Del Rio Doesn’t Pull Any Punches About Garrard

Jack Del Rio doesn’t seem shy about opening up about his quarterback – David Garrard, as he admits his QB is not an ‘elite QB.’

In a series of candid remarks, Jacksonville Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio made it clear how he feels about quarterback David Garrard. His overriding message during an ESPN television appearance: Garrard is good, certainly not great. When asked if Garrard is a Super Bowl caliber quarterback by host Jim Rome, Del Rio replied: “Well, that’s a good question. I would say a quarterback like David Garrard can be that with a great supporting cast. You know, I don’t know. “When you look at teams that have won multiple championships, I think they’ve had elite quarterbacks Peyton Manning type guys, Joe Montana type guys. The elite quarterback? He’s not that. I do think David’s a good football player.” It’s an honest comment, but it raises the question about how Garrard’s confidence and his teammates’ confidence will be affected in a quarterback whose play has been solid to average for the most part.
