I had this whole big post ready to go about the offense moving forward and how to rebuild it over the next 2-3 years. Then, the OT loss to Houston happened, and my thoughts on the subject changed a bit. I will not say that the near loss did not convince me that going forward Henne is the answer, but in some ways it really has me questioning whether Gabbert is the answer. I guess in many ways the game was somewhat of a proverbial "slap in the face" for me that put things into perspective a bit more.
While it is hard to expect more 30+ point showings from this offense, and specifically days from Henne like he had vs. the Texans, I find it hard to believe that the game was a total fluke. Probability would dictate that it is extremely unlikely that the Jaguar offensive play and Texan defensive play would deviate from the expectation on the same day. I obviously cannot say that it never would happen, but the more realistic conclusion is that perhaps a Henne-led offense is not as brutal as a Gabbert-led offense. Whether either is acceptable is an entirely different story.
So as I/you reconsider my/your position on the QB situation moving forward, I figured it would be of interest to bring to your attention some of the better options, talent and projected draft spot considered, likely to be available in the upcoming draft.
