The bloggers at ESPN.com recently voted on the Top 10 pass rushers in the NFL. One player who didn’t make the list is not happy about it.
Redskins defensive end Brian Orakpo, who didn’t get a single Top 10 vote from anyone on the eight-person panel of voters, went on Twitter today and offered a profane reaction.
“I seen some list rankin the top 10 pass rushers and left me off. F–K THEM im gonna kill the league next season,” Orakpo wrote (hyphens added by PFT).
It’s easy to see why Orakpo, who has 19.5 sacks in his two NFL seasons, is disappointed that he didn’t make the list. On the other hand, Orakpo’s 8.5 sacks in 2010 ranked him 24th in the league. So it’s not unreasonable that he’s not considered one of the Top 10 pass rushers in football.
