Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone has announced that Nick Foles will be the team's starting quarterback moving forward. Spoke to both of them.

The Jaguars (4-5) have a bye week before then.

"I think Gardner's a competitor, I think what he's done, he's done a great job", Marrone said.

Foles was injured while throwing a 35-yard touchdown pass to DJ Chark on the second series of the team's season opener. "I feel a whole lot different about him now than I did prior to him playing, in a positive way".

It was entertaining although it lasted, but "Minshew Mania" has formally occur to an conclude. His first couple of starts showed potential, but Foles, right now, gives the Jaguars the best possible chance to finish the season strong. "I really believe that". Soon after all, the front business office gave Foles a huge deal worth $88 million this past offseason.
