Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said that running back Marshawn Lynch is "probably the best player on our offense."
In last Sunday's win against the Raiders, Lynch had 21 carries for only 67 yards (3.2 yard average), but he scored two short touchdowns. Lynch also caught five passes for a team-high 76 yards against the Raiders and leads Seattle with three receiving touchdowns this season
“We want to use our good players,” Bevell told The Seattle Times. “And he’s definitely, probably the best player on our offense and we want to get him the ball as many ways as we can.”
Bevell, in his fourth season as Seattle’s offensive coordinator, said he agreed with Wilson when he said after the game that it wasn’t one of his best games.
"There’s some where he missed throws," Bevell said. "There’s some where protection issues caused him to move or caused throws to happen like that. Guys being in the right place at the right time for him. So it’s never just one thing that you can put your finger on it’s usually a combination of factors.”
