The Jacksonville Jaguars are awful. However, they gave the Houston Texans – one of the top teams in the NFL – all they could handle on Sunday, racking up 37 points and sending the game to overtime. Yes, they lost, but baby steps.
Jaguars QB Chad Henne pumped some life into an otherwise worthless offense, throwing for four touchdowns and resembling a real live NFL quarterback. This is something that former first-round pick Blaine Gabbert has failed to do in his two NFL seasons. Henne threw for 354 yards and four touchdowns, and it’s now being reported that he’s going to start on Sunday vs. the Tennessee Titans.
“Chad Henne will start Sunday. Based on performance Sunday. #jaguars,” tweets John Oesher of Jaguars.com.
Gabbert is injured, but it doesn’t matter. Henne got the team going in ways that Gabbert just hasn’t been able to do. Unless Henne falls on his face, Gabbert probably won’t make another start for the Jags this season. Maybe ever.
