Re: Rogers Frustrated By Some Redskins Fans

I'll like to touch base on one more thing Carlos said. He implied that they play so much better on the road. Does he watch the games?

Re: Rogers Frustrated By Some Redskins Fans

My frustration with Redskins is nothing compared to my frustration with constantly seeing his sorry ass drop a sure pick. A little bit of my soul dies when the ball he almost intercepted hits the ground.

Wow, kind of an overreaction -- he didn't really say anything to light that kind of fire. He hasn't played great but it's not like he insulted the fans, just kind of mentioned that it's tough and he understands why some fans are upset.

That is true, but have they really played that much better?

Rams - dud
Eagles - great for 1 half, dud for the other
Bears - awful offense, great defense or Jay Cutler having another Jeff George moment
Lions - dud
Titans - Thank you Will Monty and Heyer the Guard. Honorable mentions go to Vince Young and Rusty Smith sucking ass.

Re: Rogers Frustrated By Some Redskins Fans

The big deal is - rogers is making it any deal at all. This shouldn't even be on any player's minds, let alone being discussed. There is only so much time that can be spent on discussing, focusing on, and working on to win the next game and also improve on. I don't think that this should be wasted on by anybody on the team to even think about. This is why this upsets me. Are the fans going to catch those dropped interceptions for Rogers? ... are the fans helping Rogers to work on improving his game? ... these are rhetorical questions, but the real question is: what is Rogers really choosing to focus on? This fan sh*t?

As fans, we can choose to discuss this ... but as football players, they shouldn't have the luxury to discuss something so trivial to how they perform on the field. And if it's not trivial to the players, god help them cause based on this obviously they're going to need all the help they can get if having fan support is this important for them to win. Just think about one good reason why he drops interceptions - lack of focus. So rogers chooses to focus on what? fan support...alrighty then. Ok I can't seem to hold on to interceptions, so let me give myself another distraction to focus on... yeah it's because the team lacks fan support. Come on. Am I the only one seeing it this way and having it make ME frustated?

Here's some advice for you, use pride as motivation or inspiration or whatever floats your boat. Then start staying SEVERAL HOURS after practice catching the ball or working on drills that help you catch the ball. Man it's just amazing that some players say it's this or that that's causing them to not perform as well as they'd like, but they don't even do the most obvious. Just shut your mouth and work more. Until there are reports that he's doing this, just shuddup.

This is should sum up my beef with what he's talking about.

Re: Rogers Frustrated By Some Redskins Fans

Over the last 18 years the Redskins have been losers...Roger and company will have to excuse the fans for not being giddy about losers. Yeah, we had playoff years but those very few years don't make the pain of rooting for losers more bearable.

Re: Rogers Frustrated By Some Redskins Fans

“Me and some of the guys were talking about that earlier..."

Please tell me that Rogers didn't actually say he was talking about this with other players. This is what they are talking and thinking about when they were playing the game?... no freaking wonder why he drops interceptions and the team's record is not any better than 5-6. It could easily be 7-4 if they didn't sit around publicly or privately blaming some of the team's failures on fan support.

Just imagine hearing a TV analyst/reporter saying this during the game ... and Carlos Rogers drops another interception. You can blame that again on the lack of fan support. It was really bad right before the ball hits his hands. Let's watch and analyze the fans' support or lack of it again on instant replay...

Someone here also brought up the good point that many fans he hears may not even be fans of the Redskins anyway.

I don't see what the big deal is anyway. He spoke the truth.

But Rogers knows as much as any other player that many fans boo just to boo, and you should never expect any support from them.
By Rogers, being the sensitive type individual that he is, I understand where he's coming from. It's a battle he can't win, and has opened himself up to be further critiqued because of his inability to handle so many potential interception possibilities. That's where so many fans are having a field-day with his comments. I don't doubt the fact there are other players on the team that feel the same way Carlos does, they just won't say it publicly. He may have served himself better had he taken the same approach.

They probably wouldn't say so publicly if they did.

Re: Rogers Frustrated By Some Redskins Fans

Carlos Rogers is the LAST individual that should ever say anything in regards to how fans act. Here is a clue Carlos. Stop giving them a reason to BOO your sorry ass. That means actually catching a interception when it means something. That means not giving up a big play and you turn to the nearest guy and act like it was his fault. Yeah Carlos, we boo your asses because you suck. You are deserving of the BOOs and you will continue to get it until you start giving the fans a reason not to boo. That means not complaining during the off season about your contract, then coming into the season dropping INT after INT that could potentially win (or secure) victories for this team.

The best quote I heard in regards to this was:

"you can't ask the fans to be the 12th man when the first 11 don't show up themselves."

Re: Rogers Frustrated By Some Redskins Fans

the way i look at it is we fans spend a crap load of money on tickets to go to the games and pay their salaries. If we want to boo at the piss poor play then as fans we have that right. Not taking anything away from it being right or wrong, but give us something to cheer about and the booing stops. It is really that simple. I have been going to the games since I was like 5, and honestly i never really remember fans booing at RFK, it has gotten exceptionally bad the last few years. And I understand why. I live in Charlotte now and can't go to many games, but i sit and curse the TV and say we stink all the time. I would probably be joining in on the booing if I was sitting there watching the crap they have been putting on the field.
