Yes, Chris Carson is starting to run back, says Pete Carroll, who also opposed the idea that a timeout in the fourth quarter showed that the team does not want Russell Wilson to change the game.
Two games are not necessarily a big sample size to determine much of everything about an NFL team.
Conversely, it is also an eighth of a NFL season.
And by two matches, the figures compounded by Seahawk's offense tell a rather disappointing story – Seattle is 27 th total crime (291 meters per game), 29 th in rushing 69), 21 st in total score (20.5).
Actually, Seattle is first allowed in an offensive state bag (1

Wednesday, when he held his regular weekly news conference, Seahawk coach Pete Carroll addressed the most important issues hovering over the Seattle crime after Monday's 24-17 loss in Chicago.
Here's a review of four that stood out:
CARROLL SELLS RUSSELL WILSON HAVE MORE FREEDOM EVER EVER
Wilson's uncharacteristic response when Seahawks called out a half-way through the fourth quarter, played a lot of social media action and speculation, with some Theorizing that Wilson may have been unfortunate coaches did not want him to change a game that had been sent.
It led some to wonder if Wilson has the same kind of ability to hear in the scheme of the new offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, as he previously had.
Carroll volunteered an explanation of the timeout, which came two gigs before Wilson threw a quit returned for a touchdown that essentially completed the game during an answe of a question about Wilson.
"We were wrong with it and the clock went down and so we called the timeout for that reason and that was it," said Carroll (there was nine seconds left at the time of the game).
"I know there are all kinds of theories out there. All is well. We competed for the moment. Russ did not know why we called timeout at the time. Immediately he was not sure what it was and that's all we had to Join. "
Asked if Wilson has the same freedom in this crime as he previously had, Carroll said:" He has a lot of freedom. He has more freedom than he ever had. Much more in fact, and he has done well with it. "
Freedom also includes the opportunity to run when Wilson wants," said Carroll.
Wilson has only 22 meters on five berries this year, few seem to be on track.
He had at least five berries in 12 games last season when he averaged 36 rushing yards per game. He had a long time of at least 10 meters in all but two matches last season. He has a length of 9 so far this season.
"We always like him to run, "said Carroll." I think it's good when Russ runs. We do not hate him from doing it and we want him to take off and move whenever he can. & # 39; & # 39;
CARROLL SAYS AN IMPATIENCE MADE TO BOTH RUNS CALLEDED
Speaking of the running game, Seahawks has so far failed to achieve it in a consistent manner with Seattle with only 138 meters on 38 berries and an average of 3.6 meters per bear.
Seattle last year totaled 101.8 rush hour per game and 4.0 per try, numbers the team was considered not good enough and it helped lead offensive by offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and offensive line coach Tom Cable.
Carroll has insisted in the last two weeks that the team wants to run more than it has but that circumstance – an inability to transform third downs and mount long runs, for example – has made it difficult.
On Wednesday, Carroll also took the debt to influence Schottenheimer's play.
"My impatience is a little know, w that we would be on the board more than we have and made him throw the ball a bit more than I wanted him to," said Carroll. "I'm over it. Both games were so close, they were close enough we could have done what we wanted all the way down to the end of it. Just a bit impatient, the ball threw a little more than we needed …. I have to be a bit less impatient. I … tend to be that way. "
It led to a question of whether Carroll exercises a greater impact on the game than he previously had.
Carroll said no but noticed that he and Schottenheimer "are growing together. … I was with boys for a long time – 7-8 years you know, and the like plays conversations. And then there are things to go through that there are new situations that happen. … I need to do a really good job to help him and that's really what I'm working to help him get really good and I have to do a better job to help him. & # 39;
CHRIS CARSON RESTS BACKGROUND
Carson's use Monday evening – just six berries and no one after 11:51 in the second quarter – led to many issues that only grew when Carroll said a reason Carson did not play more is that he was "a little gased" from playing on special team. Caron only saw two snaps on a special team.
Carroll repeated Wednesday that he made a mistake in assessing Carson's condition and said he had assumed that Carson was used on special allag more than he had been.
"I screwed up," said Carroll. "I thought he looked like he was early in the game so I was just worried about it and I thought it was because of special team because he had not had many games yet… That's not a big deal. Just trying to keep the guy fresh is what it means. "
Carson said Wednesday that he did not feel tighter than any other game.
" It was his decision he thought then. "" Carson said about Carroll's assessment that he was "gassed." "My job is to come in and play when my number is called and I'm ready when." "
Carroll also said that the team wanted to see the first round picking Rashaad Penny get some significant action – Penny finished 30m on 10 berries while Carson had 24 in six. But Carroll said Carson remains the starter of Sunday's game against Dallas
"We'll always spell a little," said Carroll. "Rashaad got a chance in the fourth quarter and wanted to see him run and see what he could do and he did well. That's all it is. There is nothing but that. There are no changes in the approach, no changes to the depth chart or any of it. Then we'll be really done it. "
Passport protection is better but it's time to start showing it.
Carroll again cited resilient passport as a reason why Wilson has had some fights in every game.
" It has been difficult for him because we have had so many rushes on us, "said Carroll." We have had difficulty protecting him for various reasons. I think he's cheating his tail. He does everything he can and he has been tough and resourceful and he has been special when he has moved and left. & # 39; & # 39;
But Carroll also insisted that the protection improved a year ago.
"Although the sack number is there, our protection is more solid than it has been," said Carroll. "It was under the crime and Russell expects that rhythm to help him."
But Carroll also said that at some point he must protect himself as well as he insists it is.
"I do not mean much to you before we start doing it," he says. "… We just get better and then it will show and we'll take advantage of it … but I can say all i want about it. We must show it. & # 39; & # 39;
