This weekend, the Houston Texans nearly dropped a game to one of the worst teams in the NFL. It was an offensive shootout with little defense to speak of from either team, and the Texans emerged from overtime with the victory. The other story line that came from the Texans near-miss was the possible end of the Blaine Gabbert era in Jacksonville. After leaving the game early with an injury to his throwing arm, backup quarterback Chad Henne entered the game and threw for over 300 yards and four touchdowns. Henne's spectacular performance may have ended Gabbert's hopes of keeping his job beyond 2012. Young quarterbacks are difficult to evaluate, especially when those players are installed in poor organizations. Cam Newton, Jake Locker, Christian Ponder, Brandon Weeden and Ryan Tannehill are all facing difficulties in transitioning to the pro level. Cam Newton looked nothing short of amazing in his rookie year, but this season, he's shown little leadership, and the Pan...

Chad Henne could be the Jaguars’ starter heading into 2013

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey made it clear that if quarterback Chad Henne plays well during the final six games of the regular season, he’ll likely be their starting heading into next season. Mularkey says if Henne plays well over final 6 games, he will be starter going into next season. #Jaguars — Mark Long (@APMarkLong) November 21, 2012 It doesn’t look...

Blaine Gabberts season comes to an end

The Jacksonville Jaguars have placed quarterback Blaine Gabbert on season ending IR.  Gabbert left Sunday’s game in the first quarter with what was stated as an elbow contusion. Gabbert’s replacement, Chad Henne, provided a spark for the Jaguars who eventually fell to the Houston Texans 43-37 in overtime and fell to 1-9 for the season.  Henne’s performance may have sealed...

The Jacksonville Jaguars have placed quarterback Blaine Gabbert and receiver Laurent Robinson on injured reserve, ending their season. Gabbert hurt his right forearm in Sunday's loss at Houston. Chad Henne replaced him and threw for 354 yards and four touchdowns. Gabbert also has a torn labrum in his left shoulder that needs surgery. The Jaguars (1-9) figured it would be better...

Week 12 Pass Defense: Hanging with Chad

No more bye weeks!  This is great news for everyone whose team isn’t riddled with injuries.  QBs seem to be dropping like flies with concussions and other assortments of injuries, but for some teams (Jacksonville, I’m looking at you), that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Seriously, if you predicted Chad Henne could come into a game against The Texans and throw 4 TDs for 350...

RotoWire NFL No. 2 Quarterbacks

The bye weeks finally ended, but at quarterback, matchups are still key for two-QB leagues. There are no major injuries outside of a few concussed quarterbacks who could return soon, and there are plenty of lower-tier passers performing admirably enough to warrant use. For those players, recent trends are more important than their body of work, so rolling the dice on a hot Chad Henne...

Jacksonville Jaguars: Week 12 NFL Power Rankings (#32)

Last week: 32 (+0) Record: 1-9 It’s still neck and neck for them and the Chiefs. I don’t know if it really matters. They both suck. I think it will take one team winning to show any separation between them and I don’t see that happening. Gabbert has been put on IR with elbow and forearm problems, but it really just seems like a convenient way for Mike Mularkey to get Chad Henne...

Kansas City Chiefs: Week 12 NFL Power Rankings (#31)

Last week: 31 (+0) Record: 1-9 I used to think the Chiefs were better than the Jaguars, but I don’t really think there’s any difference between the two now that Brady Quinn is going to be the Chiefs’ starting quarterback; in fact, the Jaguars might even be better if Chad Henne can establish himself as clearly better than Gabbert (he had a great game last week, but he’s known...
