The Washington Football team has first-rounders scattered all over their defensive front.

The oldest among them was the best this week.

Ryan Kerrigan was named NFC defensive player of the week for his work in their win over the Eagles.

He had two sacks and a fumble recovery, part of a swarming front.

The 2011 first-rounder is one of five premium picks they have up front, and he proved he can still get it done at a high level.

    Yeah it’s crazy man. Washington’s second string D-Line could be starting line for aseveral teams. Matt Ioannidus isn’t a starter either. That guy is highly underrated.

  2. My mother in law could’ve been defensive player of the week going against that Eagles line…

  3. It should also be noted that the two sacks tied and then surpassed Dexter Manley’s all-time franchise record.

    If he can hang on for a few more productive years, he could have a sneaky HoF case. 30 more sacks would put him in the top 20 all-time and 36 would put him in the top 10.

    Something like 6 sacks per year for this and four more years isn’t out of the realm of possibility.
