Chunk runs are generally considered those of 10 yards or more. NFL.com only has historical data on runs of 20+ yards, so we will use that for reviewing the Seahawks progress. It was surprising to see the Seahawks took a big step back in this category last season, considering their overall rushing output improved. They only had eight chunk runs last season, down from twelve the year prior.
The Seahawks ranked 17th in explosive pass plays and 21st in explosive runs last season. That simply will not cut it. This becomes a key area for the team to improve in 2012. The addition of Robert Turbin, an improved offensive line and a player like Russell Wilson should make instant impact.
