    Not for us, I'd rather face Michael Turner right now than Jaquizz Rodgers.

    The game ended after 12:00am EST. Considering it has to take him an hour to get showered and changed, get to his car, and get out of there, he got liquored up awfully fast. Is there a bar 2 minutes away he goes to? Sounds like he started drinking at the facility. Hip flask? Brown bag and a 40?

    Damned shame.

    I'd always thought of him as a decent guy...but I have no sympathy for drunk driving.

    Hopefully the league office works the normal way and they don't punish Turner until he's been in front of the judge and he is still the starting RB next weekend.

    Maybe he had some beers in the locker room? That was very common in MLB for a long while.

    He might have been schnockered before, during and definitely after the game.

    That's bad, I hate drunk drivers. Hopefully this distraction makes the falcons have a bad game.

    Very stupid move, no excuse for it either. Especially when you factor in that he is a millionaire and could easily afford a taxi, a personal driver, hell a damn limo if he wanted to. No sympathy for drunk drivers at all, you're risking your own life, and the lives of other people, get a ride home instead fool!

    I was about to say, if he was arrested for this just after the game...it taked a little while to get drunk, he either started drinking IMMEDIATLY after the game, or was hammered durring the game...lol

    I heard he is still playing in Sunday's game. I thought you had to sit out after a DUI and/or arrest?

    I don't think they get dinged until they are proven guilty. He has to plead first or go to court and get found guilty or no contest. The NFL or the team can act on "Conduct Unbecoming" before that but most teams wait until a sentence is passed. Standard first DUI has been one game suspension if i'm not mistaken (We could ask VJ), although I feel it ought to be as much or more then PEDs as a DUI can get a lot more people killed then PEDs.

    But he was a great locker room presence.
