No its not. Its a corner who can effectively take away 1 half the field or play the best man coverage in the game.

Orakpo and his skill set are not all pro like Revis

No, but someone will. He's been the best CB in the last 5 years. Thats too much money still.

But in regards to Orakpo, how much are you gonna give him? Think alot people are gonna be surprised when we let him walk, Carlos style.

I don't know, alot less then revis. Not that I'm part of the orakpo vs revis thing. I'm against revis for his massive contract.

Right but to compare Orakpo to Revis? Its not close, at all.

Orakpo has been a bust IMO. Sorry but he's a 1st rounder and really has only had 1 good season. Not even close to compare, revis is elite

A damn good writeup.

And I'm thrilled that the Skins are not mentioned as a possible destination for him. The Vinnie days are so absolutely, positively over...

When he was healthy he was rated 15th by PFF in sacks, hits, hurries. He's definately an effective pass rusher. Thats where he ranked in pressures per play, it wasn't an opinion stat.

I wouldn't make a trade for revis for anything, because he's gonna be free agent after this coming season no matter how much you give up for him.

That's a bit strong of a criticism. We saw this season how much of a difference Rak makes; and for the entirety of '11 he was playing injured. Certainly he hasn't been what we hoped, and he definitely isn't the game changer that Revis is, but he's a very good player who would start on any team; you can't reasonably expect much more than that from a mid-first round pick. You can want more and you can hope for more, but you can't expect more. He's far from a bust.

Re: Darrelle Revis is up for trade per Jets owner

I would rather sign Talib and use 1st two picks on secondary than trading for Revis and and signing him to a huge contract.

Re: Darrelle Revis is up for trade per Jets owner

I love RAK like the rest of us here and I hope he stays in DC and proves me wrong but he's really only had 1 good year and i'm not saying Kerrigan is better but he at least plays every game. I guess we'll see next season if Rak can be that guy for us

Re: Darrelle Revis is up for trade per Jets owner

I worry bout the reoccurance of that injury with Rak. I like Rak and think he is an important part of the defense and would like to see him stay. I dont think he is a bust, but I do think he is replacable. Hopefully he comes back 100% and gets double digit sacks.

Re: Darrelle Revis is up for trade per Jets owner

Rak has been far from a bust. A two time Pro Bowler? Avg of almost 10 sacks per season in his first 3 years? C'mon now.

Just another example of how that term "bust" gets tossed around way too easily.

Ok Ok well maybe I'm just bitter that he hasn't been that DWare type of player but I don't think he's a Bum by any means. I just expected more from him after that great rookie yr. If Griffin's numbers go down in years 2,3 and misses all of year 4 some would call him a bust I'm sure.

Rak has been rock solid and consistent. Look at his numbers during years 1-3, practically mirror images of each other.

Brian Orakpo: Career Stats at NFL.com

So he's not D-Ware, not many guys are.

But when you have two OLB's in the 3-4 that can bring you around 10 sacks each per year like Kerrigan and Rak, that's pretty damn good.

The term bust should be reserved for guys that flat out can't play. Just a pet peeve of mine.
