    Default David Garrard

    So I been thinking about this guy for some time now. I saw him play in several games and was always impressed by his play- illusive and smart with the ball. He actually signed a 6 yr -60 million dollar deal with the Jags at one time so he must have impressed some people. He had a QB rating in the first yr of his new contract of 102.2 (2007). This is when the Jags seemed to have things put together. Despite massive injuries to their starting offensive line, and slow deterioration over the next 3 yrs Garrard still put up a average QB rating of 89.5. This guy is a very good veteran.

    So now the question!

    What if he is off the chart good?

    Personally I think this is a very good possibility. I like David Garrard and I think he is a great addition to this team. What do you guys think?

    If David Gerrard is off the charts good, then my smile will be off the charts wide.

    Does he create QB controversy should he post some big numbers?

    I would love to see Tanny sit for a yr or two then turn him loose.

    The year off to repair his herniated disc, has him fresh and ready to play. I am excited!!

    We are stacked at QB. I can't remember a time since Maybe Marino and Mitchell that we have been this stacked.

    Gerrard's 35 years old. If the plan is to let RT17 sit and develop, I don't see where the QB controversy is.

    His performance could make Moore trade bait. I could see the Vikings potentially jumping on that.

    i still believe that all the talk about him will be for nothing if moore wins the job, i doubt garrard makes the team then
    My job right now is to push him," said Lazor, who was Nick Foles' QBs coach last year. "Iíve got to make it very hard for him out here on the practice field. I heard a rumor that some people reported that weíve made it hard for him on the field. Thatís on purpose. Thatís how you build a quarterback, and heís coming."

    The thing for me is I know Garrard can play. Seen it with my own 2 eyes. Moore, I like a lot but I am still not convinced he can get it done for a whole season. It is very possible the next 2 or 3 years are in Garrard's hands unless 17 develops quicker then they are currently reporting.

    True, very true. Or there is always the trade to New England scenario and he becomes the next Dan Marino and New England trades him to Buffalo for 41 first round draft picks

    If the Dolphins have the problem of a QB being "off the chart good" then in fact we have no problem at all.

    I personally think Garrard wins the starting job this year then Tannehill will be the starter in 2013. I think Matt Moore will be the #2 guy and won't be re-signed in 2013. Tannehill will show flashes in camp but needs to spend his rookie year learning IMO.

    This was a very under-rated signing, been saying that since the day it happened. A lot of fans were just so butt-hurt about the Manning/Flynn fiasco that they saw Garrard as another "settle for less" move.

    What if he is off the chart good ? Well than enjoy it, for a year. He'll most likely sign elsewhere next year in hopes of starting.

    I have to disagree off with your odds of him being "off the charts good". Very good chance of that? I don't see it. Good chance he's better than most of us fans expected? That I would be willing to place good odds on.

    There was a reason the Jags had him inked to a big contract at one point in time, this is true. There is also a reason they let him walk and cut him days before the 2011 season began. The upside is limited, at least it was in their opinion and the opinion of many others around the league. So I'd temper your "off the charts" expectations.

    That being said, you raise a good point. I really think Garrard has a chance to play the Chad Pennington role of 2008 if he can come in and put a solid season together with a turnover ratio on the right side of 1, 25+ TDs and 3500 + yards passing. It's not out of the realm of possibility. I've warmed up to the signing since we now know Garrard wasn't Ireland's final answer to the position.
