Re: RI: Rogers doesn't know how long benching will last..

Im guessing the staff wants a guy that wants to be there rather than a guy thats good and just gives up big plays when things look bad! Can you blame them? Rodgers should of been benched....and especially with that attitude I ain't thinkin bout no future here (so you've already quit!?!? what kinda weak ass stuff is that?)

To add to that remember the season when Portis missed practice or whatever and Gibbs didn't give a damn a man who didn't practice doesn't play on his team and Gibbs benched him? Thats the attitude that needs to be brought about Portis, Betts is busting his ass he knows the playbook he executes debate over that over.

From what I have read on Orakpo's comments and what reporters explained what Orakpo said, it does not sound as if Orakpo will be one of those headcases.. It appears as if our d-line men is close to each other; I mean, even Orakpo was joking about how Carter and other players (d-line) re "getting there", as in getting old and they have had to work out harder.. So that is good sign..

I look forward to the time when he's long gone and we can say, "Carlos who?" I hope that whatever team he's on next year, whoever our QB is throws at him all day if/when we play against him.

He also says he was advised by Grey to give even MORE cushion to prevent future "mistakes." Yeah. Thats exactly what we need.

Well, either way, I guess we all can expect to see less of Rogers on field for rest of season.. But of course, I'm pretty sure this all depends on how Smoot and Tryon (and maybe Holmes?) performs on field.. If they do not play well, then perhaps Blache will have no choice but to put Rogers back in starting line up once again.. I can't help but continue to wonder what the hell is going on with Kevin Barnes? Barnes is not even one of the options for possible replacement for Rogers?

This brings up other vital question; we pretty much can expect for Rogers and Redskins to apart after this season, how are we going to replace him? Especially with Smoot gone, as well? Supposed Barnes and Tryon hasn't panned out as we had hope.. I just looked at JLC's free agent list and free agency pool for CB doesn't look good.. There is only one CB that is starter material and that is Dunta Robinson from Houston; however I'm pretty sure Houston will tag him with RFA.. We would only add burden on our FO to search for replacement for CB.. Leigh Bodden and Ken Lucas are other possibilities, however Bodden is more likely to resign with Patriots.. Panthers released Lucas for a reason..

Re: RI: Rogers doesn't know how long benching will last..

It's probably hard to imagine right now what with him basically being inactive every week...but I think Barnes is starting opposite Hall next year and Tryon is the nickel back. Possible though Smoot stays one more year and Tryon is the dime back.

Either way Barnes and Hall starting next year

Well, yea just like you said, it's hard to imagine it due to inactive status.. But this is something I would like to see, along with good outcomes..

how can you say that with Barnes not even getting into games this deep into the season.

Coaches might be waiting until if and when we are mathematically eliminated.

Here is an excellent article from CSN about Carlos' benching, and his future.
Contract Complicates Rogers' Outlook

There is more in this article, but I think this is a good example of a good coach.
