There’s nothing like going to a Mexican restaurant after a long night. You know you’re going to get your eat on and pay for it the next day but you don’t care. That’s great but the best thing is that it doesn’t matter how drunk you are when you walk through the door. Someone will be drunker than you. If you’re in Novi, MI, you can bet the drunkest guy in the cantina will be ex-Detroit Lion Charles Rogers.
Rogers was arrested after getting drunk and passing out in a Mexican restaurant. Quentin Tarantino would categorize him as a Mexicant. The former wide receiver has been in a sobriety court program since pleading guilty to driving impaired in September.
There isn’t any video footage from the incident but we imagine it went down a little something like this:
Not really a ton of time to get the picks out this week with the holiday festivities, but i’d be remiss to give you my picks for the day. Full recap of last week’s action and the rest of the picks will be up Friday, but here’s todays picks.
GREEN BAY -11.5 at Detroit
Detroit is decimated by injuries on offense, Green Bay’s secondary is also beset by injuries, who will win? Well the Pack’s offense should have no problem with Detroit’s defense and the Lions offense should not be able to keep up. The Packers ruin the Lions Thanksgiving Day.
OAKLAND +13.5 at Dallas
Lets add this up, Tony Romo is hurting, Jason Witten is hurting, they havent played particularly well the last two games…I just dont see a dominating victory here by the Cowboys. Take the Raiders, they’re always good to screw up a large spread.
New York Giants at DENVER +6
Giants are recovering from their recent 4 game slide while the Broncos are still in the midst of theirs. The Denver D is who we thought they were and the rest of the league is exposing it, Mike Nolan isnt looking like much of a genius now. The Giants offense should have no issues here, but for some reason I am liking the Broncos to keep this one close. No blowouts here, in Orton we trust.
It ain’t hard to tell when when you get no respect. Most people respected Rodney Dangerfield especially for the triple lindy. The same isn’t the case when it comes to the Detroit Lions. You know times are ill when announcers shit all over a team without mercy during a game. First game of the season and Chris Myers is already comparing the Lions to Whoopi Goldberg? Damn, it’s gonna be a long season.
Rashaan Salaam’s name should become a verb the next time a professional athlete admits to smoking weed every day. “Player X rashaan salaamed himself out the league.” Former Lion Charles Rogers gets us one step closer to sweet verbdom with his admission that he smoked the tweed every day and was addicted to painkillers. He flamed out after his third season in the league. Here’s a clip from his ESPN interview with Jemele Hill that will air in its entirety on Outside The Lines August 16.
You have to love Matt Millen saying “something was clearly wrong”. Really? Could it have been that he drafted a known problem case or the fact that he is the worst GM in the history of sports? He makes Wes Unseld look like a Hall of Famer for his front office work with the Bullets/Wizards.
Matthew Stafford was on Letterman last night to deliver the nightly Top 10 list for the show. He was a little stiff and looked a bit hesitant with his delivery…this does not bode well for the Detroit Lions.
