One Catch, but Rogers Grinning

For the first time in a long time, Joey Harrington didn't have to answer questions about the struggling Lions offense. Sunday, he completed 69% of his passes, and threw three TDs with no interceptions. Charles Rogers, on the other hand, is fresh off a four game suspension (and was inactive for another one), and had one catch for a whopping four yards yesterday. Given that he hasn't really done anything since being drafted, I'm not exactly sure why he was grinning after the game. Oh right, the $14 million signing bonus.

Plus the game check.

It may only be his rookie contract, but it sure beats no game check.

No, no, no. He's grinning because he's very, very high.

Is he grinning because Mr Ford just offered him a 5yr extension?

James, that's too painful to be funny. (sigh)

He wants to be like Hines Ward when he grows up?
