ESPN QB Confidence Index: Jaguars rank in bottom 10

WELP. How confident do you think the Jacksonville Jaguars are in Blake Bortles and their quarterback position group? ESPN’s Dan Graziano sees your lukewarm response and raises you with “they’re a bottom 10 situation in the league”. That’s according to his 2018 QB Confidence Index — a ranking not of which quarterbacks are better, but rather how confident he thinks the team is in its quarterbacks. And he doesn’t think the team is confident in Bortles and the others at all. 24. Jacksonville Jaguars The Jags gave Blake Bortles an extension early in the offseason, indicating...

Expectations for Bortles in 2018?

While we all have certain expectations for the Jacksonville Jaguars 2018 NFL Draft class, there’s also expectations for their returning veterans and starters. We’ll start that conversation with the one who will likely generate the most conversation, quarterback Blake Bortles. Bortles had what I would classify as a “It was fine” season in 2018. He had his typical peaks and valleys with a really hot three-game stretch and a solid playoff run. The most important thing during the playoffs was that he didn’t turn the ball over and made plays when the team needed him to for the most...

QB Blake Bortles, Jaguars teammates thwart suspected thief

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles was picked without being on the field.

Jaguars sign Tanner Lee to rookie contract

The Jacksonville Jaguars have officially signed sixth round rookie quarterback Tanner Lee from Nebraska to his rookie contract.

Our friends at Corn Nation brought a little knowledge to the table regarding the third quarterback on the depth chart. Lee looks the part. He is big, strong, and good in the classroom or at the podium. By all accounts, he is a high-quality human...

Which of your friends is dumb enough to try and steal Bortles’ truck?

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles turned into a crime stopper Wednesday night when he and two of his offensive linemen — Chris Reed and Brandon Linder — stopped a man from stealing the quarterback’s wallet and truck, according to TMZ. The police report was kind of crazy, according to SB Nation NFL: The report says surveillance video shows Bortles’ wallet being intercepted by the thief who rummaged through the quarterback’s unlocked truck at a house party at Linder’s home. The keys to the truck were also there for the taking, but the uninvited party guest was boxed...

2018 Jacksonville Jaguars starters: Predicting all 22 players

2018 Jacksonville Jaguars starters: Predicting all 22 players

The Jacksonville Jaguars won’t have a lot of new faces when it comes to their starting offense and defense. In fact, besides a receiver, tight end, left guard, and slot cornerback, all the starters are returning. That’s... impressive. This is a roster that was within one bad quarter of its first Super Bowl appearance and NFL.com’s Gregg Rosenthal is predicting who will be the starting 22 on both sides of the ball come the regular season opener — barring injury of course.

According to Football Outsiders, the biggest remaining hole on the Jaguars roster is at the tight end position.

Jacksonville Jaguars: Can Blake Bortles finally exhale and lead?

Blake Bortles has gained the confidence of the Jacksonville Jaguars. Now is the time for him to become the leader.

2019 NFL mock draft: Jaguars pick QB Jarrett Stidham

The Jacksonville Jaguars have a loaded roster — the offensive line is a top-five unit, the secondary might be best in the league, the defensive line is stacked, and... Well, the quarterback could be better. Blake Bortles is an inconsistent passer and as he goes, this team goes. Does this team have the roster in place to make a Super Bowl run this year? Absolutely. Can Blake mess that up with continued up-and-down play that has plagued his first four years in the league? Again, absolutely. And that’s what Vegas thinks the Jaguars will do this year.

ESPN team writers think the Jaguars will go 13-3

The Jacksonville Jaguars will the No. 1 seed in the AFC. You may have seen ESPN’s Mike DiRocco with his way-too-early 2018 season predictions for the Jacksonville Jaguars where he predicted each of the 16 regular season games and came away with a 11-5 record next year. Fair. I think that’s a good expectation to have for a team one bad half of football away from the Super Bowl. The end result may look something like 10-6, but it’s not crazy to think this team gets 11 wins with an improved offensive line and better play from Blake Bortles. But what if you looked at the opposing ESPN...
