Blake Bortles leaning on Chad Henne

Blake Bortles leaning on Chad Henne

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- When Blake Bortles walked http://www.officialeaglesnflauthentic.com/josh-huff-jersey_c-385.html off the field after throwing his second pick-six against the Miami Dolphins last Sunday, Jacksonville Jaguars offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch turned the sideline chat over to backup Chad Henne. Not because he was too angry to talk to Bortles. He just thought the rookie from Central Florida needed to hear a different voice. "I think there’s some times that you don’t always need to talk to Dad," Fisch said. "Sometimes you talk to big brother and that helps." Bortles has turned the ball over six times in the last two games. He lost one fumble and has thrown five interceptions, two of which were returned for touchdowns. That places him atop the NFL in interceptions (12) and pick-sixes (four). That’s a couple bad weeks, and Bortles is leaning on Henne to help him get through the roughest patch of his career. "Obviously Chad has been in all these situations before," Bortles said Wednesday. "He’s thrown interceptions, he’s thrown touchdowns, he’s done it all. And to hear him and his take on it, I think that’s definitely something that’s good to hear. "I think we’ve got a really good friendship. He tells me he doesn’t sugarcoat anything. He tells me the truth, which is awesome. He tells me if I am right or wrong, what he would have done, and I enjoy that. I ask him to keep telling me those things because I want to know." Henne hasn’t held back, especially when it comes to turnovers. That wouldn’t accomplish anything, and it probably would end up doing more damage. Bortles is a bit of a gunslinger and likes to take chances, and that aspect of his game was something the Jaguars liked. But they’re trying to teach him to be smart about when to take those chances. Take a deep shot on third-and-long from the middle of Earl Wolff Elite Jersey the field. If it’s intercepted, that’s the same as a punt. No harm, no foul. But don’t try to fit a ball into a tight window or throw across the body inside the red zone. That can cost points. Fisch and head coach Gus Bradley have told Bortles that numerous times, but sometimes it’s better to hear it from Henne. "I think it’s the best to have, I guess, your brothers out there or your teammates to come out and say it because I think it means a lot more coming from us, especially from me rather than Jedd or a coach," Henne said. "He respects it and I respect him, so it literally is like a brother. It’s tell him the truth and he tells me the truth." Bradley said after the loss to the Dolphins he didn’t believe Bortles has lost confidence. Bortles admitted to being frustrated and upset for throwing the interceptions, but he said that’s not going to keep him from playing freely. Henne has reinforced that thought to Bortles. "Is he doing too much? I don’t think so, but he wants to win so bad that sometimes he tries to force a couple things in there, but he’s going to the right places with the football," Henne said. "If he was going off track and going off our reads and going different places, we’d have a conversation with that. But he’s going to the right places and some of the defensive players are making good plays on the ball." "As a quarterback and as a rookie quarterback you’ve got to help them come along and grow and understand that he’s going to throw them," Fisch said. “I think if we’re at 12 right now and we can have this second [part of the] year at six, I think we can consider it a win."
