Jacksonville Jaguars Daily: Quarterback not the only problem on offense

NFL: Carolina Panthers at Jacksonville Jaguars Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Quarterback position not the only problem on Jacksonville Jaguars’ offense -
The conversation surrounding the Jacksonville Jaguars as the regular season approaches centers around the quarterback position. An “open competition” was placed upon Blake Bortles and Chad Henne through the preseason for the starting job. It is unclear as to how much of an open opportunity it actually was as Bortles has been announced as the starter for the season opener against the Houston Texans.

But while the questions at the quarterback position have been at the forefront, another issue on the Jaguars offense has become increasingly alarming: the offensive line.

53-man roster predictions for the Jacksonville Jaguars -
The Jacksonville Jaguars just finished up Week 3 of their preseason schedule and named Blake Bortles their starter for Week 1 against the Houston Texans. The roster is forming and there probably aren’t that many differences since before preseason began, but let’s take a stab at how the final 53-man team will look for opening day.

Jacksonville Jaguars sending mixed signals about Blake Bortles -
Over the past nine days, Blake Bortles has become Michael Scott, and the Jaguars are Jan.

The team that made Bortles the third overall pick in the 2014 draft has recently developed a bizarre ambivalence toward him. An ugly underthrow in a nationally-televised game against the Buccaneers, Bortles was benched for Chad Henne. And then Henne got the start for the all-important (supposedly) third preseason game. And now Bortles will get the start in Week One.
