Re: Carlos Rogers Article

Yeah, I don't understand why he plays so far off the ball either. Is he supposed to play closer but doesn't? Or does Williams tell him to play that far off?

somebody on here said that it's his choice, but that doesn't sound like something GW would let him decide. It would be 1 thing if he played like that & didn't get beat deep, but he does get beat deep!

Re: Carlos Rogers Article

It sounds like he is young and self absorbed. When he comes back to earth, he will do just fine. Maybe signing Clemons and pushing him to nickle would do the trick.

Re: Carlos Rogers Article

Re: Carlos Rogers Article

Yeah, I had a real problem with this article. While he's right that his season would seem more impressive with 6 ints on his stat line, and while that almost certainly would have translated into a few more wins, the larger problem with is play this season has been coverage, pure and simple. Even with 5 or more picks, he still would be getting burned on a consistent week to week basis. This kid has a long way to go, which is okay, but doesn't seem to recognize the work he still needs to put in, and that has me very very worried.

Same reason Buffalo didn't use him as a corner that last few seasons. He's not old, he's mesozoic....

Re: Carlos Rogers Article

Yes, I think that Rogers should be demoted to backup, made into a nickel back, or traded. We wouldn't get a high draft choice for him I wouldn't think.

We will hopefully sign Nate Clements, though I doubt that is any kind of a certainty. Springs is someone we can't rely on in terms of his health, but he is too good to give up on either. So I would start Springs again next year and perhaps make Rogers the backup to Springs.

Rogers could get turned around eventually if he listens. But how can he go to defensive meetings and come away with the conclusion that he is having a Pro Bowl year (once you take all the INTs he missed out of the picture)? Isn't there anyone giving him a dose of realism? Is he being coddled by the defensive coaches? It sure sounds likely.

Re: Carlos Rogers Article

Letting him go is not an option so it shouldn't even be considered. The whole team including Carlos need to commit to being better. I don't think they worked as hard as they needed to and it started with the easy training camp.

Everyone complains that there is too much turnover, that we need to build through the draft and that the overpaying for free agents needs to stop. So what is their suggestion on Rogers? Sign Nate Clements and trade Rogers. Brilliant...

He is 100% correct by pointing out that more pressure up front would make his job easier.

Next year will be different!

Re: Carlos Rogers Article

Am I the only one who thought Rogers sounded like an idiot in that article? His comments were borderline incoherent.

Re: Carlos Rogers Article

i can think of three players drafted below him who i would rather have, but this after the fact so i know on some of them u just didnt about them yet.

1 merrimam-even with the steriods suspension.
2. demarcus ware-didnt know much about him out of college
3. luis castillo-he has character issues at northwestern and has some trouble in the pros.
