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.

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.

    • We are screwed. Doesn’t matter at this point. I do think Sendejo has played ok. I don’t get wrapped up in FS or SS. A year or so ago I remember a colts media guy saying with the what the colts do they don’t really look at it as two different positions. They want safeties that can kind of do anything. 
    • Been rocking my Faulk jersey since JT came on board. It was way in the back of the jersey rotation and closet.   Still got my white Edge Puma made jersey somewhere. I always liked that one for some reason.
    • First, pay is mostly irrelevant.   And he’s NOT getting paid like a dominant LT.   If he plays the whole year, I think he makes about $7 mill.   That’s a long way from dominant money.   Castonzo was making about $16 mill.   That’s dominant money.  Coming off a terrible injury Fisher wasn’t going to get dominant money from anyone, especially the Colts.     And he’s struggling because he came back fast to help the team.   There’s no reason to think he won’t get better as the season goes on.   We just have to hope he gets better sooner. 
    • Id like to be clear about a few things.   I’ve never once stated that I think we will win a Super Bowl with Reich.   Not once.   But I think he’s a playoff level HC for now.   He’s only in his 4th year as a HC.  So I expect him to get better.      Think of Andy Reid.   He didn’t win a Super Bowl until roughly his 15th season, maybe more.   People used to call Reid one of the best HC’s to NEVER win a SB.   I’m sure there were plenty of Eagles and Chiefs fans who thought Reid would never win a SB.   But he did.   How about Pete Carroll?   Flamed out in three seasons with the Pats.  Flamed out after one year with the Jets.    Didn’t have a winning season until Y3 in Seattle.   Coaches CAN get better.    I hope Reich gets better.   He does plenty to make me scratch my head.   I’m not blind to his short comings.   I just think it’s silly to think he’s not good or isn’t going to get better.   Will he become good enough to win a SB?   I don’t know?   But I think it’s obvious he’s a playoff level coach.   And for right now, I think that’s good enough, at least for me….   Your mileage may vary….   Sorry this went long….
