Regardless of the number of sacks rookie defensive end Bruce Irvin has this year, it’s safe to say he’ll get none of them as a member of the Redskins.
On the latest edition of The Real Rob Report, a production of Seahawks Pro Bowl fullback Michael Robinson, Irvin says he’ll have double-digit sacks in his rookie season, but he doesn’t want to pick a specific number in order to avoid jinxing himself. (Or course, guaranteeing at least 10 would arguably constitute a jinx.)
The funniest moment comes when Irvin discusses the moment he learned he’d been drafted by Seattle.
“I saw a Washington number,” Irvin said. “I said, ‘Who’s calling me from Washington?’ Picked it up, it was John Schneider. They asked me if I wanted to be a Redskin and I was like, ‘Hell yeah.’ It’s a great organization.”
Robinson interjected. “Asked if you wanted to be a who?”
“I mean a Seahawk,” Irvin said, laughing. “I f–ked up. I f–ked up.”
Seahawks fans are surely hoping that the team didn’t “f–k up” by using the 15th overall pick on Irvin. If he gets double-digit sacks in 2012, they surely won’t think that.
