#Jaguars HC Gus Bradley said Henne will start with Gabbert as the backup. Says team will start Henne and "see where it takes us."

Hurney, if there was one huge thing you ever did that was right in all your years here... it was passing on this dude despite what everyone said and picking Cam Newton instead.  Thank you soooo much for that.

I still think Gabbert could be an okay QB in the right system, but he needs something more WCO oriented and he's not capable of carrying the load for an offense.

When did it begin?

Agree he'd be better in a WCO, but his problems aren't necessarily scheme related. He's always been too skittish to play in the NFL. That was why I didn't want him here.

his college tapes all reminded me of clausen as a panther. i could never understand the appeal many had. tbh, i'm surprised he lasted this long....but it is jaxville.

Well any chance he may have had was automatically negated when he was drafted by the Jaguars, unfortunately for him.

 

I still can't believe some people wanted us to draft him.

 

Funny thing, if it were up to the huddle, we might not have Cam or Luke right now.

Even Hurney knew you can't ever take a guy named Blaine #1 overall.

Never understood the hype for him the first place.

I really don't know if anyone on this board actually wanted us to draft him seriously - I was his biggest pre-draft fan around here and I didn't want him at all here :P lol

I am still waiting for anyone on NFLN to mention this. I can bet you any amount of money if this had been Cam, half the show would be dedicated to discussing and disecting why the Panthers BENCHED Cam. :)

 

But all that was mentioned this morning was Henne will be under center despite Blaine being healthy.

I wish I could find that article that came out right after the draft about Blaine.

 

I said from day one that Jake, Cam, Mallette were downgraded in their QB skills so Blaine, the media chosen QB, could look good. They wanted the draft competition to be between Luck and Cam but they ended up with Blaine because Luck stayed in schoold. They weren't going to pick Cam as the media chosen for all the wrong reasons.

I remember reading the Jaguars boards back in 2011 before our game against them. They had nicknamed him Blaine Swaggert and were convinced he was going to be Joe Montana. I lol'd then and I lol even harder now. Blaine Gabbert was a creation of the media who didn't even deserve to go in the first 5 rounds of the draft.
