LeGarrette Blount ejected with Lions losing in fourth quarter

The Lions are playing an ugly game for the second week in a row, and they’re not happy about it.

Lions running back LeGarrette Blount took his unhappiness out on 49ers linebacker Elijah Lee in the fourth quarter of today’s game: After Lee put a legal, clean hit on Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford near the sideline, Blount walked up to Lee and shoved him hard, knocking him down.

The officials correctly ejected Blount from the game. And, despite FOX announcer Thom Brennaman oddly claiming that Lee’s hit was late, the officials also correctly did not flag Lee, who delivered his hit on Stafford while Stafford was still inbounds.

The Lions trail 30-20 in the fourth quarter.

  1. He is old and slow should not have been signed, taking snaps from Johnson does not help the Lions try to establish a run game..

  2. Low character legarrette blount should never be forgiven
    for his sucker punch of that Boise State player post-game
    after Boise DESTROYED blount/oregon.

    Another New England class act. I hope they make a Matt Patricia clown shirt. I will be the first one to buy it.

    I understand your frustration…..the Pats ended your team’s 1-year dynasty and they probably won’t even win a game this season

  4. Blount represents Blount, NOT NE or any other team.
    Blount is the worst type of player, starting with his sucker punch of the BSU player.
    Blount is a PUNK!

  5. When a player is ejected in the fourth quarter (as Blount was) or in overtime, he should be suspended for the 1st quarter of the next game if the offense that led to the ejection doesn’t result in a suspension.

    About as frustrating as the final score of the last Superbowl? Oh, that’s right….

  7. Any chance the Lions cut him and he suits up against them for New England next week? That would be fun.

  8. Sucker punching the Boise State player???

    How has that video existed on the internet as long as it has and you haven’t even seen it? You must have a pretty odd definition of “sucker” punch to think that.

    Is every punch outside a boxing ring a “sucker” punch? Come on, you can even see the Boise player’s goofy face bracing for it as he sees it coming.

  9. That Boise State player deserved it. Run your mouth, expect consequences. I fell in love with Blount at that very moment.

  10. Thom Brennaman says many odd things during every games he calls. Somebody has to be the worst commentator on TV…. and it’s him!

  11. Bush league act, then when he was throwing his tantrum talking to Patricia , that showed this guy is classless –
    Liked the signing until today, he’s a hard runner, but he has screws loose.

  12. while Blount was unquestionably wrong, we all know had that been Rogers or Brees or Brady, the tackler would’ve been ejected instantly and the TWO personal foul penalties surely would’ve been called offsetting each other;

  13. Does anyone have any doubt that the Pats are going to wax the Lions next week? The boo-birds at Ford Field will be very loud. This has potential to become a toxic environment spiraling out of control. 0-16 isn’t out of the question.

  14. Well, after Blount stepped up for his QB, the Lions went on a roll. It woke up the team.

    In hockey, guys start a fight to get their team going. I’m sure this wasn’t what Blount intended to do, but it worked.
