Seahawks Want To Run Ball More This Season 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sat May 20, 2017 12:20 am

The Seattle Seahawks plan to run the ball more in 2017.

The ground game struggled last season due to Marshawn Lynch's departure, injuries to running backs and a disastrous offensive line.

"We definitely will," Pete Carroll said of running more. "We lost 100-something runs last year. And that was basically the story. That was basically the tale of why everything came about as it did. The defense had to do some more stuff. We had to throw the ball more. We had to pass protect more and all of that because the running game got knocked up.

"With the quarterback being a mess and the running back situation, everybody being banged up, we were just unable to find it. So I think we'll come roaring right back at it."

Pete. You need to fix that offensive line first. Still needs to be seen if there is a serious commitment there.
