I mean, realistically, probably had like 15 cases.”
Marshawn Lynch's Beast Mode: one of the best running backs of the last decade
The biggest debate of the past decade has been whether or not the Seahawks should have given the ball to Lynch at the one-yard line in Super Bowl XLIX.
When he was traded from the Buffalo Bills to the Seattle Seahawks, his impact was immense. Despite the team's quarterback instability at the time, Lynch's performances earned him four consecutive Pro Bowl nominations and a First Team All-Pro nomination in 2011.
After his early retirement and his comeback to play with the Raiders in his homecoming, the running back still had some good production, with a good 4.3 yards-per-carry average over two years in Oakland.
Marshawn Lynch's career was defined by his hard-hitting style of play, off-field charisma, and memorable moments. His Beast Mode running and unique personality made him a fan favorite and left a lasting impact on the game of football.
