Jaguars QB Blake Bortles getting roasted for preseason performance
Blake Bortles was getting torched on social media Saturday afternoon for what some viewed as poor play during an exhibition game.
The Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback threw an early interception right to Minnesota Vikings safety Harrison Smith in the second series of the game — when he’d thrown a near-interception the series before.
He also took a sack, when he was dragged down by Vikings defensive end Danielle Hunter.
It was probably the most aggression lacking tackle you’ll ever see.
“Very gently,” is how the commentator described the tackle.
Moments later, Bortles showed why he has been able to maintain a starting position in the NFL, and it has nothing to do with his passing ability.
No good deed goes unpunishhed.
Bortles played the entire first half of the Jag’s last preseaon game and was stopped on third down via sack.
Still, he whooped the Steelers last year... Twice.
