Yesterday we mentioned that there were a few other teams other than the Seattle Seahawks that were really interested in former West Virginia linebacker Bruce Irvin because of his pass rushing skills. Â One of those teams happened to be the New York Jets and they werenâ€™t happy when the Seattle Seahawks drafted him with the 15th overall pick.
According toÂ Len Pasquarelli of the Sports Xchange, right after the Seahawks selected Irvin, a Jets official called their â€śwar roomâ€ť and cursed them out because they had planned on taking him with the 16th overall pick.
I canâ€™t say Iâ€™m surprised that member of a classless organization like the Jets called another organization and cursed them out over a draft pick. Â This is the same team that celebrates AFC Championship game appearances.
BEST OF MAXIM
Some way, somehow out of all the alleged bad boys with character issues in this yearâ€™s draft, Bruce Irvin was the most coveted acquisition.
Publicly jaws dropped when the Seattle Seahawks took him the first round. Beyond his personal issues Irvin was seen as project player that can do one thing well and thatâ€™s speed rush the passer.

After this past weekendâ€™s NFL draft, itâ€™s obvious that the Seattle Seahawks will have a quarterback controversy going into training camp this season. General manager John Schneider clearly stated that the position isnâ€™t â€śset in stone.â€ť
â€śWe donâ€™t exactly have our quarterback position set in stone for the long run,â€ť said John Schneider.

The Seattle Seahawks selected quarterback Russell Wilson with the No. 75 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.
The Seahawks reeled in prized free agent quarterback Matt Flynn, but he is still yet to prove himself as an NFL starter - and the club took a flier on undersized dynamo Wilson, who has a cannon for an arm and stellar athletic skills. He may see action in specialty packages...
When watching the Seattle Seahawks trip and stumble through their 2011-12 NFL campaign, it never occurred to me that they were an average or better QB away from truly competing.
Their signing of free agent Green Bay Packers QB Matt Flynn was the right move, as they had no realistic hopes of landing Peyton Manning, or Andrew Luck or RGIII in the draft for that matter, and desperately...

PCJS Not Winning The Draft Popularity Contest
After all of the draft grades were counted and a consensus was taken on the ten picks in the Seattle SeahawksÂ 2012 draft, the majority of the comments that came back from most of the pundits had a common theme, â€śNot so Muchâ€ť.
In terms of filling their needs, the Seahawks not only met their bar, but exceeded it.
In terms of maximizingâ...
Greg Scruggs was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks in the 7th round.
Seattle Seahawks 3rd round draft pick QB Russell Wilson has signed with Raleigh-based French/West/Vaughan (FWV). Â FWV will handle all of Wilson's marketing, public relations, and endorsements.
Wilson joins a growing roster at FWV including NFL stars Arian Foster and Michael Vick, and former NFL All-Pro Simeon Rice. Â Apparently for FWV, Wilson was a perfect fit from the beginning...
We mentioned yesterday that the New York Jets were so disappointed that they missed out on draftingÂ former West Virginia linebacker Bruce Irvin that they called the Seattle Seahawks and cursed them out after they took him with the 15th overall pick.
The Jets didnâ€™t want to take IrvinÂ â€ťat No. 16, I can tell you that much,â€ť said Ryan. Â â€ťHeâ€™s a guy we did a lot of stuff...

Under The Hood: #PCJS
Ever wondered what was going on in the minds of Seattle SeahawksÂ head coach Pete Carroll and GM John Schneider?
This past weekend provided a little further insight.
Hereâ€™s their Moves during the draft.
Round 1: Pick 12 Traded down to 15 with Eagles. Eagles pick Fletcher Cox, PCJS pick Bruce Irvin, Jaye Howard, and Jeremy Lane
Round 2: Pick 43 Traded down...
This is the third draft for the John Schneider and Pete Carroll regime, and more so than the other two, this draft really went against the grain in terms of what the prognosticators thought the Seahawks should take.Â One thing about this regime so far; they are more likely to march to the beat of their own drum than to follow the pack.Â While there were a few needs the Seahawks...
