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

At this point I'm leaning towards Kerrigan being the better player. Orakpo is good, but not great. Kerrigan looks to me like he'll be great. Time will tell, but he's certainly headed in the right direction. Kid is a monster.

Everyone bitches about Orakpo this, Orakpo that. My question is: what is/where is Cofield?

Kerrackpo + DJ Gomes + Hall + Wilson + Otogwe + Coefield + Weild + Bowen + Jenkins = STRONG DEFENSE IN 2012 ..WE JUST NEED OFFENSE TO CATCH UP, SIMPLY PUT A FRANCHISE QB

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

Couldn't watch the game today, but as recently as two weeks ago I came to the same conclusion. Kerrigan plays the run so much better than Orakpo. Orakpo looks at the run as something he has to put up with in order to rush the passer, and Kerrigan takes both seriously. Plus Kerrigan is definitely more effective, he already has more sacks in his career against NFCE opponents than Orakpo does in his career.

Just glad to have them both. Not sure why it has to be a competition.

I would erase Hall from your list cause he SUCKS and add OL depth cause they need it badly.

its not a competition. i personally am noting that orakpo doesnt get consistent pressure whatsoever when he is supposed to be a top of the line olb in the nfl. hes not. kerrigan is better than him. he gets more pressure, he makes more plays. orakpo hasnt made a play in weeks.

Well it should be noted that Orakpo's presence helps make life easier for Kerrigan... and Kerrigan often doesn't have to go against the best offensive lineman for that team.

Take Rak out of the equation and put Kerrigan on his side, and I don't think we'd be seeing the same production.

That's exactly what I would like to see Haslett try. Perhaps the combined result would be better if they switched sides. I'm alarmed that Rak becomes a non-factor against great left tackles.

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

Until Orakpo learns to develop other moves, he's going to be a one trick pony who's a liability in pass coverage and run defense. He needs to step it up big time. He didn't have a single QB hit today. It's not that he didn't even get a sack, it's he didn't even get a sniff at the QB. He was being handled all day long by Free. I've said that I think Kerrigan is going to be head and shoulders above Orakpo when it's all said and done.

Kerrigan is a stud.
Orakpo is not living up to his fan created reputation.
I'll take Kerrigan.

This. I think Kerrigan has played better than Orakpo so far, but you can't deny the impact both of them have on each other and our oppoenents. Remember the days when Orakpo would get shut down and we'd be bitching about how Andre Carter/Zo weren't doing anything on the other side? Nowadays when Orakpo is quiet we get to see Kerrigan beasting it up on the other side. And yes Orakpo plays a big part in that.

By taking on the LT he leaves Kerrigan free to take on the RT who usually is not as good as the LT, unless we're playing a left handed qb in which case the RT is usually better than the LT. So we need to be happy we have both, because if one of them gets shut down (usually Orakpo) it's opening up opportunities on the other side that we know Kerrigan can take advantage of. I hope we have both of them for years.

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

Orakpo and Kerrigan are to the Redskins what Dexter Manley and Charles Mann were back in the days. They are two legitimate pass rushers who have the potential for greatness. I don't think there are another LB tandem in the NFL who are better than those two.
