Marshawn Lynch's Playoff Clinching Run Registered a Minor Earthquake
SB Nation ^ | Jan 9, 2011 | Jeff Collier

Posted on 01/10/2011 8:07:18 AM PST by ipa2tf

Talk about Beast Mode ... According to the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network, a blip in the seismograph came at the exact same moment that Seahawk Running back Marshawn Lynch was rumblin', bumblin', and stumblin' into the the endzone from 67 yards out, making at least seven New Orleans Saints whiff on their tackle attempts. King 5 News posted a picture of the seismography on their Facebook page:

Best NFL touchdown run of all time, in my opinion.

Left me speechless. Stunning. Good thing, btw, that the psychotic dog-torturer is out of the playoffs.

I think the Saints will be spending a lot of time in the off season shoring up their Defense and practicing how to tackle.

Yeah, and the first play of the game he was slammed to the turf. I believe in rehabilitation but this guy >knew< it was wrong but did it anyway. He should have spent his jail time working in an animal rescue center all day/all week for whatever his jail time was. Take his meals with them as well.

I am waiting for accusations of greasing his game pants as directed by Sarah Palin (as we know, the Seahawks are Alaska's pro team too).

No other details yet, but curious to see if there is a depth associated with this recording.

Among the greatest runs ever.

But I really feel awful for the poor people of New Orleans. So cruel, in the wake of Katrina, for them to have to suffer again.

((snicker))

As good a football run as you’re likely to see. Reminded me of Gale Sayers.

I’m a Saints fan, too. But I also went to Cal. And all I could see as Marshawn running down the field was “well eff me runnin’....”

I don’t know why my Spidey Sense is telling me the Hawks are going to shock the world. But it feels a lot like the Cardinals’ run a few years ago when nobody gave them a chance.

Of course, getting Hasselback healthy is a huge factor. But I’m just not that impressed with the other NFC playoff teams, and Seattle should play looser than any other team.

Yep, one of the best I have seen in 45 years of watching football, of course Earl Campbell would have run OVER them instead of pushing or running around, but I digress.

I saw the Saints panicking and going for the strip rather than just tackling Lynch.

The only way that can happen is if the Packers are the other team - the Seahawks have the worst record of the division winners, so if they play any other division winner, they are teh visiting team.

I was 4/4 with the wildcards.

I’m taking B’more, J-E-T-S, the ‘Hawks and the Pack. 4 dogs.

Hometeams could be 1-7, with the only win being the ‘Hawks. Home teams are incredibly weak this year.

One of the greatest runs in history!
One of the greatest upsets in history!

I live near Seattle, so I was watching the game, and hootin and hollerin along with everybody else. But what impressed me the most was that the defense was so pumped, that they didn’t end up blowing it in the end.

I’m not stupid enough to bet against them in Chicago. But I think it’s gonna take at least some luck. Maybe alot of luck. They beat Chicago there earlier in the year, and Da Bears are gonna be growlin!!

My Prediction: Seattle hosts the NFC Championship Game.

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

I'm thinking the same thing as bizarre as this year's postseason has started out:

My take is SEATTLE-GREEN BAY.

(1) At 7-9, Seattle lived up to this Anagram:

I discovered years ago using the same letters SEATTLE SEAHAWKS
can be converted to WEAK ASS ATHLETES; but

(2) NFL Record: First team to win division with losing record; and

(3) NFL Record: Seattle was a 10-point underdog. The 10-point spread made the Seahawks the biggest home underdogs in NFL playoff history.

(4) Week later another NFL Record: First team with losing record to win a postseason game.

Seattle soundly beat the defending Super Bowl champs.

(5) Seattle was the ONLY home team to win last week.

Both Seattle and Green Bay near the end of their respective game's had an 11-point lead and both won by 5 points after their opponents scored a TD and both failed a 2-point try.

Even stranger somebody pointed out Seattle would have to win the Super Bowl to end the season with a winning record!
