People are right to get on him about the dropped INTs. It's his job to make those interceptions and there are absolutely no excuses to why he's dropped the ones he's had. Absolute game changers (or game enders in cases) had he just held onto the ball. His interviews how he describes himself being up there with the elite CBs, except for the interceptions. Well duh Carlos, that's because the elite guys make those plays. Hell, even the scrub guys make those plays.

The pay he just got reflects his value on the open market. I imagine he's humbled as hell right now and should be working on hand/eye coordination right now instead of worrying about what's going on in the local clubs and what your teammate is being paid.

Re: Carlos Rogers Drops His Heart in San Francisco

For those that are saying Rogers was a bust, I seriously disagree. He started since his rookie year. He was not a top cb but was in the next tier IMO. He had some bad times w/double moves & we all know about the drops.

Drafts are all relative. Don't compare him to Champ Bailey, who is one of the all time greats. Instead, compare him to the others in his class. Two CBs were picked ahead of him; Pacman Jones & Antrell Rolle. He was a better cb than both. Rolle has become a decent safety but wasn't much of a cb for a top 10 pick.

Re: Carlos Rogers Drops His Heart in San Francisco

Carlos takes a slap back into reality.

He'll be a step down from Clements to the Niners.

Week 9 at Fed-Ex, Carlos is getting torched by Hankerson.

Re: Carlos Rogers Drops His Heart in San Francisco

Rogers is absolutely not a bust. But he's certainly not one of the game's elites either. Never has been, probably never will be.

He's already start semi-bashing the team, talking about how they don't keep their own...yet he has no issue going to a team that just let Aubrayo Franklin and Nate Clements walk.

I wish him well, but his time here was long past its expiration date

Exactly, especially when Demarcus Ware was picked a few choices afterwards and Aaron Rodgers was still on the board.. Ah Joe 2.0, how you set the franchise back..

Anyways, good riddance to Rogers, one of my least favorite Redskins of recent time.. His ego far out paced his talent and production. I never got why he had so many supporters. He was beaten, benched, quit (IMO in 2009) and never took any responsibility. Kick rocks Carlos, enjoy the Bay.

I guess he missed the fact we kept Moss, Blades, Grossman, Buchanon, and Westbrook.

Well, Paintrain, you win this round. In the sense at least that some of my least favorite Redskins of all time are still on the team.

At least we'll go five and eleven this year with a team of "good guys", completely free of those divas that contribute to teams winning games.

Well hell you could find 100's of picks around number 7 that would show he was not a bust. As far as his ego I always fell WR and CB need that for some reason. I also think that our D's problems last year hurt him as much as anything.

The 49ers have really had one of the worst offseasons of any team. They needed a QB, so they re-signed Alex Smith for a 5th chance. Maybe Harbaugh can finally get him to succeed, but there were better options out there. They lost a solid NT and CB...and really have not added anyone of real impact, Rogers included. They subtracted a lot more than they added, but they did it without being in cap trouble like Dallas...it's like they're trying to make Jim Harbaugh's job tougher.

Also, Crabtree is out 4-6 weeks with a foot injury and Gore wants paid and WAS holding out. If not for the new holdout fines, he'd be neutering that team.

I expect to see Kaepernick under center by the time we play them in Week 9.

So they need a QB and lost a CB and NT. Who does that sound like?

We didn't lose a NT.

I agree that they are taking backwards steps for this year.

But looked at charitably, these might be the first steps in the long process of roster overhaul by the new regime. It is hard to judge a successful long-term turnover by just the first steps.

I'm not saying that they will be successful, just trying to view the 9ers charitably.

Re: Carlos Rogers Drops His Heart in San Francisco

Carlos....still talking smack quote: “I didn’t have any plans of going back to Washington,” Rogers told Grant Paulsen of 106.7 The Fan in a phone interview. “I wanted to go elsewhere. I thought it was time for me to move on.”


Rogers was philosophical about his time in Washington and moving on. “You know how Washington is. They’re always big in free agency and not signing their guys back and getting other players.”

Re: Carlos Rogers Drops His Heart in San Francisco

I'm disappointed to see him walk out the door with such bitterness, because I'm always going to have somewhat of a soft spot for most of the players on that 2005 roster, Carlos included, even if his most notable play that season was the dropped pick against the Seahawks. Getting six consecutive years of solid work from a player in one uniform isn't so common anymore, and for that reason my own appreciation for him grew each year. As I said, I'm sorry he was so pi**ed at the end of his stay. I also wish him well.
