QB Newton, WR Samuel to see first game action tonight

Neither quarterback was able to convince Marrone that his performance was solid enough to earn the starting job for the season opener against the Houston Texans on September 10. In five first-half series, Henne went 8 of 14 for 73 yards. The Panthers are still without Cam Newton, as Derek Anderson led the way in the losing effort, completing seven of 12 passes for 88 yards and one interception.

You could make the argument that Bortles outplayed Henne against Carolina, though he played with Jacksonville's first-stringers late into the game against the Panthers' second- and third-teams.

The Jaguars recently announced that Chad Henne will be the starting quarterback for their third preseason game against the Carolina Panthers. What happens after that is unclear, but losing your job to a journeyman is never a good thing.

The quarterback competition is officially on in Jacksonville.

Bortles has a bit of experience with interceptions, so he knows how this works. "Whatever you want to call it, I'm still trying to evaluate who the best person is at that position".

During practices, Henne and Bortles split reps with the No. 1 offense and there's a chance it will resume that way when the Jaguars return to the practice today. "So you have two options and I think you pick one and you go". After another shaky outing last week where he missed several wide open receivers, Marrone has stated that the quarterback job is up for grabs. "I think everything is on the table". This gives him the worst winning percentage of any quarterback taken in the top three in the common draft era (since 1967) with at least 40 starts. That stats back up the fact that Bortles is the more mobile quarterback and could help to extend plays with his legs. Bortles has started every Jaguars regular-season game since Week 4 of his 2014 rookie season.

"I'm going to go play as hard as I can". There are some other quarterbacks around the league or in free agency that the Jaguars could look into acquiring, but so far no initial inquiries have been made public.
