Embarrassing Moments in Seahawks Special Teams History

1976: Pet Rock deployed as punt returner (with predictable results)

1981: Jimmy Carter hired as Special Teams Coach, malaise and a 6-10 record ensues.

1990: In key late-season game, Seahawks fall for the old "ball hidden under a dude's shirt" trick.

1992: In a misguided attempt to motivate the kick coverage team for an October home game, players are given copies of R.E.M.'s "Automatic for the People." Most abandon thier cars on I-5 for some reason and miss the game entirely.

1998: Dallas defeats the Hawks at Texas Stadium after punt coverage team is distracted by the Cowboys' "shiny, shiny helmets."

2000: Jeff Feagles votes for Pat Buchanan by mistake.

2002: Placekicker and punter both perish imitating a stunt they saw on Jackass.
