Blake Bortles named the Jacksonville Jaguars starting quarterback


One of the main storylines that everyone has been watching this National Football League preseason has been, really, the fall from grace of Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles. Henne completed 8 of 14 passes for 73 yards.

The Jaguars demoted the 25-year-old quarterback, with coach Doug Marrone announcing Wednesday that Bortles would be taken out of the starting role in favor of Chad Henne, starting with their Thursday preseason game against the Panthers. Although he racked up a chunk of his statistics late in lopsided games, there was belief that Bortles would only get better.

"Definitely for him, it's still proving that he's a franchise quarterback", Henne said. In his three-year career, Bortles has thrown for 69 touchdowns, 51 interceptions and has lost 18 fumbles. The team is poised for success; they just need a competent leader under center to earn their trust. While the Jaguars have great players at several key positions, they still have a lot of questions to answer at the quarterback position. "I think it's a mental thing now". "I think that one thing that I have said before - nothing is really status quo on the team, meaning you have to go out there and perform at every position, not just the quarterback position".

Marrone opened the job after Bortles turned in a flat performance against Tampa Bay in the preseason.


With what we've seen from training camp and the preseason, Blake Bortles doesn't seem to have corrected the issues that have plagued him as a starter in the NFL.

Instead, Bortles will make his 46th consecutive start. I knew I going to get an opportunity to play on Thursday night and that's where I was going to have a chance to show what I've been doing and what I can do. "I think that, again, you want to see that, you want to see the competitiveness, you want to see him go out there like I said you have a problem if they don't respond".

In some relatively unsurprising news, the Jacksonville Jaguars have named Blake Bortles their starting quarterback for their Week 1 game against the Houston Texans, according to Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union. I'm not going to sit here and B.S. anyone.

Henne, 32, has started 22 games (5-17) in four seasons with the Jaguars and has appeared in seven others.
