Jaguars rookie quarterback tells the media “I’m killing us”

bortlesThis year Blake Bortles has made several mistakes, but nothing that kept the team out of the game.  Well this week Bortles mistakes did in fact kill the team. Bortles had three turnovers including two pick sixes.  Bortles responded to the media after the game admitting he was at fault.

“I’m killing us,” Bortles said after the Dolphins’ 27-13 victory at EverBank Field. “I’ve got to try to eliminate different things and get better.”

“It’s going to happen. I think it’s part of it [learning to be an NFL quarterback],” Bortles said. “Obviously you don’t want to do it but it’s going to happen and there’s no reason to think about it or dwell on it or do anything. You can’t do anything. It’s over with. It’s done. So try to move on and not let it happen again.”

The Jaguars made the right switch, but this team is young. When they start clicking watch out they could surprise a lot of teams.  Bortles has good players around him, but they just need to put it all together.
