Lynch will surely find his name in the Seahawks Ring of Honor sometime down the road and will possibly also garner consideration to be enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Most importantly however he will forever be remembered as the face of the Seahawks tough, physical identity which made up the first half-decade of the Pete Carroll era, an era which has produced 3 NFC West championships, a pair of NFC titles, and a Super Bowl world championship in 2013.
Lynch posted a picture of his well-known lime green cleats hanging from a wire; an ocular way of telling everyone he has decided to “hang it up.” The tweet also included a peace sign emoji.
Over the last five and a half seasons Lynch produced one of the most successful stretches among any Seahawks running back in franchise history, rushing for 7,284 yards and 66 touchdowns.
I believe this game is a perfect fit for Sunday Night Football. Los Angeles Rams Get ready for a “lemon and lime” color rush game if this prediction becomes reality.This season with the Rams having relocated to the west coast, this is the perfect opportunity to feature a fierce up-and-coming rivalry.This game is good for the Thursday Night spotlight for two main reasons.Over the last few seasons the NFL has reserved the grand majority of Thursday Night Football games for division rivalries.Seattle has only hosted TNF twice since it came into existence in 2006, and most recently in 2011.Secondly, this matchup gives the NFL another opportunity to feature the Los Angeles market in primetime, something that I believe will be a common occurrence in 2016.Away at New England Patriots This seems like a no-brainer doesn’t it?Away at Arizona Cardinals Much like how the Seattle/San Francisco rivalry was the marquee rivalry in the NFC West from 2012-2014, the Seattle/Arizona rivalry has now topped it.It is certain one of our dates with the Arizona Cardinals will be in primetime. In 2014, our matchup with the Cardinals in Arizona was scheduled for Sunday Night Football.The Marshawn Lynch era has produced some amazing and hilarious moments both on and off the field.As a tribute to Marshawn Lynch, here are 10 great moments I have pulled from the archives featuring the one and only Beast Mode.
