Yet, while the team continues to stay with Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne, they have no produced this year. The team is presently 0-4 on the year, and the team continues to call for the team to sign quarterback Tim Tebow.

Team management continues to say that they will not sign Tebow and are sticking with their current two quarterbacks. But first-year head coach Gus Bradley has announced that he is sticking with Gabbert as the starting quarterback.

He had just a 179 passing yards and three interceptions on Sunday. The Jaguars lost 37-3 at home in Jacksonville to the Indianapolis Colts.

In his three-year NFL career, he is 5-21 as a starter, and has completed a brutal 53.4 percent of his passes. He has 21 touchdown passes to 22 interceptions in his career.

“I’m staying strong with Blaine because he competed and he’s doing what we asked him to do,” Bradley said.

And if Bradley wants to win at least a game this season, he will have to bench Gabbert, as Henne gives the Jags the best chance to win. And he will have to do it sooner rather than later.

The Jags have not won a game since Week 12 of last year with Henne as the quarterback. The Jags won 24-19 over the Tennessee Titans in that game.

Gabbert’s last win as Jags quarterback came on September 23rd, 2012, as the team won their first won of the season last year and it was one of their two wins of the season. The Jags won 22-17 over the Colts in that game.
