Jaguars' Blake Bortles Throws One TD, One INT Against Panthers

Jaguars' Blake Bortles Throws One TD, One INT Against Panthers”

Henne got the start over Bortles during the team's third preseason game and many assumed that the job would be his.

Henne started their third pre-season game, completing eight of 14 passes for 78 yards before handing over to Bortles. Bortles looked like he could become a great quarterback when he tallied 4,428 passing yards and 35 touchdowns in 2015, but he has only regressed since his excellent sophomore season. What happens after that is unclear, but losing your job to a journeyman is never a good thing.

Marrone will be continuing his evaluation in the Carolina game, as the team announced that Bortles and Henne would be "splitting repetitions relatively evenly" with the first-team offense. "So you have two options and I think you pick one and you go".

One would have to question why this is a team that hasn't yet signed Colin Kaepernick, but that would be a dumb question I guess because the answer is the same for all 32 National Football League teams, regardless of how desperate their situations at the position are. The starters will probably play into the 3rd quarter, or maybe a series into the 2nd half.

Now he's going to make his 46th consecutive start, and it will come against a Houston defense that has sacked him 24 times in six games - all Jaguars' losses.

But this is one of his final chances and Bortles is at the end of the line here with the Jaguars.

Bortles is set to make $19 million next season, and the Jaguars could be on the hook for that money if they keep him around and he gets injured.

Following yet another poor preseason performance by fourth-year quarterback Blake Bortles, the Jacksonville Jaguars have declared an open quarterback competition. He also threw an interception on a pass that was behind Allen Robinson and into double coverage.

"I show up tomorrow (Friday), tomorrow's off day so whenever the next day is I'll show up and when they tell me to go play, I'll go play for as long as they let me", Bortles said.

"I'm not going to sit here and BS anyone".

"Definitely for him, it's still proving that he's a franchise quarterback", Henne said.

"I kind of look at it the other way".

Marrone said he hadn't decide whether or not he would play Bortles in the preseason finale against the Atlanta Falcons.
