Jaguars coach Doug Marrone doesn’t know who his starting quarterback will be when the season begins. Which means (duh) that the guys who’ll be catching the passes also don’t know.
After Thursday night’s game, the top two pass-catchers on the team had little to say about the situation.
“Who knows what the decision will be?” receiver Allen Robinson told reporters. “I don’t think there’s a big difference. I mean both of these guys have been here since I’ve been here and they’re pros, so who knows?”
The other Allen was similarly tight-lipped about the situation.
“For the most part, nobody really talks about the quarterback position right now,” receiver Allen Hurns said. “We leave that up to the coaches. As far as everybody else, you just try to come in and control what you can. If it’s a receiver, just make your plays, on the defensive side, they worry about their side. There hasn’t been much talk in the locker room as far as the quarterback position battle.”
It’s hard to believe no one is talking about the quarterback situation. The more likely reality is that the players are under orders to not talk about the quarterback situation, and that they’re complying. For now.
