RTC: Gabbert at crossroads

9/24/2013

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Blaine Gabbert is back as the Jaguars' starting quarterback.

Coach Gus Bradley made the announcement on Monday, the day after the Jaguars lost 45-17 at Seattle. He also said he's hoping for the Gabbert he saw in training camp and against the New York Jets in the team's second preseason game, not the one who played against Kansas City in the opener.

"He just has some special talent," Bradley said of Gabbert, who completed 16 of 35 passes for 121 yards and two interceptions against the Chiefs.

Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union writes that Gabbert is at a crossroads in his career. He has yet to live up to being selected with the 10th overall pick of the 2011 draft and is running out of time to prove that he can be an elite quarterback.

Here are some other pieces of Jaguars content from around the web:

Tight end Marcedes Lewis has yet to play this season because of a calf injury, but Bradley is optimistic that Lewis could make his debut Sunday against Indianapolis, Hays Carlyon of the T-U writes.

My weekly Upon Further Review post takes a look at the Jaguars' first-down woes, the ineffective ground game and the damage Seattle tight ends did on Sunday.
