I might be mistaken but I think I heard one of the commentators last game mention Lynch weighed around 228lbs? I could see that being somewhat accurate seeing that he came into the league around 215, and he's definately heavier now. It really doesn't matter to me since he's having a career year, just wondering what you guys thought?

I don't care what he weighs as long as he rushes for 3tds he could weigh 600 pounds and it wouldn't matter

He looks every bit of 228 to me. He is thick from his hair to his toe nails. Goodness. I would hate to be ran over by him. He is a bowling ball, only not short for a running back (5'11"). I love his wide base and short steps. Great low center of gravity and excellent balance. That one run looked just like a nice throw in a bowling alley... :)

I am getting so giddy with this team. Go Hawks!!

maybe heavier, but he doesn't look any slower, and can still cut good...

I don't pay attention to the announcers. They typically talk out of their pooper.

I think he switched over to a smaller jersey too so it would be harder to grab jersey and pull him down. Just a guess though.

Well, they said last year he played the lightest he's been since college. He definately looked faster last year.

He looks thicker this year. He doesn't have a lot of long runs, but he's 2nd in the NFL in runs of 5-9 yards. I would guess him at 230, and he's a damn shifty 230.

Funny, but Turbin is listed at the same size, 5'11" and 225. He looks a lot learner than Marshawn does, and he's definately faster in a straight line, but isn't as shifty and doesn't break as many tackles (outside of AP, no one does though).

I read somewhere that he got that base and those crazy legs from rocking his bike side to side when he rode as a kid.

I noticed that too, and way smaller shoulder pads.

Turbin is ripped, all that muscle weighs more than fat, probably keeps him from moving side to side a little more difficult than Lynch. Man I love our RBs.
I still wish we had julius jones tho.

jk.

He loses about 10 pounds when he takes out his grillz.

Yup, he is having more long runs this year, including his career long 77-yarder. His speed an explosiveness has never been better, IMO.

Lynch is just a big solid mass. I think he looks even quicker this year than last year. He has been finding some success on the outside and beating people on the turn.

It just seems like he has really worked hard on doing everything since coming here. It didn't take him long to become my favorite player. It happened that first Chicago game, where he was getting hit in the backfield but still getting 2-4 yards with guys hanging on him.

Turbin... Wow, he is going to really be a solid runner. Lynch is still very young so we are lucky to have that kind of tandem.

Beast is special man. Comparing him to Turbin only confirms this (and I love Turbin, I'm a USU alumnus). Turbin seems to go down much easier inspite of his (more than likely ) superior strength and muscle mass. Not that Turbin is soft, just that Lynch is out of this world like. I've haven't seen anyone drag so many huge guys forward since maybe Christian Okoye or even (gulp) Earl Campbell.
