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.

At first I was like this.

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.

    • Classic Ballard pick - great measurables, raw, little to no college production. He hasn’t had a lot of luck with that approach so far when it comes to Dline, so I’m extremely skeptical.    He’s coming off a pretty severe injury and if Fisher is anything to go by I don’t think we should expect anything from him this year.    I hope he surprises because we really need that elite sack/pressure from our Dline. 
    • @Lawrence Owen just saw you bring this topic up on TV?
    • Glow is at the end of his contract.  He's a free agent next year.  He's pushing 30.  And Ballard has to decide if he's gonna pay his ENTIRE offensive line the extra money or not.  If Reed plays better than Glow, at a lower cost, then that may be the way they go.
    • I think rotate is coaching code word for if Glow doesn't play better Reed will get his job.   One huge thing that everyone talks about when it comes to Oline thats not a stat is synergy between the 5. The more all 5 start together, the more synergy they have together, the better the line plays.   I think its every teams goal to have as much consistency at Oline as possible. So to me rotating makes no sense.
    • I feel bad for him and had very high hopes for Blackmon, but think he is an average to below average safety when healthy Getting him back next year, isnt a solution that will bring much difference to one the worst pass defenses in football   We arent getting much PR, but at least a percentage of the extremely poor pass defense is the safety play   We need a playmaking safety, to go with the need of an additional pass rusher (even if its a 3rd down guy that can rotate in)   I hope we invest in the off season (again) for these two critical spots, until we find the right guys     The good news.... sarcasm alert.....  we cant be the 38th ranked pass defense
