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

This year's Redskins draft class will go as one best when it's all said and done. We are just scratching the surface, Kerrigan, Helu, Paul are making an impact and as the season progresses others will step up.

I'd love to say I'm surprised with how good Kerrigan has been but........

Quote:
Future Stars (My Opinion):
Ryan Kerrigan - This guy is Clay Matthews. He out muscles his opponents, never quits, stands out in every game. Taking him at #10 will pay huge dividends to us later.
Von Miller - Beast. Has a great pass rush, but an even better ability to make a big tackle.
Prince Amukamara - If He falls we can't pass him up. Patrick Peterson is without a doubt the better corner, but Amukamara is being overlooked as the "2nd best corner". He's a future shutdown corner with ability to tackle in the box.

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

They both benefit by having the other on the opposite side. Kerrigan is exactly what we needed to go with Rak.

I can't wait to see these guys dominate for years to come.

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

Kerrigan needs a year under his belt to become an Orakpo, just for the fact that Brian has had more time to get comfortable in his role as OLB. Ryan had a more dramatic entry into the NFL with his pick six, and his sacks, but he isn't surpassing Orakpo for sometime, if ever. To do that he will have to improve exponentially I think.

Kudos IrMitchell.

With that said, what's up with all the chest pounding on the 'Path recently? first 44ever with his "I told you so" about Torain and now IrMitchell about Kerrigan. No offense bro but it only works if someone else toots your horn, such as if I came in here and said, well IrMitchell deserves major kudos for his Kerrigan prediction before the draft. It just makes you look like an ass for doing it yourself. Again not trying to be hostile here but I'm calling it like I see it.

As to Rak, I generally agree. He has superlative physical ability. I would like to see him develop an effective spin move and/or a nice arm over - he may do them but I don't see them. It seems if he can't bull or speed rush the QB he doesnt get there.

maybe as RK gets more attention, Rak can start developing some techniques that let his speed become more of a factor.

Whatever dude, you know that since both of them are good, we need to immediately trade the other for picks. If we trade one of our OLBs and Cooley we can have 3 first round picks next year. [/big time sarcasm]

On a serious note, I hope the team can put together an effective offense soon, so we don't waste this defense of ours while it is in its prime.

He had a nice inside move too.

2.5 sacks, not bad for a guy with no moves... according to some.

Being a human tsunami/tornado/wrecking ball is not a move.

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

Haven't even read the other posts yet but what it looks like to me is Orakpo is being held almost every play which keeps him from getting his sacks. Kerrigan is totally benifiting from Orakpo being stopped but what is nice is during the games it seems like when the opponants decide they are tired of Kerrigan either getting to the QB or getting too close they move the protection his way and Orakpo is freed up.

Its nice to see the Skins with two awesome pass rushers.

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

I think Rak would get more calls if he went to the ground actually. You see holding called all the time when the tackle or guard takes the defender to the ground. Sure it'd be embellishing a little bit but we'd be naive to think players in this league don't embellish when given the opportunity. As for beating the tackle I think Rak is actually diversifying his arsenal up this year. I saw him work a spin move on one play there, and on another he went inside on the tackle. And as has been mentioned on Bowen's straight sack Rak rushed up the middle, bumped the guard into the tackle, and that's what opened Bowen up to get straight to the quarterback. Overall great game by Rak today, he still got a holding call and that's in addition to the 2.5 sacks he recorded.

Redskins vs. Rams: Brian Orakpo and Ryan Kerrigan are becoming quite a duo - The Washington Post
