Tuesday Round-Up: The Top 5 Greatest Stiff Arms of All-Time

A daily link round-up of what's "out there" about the Seattle Seahawks.


Good afternoon, 12s. 

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Tuesday, March 22 - about your Seattle Seahawks: 

Top 5 Greatest Stiff Arms of All-Time

The NFL shared a YouTube video on Monday showing the five greatest stiff arms of all-time, and as you might imagine, "Beast Mode" running back Marshawn Lynch made an appearance on the League's countdown. The full video can be found right here, with a quick recap of each of the NFL's Top 5 stiff arms of all-time outlined for you below. 

5. Marion Barber: The New England Patriots had Barber pushed back into his own end zone before the Dallas Cowboys running back used a series of stiff arms to get himself out of trouble and up the sideline to avoid a safety.

4. Willis McGahee:The Baltimore Ravens running back is seen using a stiff arm against the Oakland Raiders at midfield to spring loose for a 77-yard touchdown. 

3. Adrian Peterson: The Minnesota Vikings running back stops on a dime near the sideline and delivers a stiff arm to a Cleveland Browns defender before accelerating up field for a 65-yard score.

2. Garrison Hearst: The 49ers running back took an overtime carry 96 yards for the game-winning score against the Jets in 1998, dismantling a New York defender at the San Francisco 20-yard-line to help power him to pay dirt.

1. Marshawn Lynch: It shouldn't come as too much of a surprise to see Lynch's 67-yard "Beast Quake" run for a touchdown featured at the front of this list. The Seattle running back sent Saints cornerback Tracy Porter tumbling to the ground midway through the play with what he would later describe as “a little baby stiff arm.” The score helped Seattle seal a 2010 wild-card playoff win over New Orleans at CenturyLink Field. It would stand as the most memorable run of Lynch's nine-year career

Reporting from the NFL Annual Meeting in Boca Raton, Fla., Bob Condotta at the Seattle Times says the Cleveland Browns have no plans to trade left tackle Joe Thomas to the Seahawks, or any other NFL club. discusses the Seahawks options at left tackle going forward with longtime starter Russell Okung signing with the Denver Broncos in free agency and the station talks with NFL draft analyst Mike Mayock about potential draft targets for Seattle's secondary.

And Gil Brandt at lists 10 of the most underrated prospects in the 2016 NFL Draft, one of which happens to be Washington State Cougars offensive lineman Joe Dahl, who Brandt says will be a second-round pick: [Joe Dahl] is one of my favorites in this draft. I like players who transfer up (think J.J. Watt); Dahl spent his freshman year at Montana before transferring to Wazzu, where he was a three-year starter at left guard and left tackle. He could play multiple positions at the next level, including center, but I think guard is his best position. He's strong (28 bench reps). Some team will draft him in the second round; others will wish they had.
