Bortles paying a QB coach to work on his mechanics

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

On Saturday afternoon, the Jacksonville Jaguars fired its offensive coordinator Greg Olson. Two days later, Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles has decided to fly in a quarterback coach to work with him.

Adam Dedeaux will attempt to help his mechanics. One has to question why Bortles is doing this and why aren’t the Jaguars coaching staff doing that.

They’re 2-5 this season and their head coach Gus Bradley is in hot water, as his job is safe for now.

Dedeaux and his partner Tom House also worked with Tim Tebow when he was still attempted to be a National Football League player. After working with House and Dedeaux, he signed with the Philadelphia Eagles.

He lasted a few weeks with the Eagles, before being among their final cuts at training camp in 2015. Now, Tebow is a New York Mets player in their farm system.

Bradley refused to make a quarterback change in the middle of last Thursday’s game against the Tennessee Titans. His mechanics have gotten longer each week and he has been struggling with his accuracy.

He’s going to give it a shot to change now — but it may be more difficult to do.

The 24-year-old signal-caller has gone 174 of 290 for 1,904 yards with three 300-yard passing games. He also has 12 touchdowns to nine interceptions.

Since he has come into the league, interceptions have been a problem. He had 17 picks in 2014, before adding 18 last season.
