Da'Rick Rogers vs Chiefs


Recommended Posts

am i the only one who notice after that one drop he wasn't target as much for the rest of the game?..what did he have like four more targets after that???....and one of them was an under thrown interception that would have been a td...i hope they get him involved more this game.......5 catches, 90 yards, td...

I just hope he can consistently get separation so that Andrew can target him as needed. Even though Andrew obviously isn't afraid of being hit, I think we would see a much more accurate qb if he could quickly find any receiver with separation. It isn't happening nearly enough and even a gutsy qb is going to have problems when he needs to get rid of the ball in three seconds and he doesn't have a Reggie who can make himself quickly available. All those hits take their toll.

I don't think it was the drop as much as the way he was tipping off his routes.  He was more to blame for the INT than Luck.

he was underthrown, they played a smart defensive play and made him look open, and luck didnt see it grant he could of thrown it futher and he could of still got to it but he wsnt underthrown

Found a nice little piece of info from Ben Gundy over at Colts Authority. Ben Gundy is the guy who tracks the o-line.

 

Finally, while I don’t track wide receiver blocking closely, I want to say that Rogers is showing lots of promise as a blocker. Though he needs lots of work on his route-running, the fact that he’s showing effort in blocking is a good sign, particularly since Darrius Heyward-Bey seems to be getting worse and worse in that area.

I won't guess anything about his numbers but I can say that he definetly needs to learn how to run better routes.

Kyle Rodriguez of Colts Authority and BR put side by side the Whalen's route for TD and Rogers' when Luck threw the interception and the discrepancy between the two was striking. Whalen's route running was so fluid while Rogers looked like he was taking a turn on ice and was trying to avoid sliping.

He linked to the 2 gifs from his Twitter account so you may want to check his Twitter timeline. He may have posted that in his BR article this week, not sure.

OK, see if this works
