Blake Bortles Has Officially Been Demoted

Blake Bortles Has Officially Been Demoted”

Interestingly enough the Jacksonville Jaguars shaky offensive line, which has been one of the major reasons for their offensive struggles, is why Blake Bortles got the starting nod. He has a career record of 18-35 (.340) with a 75.5 quarterback rating, 12,931 passing yards, and 58 touchdowns against 63 interceptions. 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.

Jaguars coach Doug Marrone decided on his starting quarterback - at the least for the season opener - pegging Blake Bortles to start Week 1 against the Houston Texans on September 10.

Khan said he is open to anything that his staff suggests would make the Jaguars a better team.

"Definitely for him, it's still proving that he's a franchise quarterback", Henne said.

He showed flashes like his 31-yard deep throw to wideout Allen Robinson in the second quarter.

"I'm really looking to see the game", Doug explained. He also made a deep throw to rookie Keelan Cole, who dropped the pass. Henne didn't have any touchdown throws or turnovers. I'm just trying to figure out who is going to be that guy in that position that can lead our team.

That risk didn't outweigh the potential rewards they saw from playing Henne, at least not right out of the gate, and that leaves the Jags right back where they started this summer.

Marrone has not been pleased with what he has seen from his quarterbacks thus far in the preseason. "I think it's a mental thing now". "I think that's hard on whoever's playing quarterback". "So you have two options and I think you pick one and you go".

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. "Yeah, he had flaws here and there, but at the end of the day I feel like he can go out there and make it happen".
