08:03 AM ET 06.21 | Rookies and vets won't have much true prep time to mesh, which may make all the more awkward the chemistry in Jacksonville. The Jaguars used the 10th overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft to select Missouri quarterback Blaine Gabbert, but Jacksonville's biggest star isn't convinced it was the right decision. Maurice Jones-Drew, who has rushed for over 1,300 yards in back-to-back seasons, said Monday on "NFL Total Access" that the offense needed more time to develop, not a new face of the franchise. "I just feel like what we needed as an offense wasn't a new quarterback, we just needed another year amongst each other because we had a lot of new players come in," Jones-Drew said.

Does he know he's not the GM?

MJD, umm, do you realize David Gerrard is your current quarterback?

June 21, 2011  08:24 AM ET

MJD doesn't want a QB that can pass, he can rack up rushing yards and get big $ when he is a free agent

I refuse to listen to any man with two last names.

Gerrard is a decent quarterback. He would make a great number 2 on the depth chart. However, as a starter, he is only a game manager at best. The Jags knew they needed to do something with that offense because last year was as good as they were going to get.

Hey, way to make the rookie feel welcome when training camp starts. If it ever does.

June 21, 2011  08:41 AM ET

Well MJD you just nixed you chance a ever becoming a coach or a TV analyst. Maybe you should have pointed the finger and suggested what area the team is hurting.

Miller Jenuine Draft.

June 21, 2011  08:46 AM ET

And if the Jags offense under-achieves this year, then it's the QBs fault.

June 21, 2011  08:49 AM ET

Wait until the rookie QB gets HIS new contract. MJD will really moan then. Hehehehehhe.

LOL!!!

They pulled the Favre thread.

June 21, 2011  09:12 AM ET

Don't know if you needed THIS QB, MJD... but you DO need a QB.

Peter King probably told them to stop the madness.

Dang! Was it something I said? I posted a news article about police tasering a cow in New Hampshire. I bet the Bovine Liberation Front came down on them about that.

Lets see... A topic about Terrelle Pryor not commenting, Kraft has work to do to convince the owners to accept the proposed CBA, Maurice disagrees with his GM as to why the Jags would need a QB, and there is a rivalry between the Steelers and Ravens. maybe the Favre thread wasn't so bad after all.

A Terrell Owens thread would bloody well do the trick. I miss those. Really.

Thought you would.

Pelham police say they were justified in using a Taser several times on a cow, despite a complaint from its owner.

Last Saturday, one of Wendy Bordeleau's two cows got loose from her 30-acre farm.

About a dozen people were trying to coral 800-pound Houdini across busy Mammoth Road when police showed up with their tasers.

"They said 'We???re going to tase her, we're going to taser it,' and the group was pleading with them. Everyone was kinda yelling, 'Please don???t taser the cow, it's only going to make it worse," she told WBZ NewsRadio 1030.

Houdini was zapped at least four times.

"It didn???t really affect the cow all that much. It kind of realized that something had hit it and that it was comparable to a bee sting."
