IS SACKSONVILLE OUT OF CONTROL?
Fowler got in a fight with a fellow teammate at practice (nothing unusual in training camp) and media members began filming it. Jalen Ramsey, team leader, took exception to this. From what we had reported to us @ 96.9 The Game, apparently, Jalen Ramsey was dropping f-bombs left and right, scolding the media for capturing the fight on video. His profane last rant continued on Twitter, quote from Ramsey "@phillip_heilman you know you done messed up right? Lol if y’all want war, we got sum for y’all. & I know the rest of y’all (you know who you are) gone read this too so just know #LameAssReporters"
In the aftermath of it all, how should this be perceived? There are 2 ways to look @ this.
1. The Jags are out of control: Players are fighting on the field, Jalen Ramsey is snapping at reporters, and taking to Twitter to ridicule those that cover the team every day. Ramsey is supposed to be the team leader, not some out of control lunatic who flies off the handle at the drop of a dime. Is this the culture the Jags have built in Jacksonville? How can a team replicate the success it had a year ago if it's own leaders are emotionally unstable?
2. This is all part of 'Jags Swag': If you want to build a tough, defensive-minded team, one that other teams fear...You're going to need some bad apples. That's always been the case in sports. The 2000 Ravens weren't exactly the pillars of morality, I wouldn't have invited the '85 Bears to my Thanksgiving dinner, and they weren't called the 'Good-Guy Pistons' in the 80's. You want toughness, and a little bit of psycho on the field, sometimes this is what you have to put up with.
So, which is it? Think about it, talk about it, and vote.
