Since the drafted him, they've got a new owner, new GM, and they will have a new head coach (actually their second new HC since drafting him). There's nobody left who's got one speck of loyalty to Gabbert, and I expect him to be a benchwarmer - if not gone altogether - next season. Even if that just means Chad Henne as the starter (and it probably does for one year anyway), I think Gabbert's pretty much finished in Jacksonville.

Yeah, true. Honestly, I never liked him coming out of Mizzou. I like him less now as a player. He's gained a lot of tendencies that HWWNBN did in his 1st couple years. He seems like a real dick too, imo

The one (and only) thing the Jags got lucky about is the year they drafted him. If it had been one year earlier, or if the rookie salary cap hadn't been implemented, they'd probably be financially forced to give him another year or two. As it is, there will be some dead money if they choose to get rid of him, but given where I think the Jags are relative to the expected 2013 cap, nothing that will keep them getting rid of him altogether if that's the direction they choose to go.

I just looked at Gabbert's game logs and in two seasons it looks like he's had one game where you could say maybe he looked alright. He was 27-38 for 220 yards and 2 TD and 2 INTs in a loss against Detroit this season. That his best looking game as a pro came when he also through 2 INTs says something about his skills as an NFL QB.

He hasn't had one game where he threw for over 200 yards and a 60% completion without throwing an INT.

Gabbert has good potential, but he has to be kept clean to realize it. As soon as the pressure gets close, he panics. That can be difficult to coach out of a QB.

How many Jags could play for the Texans? Their young WRs, Posluszny, their kickers? Maybe the least talented team in the NFL. Good luck to the lucky coach taking this job.

Maybe, Mularky recognized that........and didn't want to take the "maybe" out of your description by having to accept the owner-purported choice of Tebow at QB.:kitten:

Well, after only one really bad season Mularky is gone. ... I was hoping for at least him to finish out the contract, specially if he wanted to move the franchise to LA.

Shouldn't have taken a a genius to realize Henne, while not anywhere near a pro-bowler was light years ahead a better QB.

To help em out... I'll send them a 6th rounder for Posluszny, we could use some ILB help.

Wow, do you realize the Jags played the hardest/tuffest schedule this season? How easy you forget Mojo. Funny to think the Jags almost beat the Patriots, while you guys got spanked on primetime. Snagglepuss is gone, both Gene Smith and Mike Mularkey...along w/Plain Garbage.

Nope, waiting for Greg Roman from 49ers as HC and Alex Smith. Snagglepuss is gone! Plain Garbage is camp fodder.

What's your point? If they had played an easier schedule they would have gone 4-12? 5-11?

Yes, even with that crappy of a team, they probably would have won more games...the loss of Mojo didn't help either. Compare the Chiefs to the Jags schedule. When the Texans got the 1st pick in the NFL for Mario Williams, didn't the Texans, that season have the hardest schedule?

I'm afraid to check. I'm still trying to wipe that season from my memory :(

People were saying about the same thing last year (and maybe early this year) about the Colts. And now many of those same people are saying the Colts have parity (and maybe some are secretly even thinking superiority), with the Texans.
Jacksonville can turn this thing around very, very quickly. Afterall didn't the Texans have to go into OT to beat them in Reliant this year ?

It appears that the Jags have found their David Carr.



David Caldwell: Gabbert still has upside (http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/01/11/david-caldwell-gabbert-still-has-upside/)
Posted by Josh Alper on January 11, 2013, 11:17 AM EST


The big story out of Jaguars General Manager David Caldwell’s introduction to the media was his firm statement that Donald Duck has as much chance of being a member of the Jaguars this season as Tim Tebow.

Tebow wasn’t the only quarterback who came up for discussion, though. Blaine Gabbert, who finished his second season with the Jaguars on injured reserve and didn’t do much to encourage confidence that he was the man for the future before that, was also on Caldwell’s list of talking points. Caldwell plans to have four quarterbacks on the roster in camp and said there would be an open competition for the quarterback job, but said that wasn’t something to interpret as writing off Gabbert altogether.

“He is still young. He’s had two different offensive coordinators in his first two years. Get a coach in here and get some sustainability for him. I think it’s important to see what he can do. Look at some quarterbacks. It takes maybe more than two years, three or four years. He came out as a junior and he’s a very young quarterback and he still has a lot of upside,” Caldwell said, via the Florida Times-Union. “I always thought Blaine was going to be a long-term project when he came out anyway. I studied him when he came out and he came out from the spread offense. I felt like it was going to be a longer process for him. Look at the quarterbacks like Matt Ryan and Peyton Manning, they spent a full five years in college. Blaine should be a rookie coming out this year. Let’s work with him.”

In all honesty, I don't see the shear fear I saw with Carr.


I also don't see why Gabbert was taken in the first round, but that's a different story all together.

It could be that Gabbert has not experienced the number of sacks in his first 2 seasons that Carr enjoyed.

GABBERT

2011-12 Jacksonville 15 games 40 sacks
2012-13 Jacksonville 10 22

CARR

2002-03 Houston 16 76
2003-04 Houston 12 15


Gabbert still has time to perfect the Carr fetal position.

CARR

2004-05 Houston 16 49
2005-06 Houston 16 68
2006-07 Houston 16 41

LMAO!!! Tough ****... You realize the hardest schedule argument only comes into play because Jacksonville had to play Houston & Indianapolis twice this year and Houston got stuck playing a two win Jacksonville team? The only other difference in their schedules? The Jaguars didn't play the Ravens or Broncos. Not that it actually benefitted them, since they lost to both Cincinnati & Oakland.

More accurate portrayal of SOS has Texans and Jags pretty much identical. Almost top 10 but not quite, certainly not THE toughest.

Good read. The most impressive team on that list are the Vikings. 4th toughest schedule, still won 10 games without a QB. They'll be tough next year.

Interesting the Texans & Pats end up with the same SOS & the same record. Also, Peyton beating a weak schedule is why his teams couldn't win in the Post Season.

Odd to be sure. But what I find really hilarious is the 13-4 Texans alive in the playoffs, and the Jags going 2-14 and still not getting the 1st pick in the draft. That makes me laugh and laugh.

BTW, who is Snagglepuss? And you do admit that the Jags are the least talented team in the NFL, right?
