Here's The Worst Thing Written About Marshawn Lynch This Week

Well, it's official: Sportswriters getting huffy about Marshawn Lynch not wanting to talk to the press is officially the worst thing about this particular Super Bowl week. Just check out CBS New York's Jason Keidel's column ("From 'Beast Mode' To 'Least Mode,' Mute Marshawn A Shame") for a prize exemplar. Somehow, the… » 1/31/14 3:11pm 1/31/14 3:11pm

Football Writers Are Furious With Marshawn Lynch

Marshawn Lynch hates talking to the media. Hates it. He's skipped enough appearances this season that the NFL threatened him with a six-figure fine if he didn't speak at yesterday's Media Day. Lynch took the podium for just six unconstructive minutes, before retreating behind the scenes. Now the Pro Football Writers… » 1/29/14 9:38am 1/29/14 9:38am

Marshawn Lynch's Media Day Interview Was Short And Sweet

Marshawn Lynch is known for being a bit reclusive and wary of speaking to the media, but Deion Sanders was able to corner him for a few minutes of screen time on NFL Network today. Things got off to a good start; Lynch just replied, "smooth" when Sanders asked him how he was feeling. "You look good," Sanders… » 1/28/14 2:13pm 1/28/14 2:13pm

Hey, It's Three Years (And A Day) Since Marshawn Lynch Went Beast Mode

Dr. James Andrews For Head Coach: Seahawks-Redskins, In Five GIFs

Seattle 24, Washington 14: It's fair to debate Mike Shanahan's decision to keep a hobbled Robert Griffin III in the game today: For much of the first half, it looked like a gamble in the process of paying off, and Griffin has been so stellar for so much of this year that it's hard to imagine Kirk Cousins taking over… » 1/06/13 8:12pm 1/06/13 8:12pm

Marshawn Lynch's Skittles Sneakers Give Him Superpowers

Before Saturday, no one had rushed for 100 yards against the 49ers defense, and no one had run for a touchdown against the 49ers defense. Before Saturday, nobody had worn Skittles sneakers against the 49ers defense. Correlation is not necessarily causation, but this time it totally was, say scienticians. » 12/26/11 12:55pm 12/26/11 12:55pm

Marshawn Lynch Likes Skittles, Eats Skittles, Gets Free Skittles

After Beast Mode went Beast Mode on the Eagles' sieve of a d-line, he retreated to his bench to taste the rainbow. This is nothing new for Lynch, whose sweet tooth grill goes back to his Bills days. His mother still buys him a pack before every game, and he talks about Skittles in the huddle. » 12/02/11 2:35pm 12/02/11 2:35pm
