Not much we can do about Rogers being accurate on the run. But we should have pass rushers who are athletic enough to get him once in a while or at least make it a difficult pass. The guys chasing him were so far away that I don't believe they affected the throw much if at all.
Barwin alone barely missed 2 sacks; with another QB not among the top in escapability, it would have been a different story.
We have to compare them to a certain standard; and that was the one from last year.
