Found September 23, 2012 on Pro Football Zone:
PLAYERS: Bruce Irvin
TEAMS: Seattle Seahawks

Even though it’s only week three of the NFL regular season, Seattle Seahawks rookie linebacker Bruce Irvin has yet to show everyone why he was taken in the middle of the first round of this past April’s draft.

“They say they are seeing progress, but just not seeing results,” said one team insider, per ProFootballWeekly.com. “They are not panicking. They realize how raw he is and are willing to let him grow and develop in practice.”

You can never predict when a player will break out and establish themselves as a legit NFL player.  All the Seahawks can do right now is hope that Irvin will show up as soon as possible.

You know the story: he was not a first round pick; he doesn’t have the measurables that impress scouts; he was expected to be a third QB behind newly-signed Matt Flynn or incumbent Tarvaris...

Green Bay Packers vs. Seattle Seahawks prediction & week 3 preview

Prime time showdown in Sea-town I don’t think the snow will be falling like it was the last time these two teams met up on Monday Night Football, but one thing is for sure, one team will be leaving Seattle with a losing record.

Packers hope to expose Wilson's inexperience

GREEN BAY, Wis. There will no doubt be at least a small group of Wisconsin residents who will be somewhat torn while watching Monday night's game between the state's beloved Packers and the Russell Wilson-led Seattle Seahawks.

The weekly Seahawks Infirmary for Week 3

Monday Night Pick: Green Bay Packers vs. Seattle Seahawks
