"JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP)—David Garrard
(notes) lost his starting job the same way he got it: Just days before the season opener and in stunning fashion.
The Jacksonville Jaguars
released Garrard on Tuesday, making a "pure football decision" that will save the franchise $9 million in 2011." - Quoted from Yahoo Sports
To some Garrard is considered a Second Rate Quarterback, but theres always a possibility that he can be a teams diamond in the rough, therefore the question has to be asked: Can Garrard Be a Asset to the Oakland Raiders
if and only IF, the Jason Campbell
/Terrell Pryor Experiment Does not work.
For Those Who Dont Know Garrard is a 4th round (10th pick) by the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2002 and has been in the league longer than Campbell and Boller by a marigin of 1-3 years. Personally i believe Garrard may be a better QB Stat Wise than Jason Campbell but what separates Campbell from Garrard is that we the fans know already that he is a true leader worthy of being a offensive captian, that he has proven throughout the lockout and offseason.
With Terrell Pryor, he has alot of potential in him,and maybe Garrard can help Pryor blossom into a future Franchise QB. However the same can be said with Campbell and Boller, both with good amount of starting experience and the veteran quality this team needs.
But as of right now the QB position is still one position our beloved raiders still needs to work on, and we always seem to have our hearts in the right place but our minds elsewhere we all know how the "he who shall not be named" experiement went for the past few years, and since then we have been very delicate with who we get as our QB, but once again there always those like me who have to ask these questions?
Can David Garrard be the Raiders Diamond in the Rough?
