Jaguars Assistant Jedd Fisch Says QB Competition Will Determine Starting Job
Jacksonville offensive ccordinator Jedd Fisch told CBSSports.com that he hasn't had any time to evaluate the Jaguars roster as he and Bradley had to put the finishing touches of building a coaching staff. But Fisch did make a promise on how he'll approach his quarterback situation.
"I don't know anything about our quarterbacks but I do know we'll have a competition at every position," Fisch said. "One thing Gus and I have always believed in and I know Gus, from being with Coach Carroll for a few years, likes for players to always compete. It's always about competition for us. There's going to be competition everywhere, every day."
That sense of competition in Seattle gave the starting job to Russell Wilson this past season, and the Jaguars are hoping for a similar outcome – someone to step up and lead at quarterback – in 2013. Chad Henne and Blaine Gabbert are expected to be in the mix but in discussing offensive philosophies, Fisch made a compelling case for a running quarterback to be in the mix.
"I feel like there's certainly a place for [the zone-read offense]," Fisch said when asked about that system. "We ran some of it (at Miami), we ran no-huddle and ran the quarterback. As soon as you can run your quarterback, you have to defend another gap and if you have to defend another gap then [the defense has] one less guy. So all those things, there's a place for it. It's just about making decisions on how it fits with your team and how it fits with your personnel and if it's in the best interest of your players."
