Crunching Numbers On DeAngelo Hall And Carlos Rogers

They say the numbers don't lie. For the Redskins starting cornerbacks, the truth really hurts.

According to Joseph White, DeAngelo Hall has given up 35 catches on the season. That's the most surrendered by any CB this season. While Hall possesses the title of the most burned defensive back in the league, let's not forget that he is also the self-declared leader of a Redskins defense ranked dead last in the NFL.

And what about his embattled counterpart, Carlos Rogers?

Rogers' suffers from "Stone Hands Syndrome" and since the start of 2009, he has dropped 10 potential interceptions including six so far this season. He botched a chance at a pair of pickles last week against Peyton Manning and the Colts. On the other side of the coin, Hall was instrumental in a Redskins victory over Dallas in week one, returning a fumble for a touchdown.

Needless to say, watching the Redskins corners week after week is a roller coaster ride. While Hall is more of a playmaker, he tends to be streaky in coverage while Rogers is a reliable cover man. Maybe the two could combine forces and become a single shutdown corner; Hall offering his big play skills to the equation and Rogers contributing his abilities in coverage
