I like to hear it. Not Clemmons injury of course, but some creativity in pressure packages. I am intrigued to say the least with the idea of Scruggs at LDE.


I'm thinking the one (Clemons) injury will alter the roles of at least 3 players. That's a big impact.



Big, but not necessarily negative. Of course, not implying you meant to shine it in a negative light. Next man, or three, up.

Well, the real interesting thing is, except for a quarters worth of snaps in the Redskins game, the Falcons will have no tape on how the Seahawks Defense Line will now play without Clemons in the lineup. This frees Gus Bradley and Pete Carroll to come up with some interesting changes that the Falcons can't prepare for or predict.

I hope.

I have a soft spot for Bruce because of the thrashing he took on draft day. If he took down Ryan 5 times, I wouldn't be too terribly displeased.

BRUUUUUUUUUUUCEEEEEE

Supposedly, this is what they drafted him for long term. Pete's scheme calls for an "undersized" DE playing LEO. That's what Irvin is.

He'll be fine.

I hope.

Sucks but injuries happen.

I think Irving is ready to step up and I can't wait to see him put Matt Ryan on his butt.

This is a good thing. Bruce gets his shot, and if any of you know anything about life and the trials of people that didn't quite have a silver spoon following them around - you may understand that Bruce is really going to bring a lot of emotion on Sunday. Count on that.

The other side of this that I like a lot, is Scruggs getting his time in the light. Kids can do amazing things, with the pixie dust known as "opportunity".

I'm looking forward to seeing what Bruce can do...

on a side note...why do so many people put a "G" at the end of his and Michael Irvin's last name?

Quoted for truth. Bruce is a really high energy guy and he's going to be amped up coming in. He's getting his first start....in the playoffs... and remember, he grew up right outside Atlanta, so this is also a homecoming for him.

Let me start by saying that I love what Clemons brings to the table and that I wish him all the best on his recovery. That said I believe that he has not been the force that we need at his position. He is a product of our defensive scheme, just like an average shanahan rusher will get 1k yards, an average Pete Carrol leo will get ten sacks. What we need is an aldon smith type who will get 20.

That is what Bruce was brought on to be, our twenty sack a year leo and Atlanta has no idea what is coming their way. It is time to get your Bruce on Seahawks!

That said I have to admit I am now rooting for GB to take care of business next week. Underrated as Bruce is as a pass rusher I would not wish Gore on him just yet.

Perhaps it's now time to bring in Ray Edwards? He was at HQ a couple weeks back, our FO was kicking the tires....AND he has a chip on his shoulder against Atlanta...is this a possibility? At least for experienced depth?

From what I've read, Irvin is the prototypical size for PC's LEO position.

Interesting turn of events.


Will be nice looking into the future, and seeing what this young man is capable of.


BRUUUUUUUUUUUUCE!

In the long term, this injury is bad. For instance, the Niners would exploit this big time with their line and Gore.

But against the Falcons? The falcons average 85 yards running per game. And even better, only 3.7 yards per run.

Irvin doesn't have to stuff the run. He doesn't even have to occupy a blocker much. In Pete's scheme, he has outside contain: RBs can't bounce stuff outside of him. If the RB goes inside, we have Wright there to stuff the run, it's what he's there for. Clemons has made his chops in the run game by shedding blocks in space....it's hard to get hands on a guy in space if your're a TE or big OLman pulling. Clemons manages to "ole!" his guy and get into run plays, while keeping outside contain and chasing down plays from the backside.

Irvin is already adept at chasing down runs from the backside. If he can shed some of those blocks, Atlanta will probably not run to his side as much, and just chuck it. He doesn't have the repetoire of moves that Clemons does, but he's much much faster. If Irvin can "mature" his game a bit, we'll be fine there. We'll miss Clem, but it's not a disaster necessarily.

I don't know about you guys but for some reason I have this incredible feeling of confidence in Bruce Irvin, this could be his best game yet.

I am holding out hope that Bruce Irvin can show America that he wasn't a reach by taking over this game!

PLAYOFFS BABY! All or nothing.
