Jaguars Coach Says Quarterback Job ‘Up for Grabs’

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone says that he is not pleased with how his quarterbacks are progressing and that the job is anyone’s for the taking.

The incumbent starter, Blake Bortles, went 8-for-13 for 65 yards in his four drives leading the team against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in their second preseason contest on Thursday. Each drive he led ended with a punt.

His backup, Chad Henne, got some action with the first-team offense and finished the game going 6-of-10 for 44 yards. Jacksonville lost the game 12–8.

“It’s right up there for grabs, and either person can take it,” Marrone said about the quarterback competition.

I’m looking for someone that’s going to lead this offense. I’m not happy with the performance today. I’m not going to sit here and BS anyone. Everyone saw it out there. Whatever you want to call it, I’m still trying to evaluate who the best person is at that position.”

The Jaguars are moving at a different speed in training camp than they have in previous seasons.Article source: https://www.si.com/nfl/2017/08/18/jaguars-qb-competition-blake-bortles-chad-henne
