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium since 1980. That was three seasons before Knox -- who died recently at age 86 -- found its way to Seattle.

    "Chuck was superstitious," said Steve Raible, a classic Seahawk who spent six seasons while using team as being a wide receiver until retiring in 1982 to become listed on their radio broadcast, "so as we lost along stayed for the Westin Hotel in Kansas City, the following year we'd go ahead and stay with the DoubleTree, and as we lost, the following year we'd use and stay with the Madden Mobile Coins for sale.

    "We had stayed every place even so the YWCA, it was so long since there were won at Kansas City."

    To many, the game is best noted for Derrick Thomas setting an NFL record that still stands with seven sacks. Often forgotten is the place where the Seahawks won it in dramatic fashion when Dave Krieg ducked away from what would have already been an eighth Thomas sack thus hitting Paul Skansi inside end zone for Buy Madden Mobile Coins as time expired, tying the overall game at 16 before Seattle kicked the additional point.
