Pete Carroll, Seahawks’ mentor has made it clear that the greatest issue with the run diversion has been QB Russell Wilson’s constrained versatility in light of lower leg and knee wounds. Also, the run blocking has not been great. In any case, the running backs are not doing as much as the Seahawks have generally expected, either, and this season has served as an update that Lynch’s most prominent quality may have been his sturdiness.
Seattle’s backs are averaging 1.57 yards for every rush after contact this year. That positions 25th in the NFL. The Seahawks positioned to start with, first and 6th in that class the past three years. They’ve depended on their backs to make something out of nothing when the blocking isn’t immaculate, and that hasn’t happened for this present year. Marshawn Lynch missed just a single amusement from 2010 to 2014. Given his brutal running style, that is particularly noteworthy. The Seahawks are finding how extreme it is for backs around the alliance to remain sound, given the wear and tear on their bodies.
In Wilson’s initial four seasons, the Seahawks never completed more awful than seventh in hurrying proficiency. This year, they are 23rd. So what’s the arrangement in the postseason? Thomas Rawls will be the lead back, and new kid on the block Alex Collins has played better as of late. Carroll said the youngster lost in regards to 10 pounds and is moving better.
Neither the Lions (23rd) nor Atlanta Falcons (29th) are especially great against the run, so the chance to get the ground play going will be accessible. Yet, as Carroll showed, it’s more probable that the Seahawks will utilize the rushed to set up different aspects of the offense. C.J. Prosise (shoulder) will have an output on Tuesday and he could return in a few weeks if the Seahawks are as yet playing.
