Jacksonville Jaguars second year quarterback Blaine Gabbert decided to fire back at the critics who believe he plays “scared.”
“I think that’s part of our job description: Deal with the crap,” Gabbert told Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports. “But for people to say (I’m scared), I just don’t understand it. They’ve never played in the NFL. They really don’t know what goes on, or what happens.
“So that argument, I think, is just a copout for people to make because they’re — I don’t want to necessarily want to say jealous — but, they couldn’t do my job. And that’s the truth. They can’t do my job. There are 31 other guys that can do my job, and that’s it.”
I still believe Gabbert can be a good NFL quarterback. If he can fight through the criticism and prove people wrong, it will show what kind of player he really is.
