Originally written October 09, 2012 on Giants Football Today:
San Francisco 49ers cornerback Carlos Rogers is ready to make a big play on Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz this Sunday and do his famed salsa dance.
“I like the dance, actually,” Rogers said, per the Sacramento Bee. “I really can’t do it as good as him but. But if I make a play or get an interception on him in my mind, just do his dance.”
Cruz wrote about Rogers disrespecting him during their regular season meeting last year in his new book.
“Then with his teammates cheering him on, he did a sarcastic salsa dance over me,” Cruz wrote. “The Candlestick Park crowd went ballistic, but I wasn’t laughing. It was a sign of disrespect. Instead of getting up and retaliating, though, I sat and watched Rogers finish his cheap Victor Cruz imitation. I promised to never forget it. I wasn’t sure when the opportunity would present itself but I was confident I’d get payback for that dance.”

Cruz went off on Rogers during the NFC title game by hauling in eight receptions for 125 yards in the first half.

With Hakeem Nicks possibly out this week, the 49ers may have the luxury to roll coverage to Cruz’s side of the field, which would give Rogers some much-needed help.

Maybe before the game Cruz can show Rogers his Super Bowl ring, since the 49ers were so close last season.
