agreed. He tied for best slot corner in NFL based on PFF cover snaps per reception.
Best in what ranking, specifically? I see that he is ranked 7th in QBR passes going his way while in the slot.
In any case, that's a very shady stat by itself. It doesn't account for anything after the snap... like whether Rogers even continues pursuit of the slot target he's lined up against (zone) or whether the result of the plays were influenced by other defenders or even drops.
shows that he's given up the 6th most in YAC... that can't be good.. but again, that stat alone is shady too.
Sadly, the only way to really garner an opinion of Rogers' performance in the slot is by watching the games and drawing opinions from that. No one wants to believe that he sucks in slot coverage.... but my memory from the games tells me he is unbalanced, slow-footed, and mostly chasing his assignment from 2 to 3 steps behind.
