    If Garrard is healthy, he's a solid gamemanager and legit competition for Sanchez.
    Ummmm this!!!

    Some of u are FF crazed, that is all I can think

    He hasn't played in the defensive mastermind's offense, comparing apples to applesauce.

    No one is expecting David Garrard to be on the probowl list next year but if he stay's healthy his floor is still above Sanchez's ceiling. It's a stop gap and it beats the usual suspects/rogue's gallery of free agent quarterbacks, like Brady Quinn who offer little. We are drafting a qb this year ... hopefully not in the first round and he will be competing along with the others ...

    If David Garrard suffers an injury in training camp, whatever rookie we draft will instead be competing with Mark Sanchez for the opening Day starting gig.

    Garrard will be lucky to make it through training camp without getting hurt. He will last a game or 2 tops. The guy's back is put together with duct tape. Izdik knows this.

    So on the surface, it looks like he is actually trying to win. So the homer fans are now saying,"Yeah baby. This guy is better then Sanchez. He completes 70% of his passes. Yippee!"

    The real fans, like myself, see this for what it is.

    Idzik is creating the illusion that he cares about winning in 2013. Garrard will be on IR by week 2, sanchez or some other scrub will come in and stink, and we go on to win 3 games and get the #1 pick in the draft.

    Brilliant!

    Not so fast. I am convinced we will still draft a QB... in the 2nd or 3rd round.

The jets will attempt and i said attempt to put the best product on the field....with all the jets idicoy their last losing season since 2012 was 2007....some make it seem like this team is and has been the worst in football.
    LOL, logic?

    I have no problem with this signing. Garrard is a serviceable quarterback for this year.

    Well allow me to unconvince you. It'd be a mistake. If a 29 year old Brandon Weeden came out this year, he'd be the first QB taken.

    You gotta know when walk away brother. We're not in the market for a backup. We're in need of a new leader - and that guy is not in the 2013 class.

    Wow, I had to read the headline a couple times before the comprehension sunk in. The Jets - a signing! There is life!

    How can you say in march that none of the qb's in the 2013 draft wil start and be a leader...do you have a crystal ball....when the seahawks drafted russell wilson did they envision him being a leader and beating out matt flynn whom they got from the packers.....sorry but you just don't know...we won't know until we see them in camp and on the field.

    Wow, this smells of Rex. Do not like this move at all unless we also release Sanchez. Garrard is not a starter, just Brunnell 2

    Post New Story: Jets Sign David Garrard

    Today, the Jets announced the signing of nine-year veteran quarterback David Garrard. The 35-year-old quarterback missed the 2011 season with a back injury and couldn't make it out of training camp* for the Miami Dolphins last season after a knee injury. This is the Jets second attempt to elevate the play of Mark Sanchez through competition, after that same strategy resulted in a fail of epic proportions last season.

    Here are a few things to consider about the signing of Garrard:

    -Don't expect Sanchez to be dethroned out of camp: New offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg has been quoted as saying Sanchez...

    More...

    Just looked at Garrards numbers - he had a season where he threw only 3 interceptions - all season. The guy takes care of the ball. He threw more TDs than interceptions every season he played. He doesnt fumble alot and runs for about 300 yards a season. If he stays healthy he could be a real find for the Jets. At least he takes the pressure off so they are not pressed into drafting a QB in a spot they dont want to. Great move for Jets.

    Not even close, unless you are blind and don't look at stats.

    What round would u suggest i take Tyler Bray, because that is the QB i want. The kid has his issues, but he's 6'5" 230lbs with a strong arm and a quick release. Those are tools i can work with and a solid place to start when looking for a QB to play in the north east.


    The only way i would be excited about this signing is if it causes the guaranteed release of Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow. Going into training camp i want the QB rotation to consist of this Garrard chap, G Mac, Simms and the Rook we take in this draft.

    Joe Montana. Tom Brady. Kurt Warner. Phill Simms. Drew Brees.
    What do they all have in common?

    A) They've won Super Bowls and SB MVP's.
    B) They were all drafted AFTER the first round.
    C) At the time they were drafted, NO ONE knew they would be as good as they became.

    The Jets absolutely have to draft a QB int he first three round of this draft. And they will. Thank God they don't take football advice from you.
