Brian Orakpo Doesn't Make List Of Top Ten Pass Rushers, Isn't Pleased About it

ESPN just came out with a list of the top ten pass rushers in the NFL, voted on by eight of the Network's NFL "experts." I put experts in quotation marks because somehow, they left Brian Orakpo off their list. Here is what Orakpo tweeted about it (with a minor edit to make it SFW).

Dan Steinberg dug a little bit deeper and found out that Orakpo didn't even make the top 17 of the list, which is an absolute travesty. As Homer McFanboy points out, Orakpo has had more sacks than Julius Peppers (8) and John Abraham (7), and is tied with Cameron Wake (10).

This isn't a list about who is the best defensive end, or even who is the best football player overall. This list is strictly about getting to the quarterback, and there is no way you can leave Orakpo off it. I can understand his frustration. Let's hope there is a season next year for him to kill.
