Marshawn Lynch is back for good:”Beastmode” scored his first touchdown in the Oakland Raiders’ jersey against the New York Jets after his resignation.
The 31-year-old scored points in his usual manner: The runningback threw himself into the tumult three yards before the final zone and could not be stopped by any defender in time.
Before the age of 75.Touchdown in his NFL career proved to Lynch that he didn’t forget anything during his year off.A total of twelve times “Beastmode” carried the egg to the front in the 45:20 win over the New York Jets and managed to gain 45 yards of space.
In a sporty manner, the Star Runningback thus seamlessly continued its achievements with the Seattle Seahawks, for which it blended one NFL defense after another from 2010 to 2015.
But Lynch also lives up to his reputation as an enfant terrible of the league: In his first match of the season against the Tennessee Titants, he scored a mid-finger sensation, which the NFL sanctioned with a severe fine.
After his touchdown against the jets,”Beastmode” provoked the opponent with a crazy dance interlude on the sidelines.
13 minutes before the end, the Raiders’ victory at 35:13 was already in dry clothes.Lynch took the power demonstration as an occasion for an extensive dance.
The home crowd celebrated their favourite at his first performance in his hometown, the jets were being served:”That really got on my nerves.When I saw it, I got incredibly angry.I’m an old-school guy, and I don’t like to see things like that happen.It was humiliating to lose and see Marshawn dancing like that,”said linebacker Jordan Jenkins.
“He’s a great player, but after this interlude, the whole team should get angry and we should come up with the right answer next Sunday.”
Jenkins’ team mates Steve McLendon and Darron Lee were not amused either:”It upset us because it made it look like he was going to rub the defeat under our noses,”said Nose Tackle McLendon.Lee added:”As a competitor, as a defender you don’t want to see that.It’s demoralizing.”
In spite of all the trouble, the inferior jets also paid tribute to Lynch’s comeback:”If you perform like that when you beat a team like they beat us today, you have to celebrate,”Jenkins said.
“You have to take defeats like a man.This is football.He’s fighting.He’s earned everything he showed today.I’m not gonna deny him that, even though I’m upset he’s jumping around like that, of course.But this is sport, it’s not unsportsmanlike behavior.”
