The TEs play a big part of the zone blocking system. Carlson was not getting it. Next year under Mora , the same senerio, ex lineman/players/analyst were saying the biggest problem with the Seahawks attempt at zone blocking was the play of the TE. The whole scheme breaks down when the TE does not do his job. Come the next year, we bring in Zack Miller. Eight games latter, Lynch is running wild and the whole blocking system is working. Miller is a big part of this success. The man earns his pay check. Tom Cable was smart to convince Pete to sign this player.
I was not aware of this at all but in hindsight it did click when Miller came on board. Really good post man and if this is indeed true, you can bet your bottom dollar Miller will be a Seahawk next year, contract be damned. Oh, but don't forget some of it was also Marshawn going to Cable and asking for help with what he could do to make it work too. That's been reported on numerous occasions.
