He just can't catch plain and simple.

Re: Possible Reason for Carlos's Problems?

You guys don't know yet,but everything is just being set up for a Carlos Rogers Super Bowl INT return for a TD.

Down 31-26 with 5:00 to go...
Sanchez drops back to hit Edwards and BOOM! Rogers steps in front and takes it to the house....lol

He reminds me of that dude in that Gene Hackman football movie...
That WR they had to put super glue on his hands...super fast,but couldn't catch...lol

"Coach...I can't wear this...it looks like I jacked off an elephant"
lololbwahahaha

What ever the reason it has to be as frustrating to him as it is to the fans. The biggest problem is when its one that could put away a game and he can't pull in the ball.

Re: Possible Reason for Carlos's Problems?

if he had great hands he would be on the offense. i would like the turnovers but if he can keep knocking the ball down then good for us. however if you get hit in the hands with the ball.... come on, catch it.

Re: Possible Reason for Carlos's Problems?

All three of Carlos' interception chances have come from the slot this year, with him (eventually) making the catch on just one ball.

This is changing the subject a bit, but I think our scheme needs a dominant coverage safety more than any nose tackle or rush linebacker. Kareem Moore just isn't good enough, I don't think. We've received better-than-adequate play from our corners, and have a pretty consistently below average (certainly no better than average) pass defense.

Most completions in the void I mark as "hole in zone" and then chart the corner who had the first read. But it's really not so much the corner's fault if he's playing outside leverage in a cover three. If the free safety isn't instinctive enough and tough enough to punish receivers and offenses for throwing the same dig pattern over and over, offenses aren't going to stop doing it.

Oh, and Carlos Rogers can't catch.

Re: Possible Reason for Carlos's Problems?

There may be some truth to los having one bad eye. I was hit with a baseball bat to my left eye 8-9 years ago, had to have facial reconstructive surgery, screws, plates and a plastic thing right under my eyeball to hold it in place.

About 2 years ago I had to renew my license. On the vision test I couldnt read any of the lines and had to guess. The lady was going to fail me.

She asked if I ever had an eye injury, I told her about my injury. Then she suggested I try it with just one eye. I closed my left eye and looked only through my right, BAM I could read every line very clearly. she passed me. I was estatic and shocked. I didnt know that if i closed my bad eye, my vision was back to perfect, i just never tried it before.

so, los could have a problem in one eye and not know it. i didnt know it, i just thought my eye sight was going bad naturally b/c of all the reading i did/do.

there is truth to having one bad eye and vision problems and the person doesnt even know it.

Either he would have used it as an excuse for dropping all those picks, or the team would have leaked it as an excuse not to pay him big $.

He can cover pretty well, but the ball just bounces off his hands. He doesn't show any other issues on the field that would be symptomatic of depth perception problems. I think he just has iron thumbs.

Regardless, I'm certainly not going to be amongst the folks that continue to make excuses for him. Imagine if he would've hung on to even half of the picks that hit him in the hands? Dude would have his big contract and probably a pro-bowl or two in his pocket, not to mention we would have likely beaten the Seahawks in the playoffs that year...
Agreed, the team would know if there was some sort of correctable medical issue. Most vision problems can be corrected with surgery or even with contacts.

And he's conservatively had 15 balls hit him squarely in the hands since then without a clean pick. D. Hall might not tackle or cover as well, but at least he make plays. Rogers would have bobbled the Tashard Choice fumble out of bounds in the Dallas game.

Did he grow up in a house full of sisters...no brothers to play sports with? Maybe his mother hugged him TOO MUCH.

True, but aren't these all done by the Redskins staff? Remember Adam Archuleta? Didn't they say he was 100% fine even though he still had that back injury?

Don't trust our team doctors too much.

Re: Possible Reason for Carlos's Problems?

Im surprised that we hear about players just being diagnosed with abnormal heart beats and what not when theyve been in the league for awhile. Thats something I always thought an nfl team would notice right away when they do physicals/health check ups, etc. yet players play in the league for years without knowing it or being diagnosed with it.

Re: Possible Reason for Carlos's Problems?

That seems to go undiagnosed all of the time in athletes. Hank Gathers comes to mind right away and Reggie Evans from the Celtics.


Gaines Adams made it all the way to the NFL before discovering it too, retiring early rather than a worse fate.





We Could Prevent Another Hank Gathers. Here's Why We Don't.



edit: actually, after reading the article...Gathers knew about his and apparently didn't take his medication....sad.
