Craig Terrill has blocked eight field goals in his seven-year career with the Seahawks to tie the franchise record. The versatile defensive tackle also has played in six postseason games. No. 7 will come on Saturday, when the Seahawks host the defending Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints in a wild-card playoff game at Qwest Field.
Terrill is one of seven players remaining on the active roster from the 2005 team that went to the Super Bowl, and one of 11 left from the Seahawks’ last playoff appearance in 2007.
To help celebrate the Seahawks’ return to the postseason after a two-year absence, Seahawks.com asked Terrill for his favorite playoff memory:
“It would probably have to be the NFC Championship game (in 2005). Having Carolina and knowing that we had home-field advantage with them having to come to us, and just everything that was involved with that game – knowing that we would go to the Super Bowl if we won that game.
“We had a cool buzz about the team that week, just knowing what we were on the brink of. Obviously it went well and the crowd was just incredible. The post-game celebration with the confetti falling and being presented with the NFC Championship trophy and just knowing we were going to the Super Bowl, it was pretty cool.”
“I’ll always have my (championship) ring and the memories of that day and being the best in the NFC.”
The Seahawks were all of that, and more, because they beat the Panthers 34-14.
