Jaguars QB Blake Bortles losing once firm grip on starting job

Jaguars QB Blake Bortles losing once firm grip on starting job”

If you had any doubts about the Jacksonville Jaguars' abysmal quarterback situation, last night's forgettable preseason performance against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers should have cleared things up. Henne, 32, is entering his sixth season with the Jaguars and hasn't made a start the last two seasons.

Marrone said the entire offense was at fault for underperforming, not just Bortles.

Fantasy football players aren't the only ones who dislike the idea of having Blake Bortles on their team.

Bortles completed 8 of 13 passes for 65 yards in four drives, all of which ended in a punt. In many ways, the break would be cleaner if the team minimized its risk and cut Bortles at the end of the preseason, taking the cap hit for next year and preparing to look in the draft for new blood next year. Henne finished 6-of-10 passing for 44 yards.

The Jaguars fell to Tampa Bay 12-8.

The disgruntled fan called into the Jaguars' flagship radio station at 1:48 a.m. Friday with a succinct bit of analysis. Still, nobody would have imagined Jaguars veteran Chad Henne would be competing to start in 2017, especially considering Bortles is only a little more than a year removed from a breakout season.

Winston played the entire first half and completed 21 of 29 passes for 196 yards and had a quarterback rating of 90.6. After months of waiting, we finally get to sit back, relax, and enjoy watching our beloved sport. "We've got to have touchdowns in the red zone".

The Bengals backup quarterback apparently has been on the trade market, but the Bengals want a second-round pick for him. Drafting one of the players in a quarterback-rich draft in 2018 isn't an option. "Elite quarterbacks don't make that play". After he missed a field goal and an extra point, the Bucs quickly pulled the plug on Aguayo, releasing him just one year after trading up to draft him in the second round.

The Buccaneers played without two starters: cornerback Brent Grimes (leg laceration) and linebacker Devante Bond (sprained knee). Yeldon left the game in the first quarter after suffering a left-hamstring strain and did not return. The Jaguars were without rookie running back Leonard Fournette (foot), receiver Marqise Lee (ankle) and their top three cornerbacks. Other starters who missed the game: Ramsey, Bouye and CB Aaron Colvin (still on the physically unable to perform list).
