Blount Needs to Calm Down Before Football Career Goes Completely Downhill

Special to Titans Gab from Josh Dhani:

Things were going all good and swell for running back LeGarrette Blount. He had a great season with the Oregon Ducks in the 2008-09 season, rushing for 1,002 yards along with 17 touchdowns. He also had a stellar 7.3 yards-per-carry average. However, Blount made a huge mistake that would he would probably regret for the rest of his life. Against the Boise State Broncos, Blount made a punch that made huge news all over the sports world.

From there, it seemed that his football career would be over. He would end the 2009-10 season with 22 carries for 82 yards and two touchdowns. The 6?2? muscular 240-pounder would enter the NFL Draft with interest. However, he went undrafted. This was most probably due to his character issues. Yet, a team came up and gave him a chance: The Tennessee Titans. They signed him to a contract and is battling at the third string spot for the team.

However, deja-vu happened to the tempered-back. After struggling through training camp, Blount expressed his feeling by punching another athlete again. But this time, it was his teammate. This was not good. Blount had anger in him and rage, and his temper rose up. He punched him. Luckily, the man that got punched had a helmet on. But it was not looking good for Blount. Not at all.

He could be cut and it gets worse. No team will have interest in him. If Blount wants to make something out of himself and not be failure in football-career standards, he needs to calm down and really think about the decisions he is making. First of all, punching a guy again after you nearly just made yourself look terrible by doing nearly the same thing about a year ago is a huge, yet dumb, move. Here is some advice: CALM THE HELL DOWN! I am just going to say what my father always tells me: Think about the consequences before you make your move. Obviously, Blount did not think about it. He just did it and did not realize that could affect everything.

Last time, Blount took it too far. Now he is taking it even farther.

LeGarrette Blount needs to calm down before his football career goes completely downhill.

    Good points… however, if Blount’s coaches act as enablers and gloss over his actions (see Fisher, Jeff), he will never feel an urgent need to change his ways.

  2. Cole says:

    I agree his actions in college were ridicilous, but come on how many fights break out in practices across the NFL? I mean VY got punched in the face during training camp to. Its not that big of a deal.

    At least LeGarrette Blount has some fight in him, which is more than one can say for most of the Oilers!
