"Beast Quake" revisited

I have a few brief comments on this long article about Marshawn Lynch's epic run to close out the Saints three years ago:

  1. Nice of ESPN to notice something west of the Appalachians.
    • Three years late, though…news travels slow across this Great Continent.
  2. It's great they're calling Saints players and asking them to re-live the memory.
    • "I cannot let that play die down," said former Saints safety Darren Sharper, who is now an analyst for the NFL Network and still gets teased about the play. "It just keeps coming back -- Beast Mode -- like a thorn in my side. Like a bad rash that keeps coming back…  I got an arm on [Lynch], but it wasn't enough. Then he proceeded to throw everybody in our secondary out of the way."
  3. In retrospect, that play really was the birth of the New Seahawks, the punch-you-in-the-face team no one wants to play.
  4. Marshawn granted an interview for this article.
That GIF is here.

I think that's what they call "a defining moment," for Lynch and the Seahawks.
