I cover the Jaguars for ESPN's NFL Nation. Usually the shortest person in the pressbox.

Jacksonville Jaguars

espn.go.com — JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jacksonville Jaguars coach Gus Bradley obviously doesn't want rookie quarterback Blake Bortles gambling every time he throws the ball. He doesn't want Bortles being overly careful and debating over and over in his head whether to make a throw, either. Bradley wants Bortles to walk the gray area in between those two extremes.

Aaron Colvin eager for long-awaited debut

espn.go.com — JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- At some point on Sunday, Aaron Colvin will begin his professional football career. He's not sure when he's going to get on the field against the Indianapolis Colts. It could come in the first quarter. It could be in the second half.

Jaguars' future is 'All About That Blake'

espn.go.com — JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The success of the Jacksonville Jaguars over the next several seasons largely depends on the development of rookie quarterback Blake Bortles. If Bortles cleans up his fundamentals, limits his mistakes, and adjusts to the speed of the game, the Jaguars could be a playoff team rather quickly.

Jaguars vs. Colts Preview

espn.go.com — When: 1 p.m. Sunday. Where: Lucas Oil Stadium, Indianapolis. TV: CBS INDIANAPOLIS -- What better way to get back on track than facing a team that has struggled all season? The Indianapolis Colts, losers of two of their last three games, have an opportunity to rebound from an embarrassing 22-point loss at home to the New England Patriots last weekend when the face the Jacksonville Jaguars (1-9).

@Alex4409 It's definitely hard to balance for young QB. If he doesn't push through it he won't progress any further. Some never do.

Nothing better than playing Madden for the first time in a year and beating the 16-year-old. Old man has still got it.

@Ivo_Solis Too many rookies playing key roles, too. It's like college football. If you're playing a lot of true frosh you're prob not good.

@Ivo_Solis They've got better talent. This roster still needs a lot of work. Lot of 1st, 2nd year guys that still don't know how to play.

@Ivo_Solis Have to see how Bortles develops in offseason. He made big jump from OTAs to training camp. If he improves, Jags should be OK

Nov 24, 2014

@Ivo_Solis Bills have no QB. Texans don't know if Mallett is their QB. Tannehill is just a guy. Jags may be ahead of them all with Bortles.
