JACKSONVILLE, Fla.--A new GM, a new coach, plenty of new players, but  a similar result Friday as the Jaguars lost their preseason opener to the Miami Dolphins 27-3.

Round one of the quarterback competition went to Chad Henne who was 8 of 11 for 87 yards while Blaine Gabbert was 5 of 10 for just 19 yards with an interception. Neither quarterback was able to generate a touchdown for the offense. "We had one good drive and we were a little inconsistent early. We got some different looks from them and that's good for all the guys. You can go back tomorrow to watch the film and really evaluate what we're doing and what works," said Jags qb  Gabbert. 

It should be noted the team's three best playmakers, Maurice Jones-Drew, Justin Blackmon, and Cecil Shorts III didn't play. 

On the defensive side of the football Sen'derrick Marks had a sack on the Dolphins first drive. "We had some good plays and started to get in a flow offensively. It's all about the ball and we have to take care of it. The guys know that. I thought both sides really competed and that's what we're looking for as a staff," said Jaguars Coach Gus Bradley. 

The Jaguars (0-1) this preseason are on the road next week to take on the Jets.

nothing new here. all 3 quarterback's should be proud of scoring 3 point's in a game. lol. the home town announcer's praised the defense, but they gave up 27 point's. they need to tell it like it is. the defense was bad. the offense was nowhere to be found. lol
