I feel bad for the people of Jacksonville. Their best player Maurice Jones-Drew hates it there, wants more money, and oh by the way, appears toast. Their best player, stud WR Justin Blackmon, has dealt with legal and suspension issues, BEFORE the Jags suspended him for the season for more substance abuse issues. And probably worst of all… Blaine Gabbert is in a platoon at their starting QB.
But things are bound to turn around (and that’s mostly because they can’t get worse). MJD will come back (OK, maybe as a coach) and the Gabbert/Blackmon/Cecil Shorts trio has some promise. Well, at least Blaine Gabbert’s girlfriend Bekah Mills thinks so.
Both Gabbert and Mills went to Missouri and played sports. Gabbert took over the starting QB as a sophomore and went pro after his junior year. Mills on the other hand had her basketball career cut short by injury. She was highly recruited out of high school and became the starting PG for the women’s basketball team. But after her 3rd (or possibly 4th) torn ACL, she called it quits.
With basketball no longer taking up time in her schedule, Mills was able to focus on her degree in accounting. She graduated in May 2012 and is currently studying to become a CPA. Apparently she has a lot of promise in this field as well, already landing a job at KPMG, one of the Big 4 auditing firms in America.
