Maurice Jones-Drew: Colin Kaepernick is better than Blake Bortles or Chad Henne

Former Jacksonville Jaguars running back has a great solution to the quarterback meltdown we’re experiencing here: Colin Kaepernick. We don’t need to trade for him, he fits the offensive system, and he’s a better quarterback than anyone on the roster right now. Just listen to what he had to say recently on NFL Network: listen 2 @MJD JesusChrist I don't understand @jaguars @realTomCoughIin please just give us a chance we suffered enough please I'm begging pic.twitter.com/rzuGQWvqZY— Chef Ramel BCBNYC (@Ra_The_Chef1125) September 19, 2017 Here’s the full quote: “You have to...

Blake Bortles (wrist) practicing in full for Jaguars

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles was a full participant in practice and should be all systems go for his Week 1 matchup against the Houston Texans. What It Means: Bortles is entering the season on a sour note, having lost his starting job for a brief moment in mid-August. But, although he's on a short list, he should be able to keep Chad Henne from stepping in behind center anytime soon. In season-long fantasy, Bortles is QB18 according to our projections. For Week 1, though, his 225.7 yards, 1.11 touchdowns and 14.6 FanDuel points position him just 22nd among...

Quarterback position not the full extent of offensive concerns for Jacksonville Jaguars

While the ineptitude at the quarterback position for the Jacksonville Jaguars currently occupies the headlines, struggles on the offensive line have also become worrisome. The conversation surrounding the Jacksonville Jaguars as the regular season approaches centers around the quarterback position. An “open competition” was placed upon Blake Bortles and Chad Henne through the preseason for the […] Quarterback position not the full extent of offensive concerns for Jacksonville Jaguars - Black and Teal - Black and Teal - A Jacksonville Jaguars Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

Chad Henne loses quarterback competition in Jacksonville

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne will serve as the team's backup quarterback heading into Week 1 of the regular season. What It Means: After a surprising but even more brief quarterback battle in Jacksonville, Blake Bortles has been named the team's Week 1 starter by head coach Doug Marrone. Henne -- after a poor showing in Thursday's start -- will return to the second quarterback spot as the Jaguars look for Bortles to produce like the promising quarterback they drafted him to be. After the Saturday morning announcement, we now project Henne for just 279.8 yards,...

Jaguars name Blake Bortles their Week 1 starter

Jacksonville Jaguars coach Doug Marrone has named Blake Bortles the team's starting quarterback for Week 1 versus the Houston Texans. What It Means: After Marrone said that he wouldn't name a starting quarterback following the team's third preseason game, Jacksonville's head coach has done just that two days later. Bortles was recently demoted for the Jaguars' Thursday night matchup with the Carolina Panthers, but he is back in the top spot after a poor showing from Chad Henne (8-of-14 for 73 yards). Bortles completed 12-of-16 attempts for 125 yards, 1 touchdown and 1 pick...

HALLELUJAH! Jaguars name Blake Bortles the starting quarterback

I was starting to get a little bit worried. Blake Bortles went full Blake Bortles in preseason week 2 and Jaguars coach Doug Marrone opened the quarterback competition. Would they really not run Blake Bortles out there and kill their chances of having a good season?? Well never fear, this morning it has been announced that Bortles will in fact be the starter in week 1 of the 2017 season! If we are being honest, the Jaguars have a pretty good team. The one thing that is holding them back from being really good is Bortles. Now, it’s not that I fear Chad Henne, but I do feel like he has a...

Jaguars won't name starting quarterback, Colin Kaepernick a possibility

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone wouldn't name a starting quarterback following Thursday night's third preseason game against the Carolina Panthers. What It Means: Albeit against the Panthers' backups, Blake Bortles looked like a new man on Thursday while leading the Jaguars to two touchdown drives. Meanwhile, Chad Henne was rather unspectacular, leaving this competition wide-open. NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal believes Henne will ultimately be the starter in Week 1 against the Houston Texans. Further muddling the situation, Jaguars owner Shahid Khan told Jaguars Today host...

Jaguars owner ‘absolutely’ OK with signing Colin Kaepernick if front office recommends it

I doubt it happens, but it would certainly be something if Colin Kaepernick was facing the 49ers in Week 16. The Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback situation remains a mess. Blake Bortles struggled through the first three weeks of training camp, and was replaced in the starting lineup this week by Chad Henne. On Thursday evening against the Carolina Panthers, Henne was 8 of 14 for 73 yards. Bortles came on in relief and completed 12 of 16 passes for 125 yards with one touchdown and one interception. The team does not seem to have a clear answer, and no matter how much they invest in free...

Blake Bortles turns in a solid preseason outing for the Jaguars

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles went 12-of-16 for 125 yards, 1 touchdown and 1 interception in the Jags' third preseason game on Thursday. What It Means: Bortles started the second half of this one and led two touchdown drives. The starting quarterback job is still very much up in the air in Jacksonville. numberFire's models account for both Bortles and Chad Henne seeing significant playing time this season, projecting Bortles to go 172.9-for-300.1 for 1,880.9 yards, 12.9 touchdowns and 8.2 interceptions.

Chad Henne to start this weekend for Jacksonville

Will he get the nod vs. Baltimore week three in London? The Jacksonville Jaguars are in a serious pickle this season, as they’ve built a roster that looks ready to contend right now, save for one serious issue. Just the small matter of who will be their starting quarterback, the most important position in all of sports. Blake Bortles, the former third overall pick for the team, entered the offseason as the unquestioned starter. Since the pads have come on and live fire has begun, Bortles has been unquestionably awful, and as a result, the Jags are now in dire straits and must turn to a...
