Are an of us surprised by the fact that JDR came out today and named Blaine Gabbert the starter? It would of been much harder for him to find reasons to let Luke McCown continue to start after that terrible game against the Jets. This season McCown hasn't done much of anything, even though to be fair in the first game he wasn't asked to do anything.
This may not be shocking news but the fact remains that the Gabbert era has now begun. Gabbert now takes his place in the short line of Jaguars starting quarterbacks. The question is will be successful and beloved like Brunell or will he be so-so and have the fans ready to run him out of town like Leftwich.
This also builds up what I'm sure will be called the rookie bowl, with Gabbert and number 1 overall pick Cam Newton, starting against each other this weekend. It will be fun to watch and see how these two young and promising quarterbacks play this weekend. It will also be interesting to see how Gabbert plays the rest of the year and how the Jags fans take this news. Will they look it as a lost season or will most fans see it as an exciting time to be a Jaguars fan? I guess we will get some of our answers this Sunday.
