Bland theft auto

"It is the biggest crock of garbage," said Vera. "This is not the first person I've had to represent who the rental-car companies have done this to."

Give Glenn nine points. More important: can this ex-Patriots trend continue? Who's next? Anyone seen Eugene Chung?

Rogers passes out
Meanwhile, another former Big Ten receiving star, onetime Michigan State hotshot and subsequent Detroit Lions flameout Charles Rogers, got arrested for the second time in a year, this time for passing out drunk in a Mexican restaurant.

Rogers pleaded guilty in September for driving while impaired and was ordered into a sobriety program (it apparently didn't take). Being publicly drunk violated that decision, hence the new arrest. He was sentenced last week to 93 days in jail. Give him eight points on our list, and Dr. Drew's phone number.
