5. Darrell Jackson
Darrell Jackson was the guy who caught the touchdown pass in the first quarter of the 2005-season Super Bowl only to have it called off because of an atrocious pass interference call by referee Bill Leavy. Leavy was the same referee who basically stole the game from the Seahawks and admitted as much later when things didn’t matter.
The shame is that Jackson’s time in Seattle is overshadowed a bit by what a third-party took from him and his team. Jackson should have been a Super Bowl champion. Instead, he will have to be remembered as simply one of the best receivers in Seattle history.
Jackson was a third-round choice in 2000 and, like Engram, helped build the foundation for one of the best offenses in franchise lore. He made an immediate impact as a rookie catching 53 passes for 713 yards and 6 touchdowns. In three of his first five years, Jackson had 1,081 yards receiving or more.
He currently still ranks pretty high all-time for Seattle. His 6,445 yards receiving are fourth, his 441 catches his sixth, and he is third with 49 touchdown catches. Now if he only had the Super Bowl ring that he should have.
