Jets asked if Garrard will return in 2014

The Jets approached David Garrard about returning in 2014 (Hubbuch).

Garrard said that he appreciated the Jets bringing him back out of retirement, but told Hubbuch “It’s Geno’s team.”

I have no idea what to make of this.  Does this mean that the team is already set on sticking with Geno in 2014?  I just don’t think that a guy who has been out of the league for as long as Garrard has can truly offer any actual production on the field should it come to that and asking him back in 2014 already is confounding.  No offense, but it would almost make more sense to see if he wants to return as an assistant coach.

Of course, just because they asked him back doesn’t mean that he would be a guaranteed player on the 53 man roster come September.

I love the Jets, but it seems like they never learn. I just hope they draft on offense in 2014 because the NFL is a passing league. You need to score points to win games and eventually the Super Bowl.

Depressing news Brian, so hope it's a false report. It DOES indicate they're going down the same Sanchez - Brunell hole with all the trimmings. Seems like they never learn.

Is there a more dysfunctional team in league history, when compared to the Idzik Jets, when it comes to quarterback selection?  Let's see:   this year the two active QBs had zero NFL games under their belt, and the inactive QB, for the scout teams, is a veteran who hasn't played since 2010.  Was Idzik worth the worldwide search to come up with such a tandem of inexperience?  Geno and Sims might have lively arms but they are deers in the headlights of defensive linemen, when it come to their inexperience.  I am sure Garrard has the wisdom of the ages in the QB room, but why bother if it isn't on the roster potentially to start games?  By the way, speaking of QBs, Woody owes Joe Willie a public apology at 42nd Street and Times Square, as everything Joe ever said about the un-prepardedness of the Jets' QB situation has been true.  From Sanchez to Geno, Joe has been right.  Did Izdik really think Sims was there to backup Geno in the event of a flame out?  Did Rex really believe he could win with two rookie QBs?  Does Woody really get excited about spending $120 million a year on a team that has no chance of winning in December?  The reality is that the Jets are no better now than they were when Tanny and Rex were barking about how Sanchez "could make all the throws..."  The reality is that most NFL roster QBs can make the throws, but the winners understand the game, not just the wind direction.  Since Bradway was right about Russell Wilson, maybe he should get his old job back?

I dont understand why Garrard is here this year let alone next. If he cant do any better than Geno or Simms why have him on the team at all.

Obviously they've changed the comments and I know what everyone wants to know.  No, the new system WON'T REQUIRE Facebook or Twitter and will allow other methods of authentication.

Is there a more whiney and over-exaggerating fan base than the Jets'?

@matthewm You realize that Idzik was the guy in Seattle who scouted and got them to actually draft Wilson, right?

Attacking and insulting the die hard (and too often) fans is always a smart move. They are definitely the reason the Jets make bad draft choices and business decisions, right?


That's like blaming the passengers for sinking the Titanic.

@dgdg @levi That's the magic of only having lowercase letters normally, I guess.
