Anybody want to give Charles Rogers a lift?

He's gonna need one in about 3 months, given his latest tale of unfulfilled NFL-caliber talent. This poor fool. Caught drinking at a Mexican restaurant in suburban Detroit, Rogers passed out and had to be hauled out by 911 emergency response. The use of alcohol of course was a violation of his probation and the substance abuse program he was in. So its off to the slammer for a few months now, with a suspended driving license to boot.

Oh ye of the porcelin collarbone, how far you hath fallen. Once the #2 overall pick in the 2003 NFL Draft, now back to being Oakland County jail inmate (he did some time earlier for drunk driving in '08). This dude had so much talent coming out of Michigan State, and I remember being so excited about getting him to be Joey's #1. Things looked real good early in his career too. He even caught 2 TDs in his first NFL game. Then the collarbone broke (twice), and things were never the same.

All I can say is, kids - drink your milk.
