BLAINE GABBERT ONLY THINKS OF IMPROVING FOR NEXT SEASON
Fri, 06 Apr 2012 11:28 AM EDT

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert reviewed each and every of his plays from last season, dissecting clips from what he called an “outsider’s point of view.”

As it seemed, his viewpoint was reasonably like everybody else’s. Football odds

“There’s usually a bunch of things you would like to do differently,” Gabbert announced, the 1st day of the team’s offseason program. “You’re intending to make errors across the season. You simply have to attempt to limit those errors.”

Gabbert’s mistakes were researched and investigated like no others in the organization. Football spreads

He got few breaks for being the youngest quarterback in the NFL, for having possibly the league’s worst receiving corps or for getting thrown into the starting role 2 weeks into the regular season.

Instead, he got the brunt of the blame for a 5-11 season that encompassed a lame-duck coaching staff and an unusual quarterback change days before the opener.

Gabbert and the Jaguars have lots of room for improvement.

The Jaguars ranked last in the NFL in total offense in 2011, scoring 14 or less points in 10 games. Gabbert finished 50.8% of his passes for 2,214 yards, with 12 touchdowns and 11 interceptions, and was sacked whopping 40 times.

Perhaps more troubling for the former Missouri standout is that man rookies Cam Newton (Carolina) and Andy Dalton (Cincinnati) looked far better than Gabbert did last season.

But key folk inside Jacksonville’s football complex — owner Shad Khan, director Gene Smith and Coach Mike Mularkey — announce Gabbert is their guy for the moment and for the future.

“I’m pumped up regarding the chance to work with him,” Mularkey said. “I’d like to give him an opportunity with some of the things we’re going to hopefully help him do. We feel like we will be able to help him develop his talents. There’s a lot that he does very well and we just need to get that to be a constant thing.”

The Jaguars believe a full offseason and a revamped receiving corps will work wonders for Gabbert.

The team signed previous Dallas Cowboys receiver Laurent Robinson in free agency and is predicted to add another wideout first in the NFL draft.

After a tumultuous rookie season in which his boss coach was fired and the team was sold, Gabbert left Jacksonville right after the season. He returned early last month and spent the last 3 weeks working out in Pensacola. He stayed in communication with Mularkey, and for good reason.

The Jaguars signed former Miami Dolphins starter Chad Henne to be Gabbert’s backup. The move raised eyebrows, especially when Mularkey claimed Henne would compete for the starting job.

“I trust Gene Smith and Mike Mularkey’s word that if they assert I’m the starting quarterback, then I’m the starting quarterback,” Gabbert said. “That’s good enough for me. That doesn’t mean that I don’t have to go out there and work conscientiously and compete every day. This business is competitive.

You have to accomplish on a daily basis. That’s how it needs to be and that’s how it will be.”
