Carlos Rogers grew tired of the constant comparisons in Washington. All the questions about how he stacked up as a cornerback against Shawn Springs or Fred Smoot or DeAngelo Hall.
Good thing new 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh refuses to compare anybody. He preaches that his players only need to be themselves in order to flourish in his system.
And it sure is a good fit for Rogers, who made three interceptions in a three-game stretch this season and will certainly be geared up for another big game when he returns to Washington to face his former Redskins on Sunday.
The 30-year-old Rogers spent his first six NFL seasons in the nation's capital and had 43 tackles and two interceptions last season - and several he knows that should have been.
