Video: Seahawks Marshawn Lynch runs hard, speaks softly

With a little Monday afternoon lull, I thought I’d point out again Jerry Brewer’s column on Marshawn Lynch, whose early touchdown run helped set the tone for a 30-24 win.

Lymch got some help from teammates Garry Gilliam and J.R. Sweezy, but he also simply refused to go down on a day when according to Pro Football Focus, he forced four missed tackles, tied for the most in the NFL (though yes, it sort of seemed like more than that).

Lynch now has 31 missed tackles on 132 attempts this season, which according to PFF is third in the NFL behind DeMarco Murray’s 47 and Arian Foster’s 34.

Each of those players, however, has a lot more attempts than Lynch — Murray has 225 and Foster 161.

If you go by percentage of runs on which he is credited with a missed tackle, then Lynch is second in the NFL at 23.4 behind only the 23.8 of Chris Ivory of the New York Jets (26 in 109 attempts) of running backs with more than 100 attempts.

As passed along here last night, Lynch talked to the media after the game for the first time this season (video below). Lynch knows he is subject to fines of as much as $50,000 if he doesn’t talk, and might have been spurred to action by some apparent complaints from national media following the game at Carolina last Sunday.

As is his custom, he didn’t say a lot. But here it is:
