Aside from jordy Nelson. The dbs did pretty good.
The last pass to Cobb was a 38 yard throw when everyone was playing not to get beat deep and let them have underneath. That catch put him up over 100 yards
Not just this game (in which Cobb mostly got the better of him when matched up), I mean in other games where Rogers specifically is mostly trailing a slot WR after a completion. Don't get me wrong, those are tough matchups (Cobb, Welker, Amendola, etc.) so it's not like he has to be perfect. But you rarely see him making plays on the ball and usually is the guy giving up key first downs. Maybe it's just a function of the position, I don't know, but I tend to remember Culliver being much more effective in the slot than Rogers has been.
