Open Locker Room: Gabbert feels "great"

The stitches are out, the hand is healed, so Blaine Gabbert once again is the Jaguars’ starting quarterback. And Gabbert said he’s ready. Gabbert, a third-year veteran who will start at quarterback for the Jaguars ’ against Indianapolis Sunday, said Wednesday he expects the two weeks missed because of a lacerated throwing hand to benefit him upon his return to the lineup. Jaguars Head Coach Gus Bradley named Gabbert the starter Monday. "I feel great," Gabbert said early Wednesday afternoon as the Jaguars (0-3) prepared to play the Indianapolis Colts (2-1) at EverBank Field Sunday at 1 p.m.

Hopefully, I can add a spark to the offense."

Cross Jaguars off the Josh Freeman sweepstakes list | ProFootballTalk

Immediately upon benching quarterback-in-a-contract year Josh Freeman, there were reports that the Bucs were putting him on the trading block. At least one of the usual suspects in the quarterback market is letting it be known they're not interested. According to Mark Long of the Associated Press, the Jaguars have "zero interest" in trading for Freeman. They made a degree of sense, because they have cap space to accommodate Freeman, a bad group of quarterbacks, and a clear need for a long-term answer at the position.

Well, if I can state the obvious for a second, the Jacksonville Jaguars are on their way to having one of the worst seasons of any team in the NFL. Nothing on this team is clicking whatsoever, and they’re coming off a loss last week against one of the top teams in the league, the Seattle Seahawks, a loss in which Pete Carroll pulled his starting QB Russell Wilson because the game was so out of hand. Oh, and not to mention, his backup, Tarvaris Jackson, came in and threw a touchdown right off the bat. So, yes, this team is very bad.
