In 2009 the Seahawks couldn't run the ball to save their lives, much less a football game.
Blame it on Jim Mora. Blame the Swiss cheese they used for an offensive line. Blame it on the underdeveloped zone-blocking scheme. Blame the anemic passing game. Whatever you want. There are plenty of options to choose from.
Last year is behind us and the team has addressed some of the aforementioned problems in an attempt to bolster the Seattle rushing attack which was widely feared once upon a time.
Mora: gone. Offensive line: stronger. Zone-blocking: in its second year. Passing game: Hasselbeck is back!
So what can we expect from the 2010 Seattle Seahawks running game?
Can they take strides toward returning to elite rushing status? Will Leon Washington get healthy enough to share duties in a RB-by-committee scheme? Can Justin Forsett maintain impressive yards-per-carry?
Let's take a look at all of the backs and guess how each will fare in the much anticipated 2010 season.
