I was a whole lot more worried about this last year but I think we could get by a game or two with turbin/michael.

Quote:
Via Eric Williams of the Tacoma News Tribune, Lynch’s case will go to trial on June 21. Later this month, the presiding judge will consider a motion to dismiss the case and to suppress certain evidence relating to it.

If Lynch ultimately is convicted of or pleads guilty or no contest to DUI, he faces at a minimum a two-game fine under the substance-abuse policy. His history of off-field incidents could result in an enhanced punishment.

this along with the always compete montra sounds like the reason JS drafted Christine M. at RB...gotta be prepared for anything. Also, many talking heads are saying CM was a steal at 56....he would have been a 1st rounder if not for some off the field issues. lets hope he matures real quickly

Worst case scenario, we get to see a lot of Turbin and Michael and we save 70+ carries on Marshawn's treads.

eggzactly.

Last year at this time we were talking about whatever games he missed as an L. Now it's just an opportunity.

Its Cali home slice. It will get postponed again or dismissed because they have more important things to do. I ain't scurred.

We don't need Lynch to carry the offense with a new rookie QB like we did last year. I'm not worried, even if he's suspended for a few games. Especially after drafting Michael.

Would suck to lose him, but like everyone is saying...it's not the end of the world anymore.

Or, Michael doesn't mature and we get Lynch Part Deux and go through this again in 4 years. Either way, we'll be fine.

The 49ers and Seahawks are pretty evenly matched at this point... If Lynch has to sit the first two games of the season, it could be the difference maker in week 2.

At the end of the season that game could help decide who wins the division.

Absolutely agree. I think we're as able as any team in the league to withstand losing an offensive star like Lynch, but it certainly worries me against a team like SF.

I feel like Marshawns DUI isn't brought up enough in reference to seattle drafting 2 rbs

Here is an article that has some more details about his arrest and his BAC.

Was waiting for someone to mention this. As much faith as we have in RT and CM. Are we not forgetting that we are playing the Niners in week 2? We need the best of what we got.

IIRC, his blood alcohol content was just barely over the limit. I'm assuming that he's hired a decent attorney, so honestly, he should have a good shot at beating this thing, even in court. Most people that I've known who had the money to fight these cases when they are so close to the limit have won more times than they have lost in court. Of course for most people, fighting it is more expensive in the short term than just doing the time, so a lot don't, but I really think that we are getting worried about something that we really shouldn't. With our offense, we now have at least THREE guys who can run the ball if Lynch is out. Everyone mentions Turbin and Michael, but we also picked up a guy named Harvin who can run the ball pretty good too.

So, to sum it up, the odds are really in Lynch's favor for this case, and even IF they go against him finally, we have more than enough capable runners to do the job.

I wouldn't really say we drafted 2 RB's, we drafted a RB and a FB who can play RB. I see Ware as a more athlete Mike-Rob. Sure it will take some time for him to get the blocking down, but I beleive he brings a greater threat as a runner and catcher than M-Rob. Similar to Stanley Havili that PC had @ USC.

That's a valid point; however, it's equally valid to say that the 49ers are more accustomed to defending against Lynch, so he's easier to game plan for when it comes to defending the run. They have had very limited exposure to Turbin, and no exposure to C. Michael. Game planning for unknown factors while absolutely having to account for Percy Harvin could throw that wrench in the 9ers' direction just as easily.

I was wondering if anybody was going to mention this. It's like nobody remembers he's on the team and he is literally a do everything and anything type of player that cannot be catagorized into a neat little box. Also Wilson is not a rookie hamstrung in a limited offense anymore.

We obviously have a lot more than Lynch to give SF's D.C. a nightmare. I certainly am not worried about one player sitting out.

Not many backs have had Marshawn's success running against the Niners. Him not being there is going to be a factor.

Just because we now have a very good QB, that doesn't mean Lynch is less important. Wilson can do so much more because defenses must respect Lynch. The read option only works if you have a strong running game. 49ers have Gore, Skins have Morris. Football is a team sport and there are 11 players on offense not just a QB. A suspension to Lynch would hurt.

Lol...shockingly, you only tune into these comments.

Stop the circle jerk now. You are not going to beat us at C Link, with or without Lynch. Not going to happen.

We can score plenty through the air with Wilson, certainly enough to win at home. Kaep will be too busy straining to hear the playcalls and going to the locker room to get a fresh pair of pants to score many points.

Lynch out on the road and I'm concerned. Lynch out at home, and there are enough horses in the stable to pair with Russell's ability to seal the win. No way we get beat at home this year, by the Niners, or by anyone.

This is what has other fan bases laughing, no offense. U guys went 8-0 at home last year (with some help mind you ;) ) and now you guys think that it's a given every year.

Curious to see how this place reacts after your first home loss since so many on here are factoring in an automatic 8 home wins into your division hopes.

Newsflash, the Hawks have been nigh unbeatable at home even before having a team the caliber of last year's team, and this year's. Pretty sure nobody's laughing at the idea of the Hawks rolling unbeaten at Century Link, your wishes notwithstanding. Nothing's guaranteed in the NFL of course, but the Clink advantage is as close as it comes.

We took it easy on them in that 42-13 thumping. We could have easily scored 50.

Lifer you are fringing on a E-beat down. Reel in the anti-Hawk comments.

So you are still butt hurt over the lose from last year...glad to hear it.

No other fan base is laughing about playing in Seattle! You cry a lot, but thats different then laughing.

Yes nolifer, 8-0 is our new standard. Its cool your team can't hold down the fort like the Hawks, just don't whine about it here.

Marshawn will be fine regardless, 2nd chances happen.

Other fan bases laughing? No one "expects" to go 8-0 at home, but last season wasn't the first time it happened and the team didn't take any steps backward.

Are we suppose to say, there's a good chance we'll lose some games at home? Would that make you feel better?
the fact is we have an easier home schedule this year than we did last season, so why wouldn't we feel we can go 8-0 at home.. there's no disputing, the CLink gives us a clear advantage, and that is no wishful thinking, it's fact.. Just ask Kaepernose... and Brady, and Romo, and Rogers..

Of course it's the NFL and any given Sunday, but if you're hoping for a different prediction around here, don't hold your breath.. If any team is built to go 8-0 at home it's the Hawks.. And Falcons... If SF had any kind of home crowd, i'd say they had a chance as well. But you're fan's are too busy eating crabcakes and drinking Chardonnay..

Nope, didn't expect anything else as far as a home field forecast. Just surprised to see that not too many on here can put the homer glasses down and think realistically of the possibility that they won't go undefeated at home this year. As we all know, every team loses games they shouldn't once in a while. And since all of the forecasted 2013 records that I can remember seeing on here take an undefeated season at home into account, just curious as to what this place will look like if the Seahawks lose an early season home game, leaving the possibility of even more losses happening before the season ends.

I don't see what the big deal is because last year's 8-0 is just one of several that have been done at the Clink. Another team that has done it fairly consistently is New England ever since Brady took over. Besides I would be shocked if anything is made of the DUI case anyway. I see probation maybe outside of the NFL but suspension of games, not by a longshot.

You did read the article that stated that Goodell is likely to suspend him either way right? No matter what the civilian court system decides. It has been reported that guilty verdict or even a plea bargain would just guarantee suspension, but that Roger can decide to suspend him no matter what.

Of course he can and I know you hope for it but it isn't happening no matter how much you wish for it. Either way we're covered quite nicely with Michael, Harvin and Wilson so even if Lynch missed a couple games it won't hurt us as much as you think it will.

We'll see. Granted, Goodell can pretty much do whatever he wants BUT Marshawn's previous "troubles" technically fall under the league (and player's union) CONDUCT policy, while this infraction, technically falls under the drug / alcohol section. So, by the letter of the law, or the NFL law this is NOT a repeat offense, PLUS Marshawn has been a model citizen in his time here in Seattle. When you consider all this with the fact that Lynch blew a .08, right at the legal limit. At the very least I see the union fighting this, and appealing any suspension, at least until AFTER the 9ers game.

And once the other RB's get their sea legs, I'm all for Marshawn getting a much deserved rest. It will be a little vaycay for the guy. :229031_cheers:

Every article concerning his DUI case reports that he blew "OVER" the legal limit of 0.08.

I have searched for an article that states otherwise, but can't find it if its out there.

And for anybody on here to suggest that the loss of Lynch, one of the premier backs in the league, can be nullified by throwing in Michael...WTF? Seriously you either under appreciate what Marshawn does for not just your running game but also your passing attack, or you honestly think that Lynch is easily replaced which is completely ludicrous.

I know I don't have to explain how a strong (which might be an understatement when talking about your very own "Beastmode") running game helps a teams passing game...right?

Think as you wish. He will be missed of course but fact his because of our depth at that position and the fact we have Percy Harvin and Russell Wilson a loss of Lynch for maybe 4 games can and will be handled without much loss in production. If they have to pass more or use Harvin out of the backfield so be it.

See you are at a Seahawk board so don't act shocked that we don't buy your view hook line and sinker.

nobody's suggesting he's easily replaced, but we do have good depth in Turbin and Michael for a reason.. Lynch's style could easily cause injury, we need a good back up, suspension, we have a good back up, just to rest him up, we have good back ups.. it's called depth, and every team has backups for a reason..
players get injured and/or miss games all the time.

I am aware that I am at a Seahawks board, but didn't think that it would automatically cause people to lose all common sense. And yes I am also aware that if it was Gore that was arrested for a DUI and not lynch, we would be having the same debate but with opposite opinions. Niner fans would be taking the standpoint that you all are, and you guys would be the ones riding on the assumed fact that we would have to try to survive without Gore during his suspension in a division where EVERY game counts, and the loss of such a player for 2-4 weeks could potentially put an early tombstone above either of our teams hopes on a division title, which is obviously a prerequisite to a #1 or #2 seed.

And for some reason the link provided two posts above wont open correctly on my iPhone 5. However I was able to read the comments. One stated that the article brought up that he was indeed administered a second breathalyzer at the station and that it in fact showed he was OVER 0.08. Since I can't read the article (yet) I can't verify. But if so, what is the defense against that?

The alcohol metabalizing (sp) in his system perhaps? Faulty equipment/settings?

I imagine that is the common defense against DUI, but yet people are convicted of it every day.

Much ado about nothing.

If, and that's a sizable if we lose Marshawn due to a DUI arrest-type suspension, I am not worried because Russell's progress in the passing game last year leads me to believe that we can win even if the run game is stymied for a while. And there's not a damn thing wrong with Robert Turbin's game.

The rest of the offense (Wilson, Turbin, MRob, Harvin, Tate, Rice, Balwin, & Miller) will pick up the slight slack caused by Marshawn's absence.

No problema, imo.
