2005: Free safety Ken Hamlin suffers season-ending head injuries during an altercation outside a Seattle club following the team’s 42-10 victory over the Texans. With Hamlin out, Marquand Manuel steps in to start the final 11 regular-season games and finishes third on the team in tackles during the Seahawks’ Super Bowl run. Manuel is now the team’s assistant special teams coach.
