I was two years old, so I have to entirely rely on the historical record here... After starting life 2-16 (through '76 and the first month of '77), the Seahawks got things together (on offense at least) to finish a respectable 5-5 over 1977's last 10 games.
Stat weirdness: Steve Largent only had 33 catches in 1977 (the 2nd-lowest total of his career), but had a career-high 19.5 yards per catch. He also scored 10 TDs, a season total he only topped in 1983 and 1984.

The '77s were explosive on offensive, and pathetic on defense. The '82s were their goatee-wearing evil doppelgangers... Led by pro bowler Kenny Easley, the Seattle defense was damn-near dominant in 1982.
After an 0-2 start, the NFLPA went on strike, and seven games were wiped off the schedule. During the strike Coach Patera was shitcanned and replaced by Mike McCormack, who not only coaxed a 4-3 finish out of the '82s, but would go on to hire Chuck Knox after the season and help build the great Seahawks teams of the 1980s.
