Carroll vows Seahawks’ run game will get back on track

Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll expressed that sentiment when asked to explain why his dominant run game averaged just 2.7 yards per carry in his team’s 12-7 win over Carolina.

“Not everything worked out the way that we’d liked,” Carroll said. “We didn’t run the ball very well. In our program, as you guys know, that’s a huge focus and so we were disappointed.

“We plan to go right back to business and get it done this week. We can’t go like that. We’re not going to do our football that way. We have to do something about it this week against a tremendous defense.”

The Seahawks finished No. 3 in the league in rushing last season, averaging 161.2 yards a contest.

But in the first half against Carolina on Sunday, the Seahawks totaled just 34 yards. Carroll said his staff changed the approach of Seattle’s run game to try to take advantage of things the team noticed when watching the Panthers on video.

But when Seattle’s running attack stalled, Carroll said the Seahawks went back to what had been successful for offensive line/assistant head coach Tom Cable last season in the second half, and things finally began to click for them in the fourth quarter.

“We just didn’t get it done the way that we liked it,” Carroll said. “I contributed to that. So I’ve got to make sure that I help out and do the right things to help us, and get us on a track on what’s really important to us.

“We didn’t zero in early enough, where we could make the adjustments that we normally make. It just took us a while. At the end of the game, we were able to run the ball enough to make

the drives that we needed and things worked out. It just took us longer than we needed in that game in particular.”
