  1. New highlight video my made of our Dline from last year. Hopefully it can get us hype for the line we have now. With the new additions Takk and Vic just might look even better. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qq6sx7fznCY
  2. Prior to the hiring of Dan Quinn, it seemed that many of his Pro-Rex Ryan detractors believed that he wasn't this defensive guru that some had made him out to be. They argued that the success of the vaunted Seahawks defense was in fact, largely down to Pete Carroll's defensive philosophy and man-management rather than Quinn's individual skills as a coordinator. I'm pretty sure that one of our own TATF'ers even sourced the opinion of Seahawks fans on their message board and they more or less concurred with this theory. However, in light of the recent news about Bruce Irvin, I'm not sure if this portrayal of DQ is entirely accurate. If, as Robert Klemko and Albert Breer suggest, lots of Seahawks players are openly and privately lobbying for a move to the ATL, then it would seem that DQ played more of a significant role in the success of the Seahawks than the pro-Rex contingent would have had us believe. Why else would guys like Irvin want to trade playing for a super-bowl winning franchise littered with HOF candidates for Atlanta if this wasn't the case? If Carroll really was the architect behind Seattle's defensive success, then why do "so many players" want to leave to be with DQ? Was DQ really the mastermind or is this merely just a case of Seahawks players using the Falcons to lobby for larger contracts? Link: https://twitter.com/RobertKlemko/status/598930176274083840
  3. Sorry if this was already come up. I'm just wondering if there is any chance that the Seahawks just trade Irvin to the Falcons this offseason? I doubt they would put the Franchise Tag on him since they didn't want to pick up his 5th year option. So if he serious about walking away why not trade him now? They would get something back rather than losing him for nothing and they could prevent a situation from turning sour and having him become a locker room cancer.
  4. http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1110508-bruce-irvin-arrested-nfl-draft-prospect-arrested-for-destruction-of-property via BR Former West Virginia University defensive end Bruce Irvin has been arrested in Morgantown, W. Va., for destruction of property. According to the West Virginia Metro News, the defensive end prospect reportedly broke a sign at the Jimmy John's sandwich shop on High Street and has been charged with destruction of property and disorderly conduct. While the incident is bad enough to blemish a reputation, the timing of the incident couldn’t have been any worse. With Irvin running an amazing 4.5 seconds in the 40-yard dash, teams were lining up around the block to talk to the pass-rushing specialist. Depending on the facts about the incident that come out, this could be the kind of blow that, coupled with a poor effort in his final college season, could send the young man’s draft stock plummeting. Irvin has been all over the board the last two seasons at West Virginia. While his 14 sacks in 2010 had many people stunned at how good he could be, a subpar 2011 that saw only 8.5 sacks and him sitting in the second half of a few games has the same people on the fence about his skills. The young defensive lineman comes from a rough background but has made himself over into the man that steps onto that field every game. With that said, teams will be concerned about the possibility of success bringing him back into a bad lifestyle. As in every case like this, it’s important for teams to check all of the facts before passing judgment, but the fact the young defensive prospect even put himself in that position is enough to warrant some legitimate concern.
