Robert Turbin, Christine Michael shoulder the load in preseason opener


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2014) With Marshawn Lynch sidelined, Seahawks running backs Robert Turbin and Christine Michael shouldered the load during Thursday's preseason opener against the Broncos in Denver.

Turbin got the start but didn't make much of an impact. He played two series with the first-team offense and finished with four carries for 5 yards. He also caught one pass for a gain of 3 yards.

Michael didn't get his first touch with the first-team offense until the start of the second quarter and scored on a 1-yard run on that same drive. He played into the first series of the third quarter and finished with seven carries for 16 yards and a touchdown. He also caught three passes for 12 yards.

Seahawks won't change philosphy if Marshawn Lynch doesn't show


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) 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.


Christine Michael headed for bigger role


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/21/2014) Seahawks running back Christine Michael heads into training camp looking to build off an already impressive offseason, reports the Seattle Times.

The report says Michael's play this offseason "did nothing to quell the idea he will get regular carries this season. The only question is how many." Michael is expected to be No. 2 on the depth chart behind Marshawn Lynch.


Seahawks coordinator backtracks on committee comment


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/9/2014) 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
(6/9/2014) 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.


Seahawks to use 'running back by committee'


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/5/2014) Speaking during a team Town Hall event, Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said Wednesday that he intends to not lean on one running back like Marshawn Lynch but rather utilize a number of them in 2014. Carroll added that the team wants to remain focused on the run. 

"We are going to be running back by committee," Bevell said according to ESPN. "We really like what Christine Michael is doing right now."

Michael is the Seahawks' second-year running back who averaged 4.4 yards per carry in very minimal play last season but came into the league with high accolades (and an injury) from his days at Texas A&M. He's been impressive in OTA workouts while Lynch has skipped the voluntary practices.

"We want to run the football whenever we want to," Carroll said per the Seattle Times. "We are an absolutely committed running football team."


Christine Michael making strong impression


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/4/2014) Seahawks running back Christine Michael is making a strong impression during OTA workouts, reports ESPN.

The report says Michael is getting plenty of reps since Marshawn Lynch has elected to skip OTAs so far, and Michael is making the most of it. Coach Pete Carroll has walked up to Michael a few times after his runs to give him high fives and let him know how much he appreciates what Michael is doing in practice.

Michael is expected to be No. 2 on the depth chart behind Lynch this season. 


Carroll high on Christine Michael


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/21/2014) Seahawks coach Pete Carroll has high hopes for second-year running back Christine Michael. He said at the NFL Scouting Combine on Friday that Michael could be Seattle's breakout star in 2014.

"He's really talented and he's a really exciting guy in our program. Probably has the most breakout potential out of anybody because you haven't seen much of him yet," Carroll said via Pro Football Talk. "We've seen him, we know that he can do really special stuff. He played in a very competitive position. It was hard to get in there with Marshawn (Lynch) and Robert Turbin there. But he'll give those guys a real run when we come back to work. He'll grow a lot from Year 1 to Year 2. We all know in our program that he's going to be very explosive and a really exciting guy. He showed that in his chances that he had."

Part of the reason Michael could have a breakout season in 2014 is that Lynch could be headed for a downturn in production after 400-plus touches in 2013. That could open the door for Michael to play a bigger role next year.


Robert Turbin vs. Christine Michael an intriguing battle


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/10/2014) 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.
