Colin and Tom address the news that Bruce Irvin gets busted for violating the NFL drug policy. 710 ESPN Seattle's own Danny O'Neil comes on to assess how much this could hurt the Seahawks with him out for the first four games of the season.
Tom and Colin aren't too worried about the Bruce Irvin suspension because of the Seahawks acquisitions of Cliff Avril and Michael Bennett. They would be more concerned if Avril was out because of how Irvin played against Atlanta in the playoffs. Tom thinks this would've hurt much more if he was lost toward the end of the season rather than the beginning. Colin says the balance of the team lessens the blow as well.
Colin has a theory that the linebackers will be more effected by the Irvin suspension rather than the defensive line. He has some 'splainin to do. Tom can agree with that in "an immediate sense". Both agree that this is a deep team and this shouldn't have too much of a negative impact.
