Stelton: Seahawks aren’t a running team, but it’s fine if they keep winning

The Pete Carroll-era Seahawks have traditionally built their offenses around one thing: a smash mouth running game.
While that was clearly something Seattle had in mind when it added Eddie Lacy to a backfield mix that already included Thomas Rawls over the offseason, neither player would be mistaken for the “Beast Mode” prime of Marshawn Lynch with their play in 2017.
The Seahawks may still have hopes in finding a way to get that same sort of ground attack they’re known for going this season, but the fact remains that they are 4-2 after beating the New York Giants on Sunday night, and their offense is doing so with a bigger emphasis on moving the ball through the air.
As Bob Stelton of 710 ESPN Seattle’s Bob, Groz and Tom explains in the video above, that’s just fine as long as the Seahawks keep winning.
