Bruce Irvin, what a bust.

  • He's doing great so far. Biggest play of his career. Says a lot to come up big on the last play of the game (minus kneel downs).

  • Every year some tool calls one or two of our rookies a bust after a couple pre-season games... its silly.

    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.

  • I love his progression so far. As he gets better and better, we might see him in some run situations; his speed off the edge could be disruptive in the backfield.

    I also love how it disproves all the doubters. I don't know how many times it has to be said, but the preseason basically means nothing. You can see some trends, but that's it. The Seahawks have moved Irvin around, twisted him inside, and rushed him standing up, inside of Jones...all things they didn't want to show in the preseason. He's gonna be good if he keeps this up.

    I still can't believe how damn explosive and fast he is.

  • At 4.5 sacks thru 5 games, Irvin is on pace for 14 sacks over a 16 game schedule.

    FYI, Clemons, with 5.5 thru today, is on pace for 17 sacks, tho that may be skewed by his result from the GB game.

  • 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.

    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.

    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.

    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 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.
