The Seattle Seahawks have an item posted on their site today that recalls some of the more interesting names submitted when the  Emerald City asked its citizens for helping in naming their franchise back in 1975. Can you envision RB Marshawn Lynch bathing in Skittles as announcer Cris Collingsworth screams ‘Lynch just went  beast-mode for the Peckerwoods!?’

Umm…yeah.  You can click here for the complete list, but below are some of our favorites. We know Deion Branch loves to milk cows but it’s even odder to imagine his pride in signing a new deal with the Seattle King Krabs. Shaun Alexander may have flamed out tragically but does the mean that he should have been a member of the Seattle Cockatoos? Matt Hasselbeck as the signal caller for the Seattle Spunkies? The legendary Dave Craig may have requested a trade from the Seattle Roaches on the pure principle of the whole thing. There is no need to connect a player with the Seattle Sperm Whales to know that it’s a horrid, horrid picture.
