  1. That was great! he really does not like to interview Ha Ha.great answers though.

    Marshawn just did the Jim Harbaugh to the media lol

  3. RDPoulsbo says:

    Sounds like the media spoke to Lynch, not the other way around.

  4. MikeFromNewJersey says:

    Hahaha that was either MarShawn Lynch or the coach of the Patriots.

  5. montanamike2 says:

    He seems genuinely upset over the pro bowl snub imo.

    Man you just gotta love Marshawn. You can really sees how much he hates being the center of attention in that interview setting. He is so quiet spoken that you wonder where does that Beast Mode come from? But get him on the field and the guy just performs.

    I personally think he is one of the top two or three backs in the legue, but just because of his running. He is a COMPLETE player. He can run. He can get the tough yards. But he can also catch. And he can also block. And he reads a defense as well as any QB. He knows where the blitz is coming from and he stands guys up when blocking for RW. The guy is just such an accomplished player.

    I hope he is pissed about the All Pro thing because it will only motivate him to make the other team pay for it. I honestly think I’d like to see us win the SB this season more for Marshawn than anyone else.

    errr… meant to say “…but NOT just because of his running.”

  8. tealskin says:

    It’s painful to watch. This must be Marshawn’s least favorite thing to be doing. Wonder how he was convinced to even go through with it.

  9. RDPoulsbo says:

    Apparently, the league threatened to fine him unless he made himself available to the media during the playoffs. We might get one of these per game just so he can keep stiff arming Goodell.

  10. Kudos to Marshawn for standing up and taking questions. It seems obvious to me that he is painfully shy in these situations. He is not at all comfortable taking rapid fire questions from the media. He is clearly concerned about not saying something that could be misconstrued. It doesn’t seem to me to involve any arrogance or disrespect on his part. This is not in his comfort zone. He does his speaking by his play on the field. Good job, Marshawn.

  11. RDPoulsbo says:

    I completely understand why he hates talking to the media. Thankfully for his sake, the local media aren’t a bunch of jackals like in other media markets.

    I am concerned though that should Seattle make it to the big dance, the Hawks could be without him on the field. Before he can play he’ll have to endure the biggest piece of crap the NFL calls a tradition: Media Day. I wouldn’t blame him one bit if he was arrested for assaulting some of those idiots that call themselves reporters for the questions they ask.

  12. Southendzone says:

    Does every player have to do media day? What if he produces a diagnosis from a dr saying he has fear of crowds?

  13. Skavage says:

    If we are fortunate enough to make it to the SB, I doubt media day will be an issue for Marshawn. They sit multiple players down in Directors chairs in a long row. Once the national guys get two or three of Marshawn’s short, direct answers, they will move on looking for stories (aka controversial comments) elsewhere.

  14. seatowntp says:

    It certainly does appear that Beast experiences anxiety when placed in those specific conditions. He certainly didn’t linger waiting for reporters to advance additional questions.

    Mike from NJ, that is hilarious! While watching the presser, I, too, was thinking that Beast was doing his Belichick impression. Although, Beast was providing far more elaborate responses.
