Jaguars haven't changed stance -- Chad Henne still starting QB


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2014) The Jaguars confirmed again Wednesday veteran Chad Henne will remain the team's starting quarterback heading into Week 3 against the Colts. It comes two days after coach Gus Bradley said during his Monday press conference Henne will remain the starter.

The calls for rookie quarterback and first-round pick Blake Bortles have been loud following a 0-2 start for Jacksonville.


Jaguars not looking to change QB


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2014) Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne will remain the team's starter for Week 3 against the Colts, head coach Gus Bradley announced during his press conference Monday.

Henne had a rough go of it in a 41-10 loss to Washington Sunday, but received little help from his offensive line as he was sacked 10 times in the game. At least for the time being, it looks like Blake Bortles is not expected to get a chance for the 0-2 Jaguars. 


Chad Henne sacked 10 times in losing effort


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne took a beating in Sunday's 41-10 loss in Washington in Week 2.

Henne was sacked 10 times in the game, as the offensive line consistently collapsed around him. He ended up completed 14 of 28 passes for 193 yards in the game, including one touchdown, a 63-yard strike to Marcedes Lewis. He was also intercepted once, and added 17 yards on three carries in the loss.

Henne has passed for 459 yards while completing 53.5 percent of his passes, with three touchdowns and one interception. The Jaguars next game is set for Sunday against the Colts in Week 3. 


Chad Henne starts hot before stinking


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/7/2014) It might not be long until Blake Bortles takes over at quarterback in Jacksonville. Chad Henne had an amazing first half at Philadelphia, firing two touchdowns to rookie Allen Hurns off of turnovers, before becoming undone in the second half in the Jaguars' Week 1 loss to the Eagles. 

After completing 12 of 17 passes for 167 yards along with those touchdowns, Henne connected on 12 of 26 passes for 99 yards and a fumble in the second half, leading the Jaguars to no second-half points. He added 8 yards on a rush. 

The Jaguars play at the Redskins in Week 2 before hosting the Colts in Week 3. Henne might not be long for the job if he can't rebound quickly. 


Chad Henne weak Fantasy play in Philadelphia


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) If Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne broke the huddle with an explosive supporting cast Sunday in Philadelphia, perhaps he would be a viable Fantasy option. But he's not talented enough to raise the level of a weak receiving corps. And if Chad Henne is your starting Fantasy quarterback, it's time to initiate trade talks.

The Eagles finished last in the NFL a season ago by yielding 298.8 passing yards per game. But the addition of veteran safety Malcolm Jenkins and cornerback Nolan Carroll should improve the secondary.

Henne does not boast the weapons to warrant Fantasy consideration. Featured receiver Cecil Shorts took a step back late last year and rookie Marqise Lee, who was plagued by injury and poor performances in the preseason, is the other starter.

Henne, who finished last season with just 3,241 yards and just 13 touchdowns, could be looking over his shoulder at Blake Bortles, who performed well enough in the exhibition games to warrant consideration for the starting job. His team did not upgrade the talent around him enough in the offseason to make Henne any more than a Fantasy afterthought in 2014.

It's no wonder he's unranked in the list of the top 24 quarterbacks in Week 1 by CBSSports.com senior Fantasy writers Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard.


Chad Henne named Week 1 starter


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley is sticking to his plan, at least for now. He has named Chad Henne the starting quarterback for Week 1 at Philadelphia, according to the Florida Times-Union. The announcement came following Friday's preseason game against Detroit.

Henne led his team to only one scoring drive (field goal), and took a backseat to rookie Blake Bortles late in the first half. The rookie worked with the first unit and orchestrated a scoring drive (field goal) before half time.

Bortles made an impressive throw to Allen Hurns for a 28-yard gain. He followed it up with a 30-yard completion to veteran tight end Marcedes Lewis. After halftime, he hooked up with Hurns for a 13-yard touchdown, his first touchdown of the preseason.

Bortles compiled 158 yards through the air while completing 10 of 16 passes. He added a touchdown and no interceptions, registering a 116.1 quarterback rating. He has 435 passing yards through his first three preseason games.

Henne completed 9 of 14 pass attempts for 70 yards. He was sacked twice and finished with a 76.5 passer rating. Through three preseason games, Henne has passed for 230 yards.

Chad Henne to get slightly more work than Blake Bortles


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2014) Jaguars coach Gus Bradley anticipates quarterback Chad Henne playing "a quarter and a half" Friday at Detroit and rookie Blake Bortles taking over for another quarter, reports the Florida Times-Union. Despite Bortles' impressive preseason, the Jaguars plan to start Henne during the regular season.

Chad Henne looks sharp in second preseason game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/14/2014) Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne led his team to scores in his first three drives, including a touchdown to Marqise Lee on the third drive Thursday night against Chicago.

Henne found the rookie receiver out of USC on a playaction pass for a 6-yard strike late in the first quarter. Henne played four series with the rest of the first-team offense and completed 12 of 17 pass attempts for 130 yards, with a touchdown and no interceptions.

Chad Henne still the starter; Blake Bortles first-team reps unlikely this week


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2014) Though Blake Bortles impressed in the team's preseason debut against the Buccaneers Friday, Jaguars coach Gus Bradley reiterated to the media that Chad Henne is still the team's starting quarterback.

Bortles could get some reps with the first-team offense at some point before the season, but Bradley also noted that he does not expect that to happen this week. Bortles outgained Henne 117 to 30 yards Friday on just four more attempts, but Henne is still expected to open the season as the starter/ 


Chad Henne does little in first preseason action


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2014) Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne got the start but did not make much of an impact in Friday's preseason opener against the Buccaneers.

Henne coughed up the ball twice, but managed to recover each fumble during his four series with the first-team offense. He completed 4 of 7 passes for 30 yards and had two carries for no gain. He was replaced by rookie Blake Bortles with 9:51 to play in the second quarter.

Chad Henne given green light to audible


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne said he has the green light from offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch to audible as much as he wants to, reports the Florida Times-Union.

"He’s pretty much given us all the tools. Whatever we see out there, if we have to throw it every down because they’re giving so many guys at the line of scrimmage, we’ll throw it," Henne said.

Henne said he has a better grasp of the offense in Year 2.

"Jedd has been putting a lot in our shoulders, more audibles, but it’s really just taking ownership of it. If I see something out there and I check out of something, he gets excited. It’s exciting for us because it shows him that we’re understanding the defense, understanding the offense and getting in the best plays that will work," Henne said.


Jags GM lays out quarterback plans


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/25/2014) Jaguars general manager David Caldwell wants quarterback Chad Henne to start all 16 games this season, reports the team's official website.

The report says Caldwell expects rookie quarterback Blake Bortles to be the top backup. When asked if Bortles could start, Caldwell said, "For us it’s really going to be our team's maturity and Blake's maturity."


Chad Henne starting, Blake Bortles learning


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/26/2014) The Jaguars continue to say that Chad Henne, and not No. 3 overall pick Blake Bortles, will start at quarterback this season, reports NFL.com.

Henne started 13 games last season and threw for 3,241 yards, completing 61 percent of his passes, with 13 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.

"I think it's been out there that our beliefs and our feelings is that we feel so strongly about Chad and he's going in, I think the team has really rallied around that," Bradley said. "Now, it has provided an atmosphere for Blake to really go out there and ask a lot of questions and gain a lot of information from all the quarterbacks that are in.

So how is Bortles doing with the transition from college to the NFL?

"He's doing a really good job, he's having more good days than days that maybe he's struggling, like all rookies have," Bradley saidd. "We're very excited about his development."


Blake Bortles would get shot if Chad Henne gets hurt


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/24/2014) The Jaguars plan to ease in rookie quarterback Blake Bortles, but he would be next in line if Chad Henne got hurt, reports the Florida Times-Union.

The report says it's "a guarantee" Bortles would be next in line if Henne was injured even though the Jaguars don't want to rush Bortles into action. Ricky Stanzi would be the only other quarterback candidate if Henne got hurt.


Despite Jags' claims, Blake Bortles could be Week 1 starter


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2014) Although the Jaguars say Chad Henne will open 2014 as the starting quarterback, CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora believes No. 3 overall pick Blake Bortles will establish himself "as the best quarterback on their roster in the preseason," prompting the team to start him Week 1.

"We're obviously a long way off, but Henne primarily has been a backup for a long time, and if the third overall pick looks anything like what you hope, even early on, then I could see Henne holding the clipboard again when real games start," La Canfora wrote.


Chad Henne still expected to start over Blake Bortles


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/2014) Even though the Jaguars drafted rookie quarterback Blake Bortles at No. 3 overall in the NFL Draft, the team remains committed to starting Chad Henne this season, reports the Florida Times-Union.

And that's OK with Bortles.

"To be able to sit for a year or two years, I'll be able to absorb, to learn, to be a sponge, to soak everything up," he said. "Chad has been there and doing it for years. It's something I look forward to."


Jaguars surprise with Blake Bortles at No. 3


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Chad Henne is expected to open the season as the starter, but Bortles can compete for the job in training camp. He is clearly the quarterback of the future for the Jaguars, and Bortles was the first quarterback taken in the 2014 NFL Draft ahead of Johnny Manziel and Teddy Bridgewater.


Even if Jags draft QB, Chad Henne still starter


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
