I don’t usually listen to 1010XL in the mid day due to the poor quality. However, today when I got in my car at 1:00 they were discussing Justin Blackmon. I decided to listen to hear what people are saying. Today people are coming out saying that they have seen Backmon out a Jax beach drinking heavily. I don’t usually think much of this because a large portion of Jags fans couldn't pick Blackmon out of a lineup. I then heard 1010XLs Ryan Green (Ryan The Hacker) say that he has seen Blackmon at the local bars at the beaches drinking also.
Does Blackmon having a drinking problem or is it just poor judgment? If Blackmon wants to go out and get hammered, I’m okay with that. I’m not okay with him doing it and then driving. I’m not on the side that says Blackmon has a drinking problem. I remember when I was in college and a few years after college when I would party like a rockstar. I just think he is a bone head. I spoke with a friend that works for JSO and said a .24 blood alcohol level isn’t uncommon.
What is next for Blackmon? I am hearing people say the NFL may suspend him for 4 games. I’m not sure the NFL PA will allow this since it is Blackmon’s first violation since being drafted. I don’t think they NFL can punish him for something that happened 2 years ago. He will have to face the wrath of the court. Blackmon could be looking at jail time and community service. Regardless it is bad for the Jaguars. Time that he would have spent looking a film and reviewing his playbook may be replaced with time washing police cars.
