Combat DPS Help

I have a AiLVL 335 combat rogue that up until recently I have been pleased with. It seems every single class in the game is now out dpsing my rogue. Typically my dps on trash is 6-7k dps and my average dps on bosses is about 7-8k depending on how much avoiding/running around is involved.
My Rotation (trash): Open w/ Blade Flurry & Killing Spree then 3+ S&D and 5cp Evis.
My Rotation (boss): 3+ S&D, 5 Rupture, 5 Evis x2, repeat.
I use Instant poison in MH and Deadly in OH. I have a 2.7 speed MH weapon and 1.4 speed dagger OH.
Gear wise-- I have reforged mastery into Expertise and have gemmed for Agility. Previously, I had gemmed for Experitise to get capped but I didnt see any improvement by doing so. Therefore, I took the extra dps by adding agility.
According to EJ and others my rotation is solid. Some say to ditch rupture and evis spam w/ S&D but I seen a big loss by doing so especially on bosses where you are avoiding bombs/fire, etc.
So does anyone have some advice? Am I doing okay for my class & spec or am I missing some huge opportunity? Could it be that im just the squishy melee dps who has to run out of every boss aoe or is combat dead and assassination in?
You are missing enchants and gems, this will gimp your dps.
Socket the gems and get those items enchanted!
If you can't afford the best ones get the 2nd best till you can.
You do need to be capped in Expertise.
I know nothing about Worgs, so you need 23 or 26 depending on racial.
Some of your attacks are missing the boss because of his dodges.
Also, make sure you get behind the boss or mobs to attack so your attacks won't be parried.
Mining really gives nothing to rogues, if you have an alt that could mine that would be better
and pick up another profession.
Elitist Jerks has a really nice Combat Guide, spend some time reading that.
Good luck with your Rogue!

Can anyone else confirm what hampton1 says? That Assassination is twice as powerful?
combat is viable, but much behind assassination due to crap mastery and talent synergy, but is to say that assasination's dps goes up alot due to murderous intent.
So... I repecced Assassination and adjusted my gear according to EJ's specifications and my DPS has increased dramatically! 9-10k on trash 10-13k on bosses in heroic mode. The only thing I need is a slower main hand dagger (im using dual 1.4s daggers, lol). Once I gain that improvement my DPS should increase more.
In conclusion fellow combat rogues --- respec Assassination if you want to be viable DPS.
Thank you for those who helped.
