Mayock: The right move
The Jags abruptly cut their starting quarterback two weeks ago so first-round pick Blaine Gabbert could play quickly and avoid any potential issues with a quarterback controversy or divided locker room. It was obvious to anyone remotely paying attention that this day was coming fast.
Luke McCown barely played in the preseason and the franchise had very little invested in him. And McCown is not very good right now, which the Jags already knew. So now, with three total scores through two games (including a field goal), the Jaguars made a switch that everyone knew was inevitable after they moved up to draft Gabbert with the 10th overall pick and then cut David Garrard right before the season.
