Despite all the QB moves that have gone down this offseason, Jacksonville Jaguars QB Chad Henne isn’t shying away from his goals for 2013. Despite head coach Gus Bradley and General Manager David Caldwell showing public support for Henne’s competition, Blaine Gabbert, Henne believes that he can compete for a starting job in the upcoming season. In a story published Thursday in the Florida Times-Union, Henne said that he had a great opportunity in Jacksonville. “Sure, this is a great opportunity,” Henne said. ”You’ve seen all the moves with quarterbacks going all over the league and this is one of those opportunities. There’s a starting job open and let the best man win. I’m just going to give it my all. ”I’m still young. I’m only 27 years old in my sixth season. Aaron Rodgers started when he was five years in. I’m only a year behind right now. I’m a competitor. I’m going to compete.” In February, Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell showed that he isn’t ready to give up on Blaine Gabbert. He said that Gabbert was only in his second year, and that they planned to build around him in his third year. Questions have arisen, though, about Gabbert’s improvement, and if he really is the long term solution for the team. There have even been talks about using the second overall pick in this years draft to select West Virginia QB Geno Smith. What do you think? Does Chad Henne have a chance in Jacksonville? Is Blaine Gabbert’s time just about up? Is Geno Smith a possibility with the second overall pick?
