Peace to David Garrard

So on Tuesday the Jaguars released quarterback David Garrard in favor of...Luke McCown?

From Yahoo Sports:
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP)—David Garrard lost his starting job the same way he got it: Just days before the season opener and in stunning fashion.

The Jacksonville Jaguars released Garrard on Tuesday, making a “pure football decision” that will save the franchise $9 million in 2011.

“He just couldn’t get it going,” said Del Rio, who added that the team didn’t try to trade Garrard. “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.”

Del Rio turned the starting job over to Luke McCown(notes), who outplayed Garrard and rookie Blaine Gabbert(notes) in the preseason. Playing mostly with and against second- and third-teamers, McCown completed 12 of 18 passes for 133 yards, with two touchdowns, no interceptions and no sacks.

The savior of Jacksonville?

Are people surprised about this move? Oh whatup under-achieving quarterback. This kid is better than you in camp? We'll take that 9 mil we owe you and tell you to go fuck yourself. I mean Del Rio has a job on the line as well. You gotta do something. Even if that means putting in a dude with 9 career TD's, 10 career INT's and two fumbles. Sounds like a keeper to me. Either way Jacksonville will suck so who gives a fuck.
