There’s something about
He was the Seahawks’ 1st-round draft choice last season. His uniform number is 51. This season, he is playing more than one position, lining up as the strong-side linebacker on some plays and rush-end on others. And Friday – which is Nov. 1, or 11/1 – is his 26th birthday.
And what would be No. 1 on the list of perfect birthday gifts for Irvin? How about a game where he makes one interception as a linebacker, has one fumble-forcing sack as a rush-end and also collects nine tackles – one at a time?
Too late. That’s exactly what Irvin did in Monday night’s 14-9 victory over the Rams in St. Louis – in a nationally televised game.
“Bruce had a fantastic game for us,” coach Pete Carroll said this week.
So happy birthday to Bruce Irvin.
