way i see it is he'll come in on third downs or 2nd and longs where we suspect pass. He'll be told to beat his man 1 on 1 and take ryans head off. WE are playing on turf, in a dome, where speed counts. and if this guy still has his speed, and some motivation, he could make an impact. He'll probably only play 10-15 snaps unless he just impresses in practice this week. but he's in shape, has some nfl experience and the speed that the FO likes. How hard is it to chase ryan around the pocket a few times.

Sounds good to me. id rather have a few guys rotating in to keep em all fresh anywayz. ATL passes more than it runs. im on board

I'm actually glad they're bringing in an older player. I'm guessing at age 33 he knows how to prepare himself for a game and won't try and play beyond himself like a young up and comer might try and do. We just need solid play win minimal mistakes.

Two words: CHASE BLACKBURN.
Three words: SUPER BOWL VICTORY.
PATRICK CHUKWURAH <=> CHASE BLACKBURN (Seahawks version)
One word: TANZANIA (had to throw that in)

The ONLY reason the NY Giants were Super Bowl Champs was the incredible play by Chase Blackburn, covering Rob Gronkowski on a Brady scramble, sprinting back after being beaten, and then out-jumping Gronk for the ball, and coming down with the pick. Unbelievable!! NOT supposed to happen!! Who is this guy? That play, by CHASE BLACKBURN, more than any other allowed the Giants to win. (Just barely more so than the Mario Manningham sideline tightrope play)
http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2012 ... ckbur.html

I just get the feeling this guy PATRICK CHUKWURAH will be involved in a key play somewhere, a sack, cause a fumble, recover a fumble and return it for a score. Somewhere along the road, he will make a key play. I trust the FO judgment on this. I expect they will only ask him to do things he can do, and use him as a situational pass rusher on clear passing situations.
Two (bad) words: Etric Pruitt.
Three (bad) words: (Seahawks) Super Bowl Loss.
That's the difference between the John Schneider front office and the Tim Ruskell front office.

Patrick Chukwurah for the win. Book it!!

Where's Sharkhawk? Our WAC/MWest scout may have more info.


Guy was a freaking unstoppable monster in college. I believe the last game I saw in person was a BYU/Wyoming game in which he was playing. Guy was a total beast. This was years ago, and this was old school MWC ball. I don't know how he's developed since, but I thought he was going to be a machine in the NFL when I saw him play in college. I haven't watched him play since then that I can recall. But he reminded me of a guy that played for San Diego State that ended up being really good just a bit before and he played for the Packers. I'm trying to remember his name.... crap.... who was that dude. Initials were "KGB". Kabeer G something Bimela? What the heck. That guy. He had a high motor in college and was a destructive force. Chukwurah was like that guy. I thought he'd be a better pro than KGB. I was wrong on that one apparently, but he is right up there with guys that really impressed me over the years in the WAC and later MWC. Guys like Kirk Morrison, Dave Hawthorne, Brett Keisel, Paul Kruger (always disrupting in the backfield), Jerry Hughes (similar guy... ALWAYS in the backfield), Tank Carter, Eric Weddle (although he was a DB, the guy was everywhere and was a supreme blitzer).

If I had to compare him to a Seahawk (which is what I always do when watching college players). I always thought Chukwurah was like Rufus Porter. A smallish guy that was probably more suited to LBer size wise, but had a high motor and would just get in the backfield consistently and wreak havoc no matter how big the guy on the other side of the line was. He seemed instinctive. Like Jerry Hughes, he just knew where to be and was immediately in the QB's face.

I guess now they're depending on his smarts and his knowledge of lots of defensive systems and having the veteran tricks and such to come in and play if needed. I don't think it's a bad move. He's not going to come in and be Rufus Porter of course, but that's how he played in college. I am surprised now that I think back that he didn't have a really good NFL career, because he was one of those guys that seemed like he'd come in and just get to the QB, like KGB seemed to. To me, you could flip-flop either guy in college and I'd think you were getting a really good DE. Of course KGB had a much better career and was pretty dominant for a few years. I think he messed up his back or neck or some business though and kind of faded away.

In Pete we should trust!

All this guy needs to do is get in Ryan's face a few times and contain quiz. Let's not forget how much help he will have around him. If the FO can find something special in this guy, then we should stand by them.


We'll see Sunday (if this guy gets any playing time), what he's really made of.

***ETA***
Thanks for the breakdown Sharkhawk! I think knowing multiple schemes will be very important for this guy to step in and make an impact. If he still has the moves, it'd be nice to let him teach up Bruce on some of the little things.

A little bit of info...

Just don't say they're signing him off the couch. He may have been out of the league a few years, but this is a 250-pound personal trainer with less than 5 percent body fat. He led the United Football League in sacks the previous two seasons.

don't see why i should start doubting the FO now... he looks like a beast, looks good in that UNI except for the leg warmers, not sure i can get behind those.... maybe he can teach Irvin a spin move or two

This guy looks like a beast. Lets hope he can come in and play decent and not make any huge mistakes and/or bone-headed penalties.

No one that we would sign for this role would play too much, they probably just went after the best athlete they have to throw in on long yard passing downs if need be.

I don't even care if the FO made a mistake. They have hit SO many good ones in this three year period, I am giving them 3 strikes for sure and probably more.

Dude sure looks like part though. It would be borderline hilarious if he actually does some damage.

I know one thing, If Clem were in this game, it would be a feast. The pressure would be there. Our guys are deadly fast on dry turf and it surely works for us when it takes time for dudes like White and Jones to get downfield. The longer Browner has to cover anyone, the more concern I have. I hope he got some legs under him following the Skins game (I am sure he did)

This is the best news this morning. Dude is from nowhere, no one knows about him, and we're all pretty damn sure he's going to be AWESOME (whether or not he actually will be). I love it.

After watching that video, I'm a lot more comfortable with this. Sure, I have full confidence in our front office's decision-making process and choices, but that shows he's at the very least in top notch shape and fired up to play.

Pretty sure she was many months pregnant. So a bit of fat is kinda expected.

Damn I'm a sucker for feel good African success stories. If he makes a big play, I think I'll lose my mind! And he played for one of my favorite schools?! Gravy.

I love this move more than I probably should.

That was my thought. Look at the rest of her....face, legs, arms, etc. The only place she's fat is just her midsection......pregnant would be my first guess.

It seems bizarre but I just can't doubt Schneider anymore, Paul Allen needs to send down a mandate to make sure that Schneider never leaves our team because he is just ridiculous at finding talent where others can't.

Going to laugh if this guy comes in and gets 3 sacks, a forced fumble in the game.

This signing is far more about taking Irvin's spot on special teams than anything else. Irvin has not made many plays on special teams, but he has an integral role in our kickoff coverage making sure to set the edge on the outside forcing the returner up the middle. If he does see time as the pass rush specialist any play he makes is just icing on the cake as long as his kick coverage discipline is there.

Didn't he block a kick or recover one?

Biggest thing this move tells me is that Seattle is very confident in Irvin and Scruggs. Sucks that Jones and Clemons are out though.

I'm trying to remember his name.... crap.... who was that dude. Initials were "KGB". Kabeer G something Bimela? What the heck. That guy. He had a high motor in college and was a destructive force. Chukwurah was like that guy. I thought he'd be a better pro than KGB. I was wrong on that one apparently, but he is right up there with guys that really impressed me over the years in the WAC and later MWC. Guys like Kirk Morrison, Dave Hawthorne, Brett Keisel, Paul Kruger (always disrupting in the backfield), Jerry Hughes (similar guy... ALWAYS in the backfield), Tank Carter, Eric Weddle (although he was a DB, the guy was everywhere and was a supreme blitzer).

If I had to compare him to a Seahawk (which is what I always do when watching college players). I always thought Chukwurah was like Rufus Porter. A smallish guy that was probably more suited to LBer size wise, but had a high motor and would just get in the backfield consistently and wreak havoc no matter how big the guy on the other side of the line was. He seemed instinctive. Like Jerry Hughes, he just knew where to be and was immediately in the QB's face.

I guess now they're depending on his smarts and his knowledge of lots of defensive systems and having the veteran tricks and such to come in and play if needed. I don't think it's a bad move. He's not going to come in and be Rufus Porter of course, but that's how he played in college. I am surprised now that I think back that he didn't have a really good NFL career, because he was one of those guys that seemed like he'd come in and just get to the QB, like KGB seemed to. To me, you could flip-flop either guy in college and I'd think you were getting a really good DE. Of course KGB had a much better career and was pretty dominant for a few years. I think he messed up his back or neck or some business though and kind of faded away.


Who has it better than us? We got a MWC/WAC scout. Homeboy just spouted off a scouting report on a 2001 draftee from Wyoming.

Awesome.

Bandit packages which I suspect we will see much of in this game. Depending who we would play next if we win, he could be released after the game to go after a different type of DE that would be more run stuff oriented.

If this guy even gets one sack, or forces a bad throw by Ryan, I will mark the F*** out!!! Yes that will be the biggest FU to the league of all time IMO

Didn't he block a kick or recover one?


No. It was Morgan, or maybe Malcom Smith that blocked the punt against Dallas. Irvin was close to it and may have partially blocked it himself, but one of the other guys got to it first.

Beat out Edwards, Maybin and LaBoy. It is a little funny.

Malcolm Smith got the punt block against Dallas.

I have actually been hoping that Carroll or the Special Teams coach would finally allow Irvin to try to block field goals off the edge. They had him lined up in the middle early in the season and trying to jump through the middle with his quickness, but I guarantee with his speed off the edge he could block kicks off the edge laying out the block them, but they haven't used him that way.

If he does, the Tanzania Safari has to make a pitstop in Nigeria!


That's a LONG trip... and we'd have to take the ferry at Kinshasa.

Ok, I'm in.
