More Ajayi to Lynch Comparisons

I really liked this article (make sure you click on all the Imgur links to his highlights). It reminded me just how fortunate we've been to have the J-Train make his home in our rail yard. Being a Seahawks and BSU fan, I can also add that he passes the eyeball test when he is compared to Lynch. I watched as many of these two teams' games as I could, and I see similarities in Ajayi and Lynch that few writers have brought up. Maybe that's because it's not linked to statistics, just me being a visual person. For instance: They both throw their non-carrying hands around to help move laterally quickly when running at high speed. It reduces the need for stopping and stuttering to try and juke a defender, meanwhile allowing other defenders to catch up from behind. Also, I've noticed they stiff arm with a direction. They time their stiff arm with the defender's movement, using their own momentum against them. Almost like throwing them off angrily. They must have both waxed a lot of cars in their youths.

Speaking of Ajayi, Here's an ESPN Radio Interview

Don't have time to listen to it now, but I will later, while I'm cleaning out my garage. (No break in my spring!)

Speaking of Karate Kid... Netflix stops streaming it (and its sequels) on April 1st. If you haven't shown it to your kids yet, do it! It still holds up well after all these years (besides making the remake an embarrassing idea), and I found myself transported back to an age where all I wanted to do was grow up and be a karate kid. Or adult. Here's 30 facts about the movie.
