Jaguars Yank Blaine Gabbert For Luke McCown

The Jacksonville Jaguars apparently have had enough of former Missouri quarterback Blaine Gabbert as their starter — at least in today’s game against the Houston Texans. Currently down 20-10, the Jags have replaced Gabbert with Luke McCown in a season that has been abysmal for the Jags at the position.

After trading up to get Gabbert with the No. 10 picks in the NFL Draft with the Washington Redkins, the Jaguars released David Garrard — the incumbent from the previous several seasons. Instead, the team went with McCown in game one before switching to Gabbert for every game since then. That is, until now when Gabbert has gone 13 of 29 for 136 yards and one interception.
