David Garrard was slated to be the starting quarterback for the Jacksonville Jaguars this season, but just five days before they play their first regular season game, the Jags have cut him. I can't even begin to explain how stupid this move is. Even if you decide that you don't want the guy to start, you keep him on your roster as a backup for Luke McCown.
There is some speculation that this move was made in order to position the Jags for the Andrew Luck sweepstakes. It is clear that the ownership had to get involved for this to happen. While Jack Del Rio has not always impressed me as a coach, he is just not that dumb. Unless there is a compelling reason that we don't know about, this is just a really bush league move by the Jags.
I am sure glad that the Lions aren't doing stupid stuff like this any more. It is very refreshing to know that the Lions no longer have the worst ownership/management in the NFL.
