Jack Del Rio, QB David Garrard Both On Notice In 2011?

Head coach Jack Del Rio has been on somewhat unsafe footing for the past two years and this could be a make-or-break campaign and David Garrard, who has been OK but hardly spectacular — especially the past two seasons (38 touchdowns, 25 picks) — is also on notice.

The Jaguars picked up former Bills starter Trent Edwards last season and gave him a chance to assume the starting position from Garrard, which he didn’t. So Jacksonville drafted quarterback Blaine Gabbert 10th overall in 2011, trading up to get him.

At some point, maybe not this season, Gabbert will be the starter and if things start to unravel this fall, Del Rio might accelerate Gabbert’s arrival in an attempt to save his job. Having a rookie with no offseason to learn and grow being the best option for survival is hardly ideal.
