Da'Rick Rogers - All Bark No Bite?

Could it be that we were too which to jump on the Da'Rick train? He came out barking old, but we haven't seen him bite yet. Hardly even a bark. Might he not be the next Calvin Johnson/Jerry Rice? Could we be stuck with just another Roddy White/Crabtree/A.J. Green clone?

AJ Green is a stud WR, Roddy WHite and Crabtree are good WR in their own right.  If Rogers is in that company he would still be a steal as an UDFA.

In his first career game he caught 6 passes for 107 yards and 2 tds...Getting tired of people jumping the gun. Let the guy play a full season before you start questioning his ability. Besides White, Crabtree, and Green are all darn good receivers, so I wouldn't consider that a bad thing.

Our fanbase has some crazy expectations. If we expect an UDFA who has played two career games to carry our WR corps, could you imagine the pressure we would place on a first round pick?

 

Lets give it time folks. He didn't even go through training camp with the Colts and spent the majority of his time here running the competitions plays.

Can you please change your avatar?? There is way too much Lowe showing.

he's played 2 career games....Sure we were kinda quick to jump on the train, but that doesn't mean he doesn't have the potential to be the next great one.

Give him a year if he stays with the colts which I think he will he gets a whole offseason with Luck then he could come out next year and be a really good player.

He could also be DHB in disguise. He dropped a whopper last Sunday. On the other hand........yep, give him some time for goodness sake.

 

Yep, he should get some time.  The drops are one thing, but if he has to learn how to sharpen his route running very soon.  IMO, he caused the INT.  No place or excuse for laziness.

I'd be happy if he turned into AJ Green or Crabtree or even Roddy White.  UDFA who we will have on the cheap for a while.  He's an exclusive rights free agent after 2014, all we have to do is offer him league minimum for a year and he has to accept.  Then he's an RFA, so we put a first round tender on him.  Although if some team is willing to make an offer we need to be prepared to match.

 

Can we please get this right? Cincy was not his first career game. It was the first game he had a catch. He was active in the Tennessee game, and drew a long P.I..

 

True, but Cincy was his first game getting significant snaps.

Now after taking time to read this again to make sure I read this OP correctly I have to say this.

I am PRAYING he is a Roddy White/Crabtree/A.J. Green clone.... lol

 

They said it before the Texans game they want to get Hilton more involved... so the focus was transferred to getting him the ball last game. If Reggie is healthy for the start of the season next year, I wouldnt mind seeing Rogers on the left, Hilton on the right and Wayne in the slot  :goodluck:

No ... I think he's better than guys like Green or R White. He's just working the rust off.

1. I think we'd all be pretty happy if he eventually landed in your second tier.

2. It's not often that a WR is worth his salt in year one, or even two. Crabtree & Reggie being prime examples.

3. Um, some of us have tempered our enthusiasm for instant success on Da'Rick, even if only to contrast those overly enthused with immediate success (you being a part of that group). We're labelled 'haters', and it appears you may be swaying towards caution. We were never 'haters', just cautious.

Why is Crabtree mentioned with AJ Green and Roddy White? They're much better than Crabtree and are very much elite WRs.  Don't look at White this year, he was banged up, but he's done great the past 5-6 years.  If Rogers ends up like Roddy White I'd be very happy with that.

 

Can we not send this kid to the morgue, so quickly, like a lot of you guys did with T Rich?  Let's give them an off season, gees.

    • And so what? Is he hurt even more now or did he get through the game?   There's other parts of this equation that Bowen's article and this consensus that's emerging are missing in my opinion. Say the Colts sit Wentz, but it's known he could have played and wanted to (to what degree of effectiveness, for the purpose of the hypothetical, we wouldn't know, because he's sitting- did this need laid out? lol). So Hundley goes out there, sucks (safe bet to be real honest, but there's some disagreement, fine) and the Colts lose the game. What do you think people are saying right now? Easy. "Why didn't they play the guy who can at least throw the ball", or "these backups suck" and so on and so forth.   I get some of the argument but ultimately Wentz was deemed to give the team the best shot to win by the people who are supposed to know. 
    • Grigson inherited 43 zone defensive players and quickly built a 34 man defense that was decently playoff caliber (IIRC, BALT beat us that wildcard game by Flacco chucking a couple of long bombs where the defender was in position to make the play but didn't (not wide open)).   Grigson used what cap space there was right up to the limit to get a competitive defense right away instead of building through the draft, which takes time.   Ballard also got a decent defense by signing FA vet players.  And, like Grigson, once those players rolled off, the drafted players don't seem to be able to carry the torch.   BTW, TJ Green plays a decent amount of snaps at cornerback for the Falcons and grades out pretty well.  A tall, zone corner.
    • Does your post mean that your with me on most too??    
    • Wentz Update- Still stinks.
    • This isn't Madden.  These GM's are real people with long term friendships and associations with each other.  If Ballard were to try to game the compensation of a trade he already made, it would damage the Colt's reputation among the league.  That would be worse than the loss of the 1st round draft pick.  The Colt's and Ballard are men of their word, they will honor the trade they made for Carson Wentz.  We can criticize it after the fact, it's what we do.
