Seahawks won't change philosphy if Marshawn Lynch doesn't show
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said the team won't change its run-first philosophy, regardless of how long Marshawn Lynch's holdout lasts. Seattle ran the ball a league-high 54.8 percent of the time last year.

"I think our plan has been pretty successful," Bevell told the Seattle Times. "We play great defense, we take great care of the football and we run the football, and that keeps us in games and allows us to exert our will on the opponent, that physical toughness that we like to do ... That’s our style and our philosophy and we are going to continue to do that."

Lynch's contract holdout isn't expected to last too long. In the meantime, Christine Michael and Robert Turbin are the team's top two backs.

Seahawks coordinator backtracks on committee comment
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, who raised eyebrows by saying the team planned a committee approach at running back, backtracked from that comment. According to the Everett Herald, Bevell said he meant he'd use a committee approach during OTAs, not the season.

Marshawn Lynch still should see the bulk of the carries, but the explosive Christine Michael is headed for a bigger role. Robert Turbin will see some work on passing downs.

Marshawn Lynch still on top of committee
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Even though Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell recently said the team plans to use a "running back by committee" with Marshawn Lynch, Christine Michael and Robert Turbin, there is still one leader in the backfield.

And that's Lynch, reports the Seattle Times.

The report says there may be a committee this season, but "expect Lynch to be the Chairman of the Board." Michael will likely be second, and Turbin will be third and play on passing downs.

Robert Turbin vs. Christine Michael an intriguing battle
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

With Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch coming off 400-plus touches, an intriguing battle for the backup spot is shaping up between Robert Turbin and Christine Michael, reports the Seattle Times.

Turbin excels in pass protection and the team trusted him to spell Lynch down the stretch. He averaged 3.4 yards on 77 regular-season carries. 

A second-round pick last year, the more explosive Michael finished his rookie season with 79 yards on 18 carries. He'll push Turbin in training camp.
