The Jacksonville Jaguars grew tired of seeing their starting quarterback make mistakes this past weekend. Although it was a long time coming, it was only a matter of time until the Jaguars sent Blake Bortles to the bench for his poor play this season. As the Jaguars were losing to the Houston Texans, Jags head coach Doug Marrone decided that enough was enough, and they put in Cody Kessler at quarterback.
On Monday afternoon, everybody was curious to see if the benching would be a permanent move. Marrone wouldn’t confirm as he wanted to meet with both quarterback’s on Monday first, before letting the media know. But after his brief meeting with the two quarterback’s went down, the head coach confirms that Bortles will not lose his starting job, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
