Blake Bortles to Start Next Week for Jaguars

21 Sep

Blake Bortles is finally getting his chance.

Jacksonville Jaguars coach Gus Bradley has seen enough of Chad Henne. After seeing his 0-2 Jaguars trail 30-0 at the half to the Indianapolis Colts, Bradley made his move benching Henne in favor of 2014 3rd overall pick Blake Bortles.

Bortles played the entire 2nd half completing 14/24 passes for 233 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions. Jacksonville lost the game 44-17. Afterwards, Bradley announced that Bortles will get his first career start next week when the Jaguars take on the Chargers.

The Jaguars had been adamant all training camp and pre-season long that Bortles would ride the bench for the duration of his rookie season.

Clearly, Gus Bradley’s patience ran thin, and Borltes will take over after just 3 games. This just goes to show you that no plan is ever set in stone.
