    Who is Gabbert younger than?

    Blaine is 23.

    Barkley, Geno, Glennon, Dysert, Nassib, Manuel are all 22.

    Wilson is 23 and a month older...

    GABBERT IS CRAP whether he's 20 or 28, he still sucks.
    Blaine just turned 23 and those guys are all 23 before the draft, Klein as well, except Smith and Barkley. None of them has close to the tools that Gabbert has. Including Smith and Barkley. So you use a top five pick on a guy who is the same age, less talented, and has no pro experience? Won't happen.

    Besides Alpha and hotdalton...who is delusional about Gabbert? In no way shape or form jag fans saying Gabbert is the next big thing besides those two.

    Exactly. Trade that pick to the Jags for a real star.

    Gabbert's tools?

    Barkley can command, understand, and run a pro offense already and better than Gabbert. He's got a higher football IQ and he can read defenses like Manning.

    Geno is more accurate and has a better arm. And 5x the athlete.

    Pro experience is a moot point. Gabbert blows even with a year to learn the system. He can't grasp it and doesn't have the tools to run it.

    Rookies like RG3, Luck, Dalton, Newton, Tannehill and Wilson have all shown a great deal of promise and success. Then there are guys like Kaep and Ponder are successful while Gabbert has been left in the dust.

    Open your eyes dude.

    Yeah, it takes a New England based expert on the Jacksonville Jaguar's quarterback (via Missouri) to clear up all the misconceptions. All those people who actually watch him play should be ashamed of themselves. We all know Barkley has a better "command of pro offenses" because we've had exactly how many years to watch him perform as a pro? It's been so many now I've lost count. And certainly 215 pound Geno Smith with his 4.86 timed 40 has to be a "much better athlete" than Gabbert running it in 4.6 at 240 pounds. Because....well....just because, I guess. Those athletic tests the league spends multi millions of dollars running every year can be so deceiving. Take a bet with you, TOAD. Gabbert has better numbers than Smith in every Combine test he takes this year. From 40 yard dash to Wonderlic.

    Barkley runs a pro offense at USC.

    Gabbert ran the spread at Mizzou and ran a variation of it last year at Jax.

    And who's New England based?

    Well, I know there's a lot of funny stuff going on at USC, but I don't quite think they're full fledged "pros" quite yet. We'll see how Barkley does in a pro offense when he plays as a pro. Whether that be next season or several years down the line. Gabbert has no problem in pro style setup. He was the top rated PRO STYLE prospect coming out of high school at the position, committed to a pro style system at Nebraska, and only went to Mizzou after the coach who recruited him was fired. Then he kept his dropback skills intact with his personal coach who lived just outside Columbus. The problem in Jacksonville isn't that Gabbert hasn't learned the offense, it's that the receivers haven't. Mike Mularkey came out and said that a couple of times earlier this season. Gabbert is throwing to a spot in the offense and the receivers aren't there.

    I watch my Jags every week and although he might not be spot on everything, he sure as hell is damn close. Gabbert hasn't shown much, it's the truth. I know you like him a lot, but he just hasn't been what we expected.

    The problem is the expectations. At #10 overall, Gabbert was taken at the average position of first round quarterbacks over the past 20 years or so. His performance so far in his first two seasons has been way above average for a first round drafted quarterback. If you look just at the guys who were drafted higher than him over the past four years, Luck, Griffin, Tannehill, Newton, Locker, Bradford, Stafford, Sanchez, all taken between #1 and #8 overall, he is mid point statistically right now of that group. He is younger than all of them except Griffin (by a couple months), and has probably had the least to work with of any of them so far in his career.

    Pro Football Weekly and NFL.com both have a numberical rating system they assign prospects declaring for the draft. Pretty sure at this point that Gabbert's grades from both outlets in 2011 will be higher than Smith, Barkley, or any other QB prospect gets this year.

    The draft was 2 years ago, draft position means jack now. He isn't playing well and we need someone else...that's a fact.

    Well, if that's the case then most of the others mentioned in that list are in the same boat. If he's doing about the same, on average, as a bunch of guys playing the same position who are older, were drafted higher, and earn more money, what does that say about your "expectations"? Also, what does it say about the chances of a guy still in college coming in and doing better?

    Where have we ranked in the passing game with him at qb? What has he done to compare to any of the ones that was mentioned? What is our record with him at QB?

    I can go on and on and on. Bring up how he's younger than most guys all you want, he hasn't done jack in his first 2 years in the league. You should be starting to show you can lead a team if your a franchise quarterback and he hasn't done that.

    Be done man. He isn't the answer. Mularkey seems to have lost faith in him even. Gabbert was planning on coming back a few weeks ago in the game. Henne played ok, and what happened? Gabbert went to questionable to return, than doubtful, than out. Where's he at now? The IR.
