How is Bruce Irvin doing, anyway? I've watched a few Seahawks games and haven't noticed him in particular. I know he was a fairly specialized player to begin with, an undersized rush DE, so I believe the plan was to play him mostly on 3rd downs...
Exactly what they've been doing. I think he had something like 15 tackles but over half of them were sacks, so that plan did something right. I think he can evolve into an every down guy in about 2-3 years, so long as the wear and tear on him doesn't slow him down. Otherwise he's probably going to be a passing situation specialist that racks up low tackle and surprisingly high sack totals every season.

FWIW, WVU did the same thing with him his first year on campus, and he led the nation in sacks that year.
