I'm really excited because this season is going to be a big one and I have a feeling that we're going to go all the way said Nikki Jones, first fan in line to get on the shuttle bus.

2013 is the season and I'm just so excited that we get to be a part of it said Andrea Shaw, Seahawks fan.

Fans lined the berm along the practice field Thursday to watch the team take the field the first time for the 2013 season.

Players reported Wednesday for a team meeting and physicals.

The Seahawks' preseason opener comes August 8 against the San Diego Chargers. Their preseason home opener will be against the Denver Broncos on August 17 at 7 p.m.

During the September 15th home-opener against the San Fransisco 49ers, fans hope to officially earn the title of loudest stadium.

Officials for the Guiness Book of World Records will be on hand to see if the 12th Man can capture the record 'loudest crowd roar at a sport stadium', which is currently held by a soccer club in Turkey.

Expectations are high going into this season for a team that many consider one of the top teams in the NFL.
