Offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter thinks Garrard will have big 2010

The Florida Times-Union reports that Jaguars offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter is expecting QB David Garrard to play better in 2010 and that the criticism of Garrard this offseason is unfair. “You guys have beat the David thing to death,” Koetter said. “I think that’s been well-documented. Dave says it himself. Dave has to play better, and then I say every time I talk to the media, we have to play better around Dave.”

Koetter thinks the offense will be upgraded this year. To start with, he feels the line will do a better job of protecting Garrard than it did last year. “Last year, those two rookie tackles [Eugene Monroe and Eben Britton] were hanging on just to learn the vocabulary, just to learn what they’re doing,” Koetter said. “Now we have two of the most athletic tackles in the league, so in the offseason, we’ve studied different ways we could use those tackles in space, tackle pulling plays, tackle screen plays. I think you will see some different wrinkles to take advantage of what those two guys can do athletically.”

Koetter also said Garrard has more depth at WR with Mike Sims-Walker, Mike Thomas, Jarett Dillard and Troy Williamson. He’s been working with his receivers a lot this offseason. “I think you will find that most of the top offenses, the quarterbacks and the key receivers get a chance to work together,” Koetter said.
