Seahawks’ rookie Christine Michael continues to impress

Seahawks running back Christine Michael certainly hasn’t let anyone down this preseason.

Michael put together another good game on Friday night by racking up 97 yards on 11 carries and a touchdown.

Michael is up to 27 preseason carries for 186 yards (6.89 YPC) with the one catch. The second-round pick needs to clean up his pass pro, but there is no question he’s a more skilled runner than Robert Turbin, and is at least close to Marshawn Lynch. Michael is the preferred Lynch handcuff in Seattle’s backfield. He runs with long speed, sensational cutting ability, and natural power.

    And Turbin’s pass protection wasn’t good either. He completely whiffed his responsibility on Matthew’s sack.
