Marshawn Lynch came out of retirement to play for his hometown Oakland Raiders and try and win another NFL championship.
Don’t be surprised if his dancing continues to be proportional to his winning.
With the score 35-13 in favor of Oakland, the New York Jets didn’t take too kindly to seeing Lynch dancing on the sideline during the game.

For obvious reasons, seeing an opponent dance celebratorily while beating you by three touchdowns is going to be upsetting. It should be upsetting. But what drew even more of a reaction was the way Jets linebacker Jordan Jenkins responded to Lynch’s dancing while speaking with the media after the game:

The best way to keep an opponent from dancing to win. Or at least stay competitive. The Jets failed to do either, as many expect them to do on a number of occasions this year.
Even with that in mind, Jenkins’ comments were perceived as whining by many, including Mike Golic and Mike Greenberg.

The Jets play the Miami Dolphins next week. If the New York defense fails to show up again, they might be complaining about Jay Cutler’s dancing on the sideline.
…Just kidding, Jay Cutler could never muster the enthusiasm to dance.
