    Ouch! Will the NFL's conduct policy count the first one against him when assessing the situation or just this one?

    No, Blackmon will just get a 4 game suspension for this one. So the Texans will likely not see him when they travel to Jacksonville in Week 2.

    too bad he won't be there to see Gabbert chunk balls into the turf and sack himself.

    C'mon, cut him some slack - he's just trying to live up to the legacy of other first round Jaguar WR's Reggie Williams and Matt Jones. And he's off to a nice start.

    I wonder how many times he was let go while still playing for OKST. 10 am would suggest that this isn't anywhere close to the first time it has happened.

    My thoughts exactly, and I don't drink! Poor boy has probably been drinking nonstop since draft day! :shots::drunk:

    In his 2010 arrest, Blackmon was arrested at 3:45 a.m. after officers used radar to determine he was driving 92 mph in a 60 mph zone along Interstate 35 in Carrollton. No BAC was reported. In Texas, I don't believe aggravated DUI is defined by a high BAC, only 3rd or more DUI. BTW, he was coming back from a Cowboys game.:wadepalm:

    I can't even find myself to laugh at this right now. It's pretty clear he has an issue with alcohol. Even as a Texans fan I want to see him get his life together because he seems to be a good kid making poor errors in judgement.

    More lawyering from Florio. [​IMG]

    Blackmon is going to need to give up drinking completely for a year or more. If he's unable to do that ... trouble.

    impromptu poll: who would field punts better - jacoby, or an inebriated blackmon?

    jag·uar (jgwär, jgy-är) n.

    A large wide receiver who is taken in the first round and ends up coking or drinking himself into oblivion. Hesitant to stay active in the NFL, jaguars are still remarkably selected every year by Jacksonville. Their numbers remain large due to inability of Jacksonville to understand their patterned behavior.
