Pressure on Garrard Hot and Heavy in 2010

There’s no doubt the pressure on QB David Garrard this season for being the starting QB for the Jags. There’s a great feature on Garrard today on Yahoo! Sports from Jason Cole, who says there’s lots of pressure on Garrard from both the team and the fan base in 2010:

Over his first three years, Garrard has gone from helping the Jaguars get to the playoffs with an impressive 18 TD passes compared to 3 interceptions in 2007 to being the focus of ire up and down the shores of the St. John’s River.

Garrard hasn’t necessarily been bad. But at a time when quarterback play is statistically better than ever, he has been ordinary at best.

From owner Wayne Weaver saying that Garrard needed to work harder and be more vocal like Indianapolis Colts counterpart Peyton Manning(notes) to coach Jack Del Rio tepidly endorsing him as the reigning starter to the obvious discontent among the fan base, Garrard is under fire.

“I want to see him get back to the 2007 approach in 2010,” said Jaguars general manager Gene Smith. “He’s asserting himself more … [but] he’s at a stage where he needs to take a step.”
