The Jacksonville Jaguars made a late comeback to beat the New York Giants 32-31 on Friday night. All eyes were on second-year quarterback Blaine Gabbert. Jaguars fans are hoping Gabbert can make significant improvement after a rookie season that included a fair share of failure and disappointment.
In Gabbert's limited playing time on Friday, SB Nation Tampa Bay's editor-in-chief Alfie Crow said the following on Big Cat Country:
Overall, Gabbert had a pretty nice night and showed a lot of what some people wanted to see. In the very first play on offense, Gabbert just missed Marcedes Lewis deep down the field where Gabbert stood in the face of the rush and took a hit as he threw the ball, which likely caused it to sail.
Sure, it would have been great had the pass been completed, but the fact that he got the throw off without "crumbling" was something a lot of people were looking to see. Gabbert then engineered a 13-play, 89 yard touchdown drive.
