Dubsism

What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions

The Anger Management Classes Must Not Have Stuck

If you remember LeGarrette Blount, you remember the punch; the moment that gave Blount his 15 minutes of fame and made him a 2009 Dubsy award winner.

Let's be honest, I will find any reason to use this graphic.

It seems Blount just goes with what he knows. The undrafted, free-agent rookie running back capped off a feisty night practice for the Tennessee Titans with yet another punch.

“Blount had just returned to the Titans on Wednesday night after being excused since Sunday for personal reasons. He was carrying the ball in a drill near the goal line when his helmet came off, and he kept his feet moving toward the end zone.”

“The play ended with some pushing and shoving, then Blount threw a right into Eric Bakhtiari’s facemask. Blount quickly talked to coach Jeff Fisher before leaving the field.”

Of course, since the Titans are in need of a second back behind Chris Johnson since they shipped another troubled back in LenDale White down the road. This is why head coach Jeff Fisher downplayed the incident, but the telling comment came from Blount himself.

“That was my past. It just came up again. I got into one of those situations where the defense pushed me too far. With training camp and everything going the way it is and being as intense as it is and me being a rookie, it was just something I shouldn’t have done. But I did it.”

Let me tell you something as a guy who has undergone more than one exercise for personality modification. It is easy to say you’ve changed something when faced with everyday situations. But there is no better force to bring out the truth than stress. While I must give credit to Blount for taking responsibility, I also have to notice that he clearly hasn’t dealt with the issue that cost him being drafted.
