Re: Carlos Rogers Drops His Heart in San Francisco

Sad to see. Smootsmack pointed out a couple months ago that his agent was the same one that Dockery had when he left. Both guys wanted to stay but had an agent that thought they could get big $. Dock did, Los not so much. He should be here, would've been better for both sides, but it sounds like bridges were burned & both sides had to move on.

He likely lost his last chance at a good deal several months back w/the Skins. Testing the market is always a risk.

Watch him have a pro bowl year with the niners, would not surprise me. I wish we would have kept him.

If Rogers caught a few more balls that were thrown his way he'd be making Hall money. His ego got put in check but I really don't think Wilson is any better. He got burned several times last year.

Re: Carlos Rogers Drops His Heart in San Francisco

Everyone knows my position on this. Not happy to see him go, but it seemed like he really didn't want to be a Redskin. Regardless of how you feel about his skills, if his heart and mind are not fully committed to us it is best he moves on.

I'll miss Los and his coverage abilities. I won't miss his hands. Good luck Los and have some dungeness crab for me.

Re: Carlos Rogers Drops His Heart in San Francisco

Rodgers was a solid if unspectacular corner. Hopefully, Wilson makes the transition well and was not a product/beneficiary of the many other playmakers on the Ravens squad.

Regardless of his skills, and I think he was the best corner on the roster, I am glad he is gone - I get the feeling he was a mini-Haynesworth in some ways. Certainly seemed fairly divalicious at times and a bit of a pouter. I am pretty sure, just based on what he signed for and where, he just wanted to be outta here.

It would shock me. He's not a pro bowl corner. Never was, never will be. We saw his ceiling and it was not a top 10 corner.

Re: Carlos Rogers Drops His Heart in San Francisco

Here's my take on Rogers. He's a very good coverage corner and he can help just about any team. While people probably get on him too much on the dropped picks, I think is because our has always been in desperate need of a playmaker. Yet, I think that if he was better at holding on to picks, he could probably have gotten the money that he wanted from the Redskins or any other team.

The way i feel. I also think he was the best corner on the team and we are going to miss him. Wish we could of kept him
