The Jacksonville Jaguars have been in the news a lot lately, but it hasn’t really been about their playoff win against the Buffalo Bills, it’s been people taking shots at Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles. Now, I’m not going to pretend like I’m above reproach in that regard, but lately the shots people are sending towards Bortles seem to range from plain stupidity to just downright hate.
The latest comes from Bleacher Report’s Chris Simms, former NFL quarterback, who ranked Bortles as the 70th best current quarterback in the NFL. Yes, I mean current as of like... January 9th.
Potential Hall of Fame offensive lineman and former Jaguars player Tony Boselli apparently heard Simms discussing it on the Dan Le Batard show and began angrily texting “Stugotz”. It eventually led to Boselli calling in during the break and unloading on Simms, including telling him the coolest thing he’s ever done is nearly bleed out on the football field.
