Jacksonville Jaguars insist Chad Henne will be starter in week 1


The Jacksonville Jaguars are insisting that Chad Henne is going to be the starter when the season opens. With the selection of Blake Bortles with the 3rd overall selection in the draft, there will be some fans waiting to see their new toy on the field. The anticipation will be killing teams.

If Henne were to falter in any way, expect the blogs and fans to go crazy calling for Bortles to play.

The expectations behind Borltes is going to be big. The team moved to get their quarterback early in the draft and he will have to lead that team to some wins.

The team will need to find him some weapons to work with though. Bortles won’t be able to do it all on his own and that may be a reason why Henne works through the first season as a starter. Henne will get beat up a little bit while they wait to get some playmakers on the roster.
