Gabbert became decent?

#1

I have heard/read where some Jag fans thought Gabbert had developed into a pretty good QB....and then I watched him....

He might be a "tick" better than when he was here, but what I saw was still a very below average QB. 

I still saw the yips, the bad throws, the panic, the poor accuracy, the lack of composure. 

Some said if you keep Bortles he will develop like BG did...except I don't see where BG really got much better. (He did go from being
a 56% completion to a 60% completion passer, but everyone's passing % has gone up, Brees tossed at like 75%.) 

After hearing the pro-BG comments, I thought I'd see as much better QB than I did. What I saw was ineptness.

He got that .3 second release though.

He was a slight improvement over Cassel, but he isn't good.

Who ever said Gabbert became decent?
Never argue with idiots. They drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

Some in here did. And on local talk radio.

He's still terrible. He doesn't play awkwardly scared anyone but is only effective with 2 second throws to his WRs near the sidelines (i.e. catch and run).

Gabbs sucks. Always has, always will. Maybe someone out there called him a 'decent backup' but even that is really being more optimistic than his career deserves.


Yes, it's improvement, but it's Blaine Gabbert 2012 level improvement. - Pirkster

Whew!  Thanks.

Regardless, he does have a 1 - 0 record against us.

At some point you just have to let go of what you thought should happen and live in what is happening.

Welp, we need to sign him as our bridge QB until we can get our young drafted guy up to speed.

So that's how far the bar has fallen.

Uh, no. The D knocked him out of the game this year. Nothing he did beat us.

Bortles is a much better qb than Gabbert. I'm not sure how anyone who has watched the team can say otherwise.

Gabbert also had a prime MJD churning yards with no help.
