I can’t believe that Marshawn Lynch’s mamma’s comment regarding the last play in overtime in the Seahawks vs Rams game not only became a big story but was also picked up by the Associated Press and landed in The New York Times. The New York Times. Really?
It is just a squib but a very good squib that sums up this mega non-story. Or is it really a non-story? Sigh. I really don’t know anymore.
Marshawn Lynch’s mother used a post on Facebook to call for the firing of the Seattle Seahawks’ offensive coordinator, Darrell Bevell. Lynch’s mother, Delisa Lynch, posted her comments late Monday after her son was stopped on a fourth-and-1 run in overtime as Seattle lost to St. Louis, 34-31, on Sunday. Delisa Lynch called Bevell the “worst play caller ever” and wrote that the play against the Rams had been called to justify Seattle’s not calling a run from the 1-yard line near the end of the Super Bowl when Russell Wilson’s pass was intercepted by New England’s Malcolm Butler.
I pray that Mr. Lynch has the mental stamina to move right on past this if he can. But he doesn’t have “Mamma’s Boy” tattooed in massive letters across his upper back for nothing.
I am not sure I would have the discipline. Added to that, I despise the behavior of the American media — particularly the NFL media — and this goes right to the heart of the reason why. I feel like acting out myself and it isn’t even my Mamma.
As for those commenting on this story making racial slurs and insulting the way Mrs. Lynch expresses herself, I have a question for you. Why is your neck so red?
In the meantime, after all is said and done, I agree with Mamma.
