Gabbert's return and how it effects Blackmon (1 Viewer)

ant

What do you guys think will happen to Blackmon's production when Gabbert is healthy enough to play? Do we think that they will go back to him even though they are playing much better since Henne has played? Just curious what others are thinking.

 
They need to start Gabbert to get the first pick in the draft. Blackmon will take a slight hit if they go back to Gabbert, but he's a beast and will still be a good #1 FF WR.

 
Jacksonville should probably be contracted from the league if they start Gabbert over a healthy Henne.

Yeah,that is what I think,but they will probably go back to Gabbert when healthy,I think.

 
I'll admit that, as a Blackmon owner, I'm happy to see Henne under center, since JB really seemed to take off last year after Henne got the job. But I think we need to dispense with the notion that Henne is the NFL's version of Mox from "Varsity Blues". He's a journeyman QB who has never been able to hold down a starting job, and while we all remember the Houston game last year, his 2012 QBR was actually *worse* than Gabbert's.

Or to put it another way -- the guy is playing for the worst team in the NFL, with the worst starting QB in the NFL, and the coaches *still* aren't willing to give him the job. The assumption seems to be that that's an indictment of the coaching staff, and it may well be. But it sure as hell doesn't say much for Henne, either.

This!

However, if they do go back to one of the biggest busts of all time, I'll try to trade Blackmon for hopefully good value.
Easy there, killer.

You're omitting about 40 years of first-round picks that didn't pan out. There are many guys that were taken in the first round that barely played a down, let alone lasted 3 seasons. Gabbert hasn't done well but I don't think he'd be in the top 25 of greatest draft busts. There are probably three #1 overall picks that could be labeled as complete busts, plus a boatload of top 5 picks.

You have to be joking? Are you joking? You're not serious, are you? Killer.Out of all the QBs taken in the top 10 over the last 25 years, here are the only ones worse then him:

Jamarcus, Leaf, Akili Smith... Outside of these 3, he's in there with the likes of Heath Shuler but ahead of guys like Joey Harrington.

Either you have nothing to do but argue for no reason on a message board or you're insane.

who exactly is going to give them a run for their money bottoming out the league? You gotta figure the giants eventually win a game or two, and the Bucs might be a dumpster fire but i'd still give them the edge over Henne and the Jaguars unless they are also tanking for first pick.
