Jaguars voted for team captains, David Garrard not one of them

The Jacksonville Jaguars announced their team captains today, of which teams vote on. The team decided to have six captains this season, two for each phase of the football game. The Jaguars offensive team captains are runningback Maurice Jones-Drew and tight end Marcedes Lewis. On the defensive side of the ball, the team captains are Daryl Smith and Aaron Kampman. On special teams, the two captains are Montell Owens and Kassim Osgood.

Now, I don't want to make something out of nothing, but it's rather odd to me that quarterback David Garrard was not voted a team captain. To my knowledge, he's been voted a team captain in the previous seasons but was not this season. I can't think of many teams with entrenched veteran quarterbacks that do not have the quarterback as a team captain. Typically it's just teams with rookies, or teams who traditionally do not have quarterbacks as captains, like the Baltimore Ravens.

It just struck me as rather odd.
