Marrone won't commit to Jaguars starting QB

(TSX / STATS) -- JACKSONVILLE -- Two days before the Jacksonville Jaguars play their all-important third preseason game against the Carolina Panthers Thursday, no one knows who the team's starting quarterback will be. Nobody except head coach Doug Marrone and he's not telling anyone, not even the two contenders - Blake Bortles and Chad Henne.

"I feel good about one of them," Marrone said after Monday's practice. "I have a lot of good reasoning for it so I'm going to see where it goes. I have a plan in my mind. I haven't talked to the quarterbacks about that plan yet. I'm just going to see how the practices go. We've got another big day tomorrow, a good day. Both of them are doing fine. Like I said, I feel like I have a very good plan for myself and then I'll make the quarterbacks aware of it when we get closer to the game."

The Jaguars have had four practices since last Thursday's game against Tampa Bay when Bortles was a pedestrian-like 8-of-13 for 65 yards with no points in four possessions. Henne followed and wasn't a lot better, connecting on 6-of-10 for 44 yards. Yet both quarterbacks had two incompletions each that have stirred much of the quarterback controversy. Bortles twice missed a wide-open Allen Robinson downfield, once throwing well behind Robinson and the second one a couple yards short of an open Robinson.
