Looks like Gabbert has some "maturity" issues.

My observation of Gabbert was, those in the media who didn't get Luck in 2011 draft was going out of their way to paint him into an adequate QB because they choose him over Cam. I also believe that they went out of their way to morph Blaine into the image of Cam, while Cam was painted into the image of a QB who needed a lot of work and immature, which was really Blaine.

The primary impression I remember having about Gabbert pre-draft was that he looked nervous and skittish about contact. Even when just doing drills, he could be rattled.

He seemed to have a pretty solid grasp on the mental aspects of the game, but the confidence thing was a definite red flag. I remember wondering "What's he gonna do when a 300 pound DE is bearing down on him?"

I always felt he was a kid who bit off more than he could chew because of his ego and nothing was ever his fault.. Cam was labeled as being immature based on much, much less but Blaine could say and do

Whatever he wanted and got away with it.

Always felt and stated on this site, that Blaine was getting a free ride because folks like Mayock wanted a Luck replacement. Other QBs like Cam, Jake, Dalton, Colin, and Tyrod had to prove themselves.
