Jags name Blake Bortles their regular season starter

Cam Newtown

Bortles is owed $19 million for 2018, so if the Jaguars do choose to go with Henne, it seems like Bortles' tenure in Jacksonville may be over. Bortles completed 12-of-16 passes for 124 yards and a touchdown. Following an offseason of optimistic praise from new football tsar Tom Coughlin and coach Doug Marrone, Bortles performed poorly in Jacksonville's first two preseason games. I'm sure both quarterbacks would have liked to done a better job, but offensively I think everyone needs to do a better job'.

All eyes continue to be on the quarterback battle, as Chad Henne was the starting quarterback for the game against the Panthers. His second season represented a step forward, with his yards per attempt and touchdown rate rising and his interception rate taking a slight dip, but Year 3 exposed that much of his "progress" the year prior had been the result of dominating garbage time. I'm going to go back and look at things and see where we're at. He also threw an interception that was returned 48 yards and set up a touchdown in the third quarter. The team is poised for success; they just need a competent leader under center to earn their trust.

"I always watch how players respond", Marrone said. "I think it's a mental thing now". Henne was benched for the rookie after three games in 2014 and has not started a game since.

Marrone has not been pleased with what he has seen from his quarterbacks thus far in the preseason.

"I show up tomorrow (Friday), tomorrow's off day so whenever the next day is I'll show up and when they tell me to go play, I'll go play for as long as they let me", Bortles said.

Now he's going to make his 46th consecutive start, and it will come against a Houston defense that has sacked him 24 times in six games - all Jaguars' losses.

After a poor showing in their second preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Jacksonville Jaguars have said that the starting position at quarterback is up for grabs. The Jaguars still have a few other starting competitions to figure out before facing the Texans in Week 1. "I think there's just one out there where maybe I just probably throw the ball away".
