He deserved to be on that list over Chris Long at the 16 spot.

Yeah Long getting a vote there is puzzling considering he has 18 sacks in 3 seasons, while Rak has 19.5 in 2 seasons.

Re: Top 10 Pass Rushers ... ORAKPO IS PISSED

I'm glad he's pissed cuz now he can use that as motivation for next year. I wasn't that suprised to see him left off the list, he had a strong first half last year but really fell off in the second half. He just has to learn how to shed holds better, because he gets held a lot and we can't just rely on the officials to call it. I think if we can get a guy opposite him he'll break out in a major way this year.

Get em RAK! If we had a multi-million dollar DT/NT that was worth a crap, then I'm sure his stats would have improved last year. I'm looking forward to this year, if it happens.

Re: Top 10 Pass Rushers ... ORAKPO IS PISSED

I know it's a moot point, but if Rak is at a true RDE he's easily top 10. He plays better with his hand in the dirt. He's still learning to be an OLB, and as Matty mentioned he could use some help....somewhere, anywhere, up front or on the other side.

Re: Top 10 Pass Rushers ... ORAKPO IS PISSED

Don't worry all. After we draft someone to rush opposite him in the draft he will be ripping people a new one next year (or the year after next, provided someone can get their heads out their @$$es) and he will make the list then!

Work out with the enemy? Didn't he grow up as a Houston fan hating the Cowboys, or did I just dream that up? At least he isn't working out with Haynesworthless...

Re: Top 10 Pass Rushers ... ORAKPO IS PISSED

From my standpoint you don't cry and moan when you're left off an offseason "top 10 list". I don't remember Dexter Manley "tweeting". You lay it out on the field and act like a Man. If he was truly monstrous on the field, he would have been on that list.

He's good, he just doesn't have the help yet and is playing OLB & learning the position. He'll be on that list in time.

If he's pissed at anyone it should be Hayensworth,now if he shuts up and plays a game like he should Orakpo would be fine.

D.C. Sports Bog - On Brian Orakpo and holding


Very good article on holding in the NFL.


Cliffnotes: He better have more moves this coming season. Holding isn't going to be called.
