After losing to Green Bay this past Sunday night in the Divisional Round of the NFL playoffs, the incomparable Marshawn Lynch delivered a message in a way that only he can.
In classic form, the beloved son of Oakland cut left while the rest of us went right and instead of talking about the fact that he’s scored 4 touchdowns in the last 3 games (all since coming out of retirement) he chose to address the younger players in the league. He spoke about healthy ways to approach their psychological, physical, and financial journey while playing football professionally.
“Take care of y’all mentals, y’all bodies, and y’all chicken.” – Marshawn Lynch
