A new conversation

HOUSTON – On Sunday, the conversation changed. Maybe it changed permanently, or maybe it’s just temporary, but the reality following a 43-37 overtime loss to the Houston Texans at Reliant Stadium Sunday is people will now see the Jaguars’ quarterback situation through a different lens. Now, Chad Henne is part of the discussion. Very much so. As well he must be.

Justin Blackmon didn’t surprise Jaguars Head Coach Mike Mularkey a bit Sunday. The rookie wide receiver didn’t surprise himself, either. Blackmon, the No. 5 overall selection in the 2012 NFL Draft, caught seven passes for a career-high 236 yards and an 81-yard touchdown in a 43-37 overtime loss to the Houston Texans at Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas, Sunday afternoon. Blackmon’s previous best game this season was six receptions for 67 yards.

HOUSTON — In his postgame news conference, Mike Mularkey wanted no part of addressing the issue that will be on the minds of every Jaguars fan moving forward: Should Chad Henne be the starting quarterback, even if Blaine Gabbert is healthy enough to play? "I'll make that decision next week," Mularkey replied. "After I evaluate the tape, a decision will be made next week." When pressed further about the matter, he calmly said: "Yeah, I always evaluate the tape before I make any rash decisions."
