As if the Seattle Seahawks didn’t embarrassed the San Francisco 49ers enough on Sunday Night Football. In what was the most watched west coast game in years, the 49ers best player and arguably the most feared defender the NFL was pushed to the ground like a red-headed step child by Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch.
Patrick Willis went in for a tackle on Lynch after he had already evaded one 49ers defender. Marshawn used the same move he had in his legendary “Beastmode” run against the New Orleans Saints’ Tracy Porter in the 2010 NFC Wild Card game. Lynch stiff-armed Willis to the ground as if he was a pesky kid irritating him.
The Seahawks and their fans were as hyped for the game as is humanly possible. A great rivalry, the seasons home opener, a world record attempt, two coaches that absolutely hate each other and a matchup of the two teams that have recently owned the NFC West.
Next up for the Seahawks are the Jacksonville Jaguars (0-2) who come into CenturyLink with new Head Coach Gus Bradley. Bradley was the Seahawks defensive coordinator last season and has already signed a few of Seattle’s defensive cuts from earlier this season.
If you didn’t get enough Beastmode then here is his other great stiff-arm.
