The Garrard Addiction

This week has lead me, as well as most Jacksonville fans, to question Garrard and his future with the team etc. Now in the beginning of the season I said I would give him (and Del Rio) one more chance, hell its a new season so why not a new chance right? Well I have realized that Garrard has become our Rex Grossman or J.P Lossman.

Now if you are going to start quoting the difference in stats etc stop reading now and go read something from Vicky boy at Jaguars.com. When these aforementioned QBs were on their respected teams I remember thinking "Why don't they just get rid of them and move on and get a real QB," and yet people make excuses for them. Well guess what folks we are doing the same thing make excuses for Garrard, he has had 9 seasons and hasn't really improved.

After I realized this, I started to question why this faith and stubbornness in staying with Garrard? Was it the lack of something better? or was it  whats one more season? Well I have come to the conclusion that we have a Garrard addiction, much like a drug addiction. When Garrard is on and we win, we were on the high and nothing could stop us, then the withdrawal and he loses, and then we take another hit when he wins etc.

The solution for this is that both the team and us fans need to go through detox. The withdrawal symptoms will be bad, but we need to get clean and draft a QB so our future will be better and brighter. Trent Edwards can be our methadone and can help get us through the season and then we can shelf him. This could be a long season but hell who owns methadone may not be that bad.

 

P.S. I am in NO way playing down the seriousness of drug addiction, seriously
