There are enough reports to validate that there is an issue brewing between the Seahawks and the true heartbeat of the offense, Marshawn Lynch. Whether he holds out, flips another bird to his offensive coordinator, or both, remains to be seen.

There are two things that I believe to be true as the defending champs begin the process of a Super Bowl title defense.

  1. They can't afford to pay Marshawn Lynch more money this season, or next.

  2. I don't care what Christine Michael has done against air in OTA's, this team needs #24 next season.
