Rogers can be solid, he just needs to hold on to the ball. He is strong and thrives in press coverage and he is very confident in his man coverage abilities. If he could hold on to the damn ball he will be a pro bowl corner.

Re: Scout's Inc. DB Rankings: We're #10

But the thing is right after hr makes a great play he will counter it with 4 consecutive bad ones. his only problem is using too much of a cushion, try gambling and jumping routes. Look at how well it worked for Champ, Shawn in 2004, Fred Smoot when he was here and Asante Samuel in 2006. that is what he needs to do more, and Fred Smoot has been showing him how to anticipate routes i hope because Springs hasnt down.

rogers is just a average corner. We should have drafted merriman would have filled a huge need on defense a pass rusher.

Right now he is...I have to agree with him.
He has the "potential" to be much more...but potential is nothing if not utilyzed.
ps- I think we are all underestimating Smoot...he is going to be a GREAT addition. He will easily win the #2 spot and could be a pro bowler. He is going to perform the way he should have in Minn.

Rogers will have a breakout season. Football is all about confidence and with our new roster Rogers should have all the confidence needed. He would probably be our 3rd corner that means now instead of going up against T.O on every play and being on the field every play, he comes in on Nickle situations (fresh legs) looks across from him and its Patrick Crayton, thats a BIG diefference. Slot reciever SHUT DOWN

I am not underestimating him. I think by week 6 he and Rogers will have outpreformed Springs moving him to nickel.

I don't have a big beef with #10, because its well within our abilities, but its assuming a bunch of things:
  • That Taylor will improve his pass coverage
  • That Rogers will improve his pass coverage
  • That Archuleta was as horrible statically last year as he was anecdotelly, and that replacing him with the run of the mill SS (either a rookie Landry, or a journeyman) actually improves our defense.
  • That Springs will be healthy, and if not, Smooty can step in with little to no dropoff.
  • Or that Laron Landry starts off what will be a historically great career with a much better than expected rookie performance. (Because if Scouts Inc is assuming Landry to be anything above replacement as a rookie DB, they really have to reexamine their methods of player eval).
  • And of course, that we get the right guys on the field regardless of reputation. If Taylor costs us a lot of touchdowns right off the bat, sit him to clear his head, or at the very least to improve the team. Same goes for Rogers. Don't abuse Landry before he is ready.
