Re: Rogers Ready to Move On

The what-could've-been interceptions will always be a source of frustration with Rogers--Exhibit A being the 2005 playoff game in Seattle (or am I shortchanging another one?). But over the last few years, I've viewed his position at corner as being at least one of the positions that we don't have a glaring shortcoming at. I don't really see us as being in a position to write a player off for being good but not great. I'd be disappointed to see him go.

Right!!! If we do have to play him twice a year, at least we know who to throw at in the 4th quarter.

(sidenote; just saw Ike on Rome is burning, and the guy talks like his tongue got cut off.)
Yeah Ike said he's chasing the paper.

Only have to worry about 4 or 5 plays a game while the Safety's and Front 7 do all the dirty work.

Re: Rogers Ready to Move On

It's funny fans gush over DeAngelo Hall and they guy is absolutely horrible and has cost us more games than he's remotely won, but they destroy Carlos because the guy can't catch a cold. It's what I said about QBs, people only see the ESPN highlights, think that person is good at said position and repeat ad nauseum. See my D. Hall thread for proof.

Carlos > Hall

That said, he (nor Hall) deserve big time money because one can't catch shit, the other can't cover shit.

You aren't the only person I've heard this from.

Re: Rogers Ready to Move On

"You hear that the Cowboys and Eagles are looking for a corner. It would be fun to play against the Redskins twice a year."

Not that he needs a change a scenary, or he needs to keep all his options open or he needs to think about his future or its a business. I understand all those previous quotes, but to come out and say Id join the Cowboys or Eagles our greatest rivals with out thinking twice...come'on man thats blasphemy round here and dude knows better. Eff you Carlos get the hell out then, join them.

Re: Rogers Ready to Move On

It's a real shame. Despite the fact that he couldn't catch a cold he did what it took to stop opposing receivers more so than most CBs. It's going to be difficult replacing him in the lineup unless it's with Nnamdi Asomugha].

Re: Rogers Ready to Move On

I get his frustration that he feels like with Springs and Hall he never got treated like the #1 guy. And was even benched a couple of times

But what was the last big play he made for us?

So what? Los should be remembered as the #1 corner for the team with the fewest turnovers in history. Maybe he'll produce for someone else. Smoot felt like he was underpaid and underappreciated too.

Had the dude caught just a fraction of those dropped INTs, he would have been regarded as probably one of the best CBs in the league. As it is, he didn't and he isn't.

This. ^ He can definitely cover better than D. Hall but Edward Scissorhands could catch more balls than Carlos.
