Jaguars QB Blaine Gabbert responds to criticism
His play hasn’t exactly inspired confidence in the future of the team as he was known as “Blame Gabbert,” as the team sunk to a 2-14 record last season.
Gabbert said the criticism isn’t fair and wishes those who say things about him would speak up.
“It pissed me off quite a bit, just because you learn to trust your coaches because you spend so much time with them. That’s starting now. April 2 through whenever your last game is, you’re with them countless hours every day, six or seven days a week,” Gabbert said to Jaguars.com. “You learn to value their opinion, trust it. It’s a close-knit grip. When you have an anonymous source saying something that couldn’t be further from the truth, it pisses me off. Like I always said, ‘Put your name on it.’”
Gabbert torn his labrum in his non-throwing shoulder and was placed on injured reserve last November, after throwing for 1,662 yards with nine touchdowns and six interceptions last season.
