Doesn't matter because together they both would've been a force. So I've got no problem with Kerrigan surpassing Orakpo.

2 beastly OLBs? Even if one does end up better than the other? I'll take it.
Got that backwards, and wouldn't have happened.

As far as this argument goes, I agree with all, this is a great discussion to even have.

Thing is, these guys are going to be able to feed off of each other, reap the benefits of teams focusing on the other on particular plays, and be able to learn from each other for a long time.

Could not ask for more from these two. ALSO great level headed men as well with high character. Not going to get many Joey Porter comments from either of them or boneheaded articles like the ones from James Harrison. They also play aggressive but clean. What more could you ask for from our OLBs?

National media will be all over these two once we are good enough to warrant the attention again. Which may come sooner rather than later.

We can get at least 4 good years out of Cofield. He is only 28.

Jenkins, is our future as well at end and a rotational NT, Jenkins with Cofield(28) and Bowen(28) is going to be our line for the coming years. NOT to shabby if you ask me. Comparable to the good ones in the NFL for sure.

We also may have a Gnata type in Neild, I kinda doubt it but ya never know. I think he is more of a good depth player.

I would assume that we resign Fletch to a short deal, Rak and Landry should both be extended (with the new rules in signing draft picks there is money to go around, Landry may not get a big deal from us if he can't stay healthy), and damn I would love to resign Rocky but he is playing great and may want to test FA after the year.

We are going to have to sign one of the middle backers before next year as you dont want to take a strength in our team right now. AND replace two of the pieces.

That's were Jarvis Jenkins comes into the picture.

Orakpo, Kerrigan and Fletch could all make the PB

Bowen is starting to warm up and Cofield has been solid, they are also a big part of the success Orakpo and Kerrigan are having. They do the dirty work, while the other 2 get the glory.

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

Not that it matters much, but doesnt Orakpo usually take on the Left tackle more often than not? Just saying that because usually, the LT is the better blocker, which could be one of the reasons that Kerrigan is getting alot of numbers. Line Osackpo up on the left hand side, and he would prolly have the same effect that Kerrigan has been having.


Both are awesome for sure.

Wasn't he a rookie last year? What is Petey smoking?

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

If Kerrigan surpasses Orakpo, he will be entering rarified air among the very, very best pass rushers in the league. Each makes the other better since opposing defenses must account for both on every play. I would argue that they are as impactful a duo as Harrison and Woodley for Pittsburgh.

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

Interesting reader question on King's article. I don't want to create a brand new thread on it..



ON CALVIN JOHNSON. "Thanks for your column. It's not officially Monday for me until I've read it. Here's my question: Calvin Johnson was certainly unstoppable yesterday. I'm wondering why, on goal-line plays, coaches don't occasionally defend big receivers like Johnson with a big receiver from their own team? Doesn't somebody like Dez Bryant have a better chance of beating Johnson on a "jump ball" pass?'' -- Ryan Reed, Bowling Green, Ky.

Thank you for the kind words, Ryan. I hadn't thought of that strategy, but you could be right. In a Houston-Detroit game, for instance, I'd love to see Andre Johnson as the deep safety on a big play at the end of a game, to battle Calvin Johnson on a deep throw. I know coaches would shy away from it for a number of reasons, including fear of injury, but on the biggest play of the game, why not do it?
