Golden Nuggets: Lynch continues to dominate as league's leading rusher

Not all of Cal Football is sputtering in ineptitude. Marshawn Lynch, despite being in year 6 of what has been a tumultuous NFL career, has become one of the most vaunted offensive weapons in all of football. Currently, Beastmode leads all rushers with 1,246 yard from scrimmage since Week 9 of last year.

Not all is bad with Cal Football. Lynch, the Oakland native and beloved son of California, continues to dominate the next level in quite awesome fashion.

Is there a better runner in the NFL as of late? Lynches unique combination of speed, power, stiff-arms (or "dome-shots"), raw-determination, and skittles have made him an unstoppable force for what was once one of the worst rushing teams in the NFL.

To be honest, I don't like the Seahawks, but I love watching 24 utilize his unique "beast-mode" ability on Sundays.

Jakob Engelke reports from SB Nation Seattle

"Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has been the most productive running back in the NFL -- statistically speaking -- since Week 9 of last season, according to a report on the team's official website.

Lynch leads all NFL running backs in rushing over the past 12 weeks with 1,246 yards. Lynch has carried the ball 283 times, good for a 4.4 yards-per-carry average, and scored 10 touchdowns over that span.

Three running backs are close to Lynch but have yet to surpass him. Maurice Jones-Drew of the Jacksonville Jaguars has run for 1,180 yards, Ray Rice of the Baltimore Ravens has rushed for 1,143 yards and Reggie Bush, who played for the New Orleans Saints last season but is with the Miami Dolphins this year, has picked up 1,053 yards on the ground."

Are there any backs in Cal's current stable which could ever live up to #10?
