Found October 26, 2011 on 12th Man Rising:
Marshawn Lynch lays beneath a pile of defenders. It’s one of the drawbacks of fighting so hard for extra yards. The extra time allows more defenders to come over and add to the pile. Lynch doesn’t mind though. He takes pride in getting every possible inch. He smiles a bit as the last defender finally moves and allows him to get up, and he turns to rejoin his teammates in the huddle.He makes eye contact with John Moffitt. The rookie guard had been key on the last play. He pealed off the double team on the DT just in time to block the MLB as well. Lynch think “man, the kid’s really starting to get it,” but he doesn’t say anything. He just gives Moffitt a nod and then turns his attention to Tarvaris Jackson to get the next play.As the team breaks the huddle, Lynch glances at the play clock; 21 seconds left, plenty of time. Looks over the defense going through the reads one by one in his head. “The LBs are shifted to the weak side, away from where’s the play calls for him to run. Good. ...

Marshawn Lynch doesn't care about your fantasy team

This seems particularly appropriate given the volume of questions I've received this week regarding Marshawn Lynch's health. There is a formula for these questions that betrays them as Fantasy Football oriented. First, is the gratuitous compliment about my coverage. It's something like this, "Love your blog," and it's coming from someone in Amarillo, Texas...

Seahawks in Desperate Need of a Back-up Running Back

Seahawks blogger Brett points out running backs get hurt and miss games due to injury. A back-up needs to be able to step into the game in place of the starter. The Seahawks need to fill the backup running back position if they want to be able to run the ball without Marshawn Lynch in the line up. Justin Forsett and Leon Washington aren't cutting it.

Quick hitters from Carroll …

On the injury front, Tarvaris Jackson, Zach Miller, Marshawn Lynch and Max Unger all participated in Wednesday morning walkthroughs. Carroll made it sound as if all of them had good chances of getting back by game time. “We’ll work to bring him back,” he said of Jackson. And of Lynch: “I think he’s gonna be fine for this game.” Charlie Whitehurst also will get work at...

RENTON -- Running back Marshawn Lynch is returning to practice, and expected to be available for Sunday's game against Cincinnati. Quarterback Tarvaris Jackson will resume practicing with the first-unit offense, too, but his status will be more limited. Same for tight end Zach Miller and center Max Unger.

Fantasy football: A week full of bad moves, worse losses

Last week was one of those weeks I wished I'd never discovered the NFL. I lost in all three of my leagues. But I didn't "just" lose. In the league I run, my mockery of a season continued as my bye week running back pickups, Seattle's Marshawn Lynch and Denver's ...

Jackson, Miller, Lynch, Unger limited for Seahawks

Morning links: Hawks have no rhythm on offense

I wrote in my story today about the Seattle Seahawks offense coughing and sputtering on Sunday against Cleveland. Plenty of that had to do with the offense missing four starters. But besides Tarvaris Jackson being out, the most critical element missing in my opinion was Marshawn Lynch. The Seahawks do not have another physical runner like Lynch on the roster, something head coach...
