One of the reasons I don't think the Skins could switch back to a 4-3 is lack of linebackers. Jackson has adapted well to the position in my opinion, though. I could see him, Fletcher and Riley as 3 backers in a 4-3.
He just keeps making plays.
Jackson should start getting a little more attention now and Kerrigan might start coming free more often. Today he was unblocked a few times.
Jackson has a natural feel for pass coverage that has resulted in some big plays in coverage. I wish his production i.e. pressures and sacks weren't being limited by the rotation that often takes him off the field on pass rushing downs, Jackson's best skill is his pass rushing and he's not getting as many chances as he should.
He deserves the game ball from my perspective. Everything changed the moment he got that pick.
Kerrigan is an outstanding player and I love having him on our defense. But he certainly benefitted in a major way last year due to Orakpo. Now Jackson is benefitting from the attention that Kerrigan draws. So for anyone to think that Jackson is a better player or makes Orakpo expendable when he is the number one player that opposing offenses gameplan for or guy that we set the rest of our defense up around is just asinine. If Orakpo comes back healthy next year, he and Kerrigan will again be one of the best pass rushing duo's in the league and now we have another weapon in Jackson to bring in on pass rushing situations. But he is no where near the player that Orakpo is.
And you're absolutely right - as Jackson starts to make more plays and get more respect/attention, Kerrigan should again have more opportunities for one-on-one situations. He was unblocked several times today and also had several QB pressures where he was inches from a sack. He may still get to double digits on the year if he has a big couple games against Philly and Dallas and I would love to see it.

No need to get rid of Orakpo plus he gets pressure on the edge even if he doesn't get the sack.
Another excellent Vinny draft pick....wait....I mean, one of the only excellent Vinny draft picks!
Rob Jackson just makes plays!
