Bruce Irvin predicts double-digit sacks for the Redskins, um, Seahawks

Bruce Irvin AP

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.

We think.

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.

The full show, featuring the interview with Irvin and discussions with, among others, coach Pete Carroll, appears below.

    While doubts about his ability to be a three down linebacker worthy of the 15th overall pick are probably justified, doubting his ability to generate sacks in specific packages and designed plays is just nonsensical. This guy can definitely hit the quarterback, in fact, it may be the only aspect of his game that is definitely NFL ready.

    Judging by the look of those dreads I’d say he is well into double digit days since the last time he properly washed his hair.

    On a serious note, Russ Grimm thought he was drafted by the Seahawks when he was told Washington drafted him. Grimm’s career seemed to work out well. All is not lost for Irvin.

    Not a good start rookie. Shut up and do work son.

    i did know marshawn lynch and larry fitzgerald had a son

    Did he make double digits in IQ… Doubt it

  9. beerbudsnbevo says: Jun 24, 2012 11:32 PM

    You know what…what a fun story to read for a change.

    Sick of the Bounty Gates and all the other crap.

    Fun to hear about a GOOD NATURED screw up, from a kid that has a bright future ahead of him.

    As opposed to the INTENDED screw ups.

    Good luck kid…in Washington

  10. nepaseahawk says: Jun 24, 2012 11:59 PM

    good one about marshawn and larry Fitzgerald

  11. pacmantriggerman says: Jun 25, 2012 12:13 AM

    Clearly to me that Bruce Irvin is suffering concussion at the moment.

  12. archetypeobscure says: Jun 25, 2012 12:24 AM

    Yeah, I too thought the Redskins were from Washington and didn’t piece together that it was actually D.C. until I was about 8. Confusing stuff.

  13. pacificnw7722 says: Jun 25, 2012 12:41 AM

    Beast Irvin will come to be known as “The Disruptor” in the Seahawks FAST defense. GO HAWKS!!

  14. zar21 says: Jun 25, 2012 3:26 AM

    He meant to say he will have double digit sacks against the redskins

    ya kno cause their o-line is horrific

  15. lanjoith says: Jun 25, 2012 3:48 AM

    Melvin Ingram would have been a much better pick.

  16. hulkhogansays says: Jun 25, 2012 5:50 AM

    He knows brother. Everyone wants to join Robert Griffin the 3rd’s team now that the course is set for the Redskins to DOMINATE the NFL for the next 15 seasons. That was no slip up. If you don’t want to be a Redskin, then enjoy losing!

  17. cooklynn17 says: Jun 25, 2012 6:06 AM

    OK, and I will go out on a limb and say Tom Brady’s has at least 20 td’s and A. Foster has over 500 rushing yards.

    Isn’t 10 sacks like the 1,000 yard rushing season? Just not that impressive anymore.

  18. worldwidebleater says: Jun 25, 2012 7:12 AM

    He still thinks he’s only a couple hours drive to Morgantown. Seattle residents, get ready for your first couch burnin’.

  19. triangletaddler says: Jun 25, 2012 7:33 AM

    If Tavaris Jackson was going to be my starting QB I’d rather play for the Redskins too.

  20. thegonz13 says: Jun 25, 2012 7:40 AM

    Irvin does know Washington is a state as well… right?

  21. damayan5 says: Jun 25, 2012 9:21 AM

    > Isn’t 10 sacks like the 1,000 yard rushing season? Just not that impressive anymore.

    Just checked. 2011:
    16 players with 10 or more sacks. Compared to 12 RB’s with 1000 yds or more.
    So in fact a 1000 yd RB is rarer these days.

    But yeah decent comparison.
    Still only 1 half of the teams have a 10+ sack man. If the Seahawks drafted one they would be ecstatic.

    It isn’t nonsensical at all. There have been a lot of guys who have been effective college pass rushers who couldn’t get it done in the pros. maybe he’ll be another one; maybe not. What’s nonsensical is making grand proclamations about what you’re going to do in your rookie year when, by definition, you haven’t played a down of pro ball or even gone through a single full contact practice against your pro teammates.

  27. nepaseahawk says: Jun 25, 2012 12:45 PM

    how is it nonsensical for a player to tell a teammate that he expects to surpass 10 sacks?? when a classmate asked you how you thought you were going do on an exam in school would you say “its not likely that I’ll do very well because this test is really challenging ” no you would probably say I’m ready I’ve got this no problem. It was nothing more than a guy talking to a teammate….

  28. nepaseahawk says: Jun 25, 2012 2:13 PM

    I’m pretty sure he knows he’s a seahawk…..and when he was telling the story he was thinking the first thing he thought when he saw washington on the caller id was the redskins……and simply mistakenly said redskins instead of seahawks….seems like an honest mistake but some of you just feel the need to be a bunch of A holes.

  29. nepaseahawk says: Jun 25, 2012 2:15 PM

    irvin will have more sacks than ingram ….Seahawks wanted sacks

    Huh…some poster thinks Melvin Ingram would have been a better pick…I’m sure you’re right and no more about Seattle’s system than the guy that created it.
