Skittles, Dancing on the sideline, and vicious runs through NFL defenders is what most expect with the return of Marshawn Lynch. If you follow the NFL, you know him by another name he has earned through his college days at Cal to his 12-year stint in the league which started with the Buffalo Bills back in 2007, Beast Mode. If you have questions on why this is a big deal for the 12th man faithful of Seattle, just go on YouTube. You will see plenty of proof of why the man is deserving of the respect he commands when he is in the backfield. Even Hall of Famers such as Ray Lewis has been victims of his highlight tapes of the years.
While this is exciting to see across news feeds for the NFL, this is a much-needed boost for the Seattle Seahawks, who over the last 3 weeks have lost two of their starting-caliber running backs to season-ending injuries right as the playoffs are around the corner. This was not a move for fans or a going away tour. This was purely a business move to make sure the team stays in the super bowl hunt.
With dynamic teams such as the Saints and 49ers going into the postseason atop their respective conferences, the Seahawks can not afford to go into the end of the season and playoffs shorthanded. This is the most competitive we have seen the NFC in years and with Marshawn Lynch back in the mix it is sure to be even more exciting. “We have unfinished business,” said Lynch when he was asked by ESPN on why he chose to come back. As you can see, this man has one goal in mind when it comes to what’s ahead for him. A Super Bowl. The Seattle Seahawks (11-4) face the San Francisco 49ers (12-3) on NBC, December 29th, 8:20 PM.
