Seahawks linebacker Bruce Irvin thinks Seattle’s defense is one win away from establishing a legacy as one of the all-time greats.
“I definitely feel like we’ll go out as one of the top defenses to ever play the NFL,” Irvin said. “But, we got to win first. I don’t want to talk about winning the game. We just got to prepare and keep practicing. Those guys are a really good team so we got to stay focused and really bust our tail if we really want to win Sunday.”
Irvin said he believes that not only do the Seahawks have the best starting 11 in the NFL, but they have plenty of backups who would be starters on other teams.
“I think on defense we go 13, 14 or 15 deep so we got our twos and threes can be starters somewhere else,” Irvin said.
Can the Sehawks be remembered alongside the Steelers of the 1970s and the Bears of the 1980s as the greatest defenses in the history of the sport? If they were to shut down Peyton Manning and Tom Brady in back-to-back Super Bowls, it would be hard to argue against them.
