Packers guard T.J. Lang has some simple and obvious — but apparently necessary — advice for his fellow NFL players: If you drive somewhere and drink while you’re out, leave your car behind and call a cab to get home.
Like many NFL fans, Lang is fed up with all the players getting arrested for driving under the influence — five such arrests for NFL players in July and four in June — and he went on Twitter and offered a simple piece of advice: Take a taxi.
“Dear co-workers,” Lang wrote. “These are pretty cheap.. Try one out.” That was followed by a picture of a cab.

Like Derrick Ward before him, Lang is right to lash out at NFL players who drive drunk. The players who drive drunk are a danger to society and an embarrassment to the league, and their fellow players shouldn’t stand by and say nothing while they make the NFL look bad.
