Marshawn, Marshawn, Marshawn!

You better believe the person who does my laundry knows exactly how I reacted this morning when I learned of Bill RB Marshawn Lynch’s possible off the field troubles.

In case you haven’t heard, a car reportedly registered to Lynch was involved in a possible hit-and-run accident late Saturday night /Sunday morning near a Buffalo bar. Luckily, for all parties involved, the person, who was a woman, was able to get up and walk away under her own power.

I’m really hoping for the best for Lynch. I’m hoping he wasn’t in that car, or at the least wasn’t driving. It’s unfortunate, because this incident flies in the face of my interview with Lynch, on a few levels, so I’m hoping it’s a non-issue in a day or two.

  • The Prince Connection: Rodgers and Nelson July 7, 2014
    If you follow along over at my Twitter account @FG_Dolan (shameless plug), you’ve probably noticed my undying love for Jordy Nelson, and the fact that I’d happily welcome him onto any of my fantasy teams this year. First of all, he’s madly productive as is: he hauled in 85/1314/8 last year and averaged 16.5 FPG in a PPR league. That was good enough to rank h […]
