Blaine Gabbert

Posted: 2/10/2013 4:15 PM

Blaine Gabbert 


With David Caldwell saying that Gabbert would most likely be the first QB drafted in this years draft, can we honestly think that if we draft a QB that they'll be better then him (Gabbert).  Lets face it, whichever Qb we have under center this year will need pass production to be effective at all.  So my question is, if we have Blaine under center this year, will he be productive enough to win games for us?  I think he can be effective because of his arm strength, and the receiving corps we have with Cecil and Blackmon. but only if our pass protection does its job better.

I think this is Gabbert's last chance, otherwise we cut him. In a age where the Franchise Qb is key to win the Superbowl we need find ours soon otherwise this regime will fall like the last one.

RE: Blaine Gabbert 


This is his last chance to keep his job in Jacksonville. This current regime knows what's it like in this league about having to win, and if they think Blaine isn't the answer at QB they will move on. I know everybody who's followed the Jaguars has heard that Blaine has "all the arm talent", etc. But I think something that people look past is his toughness. This past year I would say He could've easily just stepped aside (shut it down) when he was injured with his dislocated shoulder, but he went out against Green Bay and had his best game as a pro to date. Granted it was a loss, but if Blaine turns it around this year I'll look back to that game and say: "that is just the tip of the iceberg"

If Blaine learns to improve his pocket presence I believe he'll be drastically better, where as last year I bet they didn't teach him a whole lot of it. They were mostly about cleaning up his footwork and speed of his drops. Now, if he is able to improve his pocket presence over this offseason and preseason the doubts I have about him will decrease.

I think Gabbert is getting his one final shot this yr by default.  Caldwell's hands are tied, he has no other options really, so this is a win win for the most part.  He plays this yr and either fails for good and we find a qb next yr when surely there will have to be something better available than in this apparently miserable class of qbs or he finally realizes his potential and we have our guy

Re: Blaine Gabbert 


Using the Jaguars luck as Quarterbacks go,here's how I see Blaines future panning out.
He goes into camp and,as usual,looks good in practice and Pre season,and wins the starting job.But then,as the "real" games start,he struggles because of his lack of pocket awareness and poor decision making and plays poorly for the first 4-5 games.At that time Henne(hopefully someone else) comes in and plays average the rest of the way.Kind of the same as what happened last year.
In the off season Gabbert is released by the Jags because his window has closed and he gets picked up by Buffalo.....or Arizona....or someone.
He goes to camp with his new team next year with no expectations and either rides the bench one more year or wins the starting job and becomes an above average QB who gets better each year until he finally takes a tean to the Super Bowl.
All because we drafted him too young and didn't have a good enough O Line and supporting cast.Also,we drafted him "too high" so he was expected to be a franchise guy right out of the box.
Some guys take longer......some guys need a better team around them.
I think Blaine needs both and he wont get either with us.
So....the Jags QB saga will continue and to rub salt in the wounds we will see Gabbert be successful somewhere else.
Just as bad thought I had.

Re: Blaine Gabbert 


I can see all of your predictions coming true, asside from the Gabbert being overly successful prediction, especially the leading a team to the superbowl prediction.  I know this franchise has been completely incapable of getting good qbs, but lets hold out hope and give the new front office a shot.  Hope is all we have to hang our hats on right now

Re: Blaine Gabbert 


It's not just QB's....its free agency and the draft in general.
All mostly luck....or "bad" luck.

Look at this offseason.
We will not be active in free agency because of our "plan" yet there are a ton of guys out there this year that could help us right away.
Revis is available by trade....Welker is a free agent...there are pass rushers.
But,we are on the "2 year via the Draft,then fill holes" plan.
So,once again...bad timing for the Jags.
Next year...there are three,count them 3,good QB's that should go in the top 5 PLUS Clowney.
My guess....we suck this coming year,but are just good enough to miss out on the top 4 guys in the draft.
