I'd say David Garrard could be that guy. Not our QB, for sure, but a guy to be a placeholder in case Beck fails...
It's just a shame for him we have the injuries on the O line right now. He's not going to get the help from the running game like Rex was getting or the pass protection. Hopefully he can manage .500 ball till T Williams returns and we might have an outside chance at the playoffs.
I suggested this when he was cut, and was lambasted for it. The only problem I see is that Garrard only wants to play where he can start, and for a contender. All those years in ****ty Jacksonville left a sour taste in his mouth I suppose.
Well, I wouldn't have signed him in the offseason... But we've seen Grossman now, and he's not what we wanted. So even if Beck pans out, we have one QB under contract. We may want another that knows the system. But like you said, he may not want to come here. Although I'd rather be on a football team than not on one.
One thing that really didn't set well with me was when Grossman admitted he came to camp a bit out of shape and was carrying some extra weight.
As he should be.
He may not be the answer. But Grossman certainly isn't.
