Blake Bortles Has Officially Been Demoted

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick warms up before an NFL football game against the Seattle Seahawks in Santa Clara Calif. Talent or not Kaepernick won't be setting foot on any NFL field

His replacement is Henne, a career backup who has started 53 games over his eight-year National Football League career, posting an 18-35 record.

Why choose Bortles? ¯\_ (ツ) _/¯ That's as good a reason as any. I knew I going to get an opportunity to play on Thursday night and that's where I was going to have a chance to show what I've been doing and what I can do.

Jacksonville Jaguars coach Doug Marrone needs more time before naming his starting quarterback for the season opener. Bortles was also expected to face the media early afternoon Saturday. Will one quarterback play the first quarter with the starters and one play the second? "When everything gets to going, pretty sure coach will have everyone ready to go".

Check out the touchdown and the interception below! He said he won't let the week of adversity impact his outlook moving forward. I've always believed competition brings out the best in people. But he still has a ways to go to prove he's a long-term solution at the all-important position.

Marrone was asked how much the Jaguars' struggles on the offensive line during preseason influenced the decision. He went onto say regarding the quarterback battle that it "is right up there for grabs, and either person can take it". "All that stuff does get factored into the decision".

Despite the announcement, Bortles still appears to be on the shortest of leashes in Jacksonville.

"I always watch how players respond", Marrone said. "That's not going to change".

"I think offensively we didn't help ourselves". That dates to Week 4 of his rookie season. Given that the third preseason game is considered a dress rehearsal for the regular season, that sets Henne up to be Jacksonville's starter in Week 1, and beyond. Henne - after a poor showing in Thursday's start - will return to the second quarterback spot as the Jaguars look for Bortles to produce like the promising quarterback they drafted him to be.

Henne played five first-half series with the starters Thursday, completing eight of 14 passes for 73 yards and no touchdowns with no interceptions. You always want to see that.

The outcome ends a quarterback competition that lasted a little more than a week.

Marrone said Bortles impressed him with his communication on the sideline against the Panthers.
