I think our LB core is the strongest of anything else on this team right now.. Riley, Orackpo, Kerrigan, and Fletcher have all played really well, and 3 of them are hitting their prime.. I have a good feeling about this defense in the upcoming years.

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

I understand the point about Rak going up against each teams best OT, but even the best OT can only block so long against a great pass rusher. And if it's a truly great pass rusher teams will double or chip him & the QB will be aware of him at all times. Its safe to say neither of our guys is a great pass rusher at this point, cause they don't make the offense adjust to them, its simply 1 on 1 blocking.

Both Rak & Kerrigan have been getting coverage sacks this year, which is great when it happens. When it doesn't it's a disaster like yesterday, Romo had time to scope the field, then decide to get out of the pocket w/out any immediate pressure. You can blame Hall & the DBs all day for completions, but they covered really well on several 3rd downs that ended up being converted cause Romo extended the play.

exactly, the one position where we are set and havent really been affected negatively by injuries other than rocky, and the fans want to skew orakpo cause he isnt producing enough. The guy is still in his 3rd year. If you want to bitch at him about something, then bitch about those god awful geico commercials that should have never been released to the public.

Riley shows promise, but he's in no way hitting his prime. In my opinion.

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

Romo should have been sacked more times than he was. Kerrigan managed to get to him. Orakpo had a solid rush. Although Brian Orakpo didn't get a sack on Romo, and although Kerrigan did and now has one more sack this season than Orakpo, I still predict Orakpo to end up with the most sacks between the two by the end of the season.

So...in all of this, Lorenzo Alexander has become pretty irrelevant hasn't he?

They should go back and use him as a backup G, he still contributes on ST. I say keep him.

I was thinkin the same thing yesterday. Saw him on the ko coverage team & that's the first I've noticed him in weeks. He gets no reps at Kerrigan's spot.
