I know Marshawn Lynch is great and a physical runner, but he has been playing hurt for the past 3 games. He has been missing practice with back and foot injury. He has fumbled the ball during these games but we were able to over come in 2 of them but not the 3rd. My question is this, are we playing him as Redskins played RG3, where he is too important a player even if he is not 100%. I was wondering what if he put Turbin in early in the ATL game to run physical and change the first and second quarter instead of a 50 or a 40% Marshawn Lynch?
I totally respect Marshawn and the beast mode and all of that stuff, so I am not asking this question to undercut his value, but when a team is put in a position to win games, did the coaches do the right thing by putting him in more often than not. When we were in 3&1 for instance, he pulled himself out and then we had to go 4&1 and he was forced to go back in for instance.
