Defensive Line Shining

During the heart of the off season it was fun to daydream the possibilities of what the Redskins revamped defensive line could accomplish. Since the off season has finally manifested into preseason football, several of the positive thoughts and hopeful wishes for QB sacks, QB pressures, and collapsed pockets have come to fruition.

I know it’s only the preseason but I can not stop raving about Brian Orakpo. He embodies raw speed and power that once is harnessed will be a threat to any quarterback not in a Redskins jersey.

On the first pass play of the Steelers vs. Redskins game, Andre Carter flanked a bull-rushing Albert Haynesworth and batted the ball down. It looked almost too easy. Kedric Golston was in the trenches getting dirty as well.

The ‘Skins first team defensive line looked to be in regular season from. And when the second and third team D.line entered, the QB pressure did not let up at all. In particular, #95 Chris Wilson. His speed rushes caused problems for the Steelers reserves, but more importantly solidified the growing notion that the Redskins D.line will have some serious depth with him and Jeremy Jarmon.
