Blaine Gabbert Thinks He Can Throw A Football Over Mountains

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert has been in the news quite a bit lately, but most of that has been about his play at the quarterback position and a potential challenge from Chad Henne. Gabbert met the media on Tuesday after another day of OTA practices, and decided to let loose a little bit.

Gabbert was asked what he thought about media questioning his ability to throw a football, to which he quipped "I'd like to challenge them to a quarterback competition. Like Uncle Rico." He was then asked if he thought he could throw a football over mountains, once again referencing a character from Napolean Dynamite. Uncle Rico was the main character's uncle, who couldn't get past his glory years of playing high school quarterback, often saying, "I bet I could throw a football over them mountains."

"I could come close I think," Gabbert responded. "Maybe not though, who knows. The air would have to be really thin in Colorado or somewhere."
