Carlos Rogers ready to return against Cowboys

By Jason Reid

His hamstrings no longer sore, cornerback Carlos Rogers plans to return to the lineup Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys at Cowboys Stadium.

"I'll be ready to go," Rogers said Thursday. "They're [his hamstrings] a hundred percent. If they was anything less than that, I wouldn't go out there.

"You still never know what's gonna happen. Like the last [time he played]. They both was a hundred percent, then the other one pulled. You still never know, but I'm going out there full speed."

Rogers has missed three of the last four games because of hamstring injuries to both legs. After missing the Week 11 victory over Tennessee because of one sore hamstring, Rogers returned to the lineup in the Week 12 loss to Minnesota.

He pulled his other hamstring in the first half against the Vikings and sat out after halftime. Rogers missed the next two games, losses to the New York Giants and Tampa Bay, while rehabbing.

Although Rogers has sat out practice this week for precautionary reasons, "I've been running," he said. "With me running, even with running on the treadmill, I still can put it to the highest I can go. If I can keep going, what I normally did before I was hurt, I know it's fine.

"I've been running before, rehabbing, [and] they [team trainers] still took me outside and ran, even though I didn't practice. Yesterday, it was out on the turf, but it was still full-go out there. Still did some routes. Still had to cover, so I didn't have no problems."

CR22's hamstrings were so tight they kept yanking his arms back down when he jumped, thereby preventing him from gathering up INTs....

But now he's stretched, rested, and ready! Carlos "Pick-6" Rogers is back!

Rodgers needs a tape with a few interceptions if he's going to do well in free agency this year.

Rogers needs to complete another rehab- hand and eye coordination. Or just lather up in stickum.

Last offseason, when people were talking about using the #4 pick on a QB, Malcolm Kelly said, "That's all out the water now."

I wonder if he still feels that way?

"They're [his hamstrings] a hundred percent. If they was anything less than that, I wouldn't go out there.

Yeah, no NFL player should ever be expected to play at less than 100% during week 15. I'm sure all of his teammates are.

I think he's a good player we should try to keep, but when he opens his yap, it leaves little mystery as to how he could've made 14 million since getting drafted yet still be in debtor's court with his house foreclosed on.

I really don't get all the criticism, especially in the media, about the Redskins again not being in the playoff hunt this time of year. I just heard it again on Comcast.

Where was it ever deemed that the Redskins would be a playoff team this year?

Before the season, I would have thought the Redskins would be lucky if they finished 8 and 8.

The Redskins just changed the coaching staff and have new offensive and defensive systems from the previous year, plus have just started overhauling the personnel. There is always going be period of adjustment when this happens. Even if the team was good to begin with. The Redskins were 4 and 12 last year.

If the Redskins were still having years like this two or three years from now under Shanahan, then you might have reason to complain.

But for right now just relax.

This place is amazing..

The 4th most valuable franchise in all of sports doesn't have a indoor practice facility (laughable) and people complain about that being being a priority. Yes they should have one and practicing in the elements doesn't help when you can't go full speed for three games when the forecast for Sunday is 60 degrees.

We cut the 31st ranked punter that will be 34 next year to see if we can find a younger more consistent punter and people complain.

And now the hacks (and yes you are all hacks) dust off their CR22 jokes. It's just not funny.

Step up your game.

Under Zorn there was not an almost complete overhaul of the coaching staff from the previous year and the defensive system was almost the same.

Our media needs to chill out. A team is simply not going to make as many changes from one year to the next and likely be a good team especially when you are 4-12 the year before. There is almost always a period adjustment and Skins have plenty of things still to work on with the roster.

I'll wait before passing judgement on Shanny's work in D.C..

The upcoming offseason should feature another round of roster turnover, veteren addition, and perhaps a coach or two being axed.

But I sense there is a new core of redskin players around which next year's team is going to be shaped.

That's why I'm willing to wait things out.

I am starting to like what I see and have read about this guy. One publication mentioned that they don"t think he'll convert well to a 3-4 OLB, but some said the same about Rak. Kerrigan has a motor on him that's for sure.

I also think Cameron Jordon would be there in that range. He's already proven to be a very good 3-4 DE albeit at the college level.

Kerrigan was a unanimous All-American choice this year and leads the nation with 26 TFL and has 12.5 sacks to go along with 12 from last year. He also owns the Big Ten and NCAA record of 14 FF for his career. He is lauded for his work ethic. At 6'4 and 263LBS he's also an academic All-American.

I'd also settle for Stephen Paea the DT/3-4 DE from Oregon State.

At this point, it seems you and I are pretty much agreeing that the Skins should find a player for the defense if they must pick top 10ish. If they trade back to late teens, I think that's where the Oline comes in play.

Great call. If we can't trade back then have to pick top 10 I say DE or AJ green if he falls to us. Id like to trade into the low 20s n grab the best o line man. Then again the next best lineman, offense or defense.

brandon_in_cali love Green, bit the Skins have too many needs on the Oline IMO to use their top 10 pick on him. Let some other team trade up for him, then grab a WR like (Criner, Cunningham or Fuller if they come out) late second early third.

A. Stud d lineman to line up next to brian

B. Pass rushing OLB to line up opposite of him

C. Fill in one of the 3 studs were looking for on O line

I say C. I would love two top lineman. If we can get 2 of the best OG/C we could use the help n youth

If we don't get vjax, which I'm all for whatever he asks, I think a 2nd round wr could be Jon Baldwin. He's 6 5 n supposedly he can go up for the ball

Remember someone settled on a contract so a team out there thinks he was worth it. I personally think that team was us.

brandon_in_cal I'm not a fan of Baldwin. He just doesn't show up as a big time player at times. I like Hankerson (sp) from the U better. IMO in the 2nd round I'd like to see the team keep building the defense or work on getting an Oline player, unless they acquire another pick in the second or a third round pick by trading back in the first.

problem with VJax is that him + McNabb would eat up an awful lot of cap space -- if there is a cap. Those 2 guys alone could take up nearly 20% of the cap.

I agree. I say o line / dline. Or some combo of the two, in either order for our top two picks. If we got a third or 4th i d say the same for those rounds too.

Our trenches have been stomped n we need youth power n speed

Where are you getting these numbers? Nobody has any idea what VJ's asking price is, and regardless of his performance against a vastly inferior Niners squad, he still hasn't proven he's worth Brandon Marshall money.

I think some up here have a bad taste in their mouths over free agency in general and think he embodies some of the failures of years gone by. I get that...I really do. But we have a GAPING hole at WR and if he can fill it (at the right price, of course) then we definitely have to at least look into it.

Gotta say, dude did look awful good last nigh...

Redskins notes and analysis

By: John Keim


1. Offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said Donovan McNabb would start at quarterback against Dallas on Sunday. This really isn’t a shocker, but with reports circulating that they were considering Rex Grossman for a start, it puts this to rest. For this week.

2. One thing about Shanahan: he’s very effusive about his offensive players at times. In the spring, he tried to sell us on a line that included Stephon Heyer starting at left tackle. Said they didn’t need any upgrades – and this was before the draft. Point is, it seems that Shanahan is quick to praise a lot of players; heck, he even tried to sell us on the notion that Joey Galloway was helping the team when it appeared he was doing anything but.

3. When it comes to McNabb, he rarely offers anything other than temperate praise. As for McNabb’s play in recent weeks, Shanahan said, “It’s been up and down. It was good last week. I thought he finished with a real good drive. It was one of his best drives of the year. He did some good things last week. But he and I would like to get him and the rest of the offense playing more consistently.”

4. And as for what McNabb did well on that last drive? Shanahan said, “We threw the ball every play and he throws it. So he did a good job.”

5. Defensive ends Kedric Golston (groin) and Phillip Daniels (abdomen) were limited Thursday and defensive coordinator Jim Haslett called them game-time decisions. Cornerback Carlos Rogers (hamstring) was limited, but the Redskins remain optimistic that he’ll play Sunday.

6. It was quite a sight seeing players pile into their cars to drive to a local indoor facility to practice today. Just not what you’d expect to see. The Redskins did not use busses because it would have pushed their practice time back at least 90 minutes. Still, an odd sight.

7. It also hammered home the need for an indoor facility. They were forced to practice on the turf field Wednesday because the grass fields were frozen (and the turf field hasn’t been replaced in eons).

8. That’s why Shanahan said afterward that building an indoor facility was “a priority.” “We’ve talked about that in detail before,” Shanahan said. “You want the preparation you need to get ready for a game.”

9. The Redskins are one of 10 teams who don’t have some sort of indoor facility. Cincinnati is the northernmost team without one; Washington is right behind.

10. Defensive boss Jim Haslett said: “These guys are resilient. Over time you will play in these elements. The only bad thing this week is we don’t; we’ll play in ideal conditions. This is just something you have to fight through.”

11. Chris Wilson liked it; then again, he’s from Flint, Mich. “Driving in the snow is rejuvenating. It helps the mind relax; it’s Christmas time.” But Wilson said players who hail from the south were the ones asking to be driven to the facility.

“Perry Riley never practiced in [snow],” Wilson said. “He wanted to go throw snow ball. I hate guys like that.”
What about Maake Kemoeatu, who is from Hawaii – and also a large man.
“I wouldn’t let him drive,” Wilson said. “But he probably wouldn’t slide that far. He’d get weighted down.”

12. Because I forgot: the Redskins might use Jeremy Jarmon a little more, starting Sunday. With Daniels and Golston ailing, they need another D-lineman ready, but it also would be good to see him play more. Jarmon has only been active in three games. Leg strength was clearly an issue earlier this year; and that was a knock on him coming out of college a year ago. Thanks to his knee surgery last year, it could be that Jarmon won't have the sort of leg strength they desire until next summer -- after a full season of working out and not rehabbing.

13. The Redskins signed defensive lineman Jeremy Clark, who has spent time on the active rosters with Dallas (cut on Dec. 12) and the New York Giants (four games last season). He was an undrafted free agent in 2007 who also has spent time oni practice squads with the Giants, Eagles and Falcons. Don't look for much from him this season; Haslett said this is really just taking a look at him for next season.

Drop 22 in the HOUSE!

This should be his last year here!
Maybe if he goes somewhere else he will finally catch the interception.

Total BUST!

Has Rogers been gone? Did he get a hand transplant? Obviously, he wasn't taking an English class.

This team seams to have a lot of hammy injuries throughout the year. Are the strength and conditioning coach and trainer accountable for these?

Sweet!

Along with all of my other Redskins frustrations I can once again yell,"Com'on Carlos, catch the freakin ball!"

"They both was a hundred percent, then the other one pulled."

Black kids read/hear this lingo and turn around and speak it as if it's normal. Why does the WaPo do a disservice to the community at large and print this garbage?

Relax? We've sucked for 10 years! besides when Gibbs built a playoff roster.

Posted by: pabrian2003

____________________________________________

Finally, someone who acknowledges the heroic work of one, Joe Gibbs, who not only turned a 5-11 Steve Spurrier team into a relative playoff juggernaut in two out of three years of coaching (not counting his initial 6-10 campaign), but did some of the best coaching of his career (both Gibbs I and Gibbs II) in 2005 and 2007.

Not enough credit has been given to the old football coach. Too bad he's almost 70 and cannot return to coaching again. His (Gibbs II) performance has exceeded the likes of Norv Turner, Marty Schottenheimer, Steve Spurrier and now Mike Shanahan...not too bad a list of winning coaches.
