Momma Lynch clarifies her remarks about Seahawks play-calling, sort of…
SEATTLE — The mother of Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch took to social media Thursday for the second time this week to clarify her previous remark that included a call for the offensive coordinator to be fired.
Delia Lynch made news for a rant on Facebook in which she called for offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell’s job after a fourth-and-1 call resulted in the team’s overtime loss to the St. Louis Rams.
Coach Pete Carroll said he had no problem with a mother defending her son and Bevell also shrugged off the comments.
Delisa Lynch on Thursday decided to clarify her previous remarks:
Regarding Bevell, she apparently had no further comment.
In a Monday posting (which has since been deleted) on her Facebook page, she said Bevell should have been fired after last season’s Super Bowl loss to the New England Patriots.
She called Bevell “the worst playcaller ever” and suggested he gave the ball to Lynch in a critical spot against the Rams last Sunday to make up for the interception that ended Super Bowl XLIX.
“Too the smart azz media who wrote that’s why marshawn didn’t get the ball in the superbowl ,how many times did russell get sacked yesterday,” Delisa wrote in the Facebook post. “Dont worry i will wait on the answer plus it was totally different at the superbowl the line was better than yesterday no blocking and to the offense caller who should have been fired yes i said it Fired !!! He is the worst play-caller ever the only reason he called that dumb azz play yesterday is to be able to justify the 1 yard that wasn’t called in the superbowl ,but most fans already figured this out .were still on a mission but i know the Seahawks staff loves that play caller more than a win ,go figure #nfldontpayme# I love this team and will stand up to anybody who tries to destroy it boom!!!!”
