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.

Re: Carlos Rogers Drops His Heart in San Francisco

His best year of play was in 2008, which he HAD to put in the work due to rehab. His coverage has dropped from that level since then, and I would say is slightly above average.

And of course, he likes to make the team play with fire with his drops. And YES, we have been BURNED by some of those drops.

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.”

After dropping two interceptions in the Redskins’ 27-24 loss to Indianapolis last year, he said: “I sit and think about it: ‘Man, I should have had them picks. Should have had four or five, pretty much probably leading the league or at the top. But my main thing is: I'm not going to get myself down because somebody outside of here — or whoever — talk about Carlos dropping picks...

“My main thing: I'd rather cover my man, cover the top receiver, lock him down, not let him catch the ball.”
Of course he would rather do that, he has no choice, he can't catch! lol

If he caught just half of the ones that hit him in the hands he would be dangerous.

Re: Carlos Rogers Drops His Heart in San Francisco

Seems to me Rodger didn't think the lack of interceptions was a big thing and didn't like the fact that he wasn't treated like a shut down corner by Washington. He just had a higher opinion of himself than anyone around the league did.

This is what Roy Hobbs4 had to say in the comments:

Carlos Rogers just proved in this article that the decision to get rid of him was the right one to make.

Rogers apparently lied about not wanting to come back to DC because the reports were this week that his agent contacted Washington about a contract a few days ago. So much for his bravado about not wanting to return.

Then the parting shot about the Redskins being big spenders and not wanting to resign their own players.

Wrong again Carlos. Jammal Brown, Phillip Buchanon, Santana Moss, HB Blades, Byron Westbrook, and now Rex Grossman were ALL resigned by the team for 2011.

Re: Carlos Rogers Drops His Heart in San Francisco

I think this was the right move unfortunately, it was at the wrong time...With Philip Buchanon out for the first 4 games, this poses a problem in our secondary. Truth be told, we may have won or at least contended if Carlos Rodgers didn't have butterfingers. He may have lead the NFL two out of the last three seasons in INT's.

Does anyone know why the Redskins are 30 million under the cap??? Seems trivial to me. I thought they would do better in free agency.

They may be looking at Kelvin Hayden, the CB from Indy.

And Tatupu, both scheduled to visit today. There's talent left on the market, the Redskins may not be finished just yet.

Re: Carlos Rogers Drops His Heart in San Francisco

Carlos Rogers is not an elite coverage player, but he's just a rung below that level. He has long been a poor match-up against bigger, more physical players who can obstruct his path to the ball. Luckily, that kind of player tends not to get vertical very fast.

Re: Carlos Rogers Drops His Heart in San Francisco

I really thought he was going to get a deal. There are tons of teams that were/now are in need of a corner, most notably Detroit, Oakland, Houston, Tennessee, Jacksonville, San Fransico, Seattle, Chicago, Cincinnati, Dallas and Arizona. Lots more could use him. I figured someone would bite.

If he caught half the balls that hit him in the hands, we could have called him 50/50...

You can't steal Rod Gardner's name. He earned that name with years of sucking.

Re: Carlos Rogers Drops His Heart in San Francisco

he was a good cover corner for sure .. would have been a pro-bowler but has hands like a freaking brick you ALL know that .. just when he sucks you back in with his good play he would drop a ball right in his hands that could have WON games ... how about Dallas Week 1 last year, didn't he have a ball right off his hands before the holding call to Orakpo to seal it ???? Deangelo Hall MAKES PLAYS that's why he is elite, he may miss tackles and blow plays but he MAKES up for it by taking INT's to the house on a weekly basis ... Hall had a better game in Chicago then Rogers had in his career ... good bye Los .. your frustration has finally left the building ... with all the pressure Orakpo and Kerrigan will be bringing, Hall/Wilson/Landry each will have over 4 picks

Re: Carlos Rogers Drops His Heart in San Francisco

The lack of desire for him to resign here had less to do with his playing abilities than it did his personality. His pipes spew venom, the team is being constructed with more and more young players who can very well do without that in their locker room.

Re: Carlos Rogers Drops His Heart in San Francisco

Los will magically find a way to start catching passes this year. Such is the luck of the Redskins. In the meantime Beck or Grossman should plan to throw a lot of balls his way when we play him on November 6th.
