Lynch officially made his post-retirement debut last week against the Tennessee Titans. Everything about it reminded us why we missed him so much during his year off from the NFL. But this week marks Lynch’s first game in Oakland, in front of a home crowd.
Lynch entertained us last week with his play and with classic Marshawn antics, like flipping the Titans’ Karl Klug a double bird and interrupting Jack Del Rio’s post-game presser to make sure he wasn’t going to get fined for ducking out without talking to the media.
Now Lynch will finally get to play in front of a home crowd in Oakland, his hometown that he loves so dearly. And we can’t wait.
Shortly after the end of the 2017 NFL Draft, SB Nation’s Dan Kadar posted his first mock draft for 2018. While an NFL and college football season will warp most of Kadar’s predictions, he was optimistic about the class of passers on the horizon.
USC’s Sam Darnold, UCLA’s Josh Rosen and Wyoming’s Josh Allen were projected as the top three picks, respectively. Not far behind was Oklahoma State’s Mason Rudolph at No. 8 and Jackson at No. 11.
Sure, some of you may have heard the fake news that Gronk played football at Arizona State. Some of you may even think you witnessed it. This didn’t happen. It must’ve been some weird group hallucination. Maybe you all need to lay off the ayahuasca, but hey, I don’t know. I’m not a doctor.
If Gronk’s origin story were a movie, what followed upon his arrival in Foxborough was a montage along the lines of Will Farrell in Elf learning how to ride the subway, or the kids in Stranger Things taking Eleven to school.
