Jaguars QB Blaine Gabbert Earns Player Of The Week

The NFL doesn't give out awards for preseason, but Sports Illustrated's Peter King sure does! This week, he gave Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert his award for Offensive Player of the Week, and there was much rejoicing. Find what he wrote about Yo Gabbert Gabbert after the jump (if you haven't already clicked on that link up there).

Twenty-four hours after venting to Yahoo!'s Mike Silver about the critics who (justifiably) ripped his 2011 play ("They can't do my job; there are 31 other guys that can do my job, and that's it''), Gabbert continued his ascending preseason at New Orleans with a 13-of-16 night, for 112 yards and two touchdown passes. Gabbert looks night and day from last year, when Curtis (House) Painter had a better passer rating.
