Lynch and Schobel have tit-for-tat relationship

Marshawn Lynch and Aaron Schobel seem to enjoy trying to get under one another’s skin during practice. Whether it’s Schobel giving a playful kidney punch when the two are subbed out on the sideline, Lynch giving Schobel an extra shove at the end of a run play or jawing back and forth with one another during play. Lynch commented on just exactly what the two are doing out there.

“Schobel is my son,” said Lynch. “He is actually my son. Your son gets out of hand, you have to put him in his place sometimes. But seriously Schobel has been a great guy for me since I came into the league. I pull him off to the side and ask him some things and get some pointers on what defensive ends don’t like, and I found out they don’t like being chipped. So every chance I get I go and give him a chip. And if you all know Schobel, he doesn’t like being chipped. He doesn’t like being messed with.”

Schobel didn’t really care to comment on the games he and Lynch play, but one this is certain, they get each other riled up for practice and that can’t be a bad thing. I’ll have to tell him about the ‘son’ comment by Lynch however.
