Jaguars Starting QB Spot is Blaine Gabbert’s to Lose

The Jaguars starting quarterback spot is Blaine Gabbert‘s to lose, according to Vito Stellino.

Blaine Gabbert threw for a horrific 1,662 yards with nine touchdowns and six interceptions while only playing in 10 games.

There is no way that the starting job should be Gabbert’s to lose; in the 10 games he played for the Jaguars, the signal caller won just one game. Some may argue that the Jaguars didn’t have many go-to playmakers in 2012, but the team didn’t get bad play from their offensive line and used a first-round draft choice on a wide receiver, Justin Blackmon, who flashed potential from time to time.

It is time for the Jaguars to move past the Gabbert stage and look for a new franchise quarterback. Now that the Chiefs have traded for Alex Smith, it’s safe to say that the Jaguars can pick whichever quarterback they want in the draft. Jacksonville could have Geno Smith, Tyler Wilson or Matt Barkley with the second pick if they’d like.

On the open market, as well, a number of possibilities exist for the Jaguars. Matt Flynn has shown some talent in limited opportunity and Jason Campbell would also be an upgrade over Gabbert.

The Jaguars need to move on from Blaine Gabbert immediately, or else they’ll be forced to suffer through another wasted season.
