I’m not going to lie, Nike did it again. That’s some pretty sweet stuff right there. Marshawn Lynch has created a monster with this Skittles thing. I really hope this doesn’t start a trend of athletes popping candy on the sidelines trying to get seen. We really don’t need to see Cam Newton eating Nerds on the sidelines. Let’s just leave it with Marshawn and his Skittles.
Thanks to our homies TerezOwens for the picture.

After some of the top sports blogs in the whole damn world revealed that following every touchdown Marshawn Lynch eats Skittles as a celebratory snack, the folks over at Nike decided to capitalize on the news, creating a special pair of cleats for Lynch.

After each week of the regular season and possibly during the NFL playoffs should the Seattle Seahawks be so lucky Dave B will stop by and bring you his Seahawks game balls. Balls are awarded to the Seahawks offensive MVP yet again running back Marshawn Lynch, and on defense this week DB Kam Chancellor.
Wide receiver Ben Obomanu suffered a sprained knee during Saturday's game against San Francisco, and running back Marshawn Lynch had a sore ankle, according to coach Pete Carroll. The status for both won't be known until later this week, though. Seattle's coach held a press conference Monday, and indicated that the availability of Lynch and Obomanu won't be known...
Jason Green weighs in with five reasons the Seattle Seahawks managed to find a way to come up just short vs the 49ers on Christmas Eve. A 19-17 loss to the 49ers was a tough and bitter pill to swallow. As Detroit defeated San Diego as well on Saturday all but slamming the door on the Seahawks 2011/12 playoff chances. Marshawn Lynch, Frank Gore and rookie RB Kendall Hunter all had...
That's right, the rest of the league seems to have finally realized that Earl Thomas is pretty great. He'll be headed to Hawaii as the starting free safety for the NFC team, and according to John Boyle of the Everett Herald, he may not be the only Seahawk in attendance:

Second Alternate: RB Marshawn...
