Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor has fond memories playing against Chicago Bears

Steven Bisig-US PRESSWIRE

Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor returns to the place where he got his first big opportunity in the NFL this weekend when Seattle visits the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field.

Before the Seattle Seahawks visited Soldier Field on Oct. 17, 2010, safety Kam Chancellor was just a green rookie who did not see the field that often. But coach Pete Carroll decided to tinker with his lineup in that game, inserting Chancellor into the Seahawks' three-safety "Bandit" package. The Seahawks' 23-20 victory marked the start of something special for Chancellor, who has since become Seattle's starting strong safety.

As the Seahawks get ready to face the Bears this weekend, Chancellor recalls that fateful day in 2010 (via Seahawks.com):

"I had a smaller role back then," he said. "And I was a little more nervous back then, because I wasn't really sure of everything I had to do, all my responsibilities."

Chancellor enjoyed a memorable game when the Seahawks returned to Soldier Field in 2011. The safety notched six tackles and forced one fumble in a 38-14 victory over the Bears in Week 15. That game was part of an excellent 2011 season that saw Chancellor voted as a Pro Bowl alternate. He would ultimately make the NFC squad as an injury replacement.

Chancellor is having another strong year in 2012, as he has racked up 72 tackles (57 solo) and recovered one fumble.
