Rogers Ailing; Charges against Bridges Dropped

A couple of brief updates: Zach Berman reports that Carlos Rogers was absent today because of illness. And the Associated Press is reporting that charges against Jeremy Bridges, filed in connection with an incident in December, have been dropped.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Charges against Washington Redskins offensive lineman Jeremy Bridges stemming from an incident at a North Carolina restaurant have been dropped. Mecklenburg County District Court spokesman Charles Keller said Monday that two counts of simple assault and one count of communicating threats were dismissed by the District Attorney.
No other information was immediately available. Bridges' attorney, Eben Rawls, did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment.
Bridges was a member of the Carolina Panthers when he was arrested on Dec. 7 in Charlotte. He was accused of spraying champagne on other customers and getting into a dispute with a restaurant employee a night earlier while he celebrated his anniversary with his wife.
It marked the second time in 16 months that Bridges was arrested on an assault charge. He was convicted of pointing a gun at a woman outside a strip club a day before the Panthers reported to training camp in 2007.
The team suspended Bridges for the first two regular-season games for that incident. He was later convicted, given a suspended 60-day jail sentence and ordered to perform community service.
Carolina, which deactivated Bridges from its game the night after his second arrest in December, released him in a salary-cap move in February. He signed with the Redskins last month.
Bridges twice had hearings in his latest case postponed when snowfall closed the court. The case was delayed again after Bridges changed attorneys before the charges were dropped.
That should prevent Bridges from facing penalties under the NFL's personal conduct policy.

Hopefully it was nothing that might inhibit Carlos' ability to make interceptions.

Wow...JLC is gone for 5 minutes and there's 5 new threads in one day. I like where this is going...

Posted by: brownwood26 | June 1, 2009 7:42 PM

And the reason for this is:
1) Jasno left, and he was worthless?
2) A bunch of pretenders are auditioning for his job?
3) The start of a new fiscal quarter and everyone has performance goals?
4) The first day of OTA's and there's actually something happening?

This is why the second anniversary is the "champagne anniversary." First is paper, and if you make it two years, well you're entitled to spray everyone with champagne. People in Carolina sound pretty uptight.

Not to worry: "Rogers Ailing" - it's what you tell management when you are out to have few with the fellas.

I'm sure he's learned his lesson: Never spray champagne unless you just won the Super Bowl.

I wish JLC well in his new job but thank god he is gone. As the Post continues to decline in quality (with a few exceptions) JLC was a shining example of everything a news reporter should not be. What a disgrace he was and yet SO arrogant. Couple that with his frequent factual errors and obvious personal grudges and you have a not so funny comedy that the Post seemed to embrace. Boswell and perhaps even Povich have a tear in the corner of their eyes. Time for Mr. Reid to get his chance.

"Rogers Ailing"???? It should read "Rogers Earling"...

"Too much" never comes before the word Patron in English. There are other things it doesn't come before: money, sex, and leisure time.

I really want to see the winner of this battle:

Heyer v. Bridges v. Williams

We bloggas were chanting, "Oher, Britton, Monroe,..." all winter, and now find ourselves invested in what might be a better situation as now, three vets stand as probable right tackle starters.

Will the 2009 line be?:

Samuels-- lt
Dockery--lg
Rabach--c
Thomas/Bridges?--rg
Heyer--rt


We will see.

Just looking at Campbell -- who has gotten so little love this offseason. Read the article by Alex Marvez who called Campbell the worst QB in the division.

Campbell's avg passer rating, broken out by the defenses he played against.

Vs defenses ranked 1st-2nd (Bal, Pitt)
54.8 (2 games)

Vs defenses ranked 3rd-8th (jints, phil, dal)
78.2 (6 games)

Vs defenses ranked 9th-32nd
99.6 (8 games)

So Campbell had a 78.2 passer rating in the NFC East. How did the other QBs fare vs the Skins in 2008?

romo vs Skins 81.7
mcnabb vs Skins 74.5
manning vs Skins 74.8

On average, the QB rating vs the Skins in the NFC East is 77, essentially identical to Campbell's 78 rating.

The NFC East defenses were rated 3rd, 4th, 5th and 8th (jints, Skins, iggles, dal).

All the naysayers who think this kid just can't cut it, from Danny Snyder on down, are missing it. When compared to the other QBs in the division, Jason Campbell is right there with them.

I wish JLC well
After he falls into the wishing well
We'll all be fishing then
We'll have a good time then

P.S. I'm just interpreting my fellow blooger's sediments. I, meself, have never harbored ill will towards JLC. Also, if you have pictures, HTML, or such as, b!tch set me up.

Did any of you clowns ever read the actual ARTICLES that Jasno wrote? Do you not understand the difference between reporting and a message board, blog, whatever the hell this is?

(Of course as I type this, I realize that the answer is, in fact, self evident, and wonder why I keep beating my head against this particular wall)

Carlos Rogers had a puffy knee when last the team was together and now he is ailing. Maybe it's nothing or maybe Mr. Rogers' knee isn't in the neighborhood of being 100%.

Hey John, I agree with you to a point, but Cindy has reminded us on numerous occasions that the same journalism standard held in writing articles are carried over to wapo staff blogs.
