    How this contest unfolds could depend on what kind of offensive packages the New York Jets use. For instance, the San Francisco 49ers didn’t want Irvin on the field and only ran three wide receiver sets on 13.3% of offensive plays. The end result? Irvin was only on the field for 12 snaps, picking up one sack and nothing else.

    The Seahawk has had an indifferent rookie year but has done a solid job of generating consistent pressure, leading to him having the third-highest Pass Rushing Productivity score of all 4-3 defensive ends. With that in mind, the Jets may want to use less than the 46.4% of three wide receiver sets they’ve used in their last three games. Otherwise, Austin Howard — owner of our fourth-lowest pass blocking grade of all right tackles (and third lowest in Pass Blocking Efficiency) — might be in for a long day.

    Beatdown Probability – The game situation will dictate. If the Jets fall behind it’s going to be near impossible to stop Irvin from getting at Howard.


    This stuff just warms my heart. BRUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCEE!

  • What the hell is an 'indifferent' rookie season?

    He has, what 6 or 7 sacks so far after 9 games?

    Sounds pretty decent to me.

    I think it is 5 but still good considering the number of snaps

    Since our best pass rusher has had 11 sacks in 16 games the past two seasons, 5 after 9 game is a pretty good pace IMHO.

    Wow, really enlightening. Just watch him during run plays. It has nothing to do with being on the sidelines.

  • He needs to hit the weights during the off season. I'd love to see him get stronger at the point of attack so he can be on the field more.

  • I'm sure they'll have him add 15 pounds of muscle to his frame. But you gotta admit, 7 sacks on the season now is pretty damn good. Tied for first on the team with Clem.

    They have only disappeared if you're only focused on sacks. Pressure is just as important.

  • He's gotten a good batch of sacks thus far.

    He may no be an every down player, but if he can come up big on sacks, it's filling a need.

  • Also have to point out that Quinton Coples, who many wanted with our pick, has done next to nothing so far this year and has played much more regularly than our boy Bruce who has almost 4 times as many sacks as Coples (7 vs 2).

    I was a Coples fan but I think Pete could have otivated him. Quinton has all the physical talent in the world, he just doesn't apply himself.

    No way, Quinton Coples has that nasty tattoo. And Irvin's a boss in this defense.

  • Irvin is coming along beautifully and doing what has been asked of him. Does he have more to offer? Yes. Can he improve? Yes. Was he an upgrade to what we had before? Hell to the YES. Hopefully he continus to evolve his game, as many of our other rookies have done, and he becomes that every-down guy. But as it is, I see no grounds for complaints regarding Bruce Irvin.

  • After we re-signed Clem, we knew that Irvin would be a situational pass rusher and not much else this year.

    He's doing pretty good at that role. He's supposed to be the LEO of the future IIRC, but with Clem healthy and going strong, Bruce has time to work his way into being an every down player.

  • I don't know. It seams to me that we get abused so badly on third downs is because Red is on the sidelines and Bruce is
    in the game. Why couldn't we have red in the game and have Bruce rush from more of a linebacker position?

    We usually do, Red is usually in their with Jones as the rushing DT's, with Bruce and Clem as the rushing ends.

  • I could be wrong. I was thinking red is jogging off the field alot on third downs. I am gonna have to watch the game again. There is also alot of Branch and McDonald sightings. It looked to me like Bruce was the DE in the third down package much like Brock used to be.

    If you're happy with Coples, then I guess you'd also be happy with him getting absolutely no pass rush in this scheme, no?
