So was Alex. I liked Alex, and I still do, but hen the staff felt that another player making far less money gave the team a better chance to in, they made a change.

Bwahahahaha...total pet peeve of mine.
Aaron Rodgers just doesn't have the physical make-up to play the slot CB position anymore (speed, strength, quickness)...do you really want him covering guys such as Austin, Harvin and Cruz? He's a decent outside LCB esp. when he has help over the top and breaks off routes. He plays best when he's burned and in the spot light. Nnamdi wants to rejuvenate his career and is hungry. So I fully expect a dog fight this off season now that Carlos is being pushed. He's right, there WILL be some competition. And don't forget about Culliver as well.
He'll probably start but be taken out often

Agreed, but he'd make for a hell of a backup QB.

Well until the staff says so, Rogers is still the starter.

I love when someone starts a thread to analyze a player and can't even spell their name.

True that, at least get the name right.
Q: What do "Carlos Rodgers" and yo momma have in common?
A: They don't really need a D in them, but everyone shoves one in anyway.

CB is the hardest position to play on defense. Rogers is above average at it. I don't get all the hate.

It's probably a few possibilities...

1. Rogers makes a lot of money, and most fans likely don't. Unless the player is a superstar, they loathe the money the player gets and it makes them angry that they don't make anywhere close to it.
2. Rogers really was NOT above average while playing NCB. It was ugly.
3. It's a forum.. and in a forum, there will always be exaggerated dislike of players OR at least, other people misinterpreting "hate" for simple disappointment.

I doubt anyone really wants to take a knife to Rogers.. but they probably feel he "slacked off" last year... and fans don't like slackers on their team.
