Not only is he weak in coverage, but how many times do we have to see that little sh!t go for a kill shot only to have the guy with the ball run right through it??? WRAP UP!!!!
Carlos had one good year and we paid him way too much for it. He went from all pro level in 2011, to bad in 2012, to absolutely atrocious this year. Looking strictly at numbers according to Pro Football Focus, Rogers is ranked 148 out of 199 corners with a negative 3 grade for the season. Quarterbacks have thrown at Rogers' receiver 93 times and completed 57 of those passes for 684 yards, at a rate of nearly 12 yards per completion. Rogers saving grace last year was his tackling, but this year 300 of the 684 yards have been after the catch. Not only is Rogers not keeping the ball out of his receivers hands but when they do make the catch he is letting them run wild. If these numbers weren't bad enough, over the past 4 games he has actually been worse, quarterbacks have completed over 70% of their passes in Rogers direction with a passer rating of 117.8.
On top of that, he's our 2nd highest cap hit at 7.3M and would be #1 at 8.1M next year. I cant wait to cut his @ss and for Dan Snyder to give him 4@60 next year.
Now that would be funny.
"But he's solid"
The problem with that stat is you are grouping him with ALL corners, including the ones who only logged a handful of snaps. Many of those players had a higher grade simply because they were not on the field enough to make any kind of impact. I'm not going to compare a positive-graded player who only played 200 snaps to Carlos who played over 1000 snaps. That's flawed. Many of those players can only handle being on the field in specific situations and do well in that role. If they were on the field every down, they'd be burnt toast.
Carlos played more than 75% of the snaps, so you need to compare him with other players who played a similar amount. He is ranked 30th out of 40 in that instance. Not great, but not awful when you consider there are 64 starting corners in the league. If Carlos is ranked 30th, middle of the pack, I'll take that. If you go by QB rating when throwing in his direction, Carlos is ranked 12th out of 40 among players who were on the field at least 75% of the time.
