Last week: 32 (+0)
It’s still neck and neck for them and the Chiefs. I don’t know if it really matters. They both suck. I think it will take one team winning to show any separation between them and I don’t see that happening. Gabbert has been put on IR with elbow and forearm problems, but it really just seems like a convenient way for Mike Mularkey to get Chad Henne 6 games to show if he has anything in this offense.
He looked good against Houston’s tough defense, going 16 of 33 for 354 yards and 4 touchdowns, but he’s always been inconsistent. He’s still the same quarterback that got benched for Matt Moore in Miami and who completed 9 of 20 for 71 yards against Oakland’s terrible secondary, blowing a big lead, a few weeks ago. I guess it’s wise for the Jaguars to see what they have with him, but they’ll probably be disappointed.
As for Gabbert, you can’t help but wonder if he’s played his last snap with the Jaguars. His tenure with the Jaguars was a miserable failure from the start and a terrible decision by Gene Smith to trade up and grab a media hyped kid who never did anything of note in the conference where defenses go to die, the Big 12. This teams looks destined for 1-15 or 2-14 and Gene Smith, the architect of this disaster, could be fired, leaving Gabbert without his greatest backer and putting a new front office in charge of a top-2 draft pick.
