This.

Re: Your thoughts of the possibility of Kerrigan "surpassing" Orakpo

Actually Kerrigan is making Rak better as he draws more respect and blocking to slow him down. AND Rak will give supreme effort to keep up with Kerrigan. They are a ferocious duo and Rak was a monster today...
Tremendous Defensive unit this year...Cannot wait to see what happens next offseason with aquisitions...FA's and Jarvis Jenkins coming back

Pretty much how I feel. And let's not forget Riley and Zo. I think Rocky is absolutely having his best season...good enough to keep Riley from starting which I was really looking forward to seeing, but Rocky is ballin' right now. I wouldn't put Kerrrigan ahead of Rak just yet but he does seem to have a better knack for causing TO's and being around the ball. Of course as much as Rak gets held it's amazing he can make any plays at all. I think the HC and GM did a great job in getting Kerrigan as him and Orakpo are the perfect compliments to each other.

Rak is still our main man on the line but with the addition of Kerrigan we are making it much tougher for the opposition. Fun to watch these two at work along with Landry knocking the snot out of people.

Exactly right. We've got two monsters at OLB, and that's great. But Orakpo has made the pro-bowl in each of his first two seasons, and he's pacing for another one in his third. Kerrigan has looked fantastic, but he's played all of four NFL games.

Oh, Orakpo had 2.5 sacks today, btw.

Re: Your thoughts of the possibility of Kerrigan "surpassing" Orakpo

Stephen Bowen is very under-appreciated. I'm actually pretty ecstatic that they signed him instead of Cullen Jenkins. Granted Jenkins is playing well right now (4 sacks in 4 games) but Bowen has three years on him and is constantly getting pressure.

Kerrigan has been significantly better than Orakpo during his rookie year.

He's been a non-factor in Philly.

We'll see if he tops 11 sacks.

Surpassing him in what?
This is like trying to decide who gets a free oil change, you or your wifes car.

Re: Your thoughts of the possibility of Kerrigan "surpassing" Orakpo

Funny, I know the thread is about Kerrigan, but I don't think Rak has anywhere reached his potential. I think this guy could be one of the best. He just hasn't put it all together.
