i find this extremely interesting
Justin Blackmon, formerly of Oklahoma State and currently the Jacksonville Jaguar's #1 wideout, has been suspended 4 games by the NFL for substance abuse. This may be good news for Denard's chances at significant early playing time, although fellow Jaguar draftee Ace Sanders from South Carolina (FML) probably benefits most. The Jags had earlier this offseason cut their #2 WR last season (Laurent Robinson), so although D-Rob is listed as a RB, depth concerns may expedite a move to WR. http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/blog/eye-on-football/22170728/report-justin-blackmon-suspended-four-games-by-nfl
In other M-related Jaguars news, Chad Henne and Blaine Gabbert are in an open competition for the starting QB job. I'm sure both of them would prefer Blackmon didn't get suspended. http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/players/playerpage/517291/chad-henne
Boy, oh boy. Where has my old friend RoboHenne gone? Don't let your wife do this to you, men. Sure as hell don't let her post it to Facebook.
Chad Henne was inserted as the QB for the second week in a row following a Blaine Gabbart injury. He has already been named the starter for next week. His stat line against the Texans was pretty great:
I always thought Henne had a chance to be a good starter in the right situation. Gabbart hasn't exactly entrenched himself as the starter so its possible Henne could win the job outright at some point. At the very least he should be able to put himself in a conversation for a starting job somewhere in the league.
Gabbert went down in the first half against the Texans and Henne came in is playing really well.
10/13, 225 yrds , 2TD, no interceptions
Also, the Lions currently have the lead. They might win their first division game this week if we're lucky.
Per Tania Ganguli's Twitter, Chad Henne has signed with the Jags for two years. Adam Schefter confirms. Not the greatest team in the world, but it does give him an awesome chance to start thanks to a very questionable Blaine Gabbert.
As Schefter reported earlier, the Jags also signed WR Laurent Robinson (Dallas) for five years/$32.5 million. That at least gives him someone decent to throw to downfield. It'll be sad not to see Jake Long pass protecting for Henne anymore, but maybe he can be reunited with a former WR teammate like Manningham or Braylon.
