Thanks...for a "contract year" he's getting pwned quite a bit...I know, I know, our secondary was #2 in yards coming in BUT I find myself screaming at the huge cushions our smaller CB's are giving on 3rd and shorts (one lead to the 75-yard TD).
And how pathetic our CB's are at not getting their heads turned around in time (minus Brock, naturally)? Both Rogers and Brown can't time jump to save their lives...it's not that they are short/small but they can't seem to time jumps that makes it a real issue for us IMO. Brown, I don't think he even jumps anymore to be honest...think he just tries to stay within a couple yards in trail-mode and swipes at the ball blindly once the WR's body language demonstrates the ball is arriving.
RoGers made a nice play on a 3rd down stop though! Both Brown and Rogers play MUCH better down hill...rely very much on that front 7 providing consistent pressure. But if it's a 3rd and short, a jump ball or sideline or EZ corner route, f*ggetaboutit! I cringe...
