Franco was a Seahawk?
 
As a relatively new Steelers fan (midway 2003 season), I was unaware of this. Take a look at this pic!

Franco Harris
Seattle Seahawks, 1984

After spending 12 years in Pittsburgh, Franco's army marched to the great Northwest for eight games with the Seahawks. Harris averaged just 2.5 yards per carry with Seattle.

he had a talk with Bettis when he was thinking about taking a paycut and urged him to just take the cut becuase Franco wished he would have.

That was a sad day indeed.. seeing Franco in a seahack uniform made every steeler fan just cringe... Thank goodness he was there to talk to Bettis to...

In classic Franco style, at his HOF induction, that I attended, his first words were" I`m Back"

It came alittle close several years ago after the pro bowl and his contract was up. He says he always wanted to be a STeeler and retire in the black n gold.. but those other offers had to be enticing alittle. Thank GOD he stayed.

Now lets get the Hines deal done, so we don`t have to worry about that too.

One reason Franco Harris did so poorly as a Seahawk is because as you all know the Steelers are an inside running team. At the time that Franco went to The Hawks they were an outside running team, and Franco was there to replace a back name Warner who I think retired because of injury. And Warner was a faster smaller back that fit their offense. They just hired Franco to fill the seats.
