Wagner added that the addition of Lynch definitely gives the team a little energy to see a guy like that, a guy people look up to, a guy who has so much history here, so much history throughout the leaguenot just on the field but off the fieldto have a guy like that come in the room and watch him run the ball again, itll be fun.

Luke Willson, who played with Lynch for three seasons, recognized that Lynchs signing is affecting more people than just those who will go to work with him this week.

Im sure the citys buzzing right now, as they should be, Willson said. Its going to be really exciting on Sunday to see 24 rolling. Itll be pretty sweet.

Added Carroll, Im not surprised, about how Seahawks fans have celebrated this news. He has impacted a lot of people around here, people who love the Seahawks. He has been something very special, so Im thrilled for the fans that theyre having fun with it and all of that, and Ill be really thrilled if he knocks out about 110 in the ballgame.

As for what is realistic for Lynch and Turbin this week, Carroll said he needs to see them in practice this week before knowing that, but also noted that rookie Travis Homer is ready to take on a bigger role, as he was forced to do last week when Carson and Prosise left the game with injuries in the second quarter, leaving Homer as the only available running back the rest of the way.

Travis is ready to go, Carroll said. Hes knows everything. Hes been through our system for the whole year. He showed that he was ready to play football and he did a good job in the game. We lean on him because of his background with us and his toughness and his speed and his play making. Were pleased to have that opportunity. Thats good fortune to have him ready to go. Well just fit the guys in. Give me a couple days here. This is the first day.

The Seahawks have changed offensive coordinators and offensive line coaches since Lynch and Turbin last played for Seattle, but Carroll said that while terminology has changed, there are enough similarities in the two systems that they should be able to get up to speed quickly.

Theres a lot of similarities, Carroll said. For the most part, its similar. Its more similar than it isnt. Theres terminology thats tacked onto stuff in motions and formations and things like that that are some new things that he has to pick up. The fundamental part of it, its very much the same.
