Seahawks Chris Spencers most Memorable playoff moment

Published on January 10, 2011 by     Seahawk Fanatic

As a first-round draft choice in 2005, center Chris Spencer was there for the Seahawks’ run to the Super Bowl in his rookie season and started the team’s playoff games in 2006 and 2007.

He is, in fact, one of only seven players still on the 53-man roster from that ’05 team – joining quarterback Matt Hasselbeck, cornerbacks Marcus Trufant and Jordan Babineaux, right tackle Sean Locklear, defensive tackle Craig Terrill and middle linebacker Lofa Tatupu.

So Spencer has seen a lot from his spot in the middle of the line. But he has never seen anything like Marshawn Lynch’s electrifying, tackle-defying, 67-yard touchdown run that iced Saturday’s wild 41-36 wild-card playoff win over the defending Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints at Qwest Field.

To help celebrate the Seahawks’ return to the postseason after a two-year absence, Seahawks.com asked Spencer for his favorite playoff memory. Spencer broke into a large grin before offering:

“That ‘17 Power’ we called and to watch Marshawn do what he did. That’s my favorite. I blocked back on the nose (tackle), another lineman looped over the top because they assumed correctly – they guess right – that we were going to the left. All of sudden, I see Marshawn skate back to the backside. I looked up and saw the safety and just tried to get a piece of him, and Marshawn did the rest.

“Once I hit the safety, Marshawn skated off my back. He then dragged somebody for a couple of yards. Then he stiff-armed that guy to the ground. At the last minute, I see Hasselbeck running down, and I’m running down. I see (guard Tyler) Polumbus out front. It was unbelievable.

“Marshawn had enough for a first down (on the second-and-10 play). He just piled through it. It was unbelievable; definitely the best run I’ve ever been a part of – here, college, high school, pee-wee league. It was unbelievable. Just unbelievable.”

It also was a run that helped carry the Seahawks into Sunday’s divisional playoff game against the Bears in Chicago.
