Carlos Rogers is no loser

SANTA CLARA – Carlos Rogers spoke in the media tent after practice Sunday afternoon. One reporter asked Rogers if he draws motivation from the 49ers’ recent interest in cornerback Eric Wright and their signing of cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha earlier this offseason.

“No, I really don’t,” said Rogers, shrugging his shoulders. “I don’t want to sound conceited, but I don’t really pay attention. Anybody who they bring in can help the team, but I just worry about me, playing my position, learning the outside, learning the Nickel, continuing to try to get better and to try to make plays for this team.

“Like I always say, my play stands for itself. Until Coach Vic or Coach Harbaugh comes to me and tells me that my position is challenged, then that’s what it is. But other than that, I just put my head down and play every day and not worry about who they bring in.

“If that’s the case, I already lost.”

  1. I really think Cully could have challenged for that #1 spot this year.

    My prediction is that NA replaces Cully and possibly challenges for the # 1 by mid-season.

    1. Wrong. There weree a lot of factors in his slippage including but not limited to coaching decisions, line play and a few lopsided games that hit his stats…

      1. Rogers was good at Washington. He just got hurt and dropped INTs. Last year he had some missed but seriously he was pretty darn good considering our line play down the stretch. He is not a shut down corner but a very good above average corner. That is all we need from secondary if we get out front seven squares away with good rotation.
