Jaguars Blaine Gabbert On Record Pace

New, comments

It's no secret Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert has struggled so far as a rookie, especially in his last three games where he's failed to throw for over 100 yards. Just how bad has it been, though?

Bad.

Jimmy Clausen bad.

Patrick Daugherty shines the light on just how bad Gabbert's been so far this season:

There's really no way to sugarcoat just how bad Gabbert has been. If Jimmy Clausen's 2010 set the modern standard for quarterback futility, Gabbert could be pushing for a new benchmark this season. Consider:

-His quarterback rating of 62.0 is dead last in the NFL and 4.5 points worse than Rex Grossman's. Gabbert could double his rating and it still wouldn't match Aaron Rodgers' 129.1 mark.

-He's averaging 129.6 yards per game, 41.4 fewer than anybody else.

-His 5.24 yards per attempt is 0.49 worse than anybody else's.

-His 45.7 completion percentage is 7.6 percent worse than anybody else's.

Now, it's only six games in, but if Gabbert can't rebound against the Colts this weekend... I don't know what to say for him.
