They'll just hold him -- seems to work most of the time.

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.

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

It seems to me that orakpo had a much better season last year than he did his rookie year. Many of his rookie sacks seemed lucky to me. Last season it seemed to me that he got held on just about every time he rushed the passer. Obviously I don't watch these other pass rushers as in depth as I do Orakpo. I do no know if the same happens to them or not.

Orakpo doesn't seem to have whatever is needed to get out of these holds. I don't know if the ability go get around these holds is natural (agility/ fluidity/ natural escapability reasons) or something that is developed (technique, learning nuances to the game). If it is the ladder then there is no doubt in my mind that Orakpo will one day be a consensus top 10 rusher.

Orakpo is my favorite Redskin because he is a warrior at heart. I love guys with a motor and guys that get motivated by not being recognized as top dog, guys that know they are the best and nobody can stop them. I love guys even more that try to prove everyone wrong through both training their heart out and (more importantly) trying to soak in as much knowledge as possible.

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.
Maybe not a good example as Dexter was always good for a controversial quote or two in the papers.

Dexter also didn't have the convenience (or burden) of a twitter... Two different eras, two different players.

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

Bottome line is Rak gets held, just like all the top pass rushers do. Not much he can do about it. Often that's the only thing a lineman can do when he gets beat on the edge and the refs just don't call it enough.

With how good and hard Rak plays on a team that's been plagued with half asses efforts in the past ten years, he can get that list tattooed on a baby and eat the little guy on the 50 yard line and I still wouldn't be offended.

Dexter could not read or write, even if he had twitter.

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

what ticked me off about this whole thing is he didn't receive even one vote. Out of 8 guys who each were allowed to rank there own top 10, he didn't get even a tenth place vote... even Chris Long got a tenth place vote

Really? So you don't think that someone like Hayensworth....playing at his ultimate pro bowl level on the same D line as Orakpo would help him....maybe take away a double team or 2 here or there,you don't think that it would help Orakpo if they were more worried about Hayensworth then him.......you really don't think he would rather be under the radar ....then know as the "ONLY" pass rusher the Skins have???It helps Tuck to have Osi and visa versa.
