Saints free safety Darren Sharper went as far as to describe the run as "beastly," aptly named for Lynch's self-proclaimed approach to the game known simply as "beast mode."
Of course the natural progression is for everyone to inject his or her take on the run, followed by a discussion on the run's historical significance, finally, reaching its pinnacle with a Super Mario Bros. rendition posted on YouTube.
What's left? Well, it's time for science to speak to the run's significance. And speak it did.
According to the University of Washington's strong motion station, located just across the street from Qwest Field in Seattle, the thunderous roar of the Seahawks fans recorded a blip on the seismograph just as Lynch was crossing the end zone at the completion of his 67-yard touchdown run.
Simply put, the Seattle fans, and possibly a few screaming Saints fans willing their defense to make a tackle, caused a minor earthquake. How's that for your 12th man.
Yes, it is a moment which should be enjoyed by Seattle fans. One which may never be forgotten, win or lose this weekend against the Bears.
