I Was A Loud Mouth Once

Marshawn Lynch
has been taking heat for BARELY saying a word at the Super Bowl media events in NY this week ... but years before he clammed up, the guy gave one of the GREATEST football soundbites of all time.

It all went down after Marshawn's Oakland Tech High School beat up on Skyline High back in '04 ... that's when Lynch -- who had just scored a MONSTER rushing TD for the win -- erupted on camera after the game.

There was raw emotion ... there was pure happiness ... there was a promise to treat his linemen to a fancy dinner at Sizzler.

No word on whether the o-line ever got the meal ... but Marshawn can definitely afford it now.

Could the real reason be he can't put two words together to make a sentence? If he really spoke we could not understand what language he speaks. Most of these players might run fast or hit hard but they don't have much brain power.
