Shaun Rogers likes this winning thing
 
Before joining the New Orleans Saints this season, the veteran defensive tackle had never played on an NFL team that had won more than seven games in a season. So you can forgive the big guy for being a little giddy about the Saints' 8-3 start.

Not only has Rogers never played in a playoff game. He has never played in a game with playoff implications. The closest he came was his penultimate season in Detroit, when the Lions started 6-2 then lost six consecutive games to fall from contention.

Yet Roger has started only four games and recorded just 21 tackles. His playing time has been limited largely because the Saints have committed to a three-tackle rotation with Sedrick Ellis and Aubrayo Franklin. But he's not complaining. He's fresh and healthy because of the limited reps and is thoroughly enjoying the regular five-day workweeks, which result from the "Victory Mondays" Coach Sean Payton grants the team after wins.

Well, step it up even more. This isn't the Cleveland Browns. Go get it if you want it.

Hope his new found enthusiasm brings more production, he's been a slight disappointment. Maybe my expectations might have been a little too high?

He's a former Lion. Let's hope he starts and steps it up Sunday Night.

I hear ya on this. I would like to see some sacks. I am glad he is happy and all but sacks would make me happy.

I think that he's 32 and for lineman it's pushing the envelop to expect great games especially with no preseason camp. He's probably just getting into playing shape. With this deep rotation we could keep everybody contributing and hopefully start getting more sacks than our safety.

think of how much he would be enjoying it if he was actually contributing:
2 tackles in 3 weeks

He'll be fresh for the playoffs.

He should have a great game, he's playing the LIONS Sunday night.
