Blake Bortles threw the interception equivalent of the butt fumble yesterday


NFL: Houston Texans at Jacksonville Jaguars Logan Bowles-USA TODAY Sports

I have watched the entire series of The Office (minus season 8 which was horrific) about 5 times. One of my favorite things about it is that it seems like I pick up something new that I find hilarious every time I watch it.

The same can be said about this play from the Jaguars loss to the Texans yesterday:

The first thing that pops out is how terrible the throw is. 97% of you who are reading this right now could make that throw 85% of the time. An NFL quarterback should be able to make it 100% of the time. That pretty much tells you everything you need to know about Bortles.

The second time I watched it I noticed how bad the mechanics are from Bortles on this play. It looks like he is trying to throw a curve ball- maybe he should join Tim Tebow in the Arizona Fall League.

The third time I noticed just how bad the play is. Even if Bortles is able to get the ball to T.J. Yeldon the play goes for about an 8 yard loss. What were they trying to accomplish there??

I hope Bortles stays in our division forever!
