I like Rogers. I think he is very confident back there. And he should be. He a proven vet who has had some success against the opponents fastest receivers. And he has gotten burned a few also during the past few years, but that never really bothered me because he always stepped up to make plays on the ball or sticking his nose in to make a decent hit or tackle.
Until about a month ago. I always try to stay level headed on our guys--never too high on em, never too low on them. That said, Rogers' game has declined in a drastic way recently. Over the past 3 games I'm looking at our defense wondering if Rogers is the liability on the field, and the answer is no doubt, YES.
He's not showing effort in tackling. He is slowing down big time in his speed. His change of direction quickness is decling. Ball skills, well you all know he never really had that. Hes looking bad.
I really wonder if we're going to miss him if he doesn't play. In some way, I think we may put a better all around D on the field without him
