I'd like to see Geno develop and start some games in 2013. With that experience 2014 will be a better year for us if he is what we think he is. Turnover6 only works out if he is trade at the end of the year to help us in the 2014 draft.
As long as it's not the Turnover Machine, the Jets will be better at QB in 2013.
The TM can only get WORSE...and make the Jets WORSE
A heathy Garrard at QB last year and we are a playoff team. He is an average NFL QB, and average play at QB as opposed to having the worst QB play in the entire league would have given us 3 more wins for sure. Team will be better next year with the additions, so Garrard makes sense to me.
Veteran. Character guy. Born in East Orange. Practiced with Miami just last year and was considered the favorite to win the starting job but opted to have a minor surgery on his knee.
Year before that he opted for a surgery on a herniated disc.
In 2010 had a QB rating of 91 and was elected a Pro Bowl alternate.
The Jets should just throw another rookie QB with maturity issues into the firestorm of New York. :huh:
Coach Philbin named Garrard his starting QB during training camp. THEN he had injury and Tannehill was selected as his replacement
Far from washed up
and by miles, the best quarterback on the Jet roster
in order of quality that list is
5 Girly Headband
Hopefully number 5 on the list will be released in less than a month so he can stop having press conferences and distracting the real quarterbacks from their job
Then I have to say you are going a little overboard with the Sanchez thing. You're sounding alarmingly similar to guys like Magnus. I get that your angry that he let us down. He embarrassed us with the spineless, pathetic way he crumbled, but the arguments that he was never put in a position to succeed are still true. In fact with a decent QB coach, and OC I'd wager he'll look very good as long as things go well. I wouldn't have chosen the path, but I'm kind of glad now that his character was revealed, so we don't have to waste more time on him. I don't want this child to lead our team, but I'm still hoping he looks good in preseason, and maybe in some mop up work so we can get a pick for him.
If Garrard starts any games for the Jets this year it is a bad thing for the growth of this organization. IF the Jets go into camp with Sanchez, Smith and Garrard, I would think Smith would have to really s**t the bed in camp to not be named starter. The notion that Smith needs to "sit and learn" is a fallacy, he isnt a 7th round developmental QB like McElroy, he was the best QB of this past draft and selected #39 overall. Plus, he isnt sitting behind Manning, Favre or even an average effective QB like Alex Smith was in San Fran. The quicker Smith plays and starts the learning curve the better. Garrard can help with the "off the field" stuff (film prep, playbook stuff and game prep) but as far as playing time goes, Smith needs to play from day one.
If the Miami Dolphins wanted the "sexy" pick for their starting quarterback, they'd go with Lauren Tannehill...erm, I mean Ryan Tannehill.
But sexy isn't the name of the game in the West Coast offense—it's efficiency, football intelligence and experience. In all three areas, Dolphins quarterback David Garrard is ahead of the pack and should be the Dolphins' starter.
Sure, each of the three potential starting quarterbacks—Tannehill, Garrard and Matt Moore—come with a unique set of pros and cons, but Garrard makes the most sense of the three.

In statistics that matter most for West Coast offensive quarterbacks—completion percentage, passer rating, touchdown-to-interception ratio and more—Garrard is the superior passer.
The stats really speak to the on-field truth that Garrard is better at going through his progressions and throwing to the open receiver than Moore is.
One look at the production of Brandon Marshall, as opposed to the rest of the Dolphins receivers, reveals the impact Marshall had on Moore and the offense as a whole.
Garrard, on the other hand, has gotten it done efficiently for years yet has never had top-end talent at receiver. He had one of his best seasons in 2010 despite a receiving corps comprised of Mike Thomas, Mike Sims-Walker, Jason Hill, Tiquan Underwood and Kassim Osgood.
He had one of his best performances that season against the Buffalo Bills in Week 5, going 16-of-20 (80 percent completions) for 178 yards, three touchdowns, one interception and a 122.5 passer rating. His lone interception was a pass that was tipped at the line and brought down by linebacker Kawika Mitchell; it's hard to hold Garrard 100 percent at fault for that.
But in that game, he spread the ball fairly evenly between five different receivers and showed his ability to go through his progressions time and time again.
On first down from inside the Bills territory, the Jaguars lined up in an I formation. Garrard sent running back Maurice Jones-Drew in motion to split out wide to the left of the formation.
Garrard began his progression immediately, as he began dropping back by looking to the right side of the field toward Mike Sims-Walker.
He came quickly back to the middle of the field.
He then looked to the left side of the field, where he found a wide-open Marcedes Lewis. Garrard smelled the mismatch from a mile away and threw up a jump ball for his big tight end, who came down with the ball and scored the touchdown.
Throwing the ball so high may have made for a tough catch for Lewis, but it also assured that the pass would most likely be either complete or incomplete, and not intercepted.
All in the span of two seconds.
Should David Garrard be the Dolphins starting quarterback for Week 1?

Garrard is admittedly more comfortable in the West Coast offense and told Vito Stellino of The Florida Times-Union, "l love getting the ball out of my hands fast, moving in the pocket, bootlegging. The style and the scheme they are doing is going to be great. A lot of the terminology is similar to what I was already running."
It's showing up in practice, too.
ESPN's James Walker offers his observations from Dolphins camp and says, "Garrard has looked more comfortable this offseason in Miami's new West Coast offense. It's a system the veteran has played in before."
He'll probably be throwing a bit more than he did as a Jaguar, but if his efficiency stays consistent with what it's been throughout his career, that can only mean good things for the Dolphins offense.
He is six months younger than Brady ... he's not exactly an old man.
Yes, his health will determine more than anything if he will succeed with the Jets, lets just play it out and see what happens.
Sanchez will play much better in MM's offense this year (if he gets an opportunity) but don't count Garrard out, if David stays healthy I expect it to be a true competition with Geno being upset about not getting enough reps.
