Congratulations to the Skins’ Outside Linebacker Brian Orakpo, who was named to the Pro Bowl 2010 Team today. He’ll be headed to Hawaii Miami for the only Postseason action any of the Redskins see this year (unless you count Shaun Suisham going with the Cowboys…) in the Pro Bowl. Orakpo’s 11 sacks share the team lead, and he remains the one good thing that Vinnie Cerrato did, so I suppose that’s something to be comforted by, Skins fans.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.

  1. The Pro Bowl is in Miami this year. It’s also going to be the weekend before the Super Bowl to help promote the Super Bowl. Though, Orakpo definitely deserved it. It’s nice to see even a rookie’s play can be recognized. He’ll be a key figure on that defense for a long time

  2. Congrats to Orakpo for making the Pro Bowl, but he did not make the ALL-PRO team. I don’t believe that has been announced yet – and it is a much bigger honor because it encompasses not just the NFC, but all of the NFL.
