When the Redskins drafted Carlos Rogers out of Auburn in 2005, they were hoping they'd found their next athletic, shutdown corner to help bolster a team that would have to continue on without all-pro Champ Bailey.
For six years, Rogers labored mightily to excel in the Redskins secondary. While he was never lacking in tackles, Rogers got beat far too often and had, arguably, the worst hands in the NFL.
Since heading to San Francisco, Rogers has become a pro-bowler and, in one season out in the Bay area, matched his interception total from the four previous years.
Redskins nation is still asking the question: Where the @#%#%^ was that when you were in DC, Chuck?
Should the Redskins be happy for Carlos Rogers? Sure. But rest assured, they wish he had been playing at that level during the six years he was in Washington.
If you're looking for one, all-encompassing reason as to why the Redskins are looking to beat the 49ers in 2013, look no further than Carlos Rogers.
