Inconsistency has been the main theme through the first three days of training camp, especially regarding the two quarterbacks. It’s to be expected with a new offensive system and a multitude of new faces at receiver and tight end.
After a less than stellar practice yesterday marred by multiple fumbles and interceptions, it looked as if Blaine Gabbert came out with redemption on his mind.
In fact both Gabbert and Chad Henne improved from yesterday’s up-and-down performances.
Gabbert did have his obligatory poor drive…
But overall the quarterbacks came away looking much better than they did in day 2.
It only took three days of practice, but it’s almost a certainty that Cecil Shorts III will be the best player on the Jacksonville Jaguars this year. Gabbert and Henne hooked up with Shorts for multiple long touchdowns and all reports say he’s downright uncoverable.
Rookie offensive weapon Denard Robinson is still getting used to his new role, but he flashed some of his potential as a playmaker while showing he needs to work on ball security.
Rookie receiver Ace Sanders continued to flash, today as a punt returner. The Jaguars haven’t had a viable threat returning punts since Reggie Barlow left but Sanders is looking to change that.
