Let me first say that Brian Orakpo should be a very good player in Washington, and I think DL coach John Palermo has to be thrilled to work with this kid. Greg Blache will know where to put him, and Orakpo should see lots of single-blocking with Albert Haynesworth occupying two blockers nearly every down he's out there.

And I hate to make a negative turn here, but even with this fortunate turn, what do you think of the Redskins' situation right now?

I am talking about Jason Campbell, of course. The team admitted it tried to make a move for Jay Cutler, and there's no question in my mind they investigated moving up to get Mark Sanchez.

So now, can you turn back to Campbell and say, "Hey, you're our guy" without him wondering about where he really stands with the coaches, the front office and his teammates? I know most of the players like Campbell on the team, but if the higher-ups didn't want him what kind of message does that send to the player at the most important position on the field heading into the final year of his deal?

That said, congrats to Orakpo. The Redskins for getting a good one.
