I've been doing my best to prepare for the possibility of this happening, but I just can't see it. I know O'Brien may like Bortles, but I think Rick Smith will be basically signing his walking papers with him at 1.1.

Not that he's bad, but we're probably a 6 win team if he's asked to start next year and Smith is probably looking for another job. Its very possible they decide to go that route, but I just can't see it.

Well now that's a good reason to pick Bortles. If that's the case, sign me up for the Bortles Bandwagon!

It will definitely let me know who has the power with this that's for sure. Ricky might as well start packing his bags if Bortles name is called come draft time.

Actually...

I haven't really brought this up before even though it's been rattling around in my head but...

We ditched Capers and McNair let Casserly hang on until after the draft.

McNair has said he doesn't want to fire coaches during the season. I wonder if he has the same problem with firing a GM? Since the GM's job is drafting the players, I wonder if he considers a GM's "season" to end when the draft is done.

If so, regardless of what happens, McNair may fire Rick after the draft, just like he did Casserly.

Half the board is thinking we're in rebuild mode & do not expect 6 wins. If we start Bortles from day 1 & get 6 wins..... most would consider that a success.

So we'll have to rely on leaked info on how his pro day went?

edit: That seems to conflict with this:

Quote:
* Several national media outlets are in attendance and will be in the workout, including ESPN, NFL Network, Fox Sports, NBC Sports and NFL Films. The Jacksonville Jaguars will also be broadcasting live from the workout on their website.

What are they afraid of? #becausefootballisn'tplayedinfrontofcrowds

Do you think Manziel's people will be hiding his Pro Day from the world?

Somebody in Bortles' camp needs to rethink this decision.
All eyes, of all decision makers and those who need to be there, will be there.

UCF Pro Day player to watch: Blake Bortles
Quote:
...Bortles led UCF on six second-half comebacks in 2013, tied for the most in the FBS. When trailing in the second half, Bortles had a 89.6 Total QBR, which ranked second in the FBS behind Teddy Bridgewater (92.3) and just ahead of Johnny Manziel (88.8)

Overall, Bortles was more effective after halftime than in the first half of games, posting an 82.4 Total QBR in the second half, a 74.0 in the first half last season.

Bortles also had a nice touch on his deep throws. He completed 50 percent of his throws that traveled 20 or more yards downfield, tied with Oregon's Marcus Mariota for the second-highest percentage among quarterbacks from automatic-qualifying conferences last season. Only Tajh Boyd of Clemson fared better (54.7 percent)...

Just out of curiosity, have you ordered your Blake Bortles Texan Jersey yet or going to wait to see how he does today?
