Seahawks OC Darrell Bevell backtracks on his RB committee comments

Committee? What committee?
Last week, Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said the team was going to employ a committee attack between running backs Marshawn Lynch @MoneyLynch and Christine Michael @Cmike33. But apparently, his committee won't last into September. Bevell said today that he didn't mean the Seahawks would use an RBBC during the season, only in OTAs.

Fantasy Analysis:

Uh, OK. I wonder if Bevell was told by Pete Carroll or someone else to put the cat back in the bag. A committee attack is still a prudent plan of attack. Lynch touched the ball almost 1,100 times over the past three seasons including playoffs, and Michael is a young, explosive running back. Very, very explosive. As it is, we're back to Lynch being regarded as an undisputed workhorse. Why would the Seahawks do anything different?
