Marshawn Lynch -- "I'm here so I won't get fined"

Recommended Posts

This has disaster written all over it however...I would love to see Lynch do one of those crazy runs where he breaks like 4 tackles and the play feels like it will never end. But the reality is he hasn't seen any action since October 2018...

Lynch 2012 Awesome

Lynch 2020 Not Awesome

I'll put the over under at bout 40 yds total this week vs San Fran who isn't exactly playing their best.

Had no idea anyone felt this way about Lynch. Sounds miserable. 

The flip flopping multiple times is annoying.

What do you have against flip flops? they're pretty comfy and easy to don/doff

It’s annoying? How does it affect you in any way whatsoever?

What kind of projection do you give Travis Homer, MoP? Decent pass catching RB, like Ameer last night? Plus he'll get 8-10 carries I bet for another 50 yards. If the dude scores then he's a solid Flex. Everyone high on Beast Mode, what about Homer?

Yeah, count me as totally glued to Sunday Night Football to watch this one play out. I can't imagine he's lost it badly enough to be worse than Robert Turbin which means he'll likely get touches. What he does with them is another deal. We're going to see a newsworthy reunion at the very least. Carroll/Lynch/Wilson/Wagner holding over from the SB, of which there should have been two. One last run without so many key cogs that they're a completely different team, but the core up the gut will have adumbrations of an older story.

I have questionale objectivity as a lifelong Seahawk fan but the story is absolutely awesome.  Cheapest single game seats available on the secondary market are about $400 right now.  Some of that is Lynch's return.

10 carries and 30 to 40 yards is on the realistic end.  I doubt he starts and Seattle is a hot mess with injuries.  San Francisco should win this game.  But if a banged up team with Lynch making a play or two wins the game?  It's going to be fun.

Either way,   Seattle doesn't necessarily have a motherload of borderline hall of famers in football, basketball, or baseball.  The feeling of getting Beast Mode back for at least one more game has been pretty great.

I don't really care who wins the game but I would love to see acou pile of violent 10 yard runs from Beast.

This is exactly right. The season is pretty much shot with these injuries all happening right at the end of the season. Bad luck.

The move is a million times better than bringing in some other random retread. Lynch coming back is a great, great story and is for the fans and the writers. 

Him giving significant contributions on the field is a huge long shot.

I like Homer, former UM Tailback, he was decent with a lousy OL down here in Coral Gables...what Miami OL has been drafted and is flourishing in the NFL right now in say the last 5 years. Miami used to send Tackles into the NFL like an assembly line but not now, maybe never again. 

I could see him getting 10-15 touches, Lynch is not in game shape right now.

NFL network projects Lynch to get 10-15 carries tonight. Granted it's a stout rush D in SF. Can't ya just see Carroll calling Lynch's number near the goal line? You gotta wonder if that one play they chose to throw the ball and not hand off to Beast Mode weighs in his mind? Can't ya just see Carroll giving his whewwwwwwwwwwwww fist pump? Or does he fizzle? No one seems to know.

Outside of a couple of goal line carries he has been very ineffective running the ball

Against two of the top DVOA Rush Defenses in the NFL this year, he went 12-34 and a TD and then 6 for 7 for a TD, with 32 total yards.

Tough sledding, to say the least.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Marshawn Lynch is "ready to handle more of a workload" following Seattle's Wild Card win over the Eagles.

Lynch has clearly lacked explosiveness in rushing for 18/41/2 and 2.27 yards per carry since re-joining Seattle. Even so, Carroll implies he'll get the 33-year-old bruiser involved more over rookie Travis Homer, who has out-snapped the veteran 94 to 41 in the team's last two games. Lynch has two-touchdown upside worth chasing in short DFS slates but hasn't shown the downhill quickness to suggest he can eclipse the 100-yard mark. Expect Homer to be involved in the passing game while Lynch sticks as their de facto goal line runner.

Beast moded the hawks to round 2.  A couple of teams sitting at home this weekend settled for FGs.  

In just here to win Super Bowl MVP.

Marshawn Lynch rushed 12 times for 26 yards and two touchdowns in the Seahawks' Divisional round loss to the Packers.

It was obviously tough sledding on the ground for the 33-year-old, though he did essentially fall into the end zone a couple times for a pair of one-yard scores. Coach Pete Carroll said Lynch would get more work in this one, and he was featured early before the game started to get out of hand for Seattle, and the coaches had to let Russell Wilson work his second-half magic. Lynch came out of retirement in Week 17 and rushed for a combined 30-67-4 line across three games. He doesn't have much left in the tank, but it was fun to see Beast Mode in action again. Lynch is likely done for good this time, as he'll turn 34 in April and spent 14 months on the street before the Seahawks got desperate last month.

Take care of y'all chickens

Probably seen the last of Marshawn in the League.

One of my favorite players, favorite personalities in the NFL. See you when you get put up in the Seahawks ring of honor.

What a cool bonus it was to have him back for a couple more touchdowns.
