Michael Lombardi Calls Gabbert A Pussy

Quote:
I thought ESPN analyst Ron Jaworksi was extremely kind when talking about Jaguars QB Blaine Gabbert's lack of toughness in the pocket last Monday night. Jaws was much more diplomatic than I would have been because I was appalled when watching Gabbert play. Gabbert refuses to stand tall in the pocket and take a hit. If this lack of courage continues, he will lose his teammates, if he hasn't already. Good teams need their quarterback to be the toughest player on the team, not the softest. This is not a rookie problem, it's a toughness issue that Gabbert must quickly correct. Otherwise, who would want to come and coach the Jaguars next season stuck with him at quarterback? They would be doomed for failure. GM Gene Smith believes in Gabbert and he was just rewarded with a new three-year contract, so neither him nor Gabbert are going anywhere anytime soon. Gabbert's lack of toughness as well as Smith's commitment makes this job unattractive to quality candidates unless Gabbert can change in the next four games.
You think he's right?
