JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - They won't get Super Bowl consideration after a scrimmage, but there is a lot of hope among fans after what they saw from the 2012 edition of the Jacksnville Jaguars Friday night.
An estimated 15,000 people watched Blaine Gabbert look sharp and efficient and they also saw Rashad Jennings look like the real deal with the football in his hands.
Maurice Jones-Drew and Justin Blackmon continued their holdouts from camp, but their absence hasn't set back the growth of Gabbert and new head coach Mike Mularkey's offense.
Jennings accounted for 57 of 70 yards on the first team's second possession that resulted in touchdown pass from Gabbert to tight end Zach Miller.
Gabbert was very efficient in the red zone later in the scrimmage session. The Jags continue to have bad drops from players trying to catch the ball, but overall it was a good outing.
The Jags defense was missing six potential starters including Paul Posluszny and Daryl Smith.
Punter Bryan Anger wowed the crowd with a couple of good punts. There was one major collision between linebacker Kyle Bosworth and fullback Will Ta'ufo'ou. Both players helmets were knocked off their heads.
