Orakpo guarantees dominant defense
Brian Orakpo has been one of the many Redskins who've talked about the "embarrassing" way the the team played on Monday Night. But Orakpo has perhaps gone further than his teammates in guaranteeing a change.
During an unusually candid interview with Rredskins Nation on Wednesday, Orakpo busted out the G word when Larry Michael asked him about the team's maligned 3-4 defensive scheme.
"Let me put it out there," Orakpo said, looking into the camera. "The 3-4 is a great defense, but you've got to understand, we're coming from a situation where it's completely different: personnel, cultures, everything. So it's gonna take some growing pains. Everybody went through it: Green Bay, Dallas, Pittsburgh had their down years, Arizona. Everybody went through their growing pains.
And I want everybody to know out there that trust me, we will get this right. And we will be a dominant, dominant defense for years to come, with myself, London and the rest of the crew - LaRon Landry - leading the way. And I guarantee that."
We've seen just about every brand of sports story coming out of Ashburn in recent years, but I can't think of a guarantee story. Interesting twist.
