Is Bortles Jacksonville’s franchise quarterback for the future? posted on 11/06/2014

It’s no secret that the Jacksonville Jaguars haven’t had the best luck in terms of franchise success. Point to a small market, less than enthusiastic fans, and sub standard on field performance as reason why, but there may be hope in the distant future for the Jags and the city of Jacksonville. And that hope may lie with Blake Bortles.

While the stat sheet may not be kind to Bortles, let’s take a deeper look and see what’s really going on here. Bortles is a rookie QB. Any rookie QB is going to have growing pains, as the game is just that much more complex and faster compared to college.  And Bortles got thrown into the league needing some development (and all QBs need development to some degree) and was put on a very bad and young team, but there is no doubt that Bortles has the mental capacity to ingest the dense Jacksonville playbook and the skill set to become a high end QB in this league.

The team insists that Bortles won’t start yet but the rookie could eventually get the job. The other probable starter, Chad Henne, just does not have the skills to lead a team with minimal talent.

The team will have to make do without Justin Blackmon, a talented wide receiver who has been suspended indefinitely for substance abuse. Thus the team will have Allen Robinson, Margise Lee (both rookies), Ace Sanders and Cecil Shorts as the top receivers.

The other weapons that Bortles will have to work with are Marcedes Lewis and running back Toby Gerhart who came via free agency. Lewis has been a perennial underachiever during his career.  Former No.2 pick Luke Joeckel struggled during his rookie year and he could be assigned to the blind-side position with the departure of Eugene Monroe. The team hopes that Joeckel can prove that he is not a bust.
