Blaine Gabbert named Jacksonville starter

Rookie QB Blaine Gabbert was named the starter for the Jacksonville Jaguars on Wednesday due to the poor performance by QB Luke McCown against the New York Jets. McCown threw four INT, sparking the decision of coach Jack Del Rio to put the 10th overall pick from Missouri at QB. Jacksonville will take on Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers those Sunday in Charlotte. It will be interesting to see if Gabbert performs well in his first start and if Newton can continue his arial assault on NFl defenses.
