He just put up 100+ yards in back to back weeks vs TB & SF but dude above isn't impressed.

Not sure if this has been posted but      Watching this and knowing they want to throw to him more makes me an excited Carson owner in PPR.

Carson is closer to AP than Penny is to Carson

Why the hell did Seattle draft Penny in the first if he doesn't fit their scheme at all lol

 

 

They changed their scheme to what it is because of Carson...

Penny was drafted after a year that Seattle was completely plagued by RB injuries and wanted to bring in someone to stabilize the backfield to avoid going through that again.  Penny was highly productive and didn't have injury troubles in college.  They liked Carson but didnt know at the time if he'd be ready to go at the start of the year.  Prosise pretty much has property on the injury report at this point.

That, and Penny was and still is "Carson insurance".

The RB merry-go-round was ridiculous after Lynch was gone. Carson was coming off a season-ending knee injury.

A team that calls itself "run-first"  drafts a RB high in that situation. Carson came back stronger, Penny had a few early set-backs. They love what Carson brings and that's pretty much the story.

Isn't it nice when preseason fantasy predictions actually come true? Carson is a big time running back on a really good offense. You really couldn't ask for a better situation. The rushing TD's will come too. He was pretty involved in the red zone tonight.

I don't think there is much to do with changing "scheme" at all.  Carson is the "tone setter" back that Pete covets much like Marshawn was.  Penny isn't as much of a bruiser and seems to flourish more in space and tries to bounce things outside far too much, but is still a good back - could be great if he puts it all together.  As it is, he's the type that gets 1-2 yards often mixed in with a long explosive run.  Carson regularly grinds out 3-5 yards, even if you don't get those long "explosive" runs with him.  Pete clearly prefers that consistent gain style as well as the "tone setting" that Carson brings with it - is also why Marshawn was such an anomaly to provide that grinding, bruising style but also possessed the ability to create long runs.

I thought it was just a broken leg/ankle? Those don't carry re-injury risk like knee injuries.

 

Seattle sure as hell needed defensive help more than it did first round RB insurance. It's just an all around bad pick in hindsight especially when they could have taken Chubb or Kerryon in the 2nd round.

Correct. It was a broken ankle.

Anyone else see Adrian Peterson in CC? Same exact type of runner, less explosive obviously. I love watching this dude grind out yards. Kid's a stud.

Yesss!!! The combination of power and shiftiness

Ya'll are smoking crack if you think Carson is even close to prime AP LOL

He said less explosive version. Carson got 1st and 2nd Gear but AP got 3rd and 4th Gear that’s why he breaks the long runs. The effort, power and short area quickness is there for Carson just not the next gear to break it open.

Hindsight is a heck of a teacher

No, it definitely isn't. You can clearly see that AP is head and shoulders above Carson in all of those categories lol

 

I get being hyped for a good RB but the AP comparison is ridiculous

Watch the first play and try and tell someone Carson is qualified to hold APs jockstrap.

Don’t want to dwell any more on what Peterson does with straps
