    Jaguars to release David Garrard



    Being reported by Jay Glazer on Twitter:

    Luke McKown will start opener.

    Maybe that's our backup QB?

    Wow. I know he is not a top tier Qb, but I always thought he was a solid middle of the pack starter capable of winning it all if on an elite team.

    I would be glad to have him as the backup if the price is right, but I could see him going to SF or Seattle and starting.

    I agree. he's definitely better than Smith or Jackson. Of course, if they are all in for the Luck Sweepstakes, they'll pass
    After 5 years of early exits, the journey is finally complete.

    I think that division is weak enough that going from Smith or Jackson to Garrard would be enough to go from worst to first. Just getting to the playoffs is worth it IMO even if you are a major longshot to win it all from there, because occasionally those hit.

    I'd gladly welcome him here as our back up.

    Can't BELIEVE the Jags would flat out cut him like that.


    I'd love to see him come here, but I could see him getting some interest to start in Seattle, San Fran, and maybe even Cinci.

    Yeah, this is a real head scratcher. I've always liked Gerrard as a QB. He could definitely start for a couple teams at this point. Would be a premium backup.

    I totally agree, but if we could offer him a 1 year contract he may want to come here to win a Super Bowl?

    I can see why those options would be attractive for him, but if I'm him I would look at signing a one-year contract with the Ravens.

    It's a proven organization, top talent, it will give him time to learn the system, and he won't be thrown into a losing situation where his value might drop.

    Look how much Kolb ended up getting with very little playing time.

    Garrard is also 30 or 31 years old. Kolb is what...25? 26?


    Garrard won't see another big pay day, so he might as well try and do what Leftwich did and land with a team that has a legit shot to win a SB.

    Kolb isn't 33 with Crohn's disease and a bad back. What Gararrd needs is starts. Sitting on the bench isn't going to get him that final payday that he's probably looking for.

    Please... The guy has a weird wind-up and delivery.. Almost looks like Jim Palmer trying to throw a football against the Dodgers in the '66 World Series.. He'd get killed here.

    He's better than Tyrod Taylor, Daunte Culpepper, Trent Edwards, etc.

    He's the best vet QB that will be available.

    I think that they'd be ok with Tyrod as the back up, but if they want a vet guy then Garrard should be on the phone with them right now. He's got a lot of gametime experience. He's got a good arm (albeit a weird throwing motion), and he's pretty mobile.

    I doubt he'd get "killed" here.

    He's got experience, better than Smith or Jackson. He's also a straight-up, class act.

    Hee hee. As I recall, Palmer did pretty well against the Dodgers - maybe this is a GOOD comparison?
