Passing Game Woes Not All Garrard’s Fault

From: Pro Football Weekly

Statistics often can be deceiving, such as in the case of QB David Garrard. The Jaguars’ signalcaller already has tossed three interceptions, which equals his season total from 2007, and has just a single passing touchdown. Word out of Jacksonville is that his receivers’ inability to create any kind of separation and his offensive line’s futility in protecting him — the Titans sacked him seven times in Week One — have been the primary culprits in his early-season struggles. Just as importantly, the line’s failure to create lanes for RBs Fred Taylor and Maurice Jones-Drew has rendered defensive fronts fearless in attacking the quarterback. Things might get a bit of a boost with the return of OG Chris Naeole. Naeole, a former starter, was cut in the offseason after sustaining a torn ACL on Nov. 4, 2007, but was re-signed on Wednesday after passing his physical.

    yes yes, Naeole was a surprise waive in the off-season for many of us in Jax, so he should provide a decent boost. then again, i think he’s been ruled out for this weekend.
