Lynch makes decent throw … for a running back

Measured in their assessment, Seahawks players opted to smile and give kudos to Marshawn Lynch for his throwback pass Saturday.

Lynch had just picked up 37 rushing yards the previous play during his day-long bashing of the Atlanta defense. The Seahawks pitched the ball out to him from the Atlanta 43-yard line the next play. He pivoted and threw a soft, somewhat wobbly pass back to Russell Wilson.

Wilson set then launched toward Jermaine Kearse who pulled in the pass for a 43-yard touchdown to cap a two-play, 80-yard drive that took 57 seconds.

“Marshawn’s probably creeping around here somewhere, so, I’ll say it was a good throw,” wide receiver Doug Baldwin said.

Wilson credited Lynch with a “strike” before downgrading the pass to “not a ball.”

The gadget play brought memories of the end of last season when the Seahawks began to run more open-ended offense. It was also one of several big plays on the day.

Lynch had the 37-yard run to set up the play. Baldwin had a 30-yard gain. Kearse averaged 25 yards per catch. Wide receiver Golden Tate had a 46-yard catch.

“We’re just growing as whole,” Baldwin said of the offense. “Offensively, I thought it was a complete game.”
