Go to NFL.com right now and scroll down once and Justin Blackmon's mugshot is on the right and looks totally out of place with everything else. How humiliating and embarrassing is that. Totally deserves it too.

What would you call getting into a car and driving with a BAC of .24? Poor judgment! A lot of people would say he was being stupid or being a moron. I would say those people are right too! Either way you slice it, he's allowing alcohol to take over his life.

On the Jags boards there are people saying he was sloppy drunk in Jax bar on Friday night after they finished OTAs. Then apparently went on a drunken binge the next night that continued into Sunday morning. On top of that, he was actually supposed to be in Houston for an appearance on Saturday but told the promoter he was "sick". So it could have been in Houston that he could've gotten that DUI if he had chosen to attend the event. I would say that's a dude that has a serious problem. Whatever you want to call it..... Disease? Poor Judgement? Being a Moron? Stupid? He needs to get a hold of it quick.

Honestly, I'm halfway impressed he could pull himself together enough to get in a car, have keys, use them to start a vehicle, etc....halfway disgusted.

.24?

If that was me, I'd be asleep. Middle of anywhere style.

You might call it "tradition."

Quote:
Blackmon is Jacksonville’s fourth first-round draft pick since 2000 to face problems after being selected. The team has tried for nearly a decade to find a suitable replacement for its best receiving tandem ever, Jimmy Smith and Keenan McCardell.

Former Arkansas quarterback-turned-wide receiver Matt Jones, selected in 2005, was charged with cocaine possession in July 2008 and ordered into a drug treatment program. He was suspended for three games in late 2008 for violations of the NFL’s drug policy and cut in the spring of 2009.

The team’s 2004 first-round pick, Washington wide receiver Reggie Williams, wasn’t re-signed after being charged with drug possession in Houston in 2009.

And wide receiver R. Jay Soward of Southern Cal, taken in the first round in 2000, seldom played due to drug and alcohol problems that led to numerous suspensions.

BTW, Blackmon pleaded "NOT GUILTY" this afternoon in court.

Pretty sure it won't cost him any money at all... Rookie contracts are slotted nowadays... Good luck with that Jags. Sorry Mootini!!

LOL Oh, I raise the white flag>>>I'm so sick of this! Blackmon is supposed to be back here in Jax today...wonder how Khan/Front office is going deal with him? Blackmon also has a Jaguar Caravan appearence on Friday in St. Mary, GA...wonder how that's going to go?

If you can function enough to even be in a car not passed out with a. 24 blood alcohol level, it sends up a red flag to me about your drinking habits. Somebody has built up a serious tolerance for alcohol. We are talking pro level drinking. He needs help.

I know he is slotted $, but may have some new clauses, that protect the Jags from guarantee payment, if he ends up in jail/suspension/another DUI? Jag fans are not happy right now, sorta a blackeye for the offseason. Apparently, news is coming out on the OTA's the coaches were getting upset at Blackmon, not grasping the plays/routes...like he wasn't studying the play books....sounds like he was out pounding drinks in Jax! Also people saw him stumbling around Jax too. I'm beyond upset...I'm to the point, I don't care to see him in the line up...I don't care if he's an amazing WR...the bad PR to the Jags and butt of jokes, piss me off more than anything.

Blowing at .24 makes it even more alarming for me. I hope for his sake he gets the help he needs.
WHAT?? You think the league should step up, do the RIGHT thing, and SAVE this kid from himself, BUT, football should not be important at all?? Please tell me WHY the league should even get involved? This dude obviously had problems LONG before he entered the NFL. Since you've dealt with alcoholism yourself, you should know that the treatment starts with SELF! The NFL can't "save" this kid from himself, he's the only one who can do that. Maybe being in the NFL is a detriment to this dude! Lots of money, fame, free time to do what he pleases. The fact that he pleaded NOT GUILTY says a lot, IMHO! He's not ready to admit he has a problem, and NOONE, not even the powerful NFL, can help him until he's ready to help himself. JMO!!
