Some of what you describe might be out of your control - toons running Heroics today (at the end of WotLK) are totally overgeared, so if you're a new rogue without comparable gear jumping into heroics alongside kingslayers and whatnot, you might very well see the tank out-DPSing you. And with today's heavily-AoE playstyle, single-target rogues can be at a disadvantage on the trash packs, especially when you're assisting the tank and he changes targets often. Getting into position behind the boss while stealthed can be a bit slow, especially if the tank isn't the considerate kind :) who will grab the boss and run through it so that he tanks facing the group, meaning the back of the boss faces you and you have less distance to run. But you learn to anticipate this and keep up with your tank. After all, you're stealthed, and if you don't do anything stupid you can (usually) lead the tank by a few paces. Make him your focus, pick up his target and you can see where he's going next.Shadowpanther.net might help you if you want to see some gear charts and see where you stand or see where to queue up next to take a shot at getting the gear you need. I hate to see people stop playing rogues because what the world needs now is ganks sweet ganks. Good luck.
