INDIANAPOLIS — The Seattle Seahawks don’t seem like about to repair something that may perchance not damaged.
The Seahawks led the league in speeding closing year, averaging a healthy 160 yards per game, thanks to the contributions of Chris Carson, Mike Davis after which-rookie Rashaad Penny, the crew’s first-spherical decide in 2018.
Carson led the crew in speeding with 1,151 yards on 247 yards, while Penny capped off his rookie season with 419 yards speeding on 85 carries. It remains to be viewed if the Seahawks bring support Davis, who’s determined to develop into an unrestricted free agent on March 13, but Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll made it particular Thursday at the NFL Scouting Combine how he views Carson and Penny for the 2019 season.
“One-two punch and I salvage not know who’s one or who’s two,” Carroll said. “It would not topic to me. I believed both guys did a actually upright job.”
Carson’s emergence came as a shock given Penny’s lofty draft draw. However an peril suffered in training camp space support Penny and opened the door for Carson to shine.
“Chris had an wonderful season,” Carroll said. “It be the fundamental time Chris has if truth be told had the chance to play a entire season the entire technique via and demonstrate what he’s all about. It used to be exhilarating to mediate him have that probability and to see him play. His vogue used to be giant and loved the technique he performed.”
The Seahawks haven’t stumbled on a official running support to raise a full load since Marshawn Lynch stepped a ways from soccer after the 2015 season.
Seattle went via the likes of running backs Christine Michael, Thomas Rawls, Eddie Lacy and C.J. Prosise, amongst others, with a diagram to field a capable backfield before discovering the system closing season with Carson, Penny and Davis.
Carson, a bodily runner, and Penny, a speedster and capable receiver out of the backfield, complement each other successfully.
And with a winning backfield-by-committee technique in 2018 helped by an improved offensive line, Carroll is never in a urge to alternate how the Seahawks speed the soccer with Carson and Penny.
“Those two guys, they’re upright soccer avid gamers and we love what they create,” Carroll said. “They aren’t the same, their running vogue is noteworthy a amount of, but there may perchance be a couple of room for both these guys. I am enraged for both of them.”
