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.

 

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.

lol i remember someone talking about how he even cursed *gasp* in the huddle at their fan fest thing before the regular season and how that somehow meant he was going to be some fiery leader in the huddle or something.

bad organizations like this always seem to go back to a guy though after that guy is deemed dead.

Some of you might remember my rants about how Gabbert would be a bust. Glad we stayed clear.

Those in the media wanted you to believe that he was NFL ready and they also wanted you guys to draft him over Cam.

 

 Also, the Jags are only a bad team because they don't have a good QB.
