Here's your open discussion thread to talk about anything and everything dealing with the Jacksonville Jaguars and Atlanta Falcons preseason finale.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are hosting the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night at EverBank Field in the preseason finale for both teams. Week 4 of the preseason is little more than a tune up for the starters, but for the reserves it may be the last time they ever suit up for the Jaguars.

Head coach Gus Bradley has already said quarterback Chad Henne will be the starter in the regular season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles. That means that even if rookie Blake Bortles has another superb game, it doesn't appear likely he'll start next week.

However, there's no indications that Bortles won't have a great game. Against backups in the first two preseason games, Bortles played like a veteran, and last week against the Detroit Lions starters he played the part of a franchise quarterback.

5 questions with The Falcoholic

Live blog:

9:17 PM: Hey, the Jaguars may have lost, but Blake Bortles looked really, really good. (Again.) Goodnight, folks!

8:49 PM: Jaxson DeVille cares not for your 10-point leads in the preseason finale.

8:45 PM: With the coaching staff not giving rookie Storm Johnson any reps, Jordan Todman is turning in a great performance.

8:27 PM: Another Falcons score! /drinks

8:19 PM: And the Jaguars were in the red zone, had momentum, and Mike Brewster had to go and Mike Brewster all over the drive. We could've gotten to within one score, and now Kasey Redfern misses from 42 yards out.

8:12 PM: Ace Sanders' night is done after an excellent punt return... and it seems after some post-play fighting with Falcons punter Matt Bosher!

7:47 PM: EverBank Field halftime shows > Your Stadium's halftime shows

7:28 PM: #butts

7:12 PM: Yup. This is Week 4 of the preseason alright.

7:08 PM: And the Falcons respond quickly too.

6:45 PM: So Blake Bortles responded quickly, but was pulled after this play. Jaguars tie the game 7-7.

6:36 PM: The Falcons get on the board first, with a score from rookie running back Devonta Freeman out of FSU.

6:08 PM: 6pm kickoffs are not good for fans. (cc: NFL)

4:37 PM: Blake Bortles is starting tonight. Hey boo.

3:29 PM: Listen. Then listen again. Then listen one last time.

2:38 PM: This video can even get you pumped for a preseason finale.

2:19 PM: Sad to see that rookie Craig Loston out of LSU won't be in the game. He was a long shot to make the roster as an undrafted free agent and it doesn't look like he'll have a fourth game to prove himself. Here's our predicted 53-man roster for the regular season opener.

1:15 PM: The game may kick off at 6pm, but football will be on your television, radio, and computer screen starting at 3pm sharp.

11:40 AM: We're a little more than six hours to game time. Just enough time to read the SB Nation 2014 NFL Preview in its entirety!

10:52 AM: The view never gets old.

10:33 AM: Riding a motorcycle to the game? Of course you are! The Jaguars made this handy map just for you.

8:00 AM: Familiarize yourself with this 75-man roster, especially the names at the end of each position list. Those are the guys who will be getting the most playing time, and who might not be back next week after final cuts.
