Jacksonville Jaguars: One More Season of Blaine Gabbert Will Be Pure Torture

Phil Sears-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars have endured the miserable misfortune that has been the quarterback play of Blaine Gabbert for two years too long.

The two year veteran quarterback has been given one last shot by management to impress before they move in another direction. Unfortunately for the fans, this means yet a third season in a row of the same old junk.

Gabbert has a career quarterback rating of 70.2 in two seasons. He’s turned the ball over five more times than he has scored it. His career yards per pass comes in at a measly 5.61.

What in the world about his first two seasons would make you think, ‘Yeah, he’s worth another shot?’

Jacksonville is digging themselves even further into the ground by allowing Gabbert to play another year. He hasn’t shown any reason why we should believe in him as a starting quarterback in the league. Even Chad Henne has outperformed Gabbert in his recent starts, and that’s saying quite a bit.

With such a fantastic running back in Maurice Jones-Drew and a young, but promising wide receiving corps, wouldn’t you think a halfway decent quarterback would be a priority in Jacksonville?

Nope. Not at all.

The Jaguars are just going to be more of the same in 2013 with Gabbert under center. He can’t do anything well at the position — nothing. He’s average at best across the board.

If I’m a Jaguars fan I am already looking forward to the 2014 season when they finally get themselves a new starting quarterback. They aren’t going anywhere this year.
