  • He had a couple of plays where he looked like a rookie, and then flat out dominated. That -153-yard sack was amazingly awesome. And came at exactly the right time.

  • He looked better and better as the game went on. Loved his effort fighting through not one, but two blockers to get to Griffin to notch that sack. Still has some learning to do, but I think he's a fine addition to the line.

  • I thought he played great. But he was relatively fresh coming into the game in the fourth quarter. He has to do that over an entire game.

  • He certainly seems to do better with his power rush than his speed rush. We don't have a big guy in the middle that gets pressure so when Bruce goes fast he usually gets behind the QB and forces him to step up. Unfortunately there's usually no one there to hit him.

    It appears to me, with Clemons healthy, Irvin isn't strictly rushing the passer. Because, once he became the full-time pass-rusher, he killed it.

    I'm worried about Clemmons being out next week,....... though they played well without him, and especially Bruce seemed to shine. Really seeing that hybrid 4-3/3-4 PC talks about. Loved the pressure we put on Cousins with 5 min. to go.

  • Let me start by saying I haven't criticized him all year.

    They actually ran at him the first few plays when Clemons was out with a lot of success, he's still not very strong at the POA.

    He was awesome today though I don't think it proves he's ready for the LEO though. I just think it proves that he can rush on 1st and 2nd down too, usually he comes in for one play and then he's out. He got to play 3-4 plays in a row and was effective.

  • Bruce is going to be well rested, and should get a good amount of snaps in practice this week. It will be good to see how he handles advercity. I dont think he can tackle as well as clem, but he sure does get after the QB pretty well, seems like he was always an arms length away from getting him.

    Totally infact on the play he got the sack, he got cut on the play by the tackle, got around the running back and then broke the QB down (albeit a hobbled one) in the open field.

    I think Irvin will have an even better year next year if we can get a tackle to collapse the pocket.

    Yeah, that's what I saw too. Although WCS made a great point that they ran right at him.

    But, if that last quarter was any sign, Irvin may not let that role go next year (assuming Clem's hurt). Scruggs may do VERY well in Irvin's slot.

    No misunderstanding here Pe, I got IT with your first post, and with him HAVING to pony up, that's exactly what he did.
    The call for his limited play this Season was designed around his Rookie skillset, but when he was asked to get up on it, he made his plays count....outstanding effort, fantastic results.

    Does that matter?

  • I actually think it is better to have Bruce playing every down. Using him only on passing downs probably allowed the OL to get a breather and brace themselves for him. Now Bruce will be a constant force that must be accounted for every down. I can see the OL breaking down from pure fatigue, provided Bruce does not tire out first.

    No worries there. He's a got an all-day motor. Seeing how he handles teams running in his direction will telling though.

    It's getting kind of creepy how much alike you and I think.

    I will take this a step further and say Irvin will take the Leo for good from now, even after Clem comes back.

  • Irvin IMO has already shown enough promise to validate his pick; obviously he'll have to do more in the future to completely justify it but that's a given.

    If he can step up and have a big game here, the doubters/draft trash-talkers who said it was a reach can go hang out with all the people who said wilson was too short and wouldn't be any good, if they aren't the same already.

  • My hope is that we get an early lead so Bruce can be Bruce and pin his ears back.

    The only way I see him struggling is if we get down again (like in Washington), and he has to defend against 300 lb lineman and TE's pushing him downfield. It was no coincidence that he started playing well last week when we got a lead and the Skins had to start passing.

    Maybe he has that move and is ready to unveil it? Atlanta cant run that well anyway so we can put a bit slower LEO in there until 2nd down most likely, until is obvious anyway

  • Atlanta's O-line is not dominant in the middle. I could see Mebane and Branch actually getting push up the middle and they pass most of the time. Irvin does a good job getting around the backside so if we can get some push in the middle from Mebane and Branch, I could see Bruce creating some havoc in the backfield.
