Carson in Week 3: 32 rushes, 102 yards, 1 touchdown, 2 receptions, 22 yards
Penny in Week 3:
The Seahawks rode Carson in Week 3 with Penny getting stapled to the bench after he misplayed a handoff early in the game. Carson is averaging 3.9 yards per carry to Penny's 2.2, so it seemed like Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll wanted to eliminate any possible mistakes for his then 0-2 team.
Mission accomplished, Pete.
After Week 3, it's easily Carson in the lead for the starting job, and that means he's the better play here by a mile. Maybe they'll work Penny back into the rotation as the season progresses, but at this point, I'd rather have Carson in my lineup.
