Blaine Gabbert Not Letting Those That Slam Him Get to Him

Blaine Gabbert is comfortable enough with himself to handle all the criticism. So go ahead, pile it on, talk about his pocket presence and his errant passes. Ask about his confidence and his receivers. Blame him for the losses and the coaching change. Jacksonville’s laid-back rookie quarterback doesn’t really seem to care.

“Whatever,” he said Saturday. “I know we take the brunt of the criticism. That’s just the position we play, and that’s how it should be. We’re the face of this team, and the ball goes through us on every play. We kind of shape it. I know things haven’t gone well this year and I haven’t played how I wanted to, but there have been a lot of positive things that have gone on. …Everybody’s going to be criticized for something, whether you deserve it or you don’t. It’s the way the world works, I guess. It’s whatever. I’m comfortable in my own skin. I can handle it.”
