Did the Seahawks do enough to fix their run game? -

After struggling to run the ball for the entire 2016 season, the Seahawks got back to what they did best in Seattle's win over the Detroit Lions in the NFC's wild card round. Seattle's running backs were held to 51 yards on 14 carries in the next week's season-ending loss to the Atlanta Falcons, a fitting end to a campaign marked by the team's inability to consistently move the ball on the ground. Entering the 2017 offseason, fixing the run game was a top priority, and the team certainly shuffled the deck on offense, bringing in former Green Bay Packers Pro Bowler Eddie Lacy to compete for playing time along with Rawls, who missed seven games in 2016, and second-year pro C.J. Prosise.  [...] injuries and weight issues wore him down the past two seasons, when he averaged just under 56 yards per game and scored three rushing touchdowns total. The offseason additions in the backfield and on the line, plus a healthy Wilson, should mean better results for Seattle's running game after a tumultuous 2016 campaign. [...] given the question marks surrounding the running back group's ability to stay on the field, plus the uncertain prognosis for the new new-look offensive line, it's an open question as to whether or not the Seahawks will get back to dominating on the ground.Visit for more Seattle Seahawks news.
