Despite losing back-to-back contests and the offense seemingly stuck in the mud, the San Francisco 49ers aren’t resorting to the blame game in the locker room, according to cornerback Carlos Rogers.
“But I don’t think that’s going to happen in this locker room,” Rogers said, according to Matt Maiocco st CSN Bay Area. “We’re a tight family. We stick together. We don’t call people out. Whatever we do, we handle in-house.”
After winning five in a row, the 49ers lost in consecutive weeks to the Carolina Panthers and New Orleans Saints by a combined 4 points. The offense put up just 9 points against Carolina and sputtered with a mediocre 20 against the Saints.
“It’s frustrating for everybody, not just the defensive guys,” Rogers said. “But there will be some weeks when teams are going to score on us and offense going to be wondering why we ain’t getting three-and-outs and why we’re not shutting people down.
“They’ll get it together. They’re a good coaching staff, good players and we got more players coming back. We’ll find a way.”
San Francisco was limited to just 196 yards of total offense against New Orleans and a paltry 151 against Carolina, facts that might bring about bad blood on some teams, but Rogers maintains that San Francisco is not pointing fingers.
“As a human being, you’re still frustrated,” Rogers said. “I’m pretty sure those guys are frustrated, too. But once you’re playing you’re trying to make the best of a situation and find a way to make plays. Each and every week, we still put ourselves in position to win the game. We just don’t finish.
“You’re frustrated by the losses, period. We’re a team and we’re sticking together no matter what the situation might be. We’re trying to find a way to win.”
