Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch is one of the most unique players in the NFL.
Among other legendary soundbites, he has publicly voiced his displeasure with the Seattle Seahawks’ decision to attempt a pass from the 1-yard line with Super Bowl XLIX on the line, he has made it clear that he doesn’t particularly enjoy media gatherings, and he has proclaimed his love for the city of Oakland, Calif. on multiple occasions.
As a result, people have created multiple fake Twitter accounts in Lynch’s honor.
On Tuesday evening, upon learning of the New York Giants decision to bench quarterback Eli Manning, several NFL players (both past and current) voiced their disgust with the way the situation was handled. But in the end, it was an imitation Lynch Twitter account that won the contest for best job of trolling the Giants.
The @Giants benching Eli Manning for Geno Smith is almost as crazy as not running the ball on the 1 with a Super Bowl in the line 🤔🤔

With one simple tweet, the faux account slammed both the Giants for replacing a two-time Super Bowl MVP with a player (Geno Smith) who has a career quarterback rating of 72.4, and the Seahawks, who made the bone-headed decision to attempt a pass from the 1-yard line (which was intercepted by New England Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler) rather than hand the ball off to Lynch with Super Bowl XLIX on the line.
Lynch and the Raiders are set to play host to the Giants this Sunday.
