The article reports that an early injury moved the team Seattle Seahawks safety Etric Pruitt from the sideline to the field for Super Bowl 40 and left the secondary without its leader. Seneca Wallace was repeatedly intercepted when he was the quarterback of the Seahawks' scout team during practices for the Super Bowl. Marquand Manuel's absence meant the Seahawks lost a player who didn't make many mistakes and helped prevent others from making them.
