Dirk Koettler Says Gabbert a “Half Step Slower” in Scrimmage

Jaguars offensive coordinator Dirk Koettler tells Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union that rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert was “half a step slower’ in Saturday’s scrimmage than he has been in practices.

It’s no surprise that Gabbert looks much better without defensive pressure. He completed just 12-of-27 passes for 76 yards and a TD in the scrimmage compared to Luke McCown’s 13-of-18 for 136 yards and a TD. We don’t want to overstate the importance of a scrimmage, but Gabbert has to show major improvement if he’s going to give David Garrard a run for the starting job.
