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 there’s Chris Carson and he’s phenomenal in the Seahawks inside and outside zone system. Because most of those plays are out of shotgun it’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 he’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 he’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 shouldn’t matter that Carson was a 7th round selection back in 2017. Some people are just hungry for success and they’re so determined that they won’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. That’s the best formula for this offense.
