Ignoring the alliteration of the title of this article, we were approached this week, as sometimes happens, by Bloguin's own Bills blogger, "Joe," for a Q&A. So, we exchanged some questions, and the following is his answers. You can find my answers to his thought provoking questions here. Enjoy.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have likely moved on from the Blaine Gabbert era, but now a Freudian slip seems to be rubbing salt in the wound.
I found the above picture on the Jaguars' official Facebook page. Take a look at the bottom, right corner of the image. Apparently, Josh Scobee has abruptly abandoned his #10 jersey in favor of Blaine Gabbert's #11 jersey. Ouch. Just ouch.
Update, 3:37 PM: Whew crisis averted.
No one wants to admit when he's wrong, but that's something many Jaguars fans are coping with following Jacksonville's home victory over the Tennessee Titans.
The Jaguars looked solid on offense. Even though they only mounted four scoring drives, three of those drives resulted in touchdowns, not field goals, and the Jaguars offense continued to show the quick-strike capability that was on display just a week ago.
And that's the problem.no comments
Chad Henne gets his first start as a Jaguars player today against the Tennessee Titans. As always, thoughts and comments about the game below.no comments
With Blaine Gabbert now on IR, ending his season, the focus of the Jaguars and its fans now shifts to Chad Henne.
Henne provided the best offensive production we've seen from a Jaguars quarterback since the David Garrard era, and he did it against one of the NFL's best defensive units. It's safe to say that the Texans didn't expect the Jaguars to go vertical on them, but most of the credit has to be given to Henne, the Jaguars' offensive line, and the Jaguars' receivers, who had their best game as a unit in a very long time.
With the announcement that Henne would be the Jaguars' starting quarterback this weekend, a new sense of optimism hit me, and likely many other Jaguars fans. As I look at the Jacksonville's remaining schedule, that sense of optimism grows even more.no comments
Naming Chad Henne the starting quarterback over Blaine Gabbert based on performance is a huge mistake.
Sure Henne played superb against the Houston Texans Sunday and had the Jacksonville Jaguars in position to win, but that was due to an injury -- not because he outperformed Gabbert.
Henne came in and gave the offense a spark, no doubt about it. Would Gabbert have thrown for 350 yards and four touchdowns against the Texans? Not likely – but that doesn’t mean Henne should be named the starter.
I have a couple reasons why Head Coach Mike Mularkey made a bad decision.no comments
