Pete Carroll was known at USC when he had ample talent available for playing a series of running backs who would comprise a committee. Will this be the case in his first season with the Seattle Seahawks?
There are advantages to playing more than two people at the position when the opportunity is available. It is one way to help minimize injury. Also, by having fresher backs with fewer carries, they will tend to sustain fewer injuries and be in a better position to launch explosive long gainers.
As will be seen, Carroll has a group mainly of shorter, more powerful and compact backs.
