Jags committed to Gabbert

Shortly after being hired by the Jaguars, G.M. Dave Caldwell slammed the door on a Jacksonville homecoming
for Tim Tebow. Caldwell now seems to be keeping the door wide open for 2011 first-rounder Blaine Gabbert. “That was his second year,” Caldwell recently said of Gabbert, via Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union. “What were they saying about other quarterbacks after their second year? We’re looking for improvement [in his third year]. We need to build around him. We’ll upgrade whenever we can upgrade.” It’s a bit surprising; a new G.M. usually wants a new coach, and a new coach usually wants a new quarterback. Caldwell got his new coach in Gus Bradley, but Bradley seems to be sold on Gabbert. “He’s been very impressive so far in our conversations,” Bradley said of Gabbert. But Gabbert hasn’t been impressive on the field in two seasons. And Gabbert played in only 10 games during the 2012 campaign, allowing Chad Henne to make a case for a shot at becoming the 2013 starter. Of course, there’s a chance the Jaguars are blowing smoke, either to create a trade market for Gabbert (not likely) or to conceal their true plans for free agency or the draft (more likely). Really, if the Jaguars hope to pursue Matt Flynn or Alex Smith or Mike Vick or anyone else in free agency, or perhaps to finagle the draft board to land a new quarterback of the future without having to trade up or free from fear of a last-minute leapfrogging, it makes no sense to show their cards now. When it comes to the offseason, actions always speak louder than words. And, for the smart teams, words are nothing more than a way to conceal intended actions.

And the hits just keep on commin'!

I swear, the Jags have the worst direction of any team in the league... Worse than the Browns even. These Jags exactly resemble the Lions of the late 80's early 90's... They've got one of the best running backs in the game, nothing more, don't want anything more, and they won't let him walk either...

The Gabert thing is just one part of it, he resembles Joey Herrington... And Blackman looks exactly like Roy Williams does... The rest of the team is made up of nobodies or seriously aged somebodies...

They can't sell tickets, Tebow alone could do that in that market... So it's a good thing that they don't want him. I swear, they've got to look at what they've got, what they want, and whom can get that for them... I'd venture to say that another couple of seasons like this last one, which there have been plenty, and that franchise will have no choice BUT to fold... And I could see the league being the ones to step in and make it happen... It's a team, not an ant farm.

They draft horribly year after year, and bring in nameless, worthless players. I was talking to my bro the other day and we both agree this is a badly run team.

They dumped their GM so I woudlnt' assume that they'll continue to have poorly

This is stupid, Chad Hene played amazing. He did what Gabbert will never do. (No offense to Blaine Gabbert fans)
