Regardless of which player Jacksonville Jaguars coach Doug Marrone chooses to be the team’s starting quarterback, receiver Marqise Lee's approach won’t change. Nor will what he’s asked to do on the field, so he’s not really thinking too much about whether he’ll be catching passes from Blake Bortles or Chad Henne. “My job is to actually just to go out there and just compete, as far as to get open and make the plays I need to make,” Lee said. “As far as making decisions like that, it's not my job. I'm going to sit back and wait. At the end of the day, I believe in all three quarterbacks and having a possibility to come out and doing the things that we need to do in order to get the Jaguars going.” That was pretty much the sentiment throughout the Jaguars locker room after Marrone opened up the competition between Bortles and Henne following last Thursday’s loss to Tampa Bay. Because Bortles and Henne don’t have drastically different styles, nobody’s job changes if one is on the field over the other. “I feel like at the end of the day as long as we’re jelling together, because Chad’s in there, Blake’s in there, I don’t think we pay any mind who’s under center,” right guard A.J. Cann said. “As long as we get the play and make sure we’re on the same page, we’ll be fine. “The only thing you hear different is a voice. You’ve got to get in there, make sure you listen to the play call, listen to the snap count and get off the ball and be ready to play.” The players impacted most by the potential quarterback change are the receivers, especially Allen Robinson. He was the target on three of Bortles’ misfires against Tampa Bay, including one underthrown ball where he was wide open. His frustration with one of Bortles’ errant passes during joint practices with the Bucs early last week was caught on camera.
Jaguars players don’t think QB change would affect them much
