As the universally maligned quarterback – for now, at least – of a Jacksonville Jaguars team best known for a playmaking defense and a power running attack, Bortles knows his role is to keep taking hits, on and off the field, and hes not running away from his fate.
When we play bad, Blake Bortles is the worst quarterback on the face of the planet.
Bortles, the fifth-year passer who has been the Jaguars starter since early in his rookie season, won 12 times last season, including a pair of playoff contests, before being edged by the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game.
A week later, Texans defensive end Jadeveon Clowney went a step further after his teams 45-7 loss to Jacksonville, saying of Bortles, He trash.
On Wednesday, Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins felt comfortable taunting Bortles four days before their game.
