wow, dude. do you even WATCH the games?? orakpo is held ALL THE TIME. when he's held, he's so close to sacking the qb's, it's almost a certainty. kinda hard to get a sack when ur being choked...
come on people the man is being held
I guess you missed the fact he was being held on every play and still was generating pressure
Is this a joke topic? It would be one thing if he was getting handled in 1 on 1 situations. He's beating his man. His man is holding him and the refs aren't calling it. It was crazy how much Jason Peter was holding Rak today.
I seriously want to know who has had more holding penaties called on them this year than orakpo if you can find any player id be amazed
OP need to re-watch games...i usually count 3-4 holds that I notice that does not get called.
He's the LEAST of our worries.
A holding penalty is not as good as a sack. You're giving the offense an extra down to convert and we've been terrible at getting off the field this year.
Orakpo gets held, because he can't beat guys cleanly. Any O-lineman in the league is going to take a holding penalty over a sack. The prolific passrushers don't give them the opportunity to hold.
Right now, he's like the defensive version of the WR who draws a lot of PI fouls, but can't actually catch the ball. Constantly looking for flags at the end of a play will only get you so far.
