Marshawn Lynch has been suspended for the first three games in another one of his off the field troubles. This time Lynch was arrested for gun possession.
This is good news for the Patriots. Lynch is an absolute beast and the Patriots would need to put an emphasis on stopping him by creeping the safety up. Now they can turn most of their attention to stopping T.O. and Lee Evans. The can lay their safetys over the top for Evans or double team T.O.
Lynch's back up is Fred Jackson who is a tough runner but is no where near the runner of Marshawn. If you remember the Patriots played a Lynch less team in the final game of last season because he was hurt and blanked the Bills 13-0.
