Jaguars coach Gus Bradley has already announced that Chad Henne will be the team's starting quarterback for Jacksonville's regular season opener against Philadelphia. However, we should note that Blake Bortles is doing everything in his power to make Bradley change his mind.
In the Jaguars final preseason game on Thursday, Bortles threw a 57-yard touchdown pass to fellow rookie Marqise Lee.

Bortles was pulled from the game after the touchdown, meaning he finished his night 4 of 6 for 86 yards and a touchdown. Overall, Bortles finished the preseason with 521 yards passing and two touchdowns, along with zero interceptions.
CBSSports.com Senior NFL writer Pete Prisco absolutely thinks the Jaguars should hand the offense over to Bortles.
