Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch doesn’t like to talk to the media, but when he does Lynch says some incredible things. On Thursday, Lynch was asked about offensive line coach Tom Cable, who also was the former head coach of the Oakland Raiders.
“Being from Oakland, all I knew about him was he punched people,” Lynch told reporters. “That’s my type of person.”
Cable of course was accused of breaking the jaw of former Raiders assistant Randy Hanson.

It might be thoughts like this that play a role in Lynch’s decision to avoid the media. It sounds humorous, but Lynch made the comment with a straight face.
