Die-hard football fans and innocent Super Bowl XLIX bystanders all agree: the Seattle Seahawks’ final offensive play call was a colossal fail. Opting not to put the ball in the hands of Marshawn Lynch – who now has the most postseason rushing touchdowns in the franchise’s history – cost the team the Lombardi trophy last night (Feb. 1). But “Beast Mode” was not surprised by the call. In the only words uttered to reporters following his team’s loss to the New England Patriots, Lynch chalked the call up to football being a “team sport.” SEE ALSO: Besides Skittles, Only Michelle Williams Can Get Marshawn Lynch To Talk (And Sing!)
Marshawn Lynch asked if he’s surprised he didn’t get the football. Says “No.” I ask him, Why not? Says, “Because football is a team sport.”

And in signature fashion, the Seahawks running back offered no more quotes to the media, shoving cameras out of his grill upon his exit: Beast Mode out.
