The Blaine Gabbert experience was exactly what we all expected.
It started with a nice game, but then ended with a thud as Gabbert tried and failed to bring the Arizona Cardinals back from a deficit that he didn’t put the team in.
In those waining moments, the Gabbert haters saw what they expected, which was a bad performance and off the target throws.
However, much of that was because Gabbert had been doing a nice job and his wide receivers had dropped several easy catches that then made the Gabbert needing to make plays have to happen.
Here is what Twitter thought of the first game of the Blaine Gabbert experience with the Arizona Cardinals.
Tom Savage and Blaine Gabbert both have quarterback ratings over 128 thus far, just as everyone figured.— Kyle Odegard (@Kyle_Odegard) November 19, 2017

Hey Bruce Arians, Blaine Gabbert is your QBOTF— Thankful Cam (@Camorooni) November 19, 2017
Blaine Gabbert is 14th different QB to throw a TD pass to @LarryFitzgerald— Mark Dalton (@CardsMarkD) November 19, 2017
Larry Fitzgerald is low-key one of best wide receivers I've ever seen play the game.— Maurice Moton (@MoeMoton) November 19, 2017
Carson Palmer, Drew Stanton or Blaine Gabbert. It doesn't matter. He's scoring touchdowns.#Cardinals
Blaine Gabbert dealing today...it appears Mizzou's good karma has spread to the pros. Saints should give Chase Daniel a few possessions.— Garrett Gordon (@GarrettGordon) November 19, 2017
Overheard in my living room: "Hey! Blaine Gabbert's not doing too bad."— Lindsay Jones (@bylindsayhjones) November 19, 2017
Gabbert might be smarter than the rest of the team. He's putting the ball in Fitz's hands before the 4th quarter— BS1128 (@bsp1128) November 19, 2017
Gabbert throws a good ball then bails a clean pocket— Bruce Leroy (@TheMarcJohn) November 19, 2017
I foolishly started Drew Brees over Blaine Gabbert. I'm a fool.— Justin Woodruff (@WoodJustRuff) November 19, 2017
Look, its one game, but this is why I was saying we need to start Gabbert over Stanton. We KNOW what Stanton is. We need to see if we have anything in Gabbert going into 2018. So far, not too shabby.— The Fermi Paradox (@AZ_ArmchairGM) November 19, 2017
Watching Savage vs. Gabbert is like watching toothless guys in a rib-eating contest— Jeff Risdon (@JeffRisdon) November 19, 2017
Blaine Gabbert has looked really good today.— Matt Murphy (@MattMurph24) November 19, 2017
Gabbert is so much better than Stanton— valve (@valvarti) November 19, 2017

Blaine Gabbert has ... thrown a few dimes?— Eric Edholm (@Eric_Edholm) November 19, 2017
BLAINE.......... GABBERT.......... LET'S GO.— Brendon Schwartze (@Schwartzeb27) November 19, 2017
Seahawks would've lost at Arizona if Gabbert started. Yes, Bruce Arians is an idiot.— Tucker Blankinship (@TuckerBlanc) November 19, 2017
AMAZING what can happen from giving Gabbert A DAMN CHANCE— Cassidy Hammel (@cassidyhammel) November 19, 2017
QB of the future Blaine Gabbert— Coximus Maximus (@Coximus2) November 19, 2017
There's 1:53 left in the first half. Plenty of time for another Texans' turnover and another Cardinals TD pass by Gabbert.— John McClain (@McClain_on_NFL) November 19, 2017
Blaine Gabbert is the future! Rookie Ricky Seals-Jones playing well too! #AZvsHOU— Andy Kwong (@akwong31) November 19, 2017
Gabbert sure does love throwing to tight ends. You could tell from the preseason with all his throws to Momah. Now, Gresham and Seals-Jones.— Tyler (@TylerASU13) November 19, 2017
Gabbert short of the sticks on 3rd and long... Drink— Seth (@SCoxFB) November 19, 2017
Blaine Gabbert to Ricky Seals-Jones is today’s hot combo in the NFL.— Dan Barr (@DanCBarr) November 19, 2017
That was when Gabbert had thrown his third touchdown of the day... Then things went a little south.
We were winning by 3, now we are losing my 10. SMH— Michelle_Nicole89 (@MichelleMeiners) November 19, 2017
Brown & Nelson need to work on catching the damn ball.
It wasn’t all on Gabbert though and anyone that tells you different wasn’t watching, however, when the game was in the balance, Gabbert did throw a back breaking interception.
Of course Gabbert gets intercepted straight after this tweet #AZvsHOU— Tom Reynolds (@TwitchierFish) November 19, 2017
Two late interceptions taking some shine off a solid performance from Blaine Gabbert today.— Kyle Odegard (@Kyle_Odegard) November 19, 2017
What did you think of Gabbert’s performance?
