In this astute yet arrogant football haven, the Beast Quake barely registers in the locals' consciousness, let alone on their seismometer.
The Seahawks are just a nice little story never to happen again around here. Marshawn Lynch's unforgettable touchdown run, as well as Seattle's landmark upset of the reigning champion New Orleans Saints, are commendable but explainable.
"A lot of missed tackles," Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher says of Lynch's 67-yard rumble. "Good run, though."
I just had the image of Urlacher patting Lynch, aka Beast Mode, on the head.
