09:49 PM ET 03.24 | Talking about his return to UCLA for a full load of history classes, his upcoming rehabilitation from surgery for a broken left foot and his future in Jacksonville, Maurice Jones-Drew wanted to address another topic. ???OK, I???m going to hit this target,??? he said. The target was Blaine Gabbert???s critics. A Yahoo! Sports article earlier this month quoted a former Jaguars assistant referring to the quarterback as ???Blame Gabbert,??? citing an unwillingness to be accountable. ???For that coach to come out and say that, that???s not what a man should do,??? Jones-Drew said. ???You have a problem, tell it to his face. You don???t air somebody out after you???re gone. That happens too much in this league. ???It just [ticks] me off that people talk about the guy like that. I get upset about it because people think it???s easy to learn [a new playbook], let alone learn what everybody is doing around you.???

I liked watching Gabbert play in college, thought he needed at least one more year to develop before turning pro.

Gabbert has talent...just needs some good coaches to bring it out.

Having MJD stand up door you is the kiss of death. Gabbert's career is over.

Unfortunately, as MJD is all of 3 foot nothing, no one realized he was standing up for Gabbert and the bashing continued.
