Hingle-USA TODAY SportsThe Jacksonville Jaguars have a quarterback problem — a quarterbacks room that consists of Blake Bortles, Cody Kessler, Tanner Lee, and Alex McGough.In my opinion, McGough should be the only quarterback still in that room in September.All that aside, the Jaguars will be in the market for some fresh blood at the quarterback position and free agency and the NFL Draft will be two avenues they take a swing (or two) at it this year — and ESPN contributor KC Joyner believes that if Teddy Bridgewater is let go by the New Orleans Saints, his home this year will be in Jacksonville.Several ESPN writers and contributors were asked to fill in the blank:If free agent QB Teddy Bridgewater isn’t in New Orleans in Week 1, he’ll be in ______.Most said with the Miami Dolphins or in Washington Cheap Josh Allen Jersey , but Joyner was the lone person who said Jacksonville.While I think Dwayne Haskins is the long term answer at the position, a mid-tier guy would be preferable to pair with him in his rookie season. Tyrod Taylor, Josh McCown, and Ryan Fitzpatrick all make a lot of sense. Teddy? I’m not so sure. After all, this team had several chances to sign Teddy and didn’t bite. Why would they do so now?What do you think? Is Teddy a realistic option as a guy to bring in and pair with a rookie? Or will it be some other veteran quarterback? Let us know in the comments below!Can we chill out on the Blake Bortles thing? Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles didn’t have a very good game against the Minnesota Vikings on Saturday afternoon. I think that’s fair to say, despite his stat line. When he was up against the Vikings first team defense, the offense struggled to move the football outside of a few screen passes and a nice third-down scramble by Bortles to put the team on the goal line.He even threw a God awful pick that he shouldn’t be throwing anymore, but like... can we just chill out a little bit?It’s probably because it was the only game on in the middle of the day, but the knee-jerk reaction of Bortles play on Saturday was beyond absurd. It started as soon as he hit Harrison Smith in the chest with an interception, where Bortles didn’t even see the safety trailing across the middle in man coverage, and just reverberated throughout the day on social media.As I mentioned, Bortles didn’t have a great game but it was far from make a panic trade immediately bad. This time last season Bortles was getting benched to give Chad Henne a legitimate shot at the starting job. Bortles ended the day going 12 for 120 20 with 159 passing yards and the interception Josh Allen Jacksonville Jaguars Jerseys , which even looking at straight up box score, isn’t that bad! Watching the game, it looked rough until the screens started moving, but it wasn’t even close to bad enough to make me the slightest bit concerned. I am saying that!The game in itself was really just an encapsulation of what Bortles is and likely always will be. Frustrating with some boneheaded mistakes, but never quits and is always trying to win. It’s a big reason why, despite all his short comings, he’s so easy to root for. He’s the same guy he’s always going to be and right now, that’s fine.Players don’t change that much, but I think he’s improved enough to where you don’t need to go into every game worrying about how he’s going to tank it for you or make it harder than it should be. Is he still going to have those games? Yes, absolutely, but they should be more like every fifth game now, not every other game like in the past. Saturday against the Vikings wasn’t even one of those games Jacksonville Jaguars Jerseys Stitched , it was just a quarterback having a tough time against an elite defense.I’m not sure what else people expected from him out there, but he gave about exactly what I thought he would.The reactions however, jumped the shark pretty quickly. It started up about how the Jaguars would be crazy not to at least call the New York Jets about Teddy Bridgewater and see what it would take to get him. At this point, it would be crazy to do that.Look, I’m a big Teddy Bridgewater fan. That’s no secret. He’s who I wanted the Jaguars to draft in 2015 2014 and I thought they made a mistake picking Bortles over him. Considering the injury he’s coming back from and the length of time he’s been out of football, Bridgewater’s preseason has been impressive and if/when he’s fully healthy he’s probably a much better passer than Bortles is.All that being said, can we just chill out a bit? Cody Kessler looks like more than an adequate backup right now and unless you’d be trading for Bridgewater to snap-start right away it makes little sense and the matter of fact assertion that he’d automatically make a team who made it to the brink of the Super Bowl in 2017, make the Super Bowl in 2018 is uh... crazy. The overreaction to Bortles game on Saturday has been way over the top.Chill out.At this point, he’s earned getting the chance to change your mind in the 2018 regular season.
