Dear Carlos Rogers,
First off, I want to thank you for the four plays that you've made since being a Redskins. Considering you've started about 4 and a half, we'll just say "thanks" for your one a year average. I also want to thank you Carlos for dropping more balls than a one armed juggling clown. But with all fairness to you, most clowns have more experience. Sure, I know that you were part of a system that was more "conservative" than Glenn Beck. I didn't like seeing you lined up 8 yards off the ball on 3rd and 2. And because of that, I'm not totally blaming you. But in your neighborhood Mr. Rogers, Quarterbacks rape and pillage with no fear of you. We tendered you and word got around that you were upset. I really don't understand that Mr. Rogers. Most of the time, you're running beside WR's like you're trying to get their autograph. I'd rather put you in the ring as the next Roberto Duran, Mr. Rogers, because you sir, have "Hands of Stone". No mas...
In case you forgot Mr. Rogers, you play defense. That means when the ball's in the air, you should, A.) knock it down so the other guy can't catch it, B.) CATCH the GODDAMN BALL!!!, *ahem* sorry for yelling, but catching the ball is a good thing, in case no one told you...or C.) smack the guy so hard that he hesitates to catch it the next time. Let's be honest with ourselves Carlito, you didn't do much of any of those options. Please, don't be upset when I tell you this, but I called you "Toast" this season, because you stayed getting burned. Man coverage. Zone coverage. You name it. Now, I understand that that's probably the hardest position to play on the field. To which, I'm not saying that you are the worse in the league. But you're far from the best Mr. Rogers, and for you to get your panties in a bunch over your tender, makes me "Laugh Out Loud" for real.
We've got Phillip Buchanan now, Toast. He's no Bailey or Reeves, but he's played on Special Teams which means his hands are probably better than yours. Sure, if we wanted to have a guy to run with receivers to keep them entertained, we wouldn't have made this move. But you either need, A.) a swift kick in the ass, B.) some competition to push you harder, C.) a swift kick in the ass AND some competition to push you harder, or D.) to put up or shut up. It's one thing to voice yourself when you've shown the improvement and are still open to learn like a Rocky McIntosh. His anger at LB, is understandable. But you, Mr. Rogers, have every QB singing your theme song...
At Corner, you either pick or get picked on. You, Toast, get picked on so much it's unsanitary. So step it up Mr. Rogers, or step out. But please do so quietly. It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood, ;-).
