Orakpo "100%" and "Ready to Wreak Havoc"

Postby ACW » Tue Apr 16, 2013 2:29 pm

http://www.csnwashington.com/football-w ... 00-percent
“Health is great,” Orakpo said Friday evening on Comcast SportsNet during a guest appearance on Redskins Nation. “I’m good, man, I’m feeling great. Rehab has been going tremendously well. I’m 100-percent …to be honest, I’m great, man, my body is feeling even better than what it was before as far as conditioning and strength-wise. Because one thing when you get hurt is you get to work on all the little muscles that you have a tendency to [overlook].”
But I have some huge goals for myself this year, some huge goals for this team. I’m ready to wreak havoc. I’m ready to get my crown back as far as putting hell to these quarterbacks in the NFC East and all over the NFL.”
A healthy Orakpo and 3rd-year Kerrigan? :twisted:

Right on, Orakpo. Sounds like he is hungry. We're going to need it.

The problem with Rak being back is it puts Rob Jackson on the bench and he is a better overall LB than Rak is.

No, he can't pass rush anywhere near as well as Rak can, but he is MUCH better in pass coverage than Rak and plays the run just as well.

If PR or LF went down I would loved to see RJ get some time at ILB!

You know... Hmm... I can't disagree with you, but I don't know if I'm ready to say he's better overall. I dunno...

This is a team game - the coaches know better than you do who who helps the other players around them

Jackson MIGHT be a better 'overall LB' but that is not as important as who is the better fit with the other players

Jackson MIGHT be better in pass coverage but he's not 'MUCH better' and we don't really know what the coaches are seeing

you could be right about Jackson but I'll wait and see who's playing .... that will tell me who is REALLY the better fit for the defense

btw - I'm just glad we have both players - we know they're ALL focused on making the players around them better ... NOT being 'better' than someone else :twisted:

Robert has to make a huge effort to show he's got what it takes to be a future great QB - we need the real RG3 not the hyped version

RJ is definitely better in coverage than Rak. In everything else, including run defense, and especially, as SF33 pointed out, in pass rush, I see Rak as demonstrably better. Therefore, I don't see how you can conclude that RJ is better overall. If there are 3 things that are being evaluated in the comparison, and Rak is better (for me by far) in 2/3, then doesn't that make him better over all because math?

I can't say that Jackson is better than Rak after a PARTIAL SEASON.... Just like in the other thread, I can't call RGIII the best QB in the league after a rookie season...

It's easy to underrate Orakpo because after a promising start he's had a couple of disappointing seasons.

It's easy to overrate Jackson because he's up-and-coming and played out of his mind at the end of last year.

Orakpo is still the better overall player. We'd be crazy not to start him if he's healthy. Work Jackson in wherever you can.

Just in case I was unclear, I do like RJ's coverage skills better, by a hair, but unequivocally think Rak is the better player. In fact, as I've said before I think Rak is our best OLB, period.

I just don't agree that having Orakpo back playing is a 'problem' like SF33 is pointing to in his post

I think that having both these guys on our squad and ready to contribute is a good thing

Coaches plan against Rak and he still shines.

If Rob started this year and didn't have the element of surprise of being an unknown, would he still shine?

Thats why I can't crown anyone after a year or less of play. Let's talk in season 3 of them starting.
