Doug Marrone: "I'm looking for someone that's gonna lead this offense"

Doug Marrone:

Career backup Chad Henne entered the game Thursday night and the Jags left all of the starting linemen and wide receivers in with him.

"I'm looking for someone that's going to lead this offence". "I'm not happy with the performance".

"I'm not gonna sit here and B.S. anyone, I mean, everyone saw it out there", Marrone said.

Admittedly, in his first two years, Bortles looked like the emerging "franchise quarterback" every team lusts after.

Blake Bortles got his first start in week two of his rookie season and has held the job since then. He completed 8 of 13 passes for 65 yards and was sacked once.

As the featured team on this year's season of Hard Knocks, the Bucs are getting the national TV treatment for their second preseason game.

Somewhere, Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman may have been laughing, given that, earlier this month, he said, "Blake Bortles has shown you enough to where you don't think Kaep would be a solid fit?" While the Jaguars picked up Bortles' fifth-year option, it's only guaranteed for injury, so Bortles' future with the team, and perhaps in the league, may be on the line.

"I met with both quarterbacks afterward", Marrone told reporters, referring to Bortles and Chad Henne. The plan before the game was for Henne to get some first-team reps. At least if the team went with Brandon Allen, either in Week 1 or at some point in the season (which now seems inevitable), they could learn whether they have anything in him before the position group looks dramatically different in 2018.

When I talk about earning the right to play, that's what we're doing - trying to earn the right to play. In 2013, Henne kept the starting job after Blaine Gabbert was cleared medically. He completed 59 percent of his passes last season for 3,905 yards with 23 touchdowns and 16 interceptions.

The Jaguars will have the day off on Friday but will return to work this weekend. He threw two first-half passes, which were dropped in the end zone by Keelan Cole and Allen Robinson as the Jaguars trailed 12-0 at halftime. But the one thing Head Coach Dirk Koetter wanted from his offense this week, after an up-and-down preseason opener, was to finish drives. Henne has been on both sides of this equation but at 32 years old is a different player than he was coming out of MI and certainly different than when he signed with the Jaguars in 2012.
