Do the Seahawks need help at outside linebacker?

Bruce Irvin, Malcom Smith and the rest of the Seahawks linebackers had a banner year. In the playoffs and Super bowl they dismantled any hopes for the Saints, Niners and Broncos to run the ball. You would think that the Seahawks are in a good position at linebacker, but if we’ve learned anything this offseason it’s that winning comes at a high price. Nearly a dozen free agents...

Seattle Seahawks defense will only get better now that Bruce Irvin is back

Through four games, the Seattle Seahawks are averaging some impressive totals, ranking second in points allowed with 11.8, sixth in total yards allowed with 300.2, fifth in pass yards allowed with 191.2 and 18th in rush yards allowed with 109.0. Combined with an offense averaging 27.2 points per game, it is easy to understand why […]

Bruce Irvin suspension creates opportunity for Seahawks’ UDFAs

Since the draft, I’ve been wondering which of the Seattle Seahawks’ un-drafted free-agents has the greatest chance of making the team. Bruce Irvin getting caught with dirty pee creates added opportunity for the linebackers and defensive ends. Irvin plays what Pete Carroll calls the Leo position: a hybrid LB/DE suited for an athlete fast enough for pass coverage, strong enough...

Seahawks GM John Schneider doesn’t stop when he sees red flags: ‘everybody has their issues’

The success the Seattle Seahawks had in 2012 came from solid drafting, and non-judgment. In a league where a bad 40 time drops you fast, an off the field history could keep a player off a draft board all together. However, GM John Schneider doesn’t feel that because a player has some ‘issues’ that they are deemed unworthy. The case of Bruce Irvin is a prime example, where...

Bruce Irvin earning respect around the league

When Seattle took DE Bruce Irvin in the first roiund everyone was in shock. I remember thinking what a great pick, because the Seahawks had a great scheme to put the thin passer rusher in. Well he is continuing to shine, yesterday he had two sacks in Week 5 and is up to 4.5 for the season.  The Seahawks have already posted 16 sacks in five games this year after managing just 33...

Bruce Irvin is enjoying proving his doubters wrong

When the Seattle Seahawks drafted defensive end Bruce Irvin with the 15th overall pick this past April many people questioned why the Seahawks took him so high. After another strong performance today, Irvin went on Twitter laughed at his doubters. I was a reach at 15 though! Haaa loving proving y’all wrong it’s only the beginning! — Bruce Irvin (@BIrvin_WVU11) October 8, 2012...

Bruce Irvin has been impressing the Seahawks

Getty Images According to Dan Arkush of, Seattle Seahawks first round pick Bruce Irvin has made a very good impression so far. “A lot of people thought he’d be a one-trick pony — just a pure speed edge rusher,” one daily team observer said of Irvin, the likely heir apparent at the “Leo” position to Clemons, who is entering his contract year and,...

NFL player forgets which team drafted him

Bruce Irvin of the Seattle Seahawks was being interviewed in his NFL locker room and thought he was a Washington Redskin instead of a Seattle Seahawk. Irvin responded with “I’m f#%ked up man. I’m f#%ked up”. You are going to want to go ahead and jump to the 3:20 mark of the video to catch this because it’s pretty boring until then. Irvin, you may want to get your team...

NFL Analysis: Love seeing the Seattle Seahawks signing Bruce Irvin!

Welcome home Bruce When the Seattle Seahawks selected Bruce Irvin with the 15th overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft I was critical of the pick. Ever since then he has been doing everything in his power to change my mind and others like me. I did not hate the pick like some of the others so maybe I am more easily swayed but from everything I have heard from or about him since being...

The Jets cussed out the Seahawks for drafting the red hot Bruce Irvin.

Some way, somehow out of all the alleged bad boys with character issues in this year’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 that’s speed rush the passer.
