During NBC’s starting lineup rip, Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is quick to let it be known that he is from, “Oakland Ice City California,” and during Saturday’s Wild Card game against the defending Super Bowl champion Saints, he got super duper hyphy with a ridiculous 67-yard touchdown run late in the 4th quarter that sealed the win.
Lynch is known for rolling with the “Beast Mode” phenomenon, with the words diamond-encrusted across his gold grill, and during the run he took the opportunity to beast several Saints defenders, including a stiff arm to cornerback Tracey Porter that made him look like a Pit Bull, if it happened to try and battle a Tiger.
The run is already being called one of the greatest in NFL Playoff history, as the Seahawks became the first team with a losing record to not only make the playoffs, but actually win a game as well. I’m sure Seahawks fans are hoping for a little of that same magic that the Cardinals got a few years back, when they reached the Super Bowl after sneaking into the playoffs with an 8-8 record.
Lynch has taken full advantage of the 2nd chance that the Seahawks have given him, and has experienced a rebirth as has made his way back to a respectable running back.
