Irving is definitely talented, but he can only play in passing downs and really has only one pass rush move--a push to the outside and run to the inside. Packers coach McCarthy commented that the O Line was allowing themselves to get turned sideways. At halftime they made the adjustment and had the lineman play square to the Seahawks pass rushers. The pressure then went away. Irvin is good but he can get bottled up when the lineman play correct technique.
BTW you have to go on record with this comment. When Coples has a monster week, say in week six, I want you to bump this thread and admit you jumped to ridiculous conclusion. Own up to your complaining.
