This season Jaguars QB Blaine Gabbert was benched 5 weeks in, in favor of Chad Henne. Jags Offensive Coordinator says that it is way too early to call Gabbert’s career over though.
“I don’t know how you can say that,” Fisch told the Jaguars’ official website. “There were guys who are in the Pro Bowl who never had taken a snap in the NFL at 24. You start giving names and now it sounds like you’re comparing him to those guys. I’m not saying that.”-NFL.com
Fisch says that the demotion was beneficial to Gabbert’s growth. While Fisch is true that some QB’s don’t develop until later in their career, but those are generally very rare exceptions. Gabbert’s career may not be over, his Jag’s career may not have much time left if the Jag’s draft a QB.
