Marshawn Lynch isn’t easily impressed, so he patiently considered the question posed to him as he dressed in the visitors’ locker room at Soldier Field on Sunday.
Which play by Seattle Seahawks rookie quarterback Russell Wilson impressed him the most?
Lynch had plenty of options, given the brilliance and poise Wilson displayed throughout the Seahawks’ 23-17 overtime victory over the Bears.
◆ A 49-yarder to former Notre Dame receiver Golden Tate on third-and-six late in the second quarter.
◆ Or any number of plays on a 12-play, 97-yard touchdown drive late in the fourth quarter, during which he gained 19 yards on two runs and completed 6 of 9 passes for 80 yards, including a 14-yard touchdown to Tate.
◆ Or any number of plays on a 12-play, 80-yard touchdown drive in overtime, during which he gained 28 yards on three runs and completed all three of his passes for 38 yards, including the game-winner to Sidney Rice.
“[Expletive], all of them,” Lynch said when asked to pinpoint a specific play by Wilson that stood out in his mind. “All of them.”
