Kenny Britt needs a life coach, or at least for someone to take away his access to social media. His latest Instagram post talks about how he isn't allowed to have an opinion and that only God will judge him. Poor, poor Kenny.
I am by no means a life coach, but follow me through the jump for some advice I would give to Mr. Britt.Dear Kenny,
You have all of the potential in the world. If you will dedicate yourself to football, you be mentioned in the same conversation with guys like Calvin Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald. You really do have that much talent.
What you don't have, however, is the best decision making. Let's talk about your most recent outburst on the popular social networking site known as Instagram. There is nothing wrong with you having an opinion.
In fact, I am sure that literally hundreds of NFL football players have said the same thing to their fellow teammates, coaches and/or general managers. The difference between you and them is that they kept those feelings in house. That is part of being a pro.
You also should expect fans, who are already frustrated with you because they feel like you are wasting your talent, to get upset when you miss a rehab session and the whine about getting fined for it publicly. That is part of being an NFL player. That does suck for you, but all of those zeros in your bank account make it that way. Sorry.
It is not too late for you to turn it around, but it is getting there. That is a choice only you can make.
My advice would be to take a break from the social media sites (and make sure you deactivate your accounts so they don't get hacked again). Just play rehab and keep a low profile.
Your life coach,
