A lot of fans at the beginning of the season were calling for Blaine Gabbert to start week one. The Jaguars organization, on the other hand, insisted that David Garrard was the starting QB. The plan was to give Gabbert, who many scouts said would take time to develop in the NFL, some time to sit behind a solid starting QB in Garrard.
Garrard was not playing well at all in the preseason, but most people were still shocked to hear that the Jaguars put Garrard, a five-year starter for the team, out on his butt. Without Garrard, the Jaguars were reduced to starting Luke McCown and letting Gabbert sit. Of course, the thing the Jaguars forgot to consider is that McCown is not even remotely good.
As it stands right now, Gabbert is the starter and will remain the starter. Still, when comparing storylines, there are a very low number of teams who go from naming three different starting quarterbacks (not due to injuries) in the first month of the season and having any success.
The Jaguars magically have the 4th ranked defense in yards allowed after being near the bottom of the league last year. Still, the Jaguars are 31st in points per game and have rushed for more yardage than they've passed this year.
That's a pretty major fail!
