Unbelievably, David Garrard has been released. Guess the Jags really like Gabbert! Think the Shanahans will go after him? Or are they sold on Rex & Beck?

Please no! He is a gamer, for sure. But his days as a #1 QB in this league are over. He is no better option than either of them in my estimation.

No, if we was 23 instead of 33 maybe.

I think it is familiarity with the offense that Shanny likes in Grosssmen and Beck. Garrard will probably end up in Miami.

Classless move by the Jags. They save 8 million and can now put Blaine Gabbert in at any time and no one will say a peep about it. Meanwhile, Garrard (who from everything I've seen has been a consummate pro during his time there) is royally screwed and has no chance of being a starter elsewhere.

Nice.

Well, if Kerry Collins can come out of semi-retirement, and fill the shoes of a guy like Payton Manning, and start IMMEDIATELY, then there's hope for Garrard. I'm sure a team like the 49ers will at least give him a chance as a backup, making him at least one play away from being a starter. And he may have a great chance at revenge against JAX.

Maybe. But it's still a screw job that's pretty disrespectful of a player who's worked hard and been a company guy.

That would only be the case if there were 35 versions of 'pick him up for the vet minimum'.

Minor league move by a minor league franchise in a minor league town.

Will they still be named the Jaguars when moved to L.A.?

Why would we want to undermine the confidence of our starting QB 4 days before the start of a new season?

No, we're not interested.

I really expected to find this thread somewhere else. Not here.

No offense. :)
Thanks for the contribution!

stuff like this is why I never blame a player for trying to get money while they still have the upper hand. Garrard wasnt a great QB but he was solid and a consumate pro.
This is really the main reason I thought it would be an option; Garrard's professionalism. The dude fits the mold as to what the Shanahans are installing here in terms of a locker room atmosphere to a 'T'. Not to mention, I don't care what your opinions of him are, you have to agree he's more viable than John Beck.

Not knowing the system, at all, I'd have to disagree.

actually I dont think he is more Viable than Beck, I think he has better a better pro resume, but Shannahan would know better if he fits shannys system or not (mcrapp debacle aside). besides tbh I dont want anymore aging vets, and Garrard has been beat up pretty bad.

No interest in Garrard at all. For 2011 we're invested in Rex and/or Beck. If neither proves to be the answer going forward in 2012, the Next Guy needs to be a kid with long-term upside, not another place-holding vet.

Like Gerrard well enough. Think he maxed out on his potential---something rare and admirable. Just don't consider him of any particular benefit to the Redskins at this point.
