Marshawn Lynch doesn't really talk to the media all that often, and we've seen the uproar that ensues when he does all during Super Bowl week. When Lynch does talk, even in just short bursts, he tends to drop some pretty entertaining quotes. Like this one, from his Super Bowl media session on Thursday (with Michael Robinson acting as a lead blocker again):
Marshawn Lynch asked about coach Tom Cable: "Being from Oakland all I knew about him is he punched people. That's my kind of person." #SBSMG— Jim Corbett (@ByJimCorbett) January 30, 2014
(The full story about Cable is here, for those that need a refresher)
Later, we got this (side note: Why complain about Lynch not talking, only to ask him about his dog. Real hard-hitting stuff here, but the quote is great … if insignificant):
SI.com: What does he do while you play? Does he watch your games?
Lynch: Haha, no. He’s out doing his doggie dog thing, living in his doggie dog world. You feel me?
And since we have the opportunity, let's look back at some of the fun Marshawn Lynch quotes:
Not technically a quote to the media, but Marshawn in September on his Super Bowl aspirations (and mic'd up players):
"F--k em" from his E:60 interview:
And all of this video:
"Helloooooooooo. Is anybody in there?
So sure, he can be pretty quotable and engaging at times. And it's pretty great when he's comfortable and playful!
