This is the latest installment of our "State of the Seahawks" series. Click here to view the state of the quarterback position.
Last year the Seahawks running attack was the vocal point of the offense, spearheaded by the pro bowl tandem of Marshawn Lynch and Michael Robinson. But then Marshawn had a little too much beast mode for one night.
On July 17, Lynch got charged with driving under the influence after he was arrested near his hometown of Oakland. His court date is set for August 14, conveniently right in the middle of training camp.
What’s really concerning is the fact that Lynch has gotten in trouble with the law before, which includes a suspicion of sexual assault, a hit and run incident, and a misdemeanor gun charge. Add this recent DUI to the list and NFL commissioner Rodger Goodell might have no choice but to slap a 4 to 6 game suspension on Marshawn.
OK, so let’s say Lynch is suspended for the first 6 games of the season. Who would take his spot as lead rusher?no comments
