Redskins fans: Thoughts on Carlos Rogers

Aug 1, 2011 at 9:15 AM--


After losing out on all but one starting calibre cornerback in free agency, the San Francisco 49ers are left with Carlos Rogers, formerly of the Redskins.

Rich Tandler's Read Redskins blog had this to say about the cornerback back in April.

Other than anyone playing the quarterback position, no Redskins player generates as much polarizing discussion as cornerback Carlos Rogers. Some--I would say most--are so anxious to get the free agent to be out of town that they would help him pack his house and drive the moving van to his new home. Others are concerned about another hole being blown in the defense if Rogers departs.

Back in April, Rich Tandler and Ryan O'Halloran debated the question of whether or not to retain Rogers.

Rich Tandler: I'm not one of those who gets on Carlos about his hands of stone. I've always said that you drop a potential interception, you were in the right place at the right time. Rogers is not a shutdown corner but he's a very good one. Still, he's going to be 30 before the season starts and a team that is looking to rebuild and get younger should think long and hard before signing a cornerback who is that age to what will be a pricey deal.

Maybe 49ers Fans Don't Deserve Garoppolo

Face it, most of you don't deserve QB Jimmy Garoppolo. Yes, you, the ones who spend your entire weekend pining over other QBs and lamenting the one the 49ers currently have as QB1. The spoiled, ungrateful brats of the 49ers fanbase who cannot find it in them to show any appreciation for the man they call Jimmy G. Fans like these make a situation insufferable for a player dedicating his life and body to the team. As Garoppolo spends his weeks working his way back from another high-ankle sprain, many 49ers fans are fantasizing about how to replace him. This isn't a foreign concept for the 49ers. No QB is ever good enough for this fanbase. Steve Young can attest to this from his experience in the early 90s. He was never going to be Joe, and that was a big problem for a good
