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.

Gabbert looks like he is still afraid of his own shadow. Could we please find a Quarterback. Maybe we could get Brett Favre, John Elway, or even Joe Montana to come out of retirement. At this point even one of them would be an upgrade!

This is the year the Jaguars go for #1 draft pick.

I want to be a Jaguar fan, I really do, but they make it so very hard. It's time for the owner to invest in talent on the field (can you say quarterback!), not logos, uniforms, soccer teams and scoreboards! I can't wait to have to eat my words and root for a team that's competitive.

the fan's are paying top dollar to watch a bunch of goof ball's. you should call the jag office and complain. they are high priced player's making money off the fan's. it is a shame. yes they might be the jag's but you are paying high dollar to see them lose. I respect the fan's who go to the game's but the player's are millionaire's and you are not.have a good time at the game. i just feel sorry for you fan's.

I seen nothing but a bunch of 'kids' dancing around between plays, smiling and fooling around, not being serious at all. With only a couple of players that got into the game that was NOT afraid of getting hurt. It was like watching a bunch of ballerina's dancing around in tutu's that were afraid of breaking a nail....so disappointing.

No matter how many ways you change the spots, they are still the Jaguars.
