Marshawn Lynch, the running back for the Seattle Seahawks may seem quiet, but his actions speak louder than words. He is mysterious, perplexing, and, most importantly, a damn good football player.
His antics date back to his days at The University Of California, Berkeley, carrying over to his days with the Buffalo Bills with a 12th pick in the 2007 NFL Draft, and finally, continuing on to the Seattle Seahawks in 2010.
SBNation has posted an article titled, “The Marshawn Lynch Encyclopedia” which has the most extensive and entertaining compilation of the mysterious history of Marshawn “Beast Mode” Lynch.
His greatest go-to interview responses are: “Thanks for asking. I appreciate it”, “I’m blessed”, “I’m only here so I don’t get fined, boss. You know why I’m here”, or even “thank you”. All of these were repeated for the entire duration of the interview.
The enigma that is beast mode doesn't live by others rules but lives by his own. After all, he gets paid to run the football. Isn't that enough?
