There were some pretty poor performances witnessed around the NFL on Sunday. The Pittsburgh Steelers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers stunk up their contests but perhaps no team looked worse than the Jacksonville Jaguars. One has to wonder if this team is capable of winning a game this season. One thing in favor of the Jaguars is that if they go winless, they will have their pick of drafting an actual quarterback in the 2014 NFL Draft.
QB Blaine Gabbert is not a starting NFL quarterback. He might have to sit next week when the team travels to Oakland after receiving 15 stitches on his right hand when he got his hand stuck in an opposing players facemask. If Gabbert can’t go, Chad Henne will get the starting nod. Henne did manage to get more out of the Jacksonville offense when he played last season. Gabbert’s afternoon saw him finish with a 3.47 yards per attempt average, the seventh lowest number since 1960.
