On this date: Jordan Babineaux turns in ‘the play’

A look at some memorable moments in Seahawks history that occurred on Jan. 6:

Jordan Babineaux

1992: Tom Flores, who had been the team’s president and general manager, is named president and head coach to replace Chuck Knox. Flores would go 14-34 in three seasons before being replaced by Dennis Erickson.

2002: Trent Dilfer, starting for an injured Matt Hasselbeck, throws two touchdown passes to Darrell Jackson as the Seahawks close their 2001 season with a 21-18 victory over the Chiefs at Husky Stadium. Shaun Alexander also scores on a 44-yard run in the third quarter, as Dilfer runs his record as the starter in ’01 to 4-0 and extends his consecutive victory streak to 15 after quarterbacking the Ravens to a Super Bowl in the 2000 season.

2007: Jordan Babineaux turns in the play that readers of Seahawks.com would vote the play of the decade as he pulls down Tony Romo short of the goal line and a first down after the Cowboys’ holder/QB drops the snap on a game-winning field-goal attempt with 1:14 left in the Seahawks’ 21-20 victory in a Wild Card playoff game in Seattle. Matt Hasselbeck’s second TD pass to Jerramy Stevens with 4½ minutes left in the game gives the Seahawks their one-point lead.
