After a myriad of injuries in the backfield to the Seahawks they have found what they hope to be a reasonable replacement, even if only temporarily (signed until the end of this year only). Marshawn has been brought in after Rashaad Penny suffered a season-ending torn ACL in Week 14. Week 16 brought more bad news when Chris Carson suffered a season-ending fractured hip and C.J. Prosise broke his arm. Marshawn is well known in the NFL but is basically considered a god in Seattle, the city that coined him with the moniker “Beast Mode”. It is easy to see why – Lynch rushed for 1,457 yards and 57 touchdowns across 82 regular-season games for the Seahawks from 2010 to ’15. He led the league in rushing touchdowns in 2013 and ’14 with 12 and 13, respectively. Head coach Pete Carroll told reporters he will have “no hesitation” about using the 33-year-old running back against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night. “I’m as excited as the fans are,” Carroll added. Sunday night’s meeting with the 12-3 Niners is going to be a massive game for the 11-4 Seahawks and the winner will clinch the NFC West. See odd lines here for Sundays matchup:
