Jaguars are 'waiting around until they can start Blake Bortles', says Ryan Clark

The Jacksonville Jaguars had their doors blown off by Washington on Sunday, losing 41-10 on the road and veteran safety Ryan Clark says his team shouldn't be impressed with what they did to Jacksonville on Sunday and that the Jaguars are "just waiting around until they can start Blake Bortles".

"In my honest opinion, this is a team that's waiting around until they can get Blake Bortles ready to go," Clark told ESPN's John Keim. "That's how you're supposed to play against a team like that, a team down its No. 1 receiver and missing a very good receiver due to suspension. You're supposed to play well against them. It's not any barometer of how good we can be this season or how good we were [Sunday]."

Prior to the matchup on Sunday, Florida Times-Union writer Ryan O'Halloran tweeted that a Washington player asked him what the deal was with the Jaguars starting veteran Chad Henne instead of Blake Bortles.

The Jaguars offensive line gave up 10 sacks on Sunday and overall weren't able to get much of anything done outside of one touchdown pass to tight end Marcedes Lewis, but it appears the pressure is mounting for Gus Bradley to consider making a change at the quarterback position.
