Da'rick Rogers...future #1 WR


Recommended Posts

Rogers is. . . I don't know about Whalen there is some sort of rule where you can get on PS for 3 seasons if the team has kept it's roster full.  I'm not exactly sure what that means but he might be PS eligible.  However I don't want him there.  Someone would claim him on waivers.

As I recall, no one claimed Whalen off waivers or free agency before. The guy is an undrafted undersized developmental project. Only reason we like to give him a chance is he played with Andrew Luck in college and he kind of knows our offense by now, so I'm not convinced a team would sign him.

It was for comparison purposes. Moncrief didn't do much either and is only those 3 that might have the possibility of getting cut. Fanatical? This coming from people calling Rogers a #1 lock after making 1 catch. Lay year doesn't count cause we don't have enough body of work to determine if that is his norm.

You question me calling you fanatical and then in the next breath you make up fictional people who are calling Rogers a "lock" to be a #1 WR because of "1 catch".

If you put your torch and pitchfork down for a minute you might see that most of us like both Whalen and Rogers and would like to see them both on the final roster. One thread that is voicing excitement for Rogers does not mean we all want to dispose of Whalen now.

PS: There's no chance Moncrief is cut.

This i know.  I question it because it was a comparitive post to put Rogers into some context.  Then the next part i knew i was broad stroking most people with it.  But if you have been around since rogers got here, which you have, you would know the amount of praise this kid has been getting is really ridiculous in my opinion.  Ever since he got here there have been people, not just excited about him, falling all over him without seeing him doing anything even before his first game.  What i have seen is that most people that praise Rogers, bash whalen and say he gets cut and can never make it on a NFL team.  That is again, the majority of what i have read this past year.  Maybe things have changed this year, idk.

Yeah people were quite crazy in the beginning (myself included, at times) because we were desperate for WR help at the time. We had just lost Reggie for the year and realized DHB had feet for hands. Now that we have a very solid group of WRs the crazyness over Rogers has died down a lot, but the potential is certainly still there and I think that's all this thread is getting at.

I think he would have dropped less balls if he actually had feet for hands

It was amazing to watch the different responses to this thread. "FUTURE" should have been typed in faux bold, with a drop shadow with special text effects. We went from G.Whalen being cut to D.Rogers being last on the depth chart?...(behind J.Lenz, E.Thomas, R.Lankford, and G.Monroe?...I'm sorry, what?, that's not what you meant?....yea, tell me about it)....He's being...here we go.....GROOMED for a bigger role. Hilton will always be Lucks favorite target, but not the offenses' most dependable receptionist...Love TY, but being 5`9 175 is painful when you're running a 5 yard slant in the middle where the sharks & head hunters are...

    • Carson Wentz was fate. The work Ballard did in 2016 on Wentz and Reich’s work with Wentz is crazy. Crazy to hear Ballard talk about him.
    • Enjoy. He talked to Keefer and Holder for 40 minutes.    
    • IMO, they kept Patmon on the 53 because he had the size and speed that would intrigue some teams that might be shopping, but also because we needed to keep another X since Pittman was a rook, and Pascal (who isn't really a true X) was going to play a decent amount from slot. This year it's probably the same situation, but now we have 2 choices for that second X.   I love Dulin, and have been a fan since signed. And I love the gunner aspects. Still just not sure that will be enough unless he can find a niche in the WR area. He's been bounced all around, but mostly he's running clear outs for other guys from the film I've watched. I hated when they had him running X routes at times. Given his size profile, I wish they'd just keep him at slot or Z and let him settle in a bit. IMO, he'd be best at slot. Just really depends on what their plans are for PC though I guess. Overall, I have not been a big fan of Reich and Groh's WR development. They try to put some round objects in square holes. I do like Harris as well, but his size profile limits him a bit. If he can hold up, would love to see him get a chance at slot if they move PC outside.   I think moving PC outside might ease the chance of injury. That's on top of the obvious need to find a replacement for TY.
    • He wasn’t that good the last two years, so it does seem like a bit of a stretch.  But desperate times and all.
