DRC’s fractured finger

Posted by Darren Urban on October 1, 2009 – 12:02 pm

Coach Ken Whisenhunt said after the final practice of the week today that cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie has a fracture in one of his fingers and it’s been immobilized, but Whisenhunt also said he doesn’t expect DRC to miss any games. “It was more a question of making sure he didn’t do something over the weekend to hurt it further,” Whisenhunt said.

    What is up with DRC this season? Last year he looked poised to become a Pro Bowler. Now, he’s getting burned every single game. Are defenses just throwing his way more often or what? I thought our DB situation was much improved going into this season, but it seems worse than ever! I don’t know what’s worse: DRC and McFadden, or Green and Hood!

    I think that he played so well at the end of last season that when came in this year they decided he needs no help from the safeties over the top this year. He is playing man up every play it seems. And I keep reading everyone hating on DRC’s play but has no one heard of the “sophomore slump”?? I mean look at Steve Slaton for example he had what over 1200 yards and 10 TDs. This year he hasn’t even seen the end zone. DRC is going through a learning curve and a lot of talented rookies struggle parts of there second year. DRC is way too talented, athletic, and fast for this to be a permanent problem. He is gonna get back on the upside of his playing. He needs the fans support and he’ll get in the swing of things. Im saying after this bye week he shuts down his side of the field against the Texans.

    Totally agree Zack, DRC has kinda been worrying me so far, but he DOES need our support and not have negative stuff on the Team’s site for him to possibly see if he is to get out of this “Sophmore Slump”. I see him and just about everyone else on the team getting back up to speed after this week personally. Was the perfect time for a Bye.

    Zack- I hate to be negative about this, but you have to admit DRC has looked HORRIBLE so far this season.It started in the preseason[remember when he got burnt for 3 touchdowns in the green bay game] and he’s played like crap ever since.Of course i’ve heard about the sopohomore slump,and hopefully thats all it is.But when it’s your supposed number one corner having the slump,that’s really BAD NEWS for a football team.He continually makes bad reads,is out of position, and relies on his raw athletic talent way too much.He could get away with that in college,at Division 1-A Tennesse State might i add,but not in the NFL.He needs to get in the film room and start studying if he wants to be a good corner.I know it sounds like i’m hating on him,but i’m just speaking the truth.I’m a die hard and believe me i want to see him play well just as much as everybody else.We need him to step up really bad right now.Andre Johnson has the ability to embarass him if he doesn’t pull his head out.

    Let’s get realistic here. DRC just got burned by a 2nd year, former division 3 receiver with 11 career receptions, and hasn’t done much of anything in the first three games. There’s no way in hell DRC will “shut down his side of the field” against the Texans.

    If DRC is going to break out of this “slump”, this isn’t likely going to be the team he does it against.

    If we’re going to beat the Texans, it’s going to be IN SPITE of DRC, not because of him. As luck would have it, their defense is probably worse than ours. Our best hope of winning this game is to hope our o-line learns how to play football again and our offense can stay on the same page for more than one quarter. This team could easily post 30 or more points on us, just like the Colts.

    There’s a difference between “negative” and realistic. I’ll be cheering for the guy just as much as anyone, but he needs a wakeup call.

    I would like to see the Cards give the new draft pick, Greg Toler, a chance.
