So far during training camp it doesn’t look like Jacksonville Jaguars second-year quarterback Blaine Gabbert will make any kind of major leap this season.
“Quarterback Blaine Gabbert didn’t look like a guy who’s made the big jump out of an offseason many of us expected,” wrote Paul Kuharsky of ESPN.com. “There are subtle improvements for sure, some I can see (better footwork) and some I am sure I can’t. But he still throws an occasional ball into the ground well in front of an intended receiver on a play that is basically just given away. You watch it and don’t understand how it still happens. He threw one into the ground in front of Laurent Robinson and another short of Mike Thomas. After the throw to Thomas, Gabbert talked with him, so maybe there was miscommunication about where he should have been. I continue to believe he needs more time and can be effective with these coaches, but I didn’t come away from this morning session feeling like he was much more effective than the last time I saw him.”
