Weaver Says Garrard Needs to Work Harder

USA Today says that owner Wayne Weaver says QB David Garrard needs to work harder and get better in 2010:

Jaguars owner Wayne Weaver suggested that quarterback David Garrard needs to work harder. “First of all let me say this, I think that David Garrard can win for us. And I think we have to do some things differently there in terms of preparation, in terms of getting … I tell a story about Peyton Manning when (Indianapolis) drafted Pierre Garcon and Peyton Manning drove three hours twice a week because this kid couldn’t come to the OTAs and train because of his graduating class. He drove three hours twice a week to throw to this kid, to teach him how to be a pro, how to work. We need to do more of that here. David just needs to do more of that with our young receivers. We’ve got some good receivers. You’ve got a (Mike) Sims-Walker, you’ve got a Mike Thomas who’s a playmaker, an ascending player, you’ve got a Jarett Dillard who got hurt this year, you’ve got a Mercedes Lewis. We’ve got some guys that can do it now. We need to work with those guys with David and make sure that they have so much confidence on a couple routes for each one of those players. Depending on down and distance, I have the confidence that player is going to be where he’s supposed to be and I’m going to get the ball and I’m going to get the first down and move the chains. Those are the kinds of accountability things that we’re talking about here.” After two losing seasons, Garrard’s future is up in the air and the team is likely to draft a quarterback in April and groom him for the future.
