Where would we be without an elite defense this year? I shudder to think.

I hope the offense shows some more improvement next week, no more regressions. If we can start scoring in the red zone this team is going to be scary good. We've been in the red zone so much/..... if we could just start sealing the deal.

I know the struggles have been frustrating as hell but I don't think everyone realizes how close this team is...... it really comes down to scoring once we get in the red zone and our defense is going to give us ALOT of chances all year.

I just feel like we're on the edge of a breakthrough..... it's coming.

Entire defense was top notch today! I can't believe they held Carolina to 3 offensive points!

The sack / fumble was awesome, but when he swatted Newton's leg and brought him down like a Gumby doll, that was incredible! I wasn't for this move on draft day and had my doubts...I'll gladly eat those questions with his play of late. :th2thumbs:

Ditto. That was a huge play and the kid will likely surpass my expectations for him. From a sack perspective, I felt he needed no less than 8 in his rookie year to show that he was worth the pick. He will surpass that and equally impressive to me is his motor. I think he must have played every snap in pre-season and he just goes and goes.

Desires to learn, has blazing speed and is absolutely relentless. Barring the I word ( I won't say it), he's gonna' be a monster for a long time. OCs will start game planning for him starting now. Good luck with that.

Another two I'd throw into this conversation are Okung and Carpenter.... Okung has been a little hit n miss this year but he's panning out to be a good player and Carpenter has flat out stunned me with his miraculous recovery and more than solid play since he came back.

Anyway, back on topic.... BRUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCE. Love that dude! Bruce and CLem, such a great combo.



no false starts for Okung today? he must have got sum... :D

Too bad Okung got the iffy holding penalty. I see a definite improvement the games he's played in so far this season. GiImmaGuacamole deservedly rode the pine for awhile. I hope that helps him get his head straight.

I'm not impressed.

Upshaw would've already had 8 sacks this far into the season.

That's a nice little stat from Hawkblogger. Bruce becomes the 14th player in NFL history to reach 4.5 sacks in his first 5 games

Not only that. Hawkblogger also pointed out that Courtney Upshaw, Melvin Ingram, Quintan Coples, and Chandler Jones have combined for fewer sacks (3.5) than BRUUUUUUUCEEEE.

To be fair, Jones has three and Upshaw has .5 (Don't forget he dropped to round 2).

I really wanted Chandler Jones picked, and seeing his success in NE would make it really tough to accept the Irvin pick if Irvin wasn't playing amazing right now. So glad he is playing great!

I am one who was critical of Mr. Irvin. I never commented that he was a bust however I expressed my concerns early on and hoped things would change but didn't have a lot of optimism.

I am proud today to whole heartedly eat my serving of crow. In fact I am enjoying licking my plate clean.

Congrats to you Bruce. It is my pleasure to have my concerns erased by your play over the last 4 games. Keep the fire burning young man......keep the fire burning.

I have quite a few friends that really wanted to see Irvin turn out to be a bust simply because they didn't think he should have been picked in the first round. I'm glad they're eating crow. It may be too early to call, but he certainly has the intangibles of an elite defensive end. He may be about 20+ pounds underweight for a DE but his speed, finesse and ability to break through blocks is ridiculous. He doesn't even need a good jump and he's alright on the far edge of OT's. I'm surprised he hasn't drawn some holding penalties.

Just wait till Irvin gets matched up against a really slow offensive tackle. He will chew them up.

Coples?.....We don't need no stinking Coples !!!!!!

Bruce only played on 25 of the 52 snaps on defense and wreaked havok.

He is a BUST !!!!!!!!

I was thinking the other night about how each time Bruce gets a sack or makes a big play, I get far more excited than maybe I would normally. You really have to cheer for the kid after all the comments after the draft about how he was undeserving of such consideration.

Loved watching Bruce go to work on Cam Newton. As long as our secondary keeps receivers bottled up, the sackfest is going to continue. I'm practicing my BRRRUUUUUCE yells for the game.

Real question though is.... Will WALTER FOOTBALL ever publicly eat a big heaping helping of crow, or will he just conveniently forget all the BS Hateraide he was pouring out on draft day and beyond.

Quote:
2012 NFL Draft Individual Grades:

15. Bruce Irvin, DE/OLB, West Virginia: MATT MILLEN LSD-LACED KIELBASA ORGY WITH 200 USDA MEN Grade
Wow!!! What the hell are the Seahawks doing? You pick one-trick ponies in the third or fourth round. And you pick one-trick ponies who get arrested for robbery and defacing public property in the sixth or seventh round. Did Seattle write the wrong name down on the card? If they did mean to pick him, did they even watch him on tape? He's an athlete playing football. This is one of the worst draft picks of all time.

http://walterfootball.com/offseason2012sea.php?id=41

Those are big huge words there Walter. The amount of crow you're going to need to eat will be collosal...

Random thought... Do any of the busts in Canton have dreads? Cuz that will look Rad.

Don't bother. the hits to his website will just up his ad revenue (as that place is totally spammed by ads). Best thing to do is just ignore him...

There s NO way Okung (#76) held on that play... however Paul McQuistan (#67) looked liked he did.
