Memorable playoff moments – Trufant

Published on January 5, 2011 by     T.C.

Marcus Trufant has started seven playoff games since being the Seahawks’ first-round draft choice in 2003 – one as a rookie, one in 2004, three in 2005 and two in 2007 (he was on injured reserve in 2006). Saturday, the veteran cornerback will make it eight when the Seahawks host the New Orleans Saints in a wild-card game at Qwest Field.

Trufant is one of seven remaining players who were on the 2005 team that played in the Super Bowl, and one of 11 still on the 53-man roster from the Seahawks’ last playoff team in 2007.

To help celebrate the team’s return to playoffs after a two-season absence, Seahawks.com asked Trufant for his favorite playoff memory:

“The Carolina game. The (NFC) Championship game (in 2005). I remember how loud and crazy it was. Man, it was just an intense game, in an intense atmosphere. I just remember how loud it was. My ears were ringing hours after the game. It gets louder and louder (at Qwest Field) as you go on in the playoffs. The 12th Man was rocking that day. I had an interception return for a touchdown in the 2007 playoff win over the Redskins, so that’s a pretty good memory, too. But the Carolina game meant so much to us as a team and a franchise. So I’ve got to go with that one.”

The Seahawks won that game 34-14 to advance to the Super Bowl. Shaun Alexander ran for 132 yards and two touchdowns. Matt Hasselbeck completed 20 of 28 passes for 219 yards and two TDs. Middle linebacker Lofa Tatupu, free safety Marquand Manuel and strong safety Michael Boulware intercepted Jake Delhomme passes to pace the defensive effort.
