Marshawn speaks to media, says “I don’t run to get tackled”


Yes, Marshawn Lynch has spoken.

The Seahawks running back, whose $50,000 fine for a season of not talking to the media has been suspended based on his commitment to cooperate going forward, talked to reporters following Seattle’s 23-15 win over the Saints.  Our Curtis Crabtree, who moonlights here while working primarily for KJR radio, says that Lynch answered nine questions.

Said Lynch in response to one of the questions, “I don’t run to get tackled.”

Lynch, who had 140 yards rushing and a pair of touchdowns on Saturday, will be required to pay the original $50,000 and another $50,000 if he once again stiff arms the media.

    Average back who gets a lucky run here and there. Nothing special.

    No Marshawn, you only run from the law when you run over someone in the street and take off.

    Wow, that is profound.

    Another mensa member.

    Really? Out of those nine questions this is the most interesting thing he had to say, or is Florio just trying to be funny again.

  6. escrimz says: Jan 11, 2014 10:54 PM

    This guy is just nasty but in a good way.

  7. seaeagle707 says: Jan 11, 2014 10:54 PM

    For all of his outstanding performance on the field, and for his outstanding work with underprivileged children off of it (especially in the worst neighborhoods of Oakland, Cal.), it wouldn’t bother me if he never had to answer the inane questions that many in the media throw at him.

    Face it, public speaking is just not his thing. But making would be tacklers second guess themselves is. So which of those is more valuable to his team and the NFL at large?

    No way you’re serious. I can’t stand Seattle, but Lynch is pure power.

  9. legionofboom88 says: Jan 11, 2014 10:58 PM

    49ers, how mad are you?

  10. thatwasntsological says: Jan 11, 2014 11:04 PM

    It’s hard to hate this guy. He’s just a flat out beast. Can’t argue that.

  11. hockeyflow33 says: Jan 11, 2014 11:09 PM

    We really are deprived when a player doesn’t reply the standard, company line.

    The guy doesn’t talk and you chastise him, then, when he speaks, you do the same.

  12. southpaw0609 says: Jan 11, 2014 11:10 PM

    And Russell Wilson, standing next to him, said: “And I don’t throw to get interceptions or incomplete passes.”

  13. juiceonfire says: Jan 11, 2014 11:12 PM

    Not mad at all you should of own today and by more than you did. Saints been over rated all year and sucked outside all year

  14. cags777 says: Jan 11, 2014 11:16 PM

    I noticed Lynch was the first player to head to the locker room immediately after the game ended. Great game today, but poor sportsmanship.

  15. brooklyn40niner says: Jan 11, 2014 11:23 PM

    90 % of Seahawks fans don’t even live in Washington state.

  16. granadafan says: Jan 11, 2014 11:45 PM

    Can’t stand the Seahawks due to their delusional and too sensitive fans and cheatey petey, bit Marshawn is a great back who is tough as nails. Love watching beastmode.

  17. MasMacho says: Jan 11, 2014 11:45 PM


    Another troll comment by a delusional hater. Nothing special.

  18. narfmoo12 says: Jan 11, 2014 11:47 PM

    “Ain’t nothing better than solid.”

    Google it if you don’t know that quote from Lynch

  19. sweetnlow44 says: Jan 11, 2014 11:48 PM

    The Seahawks offense would have been nothing without Lynch today. What a beast.

  20. bcweir says: Jan 11, 2014 11:50 PM

    Wow! You can get FINED for not talking to the media? I thought this was a football team! Whose dumb idea was it to penalize your TEAM for not talking to the talking heads?

  21. maraneso says: Jan 12, 2014 12:08 AM

    You RUN to get the YARDS!

  22. operations666 says: Jan 12, 2014 5:48 AM

    Why did the Bills give up on this guy so quickly? A real football player.

  23. bunkerhillbob says: Jan 12, 2014 9:31 AM

    He is one tremendous athlete, that’s for sure.

  24. cometkazie says: Jan 12, 2014 12:35 PM

    Breath of fresh air . . .

  25. socal9ersfan says: Jan 12, 2014 12:37 PM

    49erfaithful here. Marshawn is a beast. Like the seahawks or not. If you think otherwise, your not a football fan. 31 teams if the NFL wish they had Marshawn

  26. djshnooks says: Jan 12, 2014 1:31 PM

    Way to go Buffalo…for a 4th round pick? If Trent Richardson was worth a 1st…Lynch is worth at least two of them.

    Much rather have him than CJ “run out of bounds so you don’t touch me” Spiller.

  27. whidbey77 says: Jan 12, 2014 1:56 PM

    @brooklyn40niner, I assume you are from historic Brooklyn, CA?

  28. jimmyjames65 says: Jan 12, 2014 2:47 PM

    Wow… Skittles really do work.

  29. rublestiltzkin says: Jan 12, 2014 6:57 PM

    Hey buffalo, how’s that vicious combo of spiller and Jackson going for ya? Ya, your move.. .

  30. initialsgbm says: Jan 12, 2014 8:12 PM

    With all the idiocy that comes from some players in the NFL via twitter.

    It’s actually refreshing to see a guy just go and do is job well and have much to say in doing it.

    He shouldn’t fined.

  31. skinsfolife says: Jan 14, 2014 5:45 PM

    What about his DUI case? That’s the longest continuance I have ever heard of.
