It's that time of year.
As soon as the dust of the season has cleared, it's time for new coaches to tell fans how great the players that got the old coaches fired can be.
The entire interview is highly entertaining as it covers the gamut from talking up the player and talking down the media and his former coaches while at the same time stopping well short of an actual endorsement.
Scelfo's extensive comments on the second-year disaster are loaded with classic coach-speak about how if Gabbert were coming out of the draft now, he'd be the top overall pick.
That may be true, but if any of the other quarterbacks drafted in the last two years were coming out now, you'd probably say the same thing about them too. More importantly, if there were a redraft of the 2011 draft, Gabbert would likely be no higher than a fourth round selection at best.
What's interesting is that despite claims that Gabbert would be drafted first this year, Scelfo won't commit to him being the starter. That tells you everything you need to know about how goofy the claim is.
If the Jaguars' staff really truly believed Gabbert was worthy of the top pick in this year's draft, they would be backing him unequivocally. The fact that they aren't says everything about what they really believe.
