Name game: What should we call the Hawks’ great escape in the NFC Championship?

In the aftermath of Sunday’s remarkable rally by the Seahawks in the NFC Championship Game, local and national media, Seahawks players and fans everywhere have been tossing around names to capture the meaning and magnitude of the improbable events that transpired in the dying moments at CenturyLink Field.

A few that come to mind include: “The Miracle at CenturyLink”, “The Great Hawk Heist”, “Hawk & Awe”, and “Comeback at the Clink.”

Now it’s time to try to settle on one. In Seattle sports history, we already have “The Double” (Edgar Martinez’s game-winning hit in the Mariners’ 1995 ALDS Game 5 win over the Yankees), “The Tip” (Richard Sherman’s tipped pass in the end zone that Malcolm Smith intercepted and sealed Seattle’s win over the 49ers in the 2014 NFC title game) and the “All I Saw was Purple Game” (UW football beats Todd Marinovich and No. 5 USC 31-0 at Husky Stadium in 1990).

We asked fans to submit their suggestions and we put together the poll below to come up with one that will make the hair on the back of your neck stand up every time you think about it or when it rolls off your tongue.
