Start Garrard

Nice seeing former ECU quarterback David Garrard getting some starts at Jacksonville -- and winning.

He's lead the Jags to two victories subbing for injured Bryon Leftwich, including today's 37-7 win over the Titans.

"I'm glad I'm not the coach," safety Deon Grant said. "It would be real hard to sit David down right now and real hard not to put Byron back in there. I guess that's the coach's fault for having two good quarterbacks."

And remember, Garrard went 4-1 when Leftwich went out last year with a broken ankle in the last five regular-season games.

Five years ago, when he was drafted by the Jags, Garrard must have thought he was the franchise's quarterback of the future after then-starting QB Mark Brunell, but there was a coaching change, Marshall's Bryon Leftwich was drafted and proclaimed the QB of the future for Jacksonville.

Now, coach Jack Del Rio may have a "quarterback controversy" on his hands with Garrard playing well in his two starts this year.

I hope it works out well for Garrard, who was the best East Carolina quarterback since Jeff Blake.
