Seahawks Vs. Broncos

Last season’s 4-12 Seahawks were a disaster, an injury-riddled shell of a team with an outgoing coach. But during the past offseason, the Hawks stocked up on proven free agents (e.g., Cribs star T.J. Houshmandzadeh) and promising rooks (pass rusher Aaron Curry, speed demon Deon Butler). And veteran quarterback Matt Hasselbeck’s back flare-ups are supposedly behind him. So new coach Jim Mora’s team could be back in black on the win/loss ledger. Get your first glimpse tonight as they face the Denver Broncos (7-9 last year) in this preseason home opener. The Hawks have a 18-33 history against the Broncs, and the two teams haven’t played since ’06, when the Mike Holmgren-led squad eked out a 23-20 victory at Mile High Stadium. In other words: They need all the help they can get. DAMON AGNOS
