It was fleeting, however there was a second within the not-so-distant previous wherein Blake Bortles and the Jacksonville Jaguars have been thought-about “good.” Going into this 12 months, hopes have been particularly excessive as a result of Bortles’ wrist now not harm.

After the primary month of the season, the Jags have been Three-1. Then they obtained carved up so totally and so simply by Kansas Metropolis in Week 5 that your entire franchise fell aside and now Bortles, a former No. Three general choose, the previous face of the franchise, is saying he’s simply one other man round right here, man.

From ESPN:

Sunday was Bortles’ first motion since Nov. 25, when he accomplished 12-of-23 passes for 127 yards in a 24-21 loss at Buffalo. That was the fourth time in a six-game stretch wherein he threw for fewer than 150 yards, and Marrone benched him and fired offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett the next day.

Bortles ended up finishing 5-of-6 passes for 39 yards and working 4 instances for 25 yards in what might be the final time he’ll play for the Jaguars.

“I don’t know. I simply work right here,” Bortles stated. “I signed up for 3 years so till these three years are up or till they let me go, I’ll play once they want me.”

So that is most likely it for Blake Bortles as a Jacksonville Jaguar and probably as a beginning quarterback.

Bortles had some massive video games this 12 months. He threw for 376 yards and 4 touchdowns in a Week 2 win over the Patriots, had 388 yards in a win over the Jets and 320 in a loss to the Colts. He had 430 yards in that loss to the Chiefs, however it got here together with 4 interceptions.

And that’s just about the Bortles story. Have a look at his “related gamers” record on Professional Soccer Reference, and also you get a reasonably good image. Derek Carr, Kirk Cousins, Josh Freeman, Marcus Mariota …

It’s too dangerous, actually. Bortles has been dumped on a lot throughout his profession, I hoped to see him put all of it collectively in 12 months 5. However as 12 months 5 winds down, it seems Bortles simply works there, and never for lengthy.
