JACKSONVILLE, Fla. Cheap Chicago Bulls Jerseys . -- Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles is getting some much-needed help with his mechanics.Bortles said Monday hes bringing in Adam Dedeaux, an instructor at 3DQB in Los Angeles, to spend two days fine-tuning his throwing motion. Dedeaux and partner Tom House have helped Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Tim Tebow and other NFL quarterbacks in recent years. Bortles has spent time with them, too, but he normally does it during the offseason.Its kind of like anything else: When you struggle at doing what youre supposed to do all the time, I think you try and fix it as quickly as possible rather than let it get worse, so Ill try to take care of that, Bortles said.Bortles has completed 60 percent of his passes this season for 1,904 yards, with 12 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Bortles has struggled with his accuracy, partly because his motion has become elongated. That also has allowed defensive backs to break on passes and linemen to bat down balls.Hes hardly looked like the same guy who ranked second in the NFL with 35 TD passes last season. Bortles said the two-day session will focus on footwork, which should translate to better upper-body mechanics.Ill definitely try to get that fixed up, Bortles said. Hopefully well try to tighten some things up and get back to the way I was throwing the ball the most efficient.The Jaguars (2-5), who play at Kansas City (5-2) on Sunday, fired offensive coordinator Greg Olson two days after the offense failed to score in the first half for the third time in seven games. They promoted quarterbacks coach Nate Hackett to replace Olson.Hackett, who spent two years (2013-14) as Buffalos play-caller, welcomed Dedeauxs help.I want Blake to feel comfortable, Hackett said. If Blake feels comfortable working with him, thats awesome. Its somebody that he really leaned on last year and I knew about all that. ... Blake, if hes got somebody that he trusts and he believes in and it makes him better and it makes him more confident, of course I want him to do that, and I want to support that and Ill be there with him and whatever it takes.Now, if it makes him not feel comfortable, then Im going to be like, `OK, weve got to stop. So I think once again its about Blake. Its about him feeling comfortable, and if we can get that done, then I think its just going to make us better.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap Bulls Jerseys China .
