For now Marshawn Lynch is still the man for the Seattle Seahawks in the back field. Running backs coach Sherman Smith was asked recently if the team had any plans to lighten the work load for Lynch in 2014, and Smith replied it was out of the question. So it looks like full speed ahead for Beast Mode next season.
However, the whispers are growing that Christine Michael may supplant him as soon as 2015. Seattle’s first draft pick last year has been wowing the team and coaching staff in practices for some time now and Pete Carroll says that he has the most breakout potential on the roster. Fans have only gotten rare glimpses of C-Mike’s awesome potential as he played in just four games last year.
Yesterday we got another preview of the future for the Seahawks at running back. Michael posted the highlight to his Instagram account. Warning: the following video may blow your mind like Oberyn Martell.
The future is bright.
