Marshawn Lynch is 'just about that action, boss'

Marshawn Lynch spoke to the media for just over six minutes in his first spin around Tuesday's Super Bowl Media Day session. NFL Media's Deion Sanders then tracked Lynch down. The conversation was vintage Beast Mode. Enjoy ...

SANDERS:How you doing, big fella?


SANDERS: You look good.

LYNCH: (Expletive), you do, too.

SANDERS: You all right? I like when you got off the plane with the Beast Mode (sweatshirt) and everything. You look like you're ready to play, man.

LYNCH: Yup, that's what time it is.

SANDERS: You camera-shy? You just don't want to talk, really.

LYNCH: I'm just about that action, boss.

SANDERS: You about to go get it. You just like to do.

LYNCH: That's what it is. I ain't never seen no talking winning nothing. Been like that since I was little. I was raised like that.

SANDERS: Well I respect it.

LYNCH: I'm gonna get it. Don't need to talk about it.

SANDERS: You excited about the game?

LYNCH: Hell yeah. Yeah!

SANDERS: See these are real emotions.

LYNCH: Yeah, that is.

SANDERS: It's on your back. They feel like if they can stop you, they can stop this team.

LYNCH: Well they're gonna have to stop all of us. You feel me?

SANDERS: I feel you.

LYNCH: I'm a beast to it, but, we got some dogs.

SANDERS: You don't like podiums, do you?

LYNCH: No, it ain't my thing.

SANDERS: What is your thing?

LYNCH: Laying back, kick back. Mind my business, stay in my own lane.

SANDERS: So you just gonna sit in the cut and just chill? That's what you're doing?
