Found September 18, 2012 on DraftAce:
PLAYERS: Bruce Irvin
TEAMS: Seattle Seahawks

Seattle Seahawks 1st-round pick Bruce Irvin recorded his first career sack on Sunday against the Cowboys and is developing into an asset as a pass rush specialist.

Through two games Irvin has been used as a pass rusher on 53 of his 64 snaps (82.8%).

While Irvin has done a nice job in this role (he’s recorded a sack, hit or pressure on 9.1% of his pass rush plays), their use of him in this role begs the question: is it worth drafting a pass-rush specialist in the 1st round?

No matter how well Irvin performs in this role, the fact remains he’s a part-time player. He certainly hasn’t looked like a bust, but until he develops into a a true three-down lineman it will be hard to give the Seahawks a strong grade for their selection.

Golden Tate lights up Sean Lee

I know many people believe that the Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate should be fined for lighting up Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee during yesterday’s game.  But I’ll break down why the hit is clean in my opinion. Lee was not a defenseless player. Tate hit him straight on and not on the side. Lee failed to guard himself and keep his head on a swivel. Tate didn’t lead with...
