The Jaguars passing had its issues in 2009, and the team is hoping to get back on track, but to do that, they will need QB David Garrard to return to the form of two years ago. It’s a huge storyline for the team heading into 2010.
2009 Season: Garrard threw 15 touchdowns and 10 picks, and put up 224 yards per game. He had three 300+ yard games, but also had five games where he threw for less than 200 yards. The team grew frustrated him at times, including a 41-0 loss in week five at Seattle where he threw for 188 yards but went just 18-for-31 passing.
What to Expect in 2010: The heat is on Garrard this year, as the team has invested a lot of time and money in him, and they are expecting him to at least be in the 20-25 TD area, and close to 4000 yards passing. He has a good run game to work off of with Maurice Jones-Drew, and also can run himself. The Jags are headed for a tough season though it appears, and with it Garrard shouldn’t be more than a backup on any fantasy team out there.
