I did see him SEEM LIKE he took a couple of plays off last night. But I think he was just gassed. I'm not concerned with the beast.

That was a play to remember for a long time. What a freakin' stud Rak is.

I wasn't able to watch the game, but I watched the highlights on the Redskins website, and there seemed to be no shortage of Steeler passing plays in which Batch had a pocket large enough to fit a dining room table and enough time to throw a tea party. Haynesworth did play in the first quarter correct? Again, I only saw highlights, but from what I did see there was very little pressure from Haynesworth, Rak and Co.

That really wasn't the case, there was pressure all night long

Yeah he just seemed tired out towards the end of the 2nd quarter

Re: Let's talk some Orakpo

I only watched the first half, but Im a little nervous about other teams spreading the offense with their qb in shotgun. We were great against the run, not counting that Parker td, but that drive mainly consisted of a couple big pass plays. I'm not sold on Rogers or Hall at corner.

I think they've got to spell him here and there playing SLB. That position is draining cause he's got to line up over the TE. You can't expect him to play SLB and then rush the passer on 3rd downs. His value is rushing the passer and he seems to do it very very well.

Monty was in real fast. I think Haynesworth played the first 4 plays before they pulled him. Then it was just spot duty for a couple more plays.

The pressure was there from the front four... although I will say the blitzing didn't seem to work very well. Looks like we are at our best with the 4 down linemen bringing the pressure and maybe a delayed safety or LB blitz.

Definitely glad to hear that. Thanks.

Re: Let's talk some Orakpo

Another thing, after Big Al left the game, the Steelers started double-teaming 'Rak. They can't do that in the regular season.

We're going to get a LOT of sacks this season.

Re: Let's talk some Orakpo

I'm looking back now at the 2009 draft and I think Orakpo is one of those guys where you going to look back and wonder why he lasted until pick 13. Most of the guys picked ahead of him are probably going to be just steady players if that. The only exception of course being Aaron Curry.

1. Stafford - Really could go either way. However if he is a Jay Cutler clone then he'll be fine.

2. Jason Smith - Probably one of those guys you won't hear about a lot but he'll always being doing a pretty good job.

3. Tyson Jackson - I thought like many that he was picked way to soon. Pioli thinks he could be Richard Seymour but I can't help but wonder if he'll be Marcus Spears. I wonder who you guys trust more.

4. Aaron Curry - Excellent pick, enough said.

5. Sanchez - Not sure how it'll go but I think he'll have a good career.

6. Andre Smith - Not even in camp thanks to Mike Brown insisting on taking a stand now against the slotting system instead of the CBA meetings next winter.

7. Heyward-Bey - Most likely going to be a bust with shady QB play and questionable route running.

8. Eugene Monroe - Probably one of those guys you'll be happy to have and will probably make it to a pro bowl or two.

9. BJ Raji - He'll be good. If anything he played well in the Packers last preseason game.

10. Crabtree - Agent is an idiot and as a result Crabtree will loose millions of dollars by entering the draft next year. Not smart at all considering the guy is coming off an injury. Maybe if he had never missed a game it would be a different story. If I was him I would get a new agent and hope for a slotted salary.

11. Aaron Maybin - To undersized and came out of nowhere to fast. My guess is he ends up being a bust but nothing more then a solid player at best.

12. Knowshon Moreno - My guess is he has a few good years then break downs by around his 5th or 6th year.

In all I think the only player here that will be better then Orakpo is Curry.
