True everyone reacts different. But there isn't one person ever that has suffered violent weed withdrawals that heroin or crack can produce.
His problem isn't weed, it's booze, and he was likely self medicating. Alcohol is just as bad as anything else. If you've never dealt with someone who is a legit alcoholic and not just drinks too much, count your blessings.
The Jaguars say they "haven't heard much" from suspended WR Justin Blackmon, and "it doesn't sound like it's going in the right direction."
Several teammates and members of the organization have reached out to Blackmon, but he rarely replies to texts or calls. Blackmon's high school coaches have "lost contact" with him. Cecil Shorts and others who do have contact with him indicated Blackmon is "seeking professional help" for his substance abuse, and has checked into rehab. A college coach of Blackmon's says the receiver admitted that he's "getting help." Blackmon caught 29 balls for 415 yards and one score in four starts last season. The 24-year-old's talent has never been questioned.
I really hate the faith put in Ron Rivera. People think he changed his philosophy or something which frankly isn't true. Someone just showed him some relative value chart of going for it on 4th, or going for TDs deep in opposing territories, etc. These things aren't daring or innovative; they're logical.
And even if he's changed on 3-4 plays a game, he's still letting shula call the most horseshit offense in the NFL for the rest of them.
I hope they implode this year and they bring in Gus Malzahn.
