Seahawks

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said after Sunday’s game that rookie RB Rashaad Penny “busted out” for them.

“Today he busted out,” Carroll said, via the Seattle Times. “We’ve been challenging him to get right and to work at the right tempo and find what it’s like to be a pro, just teaching a young guy trying to figure it out … I thought today he needed it so badly. He knows he’s a great player. He just hasn’t been able to demonstrate it.
