    Let’s hope he is our next Rufus Porter! I remember the excitement Rufus could instill in the defense. It took everyone up a notch performance wise. John Elway did not like playing against Rufus at all. I remember our Crowd all yelling “Rufus!” “Rufus!”

    After watching tape of our new rusher and comparing that to Rufus they could easily have similar results. Biggest difference is Bruce Irvin is bigger and faster.

    Can you believe a 6-3 243 pound pass rusher that can run 4.43? Believe it baby! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W8toZnju8qE

    I agree Kelly, I hope this dude becomes the next Rufus Porter and exceeds all that Rufus did for us! It looks like Pete is building a top 5 defense here in Seattle. I want the Seattle Defense to be the best Defense in the NFC!
