Not shocked. The Seahawks O-Line, specifically the interior O-Line, has been bottom third of the league for multiple seasons. The Seahawks had a big play RB in Penny, but he missed significant time and the back-up RBs weren't great. Walker is a big play RB and Charbonnet isn't great. The Seahawks haven't had a ground 'n pound RB for some time. Defense was the priority of the last Draft so I expect the Seahawks to continue struggling with their red zone rushing attack. I felt Waldron did ok with the running game available to him but I also felt his use of RBs in the passing game hurt the Seahawks.
 
We had an OC who didn't want to run the ball. They were also one of the worst Redzone Offenses in the NFL.

The OFF wasn't perfect but it was a perfectly capable OFF that could have been better.

It needs to get WAY better. This has frustrated me to no end for awhile now.
 
Ken Walker is a small outside zone back, he is not a good short yardage back. Yet they continued to feature him and hammer him up the gut like he is Marshawn Lynch in those situations. Charbs should get more carries as the bigger back in those spots. We shall see how the new staff handles it.
