Orakpo + Ware = GTL?

Former Longhorn, current Redskin Brian Orakpo plans to work with Cowboy DeMarcus Ware this offseason | Dallas Cowboys Blog | Sports News | News for Dallas, Texas | The Dallas Morning News

Kind of strange, though really, you'd have to assume Orakpo is the bigger beneficiary here. Whatever helps him make his recent tweet a reality, I guess I'm for.

He needs to work with Kevin Greene, much like Matthews did. Seemed to have helped quite a bit if you ask me.

Story doesn't mention that Osi Umenyiora plans to work out with them as well. So a Cowboy, a Redskin, and a Giant working out together in the off-season.

What does that tell you?

That everybody hates the Eagles

Sounds like the beginning of a joke. I guess the Eagles end up being the punchline.

Not weird at all to me. Good idea to work on his technique. We need to remember, as fans, we're the only ones that care about the rivalry. One thing I loved about Smoot was he openly hated the Cowboys. Not many players are like that anymore.

True, but well having him as a coach for the season probably helped as well. I remember when they showed Greene go over to Matthews telling him that it was time, I called my friend and said that he should be our DC. Nothing against JH but Greene seemed like he's be pretty a good motivator.

No it's not wierd to me either. I mean in a way it is but I look at it as one player helping another player. Once the season starts that's a whole new thing but this is the offseason and one guy is just paying it forward. Helping out those after him.

Now lets just wait for the rumors that Orakpo wants to be a Cowboy or that we are going to trade the next 12 drafts to get Ware.

Hey whatever works. Guys from other teams work out all the time in the offseason. No big deal.

In the offseason, TMC practices locking threads with mods from thehogs.net. It happens

Re: Orakpo + Ware = GTL?

Yeah, I don't think that they need to hate each other off the field, but, as a commenter in the Dallas article said about Ware*, shouldn't Orakpo be working out with Lorenzo Alexander or Perry Riley. (Or Robert Quinn???? - I know that's not going to happen, but a fella can dream).

Or at least let them tag along?

* He referenced Spencer.

Re: Orakpo + Ware = GTL?

Again, I don't have a problem with it really, I'd be more angry if I was Dallas. It's like being a Yankee after Mariano Rivera taught Roy Halladay the cutter at an All-Star Game-

Uh, dude, we have to try and get on base against that guy, Mariano, he's one of the best pitcher's in the league - that's about enough with the Christian charity, homey- cut that shit out.

Re: Orakpo + Ware = GTL?

Who's to say he's not. These guys work out with so many different people

Plus, honestly what can Orakpo learn from Riley or Alexander?

Re: Orakpo + Ware = GTL?

exactly, I'd much rather Rak be the student at this point in his career than the teacher.

Good for Rak. Osi and Ware, it pains me to say, likely will be just the teachers he needs.

If Orakpo ends up as good as WARE we will all be happy
