What a novel concept.

J-Dawg.
Rogers possibly has the worst ball skills of any CB in the league. In last years Week 3 game vs. the NYG, if he reacted to the ball, not the man on the Plax TD, it would have been AT WORST a bat down, if not a pick. He's pretty much just a mirror that tries to reflect what the WR is doing with no regard for the football.

I still cringe at the playoff game in Seattle when Rogers dropped a sure INT and run back for a TD. Such an easy pass to catch also. Anyone else remember that from the 1st Joe Gibbs playoff visit to Seattle?

Seriously... Smoot gives a ridiculous cushion to every receiver on the field. The only reason he even registered an INT last week is because he was five yards away from any Giants receiver, and Eli made a terrible throw.

Oh, and Rogers brings the wood, while Smoot gets hurt making tackles...

Yeah, and just think, at the time we all chalked that up to rookie jitters... If we only knew!

Re: C. Rogers Bad Hands

Rogers at least appears to be improving while Smoot is clearly regressing. I don't think he's starting quality anymore at all. The quicker we can move him back to the nickel the better.

Re: C. Rogers Bad Hands

Smoot tends to be a bit of an overachiever in my opinion. There's no shame in being a nickelback in the NFL, but that's probably the best he can hope to be. Rogers on the other hand. I don't know, maybe it's just wishful thinking but he could be one of the league's best if he just held on to the damn ball.

Re: C. Rogers Bad Hands

Yeah some more INTs would be nice, but at the same time if all we get from Rogers is tight coverage and pass defenses, that's not a bad thing either. Darrell Green dropped his fair share and he turned out alright.

Re: C. Rogers Bad Hands

Carlos doesn't have bad hands. He leads the team in pass deflections every year!

Re: C. Rogers Bad Hands

I thought Smoot dropped one in the end Zone as well in like the second quarter. I know we dropped at least 3 and it was not all Carlos, although he probably does have the worst hands on the team.

Was it last year or the year before where we ended up with 3 picks in a game but could have had atleast 6 or 7? And of those drops, a few of them made it look like the DB was the receiver.

He drops some balls but that was not one of them. He turned a flung out his arm and hit the ball he was not in postion to make the int.

Re: C. Rogers Bad Hands

On a positive note, I'm just glad we have something Rogers-related to talk about this early in the season other than his knee injury. If he wasn't ready last week AND Springs couldn't go, that 16-7 score might have looked quite a bit worse.

Re: C. Rogers Bad Hands

I still haven't forgiven him for that sure TD against the Seahawks in the playoffs. Could have been the differnce maker. Has not shown any improvement.

Re: C. Rogers Bad Hands

I wonder if they have these guys work with the WR's coach and have them catch some balls in prctice.

Re: C. Rogers Bad Hands

Williams brought Rogers in to be a physical corner. The downside is that his hands are wretched.

...You can't have it all, at least not with Rogers.
