David Garrard may be linked to the success of the Jacksonville Jaguars. In fact I believe his performance can determine the record of the Jags.
In '06 when he played decent but not great when stepping in for Leftwich, the Jaguars didn't make the playoffs but didnt have a terrible record none the less.
In '07, when he had a year of only three interceptions, the Jaguars may have had their best season since 1999 and could have had a legitimate shot at winning the Super Bowl if it hadn't been for a Patriots team that only had destiny and the New York Giants to defeat them.
In '08, however, Garrard had a subpar season, and the Jags had a sub par result. In conclusion, Garrard's performance in '09 seems to be directly parallel to the Jaguars' record overall.
Not only is this true, but David has been up and down in training camp. After a so-so start, reports indicate that Garrard has risen to his criticism and was having a very good second half of training camp.
Now which David will come and play under the lights? Time would suggest the second, but the first could also come along as well.
