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

Ironically Rob Jackson isn't to bad either. Granted his penalty today was a little boneheaded but when Rak has gone out with nicks and bruises these past two weeks I haven't been to worried about the dropoff, even though it's a relatively steep one from Rak to Jack.

I've always liked Jackson and I can guarantee you that the other 7th rounder Markus White is another sleeper to keep an eye on.

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

Couple of points:

1. Not sure if we can say Kerrigan is ROY with Von Miller playing like he has been.
2. Orakpo goes up against left tackles which are best prized bulls in the NFL.
3. Kerrigan benefits greatly from extra attention paid to Orakpo. Until Kerrigan proves he is more worthy than Orakpo of those double teams I dont think we can say he is better.
4. Kerrigan is a beast and I am so happy we have him and Orakpo.

Agreed on the first point, but at the same time we have to consider as good as Von Miller has played Kerrigan still beat him out for Defensive Rookie of the Month. If Kerrigan can put up good stats from game to game like he's been doing there's no reason it won't be a close race.

Kerrigan is a steal at 17

I really think the penalty was kinda stupid. Rob couldn't tell he released the football yet and was just finishing the play. Hit him square and tackled him. Nothing wrong with that in my eyes.

You let go of him, and he still has the football? We get a flashback of what Eli did in the Super Bowl

Jenkins is a better player now, and probably would have been a better use of the money we spent b/c his "cheap" years would have been more valuable to us on the front end. But considering the way we did go (probably overpaying Bowen), we came out alright.

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

It would really be hard to compare these two players.....Orakpo is a destroyer, while Kerrigan is a guy that makes plays and is incredibly heads up.

Actually come to think of it, I'm starting to wonder if Bowen is underpaid. In fact I found myself thinking earlier today "this is the type of play they were hoping to get out of Haynesworth last year." The sack is just the icing on the cake. His impact has been more then basic numbers he's posted on his own sheet.

Sorry, I believe there is an error in your evaluation.
All the draft experts had Kerrigan grading out to go further down in the first round...ergo we ...foolishly took him to early. Stupid Bruce Allen
......doomed

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

I think this is something that will help form a very strong defense for the next 10 years. You have these guys locked up, (hopefully) at very early times in their careers. We have a couple of young LB's in Riley and.....(crap forgot the other guys name)..anyway, this allows us to get better around them and not have to expirement on the two most important positions on this 3-4 scheme.

I love those two together because you can't double team both of them, one is always one on one and either we get the sack, good pressure, a hit or a holding call. and with the speed and power these guys play with and the constant rushing every play i think it wears down those offensive tackles and the running game starts to struggle and by the 4th quarter they can really take over.

Dumb question for this season because orakpo taking up other blockers makes kerrigan better.

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

The real question is how good will the front 7 be if Jenkins (not cullen) comes back strong from his injury. As excited as I am about the start of this year, what is even better is the fact that this team is being built to go for a while.

Wow. Good call. I had completely forgotten about him
