Marshawn Lynch launches “BeastQuake” clothing line 10 years after earth-shaking carry


On Jan. 8, 2011, Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch had one of the most iconic runs in NFL history when he plowed his way through nine New Orleans Saints defenders for a 67-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter.

Lynch unleashed a brutal stiff arm to Saints cornerback Tracy Porters as he led the Seahawks to a 41-36 victory over the defending Super Bowl champion in the Wild Card Round of the NFL’s 2011 Playoffs. The incredulous run was so impactful that the crowd’s reaction registered seismic activity – roughly the equivalent of a magnitude 1 earthquake.

The earth-shaking carry is quite possibly the greatest play in Seahawks history.

In homage to the epic moment on its 10-year anniversary, Lynch and Brand Marinade came together to release limited edition “BeastQuake” shirts and hoodies through his BeastMode Apparel clothing company

Take a look:


“Merry #BeastQuake day!!!” Lynch said in a post announcing the exclusive fits. “10 years ago?? Damn that was hella long ago. Stoopid fun times tho.”

A percentage of all sales will be donated to the Fam 1st Family Foundation which helps underserved youth by “aiming to build new generations of innovative thinkers to create solutions for the future of Oakland & the World.”

While Lynch is no longer making beastly moves on the football field or tossing Skittles in the Lumen Field end zone, he's certainly taking care of his "chicken."

The 34-year-old recently hinted at the possibility of coming out of retirement for a third time, despite not playing a single down since last January.

"If the situation is right, then I mean, it could happen," Lynch said. "I've been asked the question by a couple teams here recently. Like, 'Are you ready?' I'm ready if you all are Super Bowl ready. That's what it would take me to come out, to come and play again. It would have to be a guaranteed Super Bowl game for me."

Unlike last year, the Seahawks aren’t in need of any reinforcements in the backfield as they gear up for their playoff run. That narrative could change in the coming weeks. For now, Seattle is preparing for its Wild Card Round matchup with the Los Angeles Rams on Saturday at 1:40 p.m. (PT).
