Marshawn Lynch has “got the whole game plan” down this week

After his first game in 14 months, Marshawn Lynch is even more prepared for his first playoff game in four years.

The Seahawks running back, who unretired last week after the team had a rash of injuries at the position, could see even more action this week.

“He can do everything,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said, via Gregg Bell of The News Tribune. “He’s got the whole game plan.”

Lynch, 33, played 23 of 75 offensive snaps against the 49ers and had 12 carries. He had only four practices leading up to that game.

He now has another week in offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer’s system.

“I thought it would maybe take more of a toll in the first game, but it didn’t,” Carroll said. “So we’re in good shape going in.

“It really does feel different than it was a week ago at this time. We didn’t know what was going to happen, you know? We feel very confident that we’ve got a good mix in our style of runs with our guys. So, it’s a different feeling. More confidence in our guys. We know what we’ve got this time around.”

Carroll said Lynch “took all the reps that he needed to take” this week.

Rookie Travis Homer is expected to start with Lynch spelling him.

  1. But can Pete coach em out of a paper bag during crunch time? Will Russell Wilson be on a knee while they take a delay of game again? Those are more pressing questions-

    LOL

    More one score wins than any team in the NFL

    Too bad so many so ignorant

  3. @realitycheckbaby, you can’t seriously be backing Pete Carroll and his in game degenerative coaching skills? This is why us Seahawk fans get called 2012’s constantly…takes like this

  4. Is lining up on time on 4th down and goal with the game on the line part of this week’s “game plan?”

  5. yeah he comes across as quite the mental wizard. pick him up from the buffet and put him in there

  6. I am definitely NOT a hawks fan but I hope he gets a full head of steam and runs through the Eagles like a wet paper towel, then goes to SF and rips them apart.

  7. This whole thing is pretty comical. Do they really think this guy is going to make a major difference? If so, they’re likely done in the first round and deserve to be.

  8. @realitycheckbaby, you can’t seriously be backing Pete Carroll and his in game degenerative coaching skills? This is why us Seahawk fans get called 2012’s constantly…takes like this>>>

    Another reason is because 2012s like reality check baby talk a lot before games, but then are nowhere to be found after the losses. Sore losers.

    One and done. Just a reality check, baby.

    =========

    Yet second most wins in the NFL since he began coaching with the Hawks.

    This is why so many jealous fans on here insist Hawks are lucky and don’t know what they’re doing,

    I’ll help.

    They’re winning.

  10. Doesn’t matter if he wrote the game plan.
    He looked slow and fat.
    Two things you cannot be when running the ball.

    Man look at all the 49er trolls in the Seahawks thread. You guys must be really worried about having to face them again next week….IF they beat the eagles.

    What a horrible end to the year that would be for you niner fans. The Seahawks beat the Niners and send them packing…again.

    I totally understand why you’re here.

    I mean think about it… the Seahawks lost their top running backs and had to hire Marshawn Lynch off the street… and he comes in to score a touchdown and the Seahawks almost won the game in the last second. Your hearts were in your throats at the end there.

    With all those Seahawks players injured the Niners thought they were going to win by 3 scores.
