Week 21: at New England Patriots

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Marshawn Lynch had less impact than usual during the Divisional Round of the playoffs, managing 14/59/0 rushing and 3/6/0 receiving. Russell Wilson (7/22/0) and Robert Turbin (7/19/0) helped push the Seattle team total to 28/100/0 rushing vs. the Panthers. During the OT Conference Championship victory, Lynch was once again the Lynchpin to the offense on a day when Wilson was, frankly, terrible as a passer - Lynch posted a dominant 25/157/1 rushing (with 1/26/0 receiving) and helped carry the Seahawks into the OT period, scoring a desperately-needed TD at 1:25 left in the fourth quarter (a 24-yard run) to put the Seahawks into their first lead of the game. Wilson posted 7/25/1 rushing and also notched a late-fourth-quarter TD rush (at 2:09 left in the period). All told, the Seahawks compiled 35/194/2 rushing as a team two weeks ago. NEw England finished regular season ranked ninth in the NFL averaging 104.3 rushing yards allowed per game, with a mere six rushing scores given up (tied for second-least in the NFL during 2014). Against the Ravens during the Divisional Round, the Patriots allowed 28/136/0 to Justin Forsett and company - the rush D made a better showing vs. Indianapolis two weeks ago, holding Robert Herron, Zurlon Tipton and Andrew Luck to 19/83/1 rushing during the AFC Conference Championship (a 45-7 win for the Patriots). This is a tough matchup for Lynch and company.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 19 vs CAR (7 / 19 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Turbin played his usual change of pace role, but had no big breakthroughs, nor did he catch a pass.

2014 Week 20 vs GB (2 / 8 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / -2 / 0 rec)

With the Seahawks in a serious bind, trailing for virtually the entire game, they abandoned their typical balanced rushing attack in favour of feeding Lynch the ball. The result for Turbin was a measly two carries.

Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch retirement still possible (Thu Feb 19, 12:57 PM) - Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch continues to ponder if he'll return for another season, and general manager John Schneider said he wouldn't be surprised if Lynch chose to retire. Schneider also said he's confident RBs Robert Turbin and Christine Michael could carry the load if Lynch doesn't return in 2015.

Our View: Given how little Lynch likes the non-football trappings of his job, it wouldn't and shouldn't shock anyone if he walks away. He's made plenty of money, is in relative good health and won't have to deal with the media anymore. While we have thought Turbin/Michael could be a good alternative, we haven't seen enough to be sure. Don't be surprised if the Seahawks pick up a running back early in the draft, perhaps Melvin Gordon who would be a good fit replacing Lynch.
