We are just a day away from opening of the NFL season, and quarterback David Garrard is currently without a job.  The Jacksonville Jaguars decided to cut the inconsistent QB, a move that will save their franchise $9 million.  Head coach Jack Del Rio said that Garrard just couldn’t get things going through the preseason.

I had met with him a couple of weeks ago and brought him in and said, Hey, listen, you’re my guy. I need you to get it going. He was given every opportunity. He was somewhat apologetic that he wasn’t able to deliver.

During the preseason Garrard missed the opener, and in the final 3 games he only made 50% of his passes and threw no TD’s.  Jag’s owner Wayne Weaver made it clear last year if Jacksonville didn’t make the playoffs this year that Del Rio’s job would be done.  Obviously an inconsistent QB wouldn’t be able to get things done for Del Rio, so he cut ties.

Instead, Luke McCown will get the starting job after out performing both Garrard and rookie QB Blaine Gabbert in the preseason.  Jacksonville opens things up against the Tennessee Titans this Sunday.
