Monday Round-Up: Marshawn Lynch named one of NFL's 11 most-unstoppable players

Posted Jun 23, 2014

A morning link round-up of what's "out there" about your Seattle Seahawks

Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Monday, June 23 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

Marshawn Lynch Among League's 11 Unstoppable Players

Gil Brandt of NFL.com names Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch to his list of the League's 11 most unstoppable players. In addition to Lynch, Brandt calls out Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, Philadelphia Eagles' running back LeSean McCoy, Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray, and Buffalo Bills running back C.J. Spiller as standouts in the position group.

On Lynch, Brandt writes, "Lynch burst out of the gate last season, rumbling for 871 of his 1,257 yards in the first 10 weeks, but he seemed to slow down as the year wore on. His yards per carry also took a dip, dropping from 5.0 in 2012 to 4.2 in 2013. Still, Lynch tied for the league lead in broken tackles with 18 -- in addition to making tacklers miss 38 times -- proving he remains one of the toughest running backs to stop. In other words, Beast Mode most definitely lives."

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Kasey Kahne, a native of Enumclaw, Wash., are co-hosting The DRIVE this morning at CenturyLink Field - a public healthy lifestyle pep rally benefiting Boys & Girls Clubs of King County.

Doug Baldwin Talks 'Game of Thrones'

Tweet of the Day

Today's "Tweet of the Day" comes from Seahawks linebacker Mike Morgan, who is in Brazil supporting the U.S. Men's National Team in World Cup 2014 with fellow linebackers Malcolm Smith and K.J.
