You can knock Garrard if you like...



but I think he deserves more credit than he gets and heres why. The last time he played behind an offensive line that wasn't decimated by injuries or part of a rebuilding which included 2 rookie tackles starting, he participated in a shootout with one of the best qb's of all time(Brady), in a second round playoff game on the road.  If one thing Garrard has shown, it's the ability to lead the team on long, time consuming drives. I agree the red zone problems are a concern, but if the o line plays well and MJD stays healthy, I think these problems will desist. In 2007, I remember several long, time consuming drives by Garrard and the Jags that usually came at a vital time in the game. In fact, and I don't know for sure, but I think they might have set the NFL record with a 20 play touchdown drive against tthe Steelers. Those long drives were one of the reasons the Jags played good defense in 2007, they were well rested lots of time. I do believe that Garrard is hesitant to throw to his 1st receiver unless he's wide open and checks down too much, but with enough time, it doesn't matter as much. As well as McCown has played this pre-season, excluding last night maybe, to think he can lead this team better than Garrard is a mistake.
