On Tuesday, Jack Del Rio confirmed that David Garrard, not Blaine Gabbert, will be the starting quarterback for the Jacksonville Jaguars in the first game of the season. And the head coach wishes you were paying attention to him all spring.
That said, Del Rio made it clear he expects more out of his long-time starter in choosing him over the rookie.
"We need more efficiency offensively and certainly the trigger man plays a large role in that," he continued. "I think it all ties together. You know how I feel about it being a team game that we play and the timing of the routes with the receivers and the protection up front and the quarterback making good decisions delivering the ball. It all comes together and then you're able to do things offensively, where you're a beat off here or a beat off there and the play breaks down and when you have that timing it looks beautiful. So we're doing some things better and we've been in camp long enough.
