The 5 O’Clock Club: Redskins iron man - Ryan Kerrigan The 5 o’clock club is published Wednesday to Saturday during the season http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/dustin-hopkins-jersey-cheap , and aims to provide a forum for reader-driven discussion at a time of day when there isn’t much NFL news being published. Feel free to introduce topics that interest you in the comments below.Ryan Kerrigan career statistics (2011-2017)From 2011 to 2017, Ryan Kerrigan started 112 of a possible 112 games.Add to that his two playoff games in 2012 and 2015 versus the Seahawks and the Packers, and his three regular season starts in 2018 against the Cardinals, Colts and Packers and the Redskins’ 2011 first round pick (16th overall) has 115 consecutive regular season starts — 117 including playoffs.The fact that he’s made it through more than 7 seasons without missing a sin23acf1d54d065dec55f151e703080f9c.jpggle opening whistle is pretty astounding.But equally impressive is what he’s done with his time on the field. Kerrigan is not a specialty pass-rusher; he is a stand up outside linebacker in a 3-4 base defense who is frequently called upon to drop into coverage.Despite that, Ryan Kerrigan has been a model of consistency when it comes to sacking the quarterback.Across 7 full seasons, he’s been credited with 71.5 sacks, or about 10.2 per year. Damn Skippy!And it’s not like he’s got any outliers.His three lowest sack totals were in his first three seasons, when he accounted for 7.5, 8.5 and 8.5 sacks. That would be a career for many players, but Kerrigan simply got better, piling up 47 sacks in the past 4 years (nearly 12 per season!).But wait, there’s more!Twenty two forced fumbles in seven seasons.Let me repeat that... he’s averaging double-digit sacks http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/jamison-crowder-jersey-cheap , and forcing three fumbles per year (and he’s never had a season without at least two forced fumbles).Just in case you thought I was done, I want to stitch together three columns in Ryan Kerrigan’s career statistics for you.Look at “INT”, “IR YDS” and “TD” for a moment. You’ll see the following:2011 1-9-12012 1-28-12017 1-24-1Yep.Three career interceptions — every one a pick-6!!Photo by Patrick McDermott/Getty ImagesSo, let me recap:Kerrigan hasn’t missed a start in his entire 7 year careerHe averages: 10 sacks, 3 forced fumbles, 3 passes defended, and 39 tackles per seasonand about every other year he grabs a pick-6Thank you Mike Shanahan, wherever you are.Links:Every play by Ryan Kerrigan vs Green BayIs Ryan Kerrigan “elite”?Photo by Rick Stewart/Getty ImagesShould the Redskins be worried about the Arizona Cardinals? Team: Arizona Cardinals2017 Record: 8-8 (3rd, NFC West)Outlook: The Cardinals won their last two games of the 2017 season to rally for a .500 finish in Bruce Arians’ swan song.Considering the instability at quarterback (Carson Palmer, Blaine Gabbert, and Drew Stanton each started at least four games), and the injury to stud running back David Johnson in the season opener http://www.washingtonredskinsteamonline.com/tress-way-jersey , a break-even year wasn’t bad.Now, the Cardinals are banking on Sam Bradford bringing some consistency under center.Larry Fitzgerald is back after one of the best years of his career at age 34.The defense has solid personnel, led by All-Pro Chandler Jones.The big question, though, is how much time it will take for the Cardinals to gel under Steve Wilks’ new coaching regime (not to mention with a new quarterback).The Redskins beat this team last year in Landover by a 20-15 score.How Worried Should We Be?: Somewhat worried, but no need to panic.The game is on the road, and David Johnson scares me a lot.Not great.On the other hand, the Cardinals thought to themselves, “We need stability at quarterback” and their solution was to go out and sign a guy who has missed 42 games since 2013.I also think getting the Cardinals early helps the Redskins, as Arizona is likely to improve over the course of the year as they become more comfortable with Bradford and the new staff finds its way. Custom Oakland Raiders Jerseys
