Heading into 2011, Henne was entering his 3rd year as the Dolphins starter and looking to solidify his hold on the team’s starting quarterback position. He played well in two of his first three games before an injury to his non-throwing shoulder not only ended his season but also his career in Miami. He landed in Jacksonville in what could be described as the league’s best backup quarterback job in terms of opportunity. Blaine Gabbert struggled mightily as a rookie and we have no idea how long new head coach Mike Mularkey will stick with him if his struggles continue.
Jags' Bortles getting ready for first career start-- Wed Sep 24 4:19 pm --
Takes all reps with first team offense in practice
Befitting his status as the new starter, Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles took nearly all of the first-team reps during practice today. Bortles said his mindset is a “little different” from Weeks 1-3, when he studied the game plan but got scout-team snaps to this week, where he is studying the game plan in the morning and at night and running it in the afternoon.(Florida Times Union)
FF Today's Take:This is great news because Chad Henne was barely completing half of his passes this year. Blake Bortles came on strong at the end of training camp and now gets a chance to revitalize an offense ranked 25th in passing yards per game after three weeks. He will make mistakes and remains a QB2 for now, but has the ability to allow receivers Cecil Shorts and Allen Robinson to become productive fantasy assets in deeper formats.
