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

Not yet. Today showed me that Orakpo is the better rusher and it's not just because of the sacks. Don't get me wrong Kerrigan is easily a favorite to win DROY but the idea of him being better then Orakpo might have been a bit premature.

Bottom line though is that it's great to even be able to debate such a topic.

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

Now this is the kinda hypothetical thread I can get behind.

Honestly, if Kerrigan does surpass Orakpo in terms of making plays, it doesn't matter. The only thing that matters to me is that we lock them up so they can play together for the next decade because it's obvious they feed off each other, and make each other better. I love both of them. I hope they never leave, I hope they are Redskins until the day they retire. We as a team have not had the luxury of having two young, ballin ass bookend pass rushers like them in such a long time, and I want to enjoy them for the next decade, minimum.

Not sure why it matters if he does or doesn't, we have two beasts at OLB.

This, ten times this. Also want to add it's great to have 3 excellent running backs that are all young and can contribute. Sorry James Davis, someone had to be the odd man out in this situation, and it's you. But if you were worth keeping around anyways, you'dve been kept.

Once again, fans not content with having two good players in one position

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

They are both great players, Orakpo can rush the passer slightly better, Kerrigan has a knack for creating turnovers. We are lucky to have both and at this rate, if Kerrigan continues to play the way he's been playing, he will be the defensive NFC ROTY.

Technically it's two positions. So having two premier pass rushers in two positions shouldn't be a case of having excess "ballin."

No, this is just a probe into people's minds and how they view players. Had I posted this thread after the draft, I believe I would have gotten a unanimous "No". It is an oppurtunity for introspection.

Fair enough, still this seems like a silly argument. We have two great pass rushers, two good TEs, and three good RBs. I would take that rather than having only one good TE, one good pass rusher, or just one good RB.

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

Orakpo is still the man -- he is feared by coordinators around the league now, Kerrigan still isn't. Orakpo and Kerrigan are absolute beasts though and we may very well have one of the best LB corps in the league with Rak, Kerrigan, Fletch, and now McIntosh stepping up and a very reliable backup in Rob Jackson

Agreed. In the case of TE's and RB's I have no problem having excess talent, because that just means we have good depth. Good depth is never a bad thing.
