I don't know how to gauge preseason performance (62y on 6 carries against Minny? 5 carries, 31y against SD?) but I can inspect last year's games. He started three games against cupcakes at that time of the year- San Fran, Chi, StL. At the end of the season, he got 2 more starts, against Bal and Atl.

hmm... I looked all that up, intending to shoot down the admirably part down, but considering these five games were after Sea committed to the pass, that's not that bad. Considering Holmgren's purportedly committed to the run during the offseason, it could look even better.
