Da'Rick Rogers - All Bark No Bite?

Recommended Posts

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.

    • This thread is mildly frightening
    • Correct. The coach has the same goal as the analyst, determining the likelihood that 4th down would be converted.  He "calculated" the likelihood of converting, by processing actually more facts than the amount of facts that can be loaded into a program.    What the analytics guys will tell you is that his intuitive method is fraught with wrong observations and bias, so we need to discard intuitive individual based conclusions and listen to them...the people who can process facts better....IOW, the experts.  LOL. ( See where this is heading on a grand scale..big brother?)   The human brain is a pattern recognition machine that processes useful facts and discards less useful facts in a TOTALLY objective way because it wants to make the right conclusion.  Objectivity is in its self interest because getting it right is better than getting it wrong, and its baked into our instincts (the only way it gets biased is through conditioning).  So the coach processes the more useful facts....IOW, what is happening in his game....and discards the less useful facts about what happened with two other teams in a game 3 weeks ago...and computes a "probability" based upon the more relevant and timely set of facts. (or observations)   Ultimately, the argument comes down to how people process information and what they feel comfortable using as a means to make decisions.  Some need to reduce every decisions into a spread sheet that can be explained.  Others use their pattern recognition and "intuition" and are comfortable with it.  Neither is better than the other, but it does get annoying when its presented as one being better than the other.
    • Did you question him going for the 2 point conversion so early in the game Sunday?
    • I think it was just written in a confusing way. They called out the 4th and 4 in parentheses as an aside...and then went back to talking about the 4th and 1.
    • Henry also faces a stacked box on 60% of his carries
