Offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer wasn't any more revealing than Pete Carroll was about how much Rashaad Penny will factor into the Seahawks' offense after his breakout game. Schottenheimer said Chris Carson will continue to start, as expected, now that he's back from a one-game absence. He also echoed Carroll's comments about how Seattle's coaches have been pushing Penny, saying: "He'll always be involved in the plan. We're hard on him. We're excited about him. He's still a young player. He still has those times in the meetings where it's like, 'Rashaad, are you listening?' like most young players do. The season is long. I think it was really good for his confidence to go out there and do what he did and to play well and perform well and I think his assignment grade was really, really good. I think he's always involved and I think now he feels like 'OK, I'm involved, I can help, I can play' and I think that kind of pushes some of the pressure away from him."
