    Marshawn Lynch 'excited to see' how good Jets will be

    [COLOR=black]This is a bit bizzare...[/COLOR]

    [COLOR=black]ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- [/COLOR][URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=10456"][/URL][COLOR=black]Marshawn Lynch has accepted the fact he's still a member of the [/COLOR][URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=buf"][/URL][COLOR=black]Buffalo Bills. [/COLOR]
    [COLOR=black][/COLOR]
    [COLOR=black]But when he thinks about stepping outside of reality, he can't wait to play with the [/COLOR][URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=nyj"][/URL][COLOR=black]New York Jets.

    Lynch has been captivated by all the offseason moves the Jets have made. When the "Madden 11" video game comes out in August, the Jets will be Lynch's team.

    "I'm probably not supposed to say that, but I'm excited to see what the Jets are going to do," Lynch told me after Thursday's minicamp practices. "I'm real excited.

    "Now that's a team that I'm going to pick and play with on Madden. That's real talk."

    Lynch certainly will have a better chance to win with the Jets than he will with his own team on "Madden 11." The Jets have a team rating of 89, fourth-highest on the game. The Bills scored a 67, higher than only the [/COLOR][URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=stl"][/URL][COLOR=black]St. Louis Rams.

    I asked Lynch what Jets acquisition has impressed him most.

    He nodded emphatically as I went down the line: Antonio Cromartie? [/COLOR][URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=9611"][/URL][COLOR=black]Santonio Holmes? [/COLOR][URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=1245"][/URL][COLOR=black]Jason Taylor? [/COLOR][URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=2553"][/URL][COLOR=black]LaDainian Tomlinson?

    "Ooooo, see? They made so many moves it's hard to just pinpoint one," Lynch said. "I am a running back, and LT ... Man, one of the best that ever did it. I'm going to be excited to see him twice a year. Santonio and [Darrelle] Revis and Cromartie over there, that's going to be interesting."

    Lynch acknowledged the Jets are gambling with team chemistry. They've brought in some large personalities and parted ways with leaders such as running back [/COLOR][URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=2138"][/URL][COLOR=black]Thomas Jones and kicker [/COLOR][URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=2548"][/URL][COLOR=black]Jay Feely.

    "They are taking some risks," Lynch said. "Hopefully the risks they take are going to pay off for us. But that's going to be something fun to watch."

    Don't think Lynch has surrendered his Buffalo allegiance.

    After months of speculation Lynch would be traded and his delayed arrival to the practice field, he claimed he's excited about how the Bills' backfield is shaping up among himself, [/COLOR][URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=10195"][/URL][COLOR=black]Fred Jackson and rookie [/COLOR][URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=13203"][/URL][COLOR=black]C.J. Spiller. Undrafted rookie [/COLOR][URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=13536"][/URL][COLOR=black]Joique Bell also is in the mix.

    "It's going to be a great thing to see on paper, fantasy, live, in practice, in video games," Lynch said. "However you can see us get down to action and regardless of who the No. 1 is, even if I'm No. 5, it's going to be beautiful to watch us play."[/COLOR]

    Me thinks Lynch is trying to talk up the Jets so that when/if Buffalo releases him we consider taking a look at adding him to our Super Bowl roster. :yes: I mean, he would be a better option than Woodhead if we're going to keep 4 RB's, no?

    Even though he's a disaster as a human being, it's likely that behind this OL he and Greene would make for a pretty potent 1-2 combo if the LT experiment only lasts a year.

    He would definitely scare off any new tryouts for the Flight Crew, though. That's one ugly SOB. He should run with his helmet off just to make DBs think twice.

    The guy has always played real well against us.

    By the way, can a kicker really be a leader on a team?

    Put Calvin Pace in at FB and we'd have the most feared RB duo in the league.

    What an idiot.

    Although this is Tim Graham trying to stir up more **** in the offseason. He was asking him about Madden.

    Agreed - weird. I appreciate the compliments of the Jets, and all, but I don't think I've ever seen something like that. I understand that its a Madden discussion (or at least started that way), but still - Madden is based on the real life NFL, to the best extent possible.

    The only thing certain if Lynch became a Jet is that he would win the King Ugly title.

    I agree with you both, but no lie ... I was laughing the whole time I read the article.

    Seriously. WTF?

    BUT, Lynch wasn't only talking about Madden. He said he was excited to see what the Jets will do--as in, during the regular season. He didn't say he was excited to see what the Jets would do in Madden. He's running the team in Madden.

    So, in essence, he was speaking as an NFL watching the season from the outside BESIDES the Madden talk.

    Still, as a player you can't say what he said. I applaud his honestly, but honesty is not always the best policy.

    LOL

    Marshawn is from the streets of Oakland. He's got a pretty hard block to knock. I can't tell if he's blowing smoke or if it is <realtalk>.

    Just another tool who will abandon his favorite team and play with the Jets on Madden 11.
