In news that we know isn't knew, the Jacksonville Jaguars would still prefer that veteran quarterback Chad Henne start all 16 games for the 2014 season and Blake Bortles to sit. Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley joined 1010XL on Jaguars Today with Mike Dempsey and John Oehser and said as much, again.

Shockingly, this is a topic that really hasn't sparked a ton of debate among Jaguars fans and local media, but then again training camp has not officially started yet, either.
The Jaguars took Bortles with the No. 3 overall pick and immediately stated that they were not going to force him into the starting lineup and ideally would like him to sit and improve on some things such as footwork and mechanics. It's also something the team echoed prior to the NFL Draft.
Decisions can change, but once the regular season starts and wins and losses pile up, injuries occur you make your decisions differently. It's certainly possible, if not likely, that Bortles plays some in the 2014 season, but as of right now the plan is still for him to sit.
The same as it has been.
