Seahawks HC Pete Carroll says, even with Percy Harvin, his offense will 'attack with running game'

For a team that registered the most rushing attempts and fewest passing attempts last year, the arrival of Percy Harvin @Percy_Harvin will surely change the Seahawks' offense. So, how much?
According to head coach Pete Carroll, none at all.
"This is not a change at all," Carroll said during a Wednesday radio interview. "... We're gonna do exactly what we wanna do with continuing to send the message about how physical we are, how we attack with the running game and fit off that."

Fantasy Analysis:

OK, whatever. The Seahawks are going to throw more often this season. When you have a top-10 WR in your mitts, you can do that. Marshawn Lynch @MoneyLynch will still be a workhorse back, fantasy owners don't need to worry him. Carroll's team can still be physical without going to the ground 33.5 times -- Seattle's 2012 average rushes per games.
Harvin's presence will mean fewer targets for Sidney Rice @sidneyrice, Golden Tate @ShowtimeTate and Doug Baldwin @DougBaldwinJr, but more throws from Russell Wilson @DangeRussWilson. It would be a waste of incredible talent if the Seahawks' offense didn't adapt somewhat for one of the NFL's most explosive and versatile players.
