The Seattle Seahawks would be foolish to take Chris Carson off the field. His running style is perfect for their system:

Scheme matters a lot when it comes to a player’s success. For example some running backs are better in I-formation with a fullback lead blocking. Others do their best work by catching the ball out of the backfield and using their speed to break defenders down.



Then thereā€™s Chris Carson and heā€™s phenomenal in the Seahawks inside and outside zone system. Because most of those plays are out of shotgun itā€™s takes a fearless runner who is able to slash up the gut and cutback when the defense over-pursues. Carson did such a good job with this and heā€™s mainly a power back. He did hurdle a couple of linebackers but for the most part Carson lowers his head and refuses to go down. If this guy has to fight for a first down or fight to get in the end zone heā€™ll give a second or third effort to make plays for his team. Yeah Seattle drafted Rashaad Penny in the first round a year ago but how can they take the job away from Carson? After rushing for 1,151 yards and 9 touchdowns that would be the worst decision that Pete Carroll could make. Everyone has to earn their playing time at the professional level and it shouldnā€™t matter that Carson was a 7th round selection back in 2017. Some people are just hungry for success and theyā€™re so determined that they wonā€™t be denied. Chris Carson is a perfect example of this and clearly he was overlooked when coming out of college. Penny should be used sparingly but it really should be an 80-20 split with Carson getting the bulk of the carries. Thatā€™s the best formula for this offense.
