Gotcha, I had thought it was a personal conflict. Glad he's back.

White and worthington to active roster, I feel good about them. Now we know why Shanahan likes so many players to compete.

It doesn't ease mine. Even with the Rams having 3 starters out on their OL, we STILL couldn't generate any pressure.

Keenan Robinson was drafted to be the next London Fletcher. Lets see if the Texas LB can fill Orapkpo's shoes.

Sunday's defensive performance looked like 2010 all over again, indeed. I still think the front seven could be a solid unit, but that doesn't matter if Haslett doesn't get it together.

Re: Orakpo and Carriker Done for Season

The depth chart, post-Rak and Carriker - Rich Tandler's Real Redskins

Quote:
Defensive line

Starters: RE Jarvis Jenkins, NT Barry Cofield, LE Stephen Bowen
Reserves: E Kedric Golston, E Worthington, NT Chris Baker

Jenkins gets his big opportunity and there is no reason to think that he won’t handle it well. After all, the Redskins drafted him in the second round to take over for Carriker at some point and that might have been this year had Jenkins’ not missed all of last season with a torn ACL.

This is not to say that there won’t be a dropoff with Carriker out, at least in the short term. He was the starter for a reason and Jenkins is far from a finished product.

Jenkins still might fill in to give Cofield a rest in nickel situations while Baker, who was inactive in the first two games, will rotate in at NT on some running downs. Golston moves up to being the top reserve at DE.

Linebacker

Starters: OLB’s Ryan Kerrigan, Rob Jackson; ILB’s Perry Riley, London Fletcher
Reserves: OLB’s White, Chris Wilson; ILB’s Lorenzo Alexander, Keenan Robinson

The Redskins have been an anomaly in the NFL in that their four linebackers stay on the field for virtually every snap. That could change as the Redskins want to give both Jackson and Wilson at shot at winning Orakpo’s job. They could end up rotating situationally as they determine the strengths and weaknesses of each.

The other reserve linebackers will continue to do what they have done, play special teams and wait to see if their opportunity comes up.
Honestly this is what quality depth gives you. While Rak and Carriker were the starters for clear reasons, I tend to think that with time the reserves will step up and show themselves well.

Wilson was a preseason beast. Let's hope he can step it up while the real lights are on.

Seriously. They were playing a third string LT at one point. What would ease my mind is if a second opinion said Rak would be playing next week. Happy for White, but I wouldnt call him an impact player.

Re: Orakpo and Carriker Done for Season

No one is talking about how rare it was for Bradford to have deep drops. He was getting the ball out so quick, even the best blitzing team wouldn't get to him.

They have been his while career though. I mean ill blame the amendola crap on that but on some other throws he had all tge time in the world?

Alot of passes were quick release and I blame our poor coverage/scheme for them to keep hitting us with them, but our inability to get to Bradford cannot be overlooked. I think the best blitzing teams would have gotten to him or atleast hurried him into alittle less accuracy.

Re: Orakpo and Carriker Done for Season

Why isn't Lorenzo getting a shot at OLB? Does his skill set not match the position?

He's already playing ILB and you have Wilson, Jackson and White.
