Seahawks’ Lynch Named One of the NFL’s Most ‘Unstoppable’ [VIDEO]
Seattle’s “Beast Mode” running back was called one of the National Football League’s most unstoppable players recently by NFL.com analyst Gil Brandt.
Here’s what the former Dallas Cowboys executive had to say about Lynch:
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.
Brandt also named Philadelphia’s LeSean McCoy, Minnesota’s Adrian Peterson, DeMarco Murray of Dallas, and Buffalo’s C.J. Spiller as the league’s unstoppable running backs.
And he tapped the Broncos’ Demaryius Thomas, the Browns’ Josh Gordon, Calvin Johnson of Detroit, Dallas Cowboy Dez Bryant, San Diego’s Keenan Allen, and the Vikings’ Cordarrelle Patterson as unstoppable receivers.
