    I really like his attitude and ability. He is emerging as one of the TOP 6 Qbs in the league. I think Jacksonville will be the 3rd best team in the AFC for a few years...

    sorry Jaguar fans, the Jags are good...just not in Colts/Pats company

    I agree. second time i got to really watch him play, and this guy scares me a little. He will be a good QB in the league....Great? We'll have to wait and see.

    Re: hats of to Garrard

    Yep...all week the assumption was made about Gerrard that he couldnt beat you, it would be their RBs. What I saw today was a guy with great ability thats underrated because, like Brady, he's great at reading defenses and takes what you give him...never really forces anything.

    Re: hats of to Garrard

    Totally agree, also Jack Del Rio had great game plans on both sides of the ball. He really surprised me, if Northcutt wasn't a chicken **** then they might have a had a better chance.

    In end too much Brady...

    Fellers,

    I also agree. The guy is hands and away a good QB and will only get better with practice and time. Del Rio made a smart move in ditching Leftwich for Gerrard.

    Re: hats of to Garrard

    Again, I'll agree. Actually the whole Jag team impressed me, and have made a somewhat fan out of me. I'll keep track of them next season and hope they take over the AFC South. Good team, seems to be heading in a good direction

    Re: hats of to Garrard

    I think Garrard could be top 4 very soon. This guy is terrific. We figured all we had to do was stop the running game. He killed us for a while. There are two guys that I know for sure that are better than Garrard. Brady and Manning. I think that Garrard is better than Romo. I have seen recently how Romo does without TO. He is mediocre. Garrard has good running backs but thats really it. He is a really good QB. I have newfound respect for him.

    If they improve in the offseason good luck to old Manning and the Colts having to play them 2 (or 3) times next year.

    Re: hats of to Garrard

    If the rumors of Chad Johnson getting out of Indy are true and he somehow ends up on Jacksonville, holy cow...

    Jacksonville plays hard, doesn't seem to have a lot of idiots and plays generally mistake-free football. There's a lot there that makes me wonder if they are the next big rival for our guys. Especially if Dungy and Harrison are on their way out in Indy.

    Garrard played a whale of a game and has nothing to be ashamed of. Ditto to most of the jags, 'though not Spicer, who got gashed by Maroney several times this evening. Hey Paul - "ha ha and fvck off."

    Garrard is a good one. I have a lot of respect for him after the game as well as for the Jags and their coaching on both sides of the ball. Good team against a better one. They battled the whole game.

    They cut Leftwich before the start of the regular season. What more do you want from Del Rio? He was obviously taking his time in making the decision.

    Re: hats of to Garrard

    If you have ever seen the story about Garrad and his battle with Crohns disease you will see what a down to earth guy he is which is refreshing. I look forward to watching him play for many years to come, looks like Del Rio made the right choice.

    Jags played a helluva game, it may not have been the closest game we have had score wise but it was the technically the cleanest game I have seen another team play against us all year. They didn't make many mistakes and played great on offense.

    On defense, they did the only thing any team can do against the Pats offense, they slowed them down, avoided big plays and made the Pats methodically march down the field. Considering they were up against the greatest offense of all time, you can't ask for much more than that.

    I'm liking this guy, so add my props to him, the coaching staff, and the rest of the team. Glad they're not in our division.

    Bunch of flipping huge guys!

    Re: hats of to Garrard

    Good disciplined team. I'm not about to crown them though. Our secondary this year, whether it be by design or not, has made some very average QB's look better than they are for most of the game. Garard is a good QB, but consider

    Manning

    Re: hats of to Garrard

    I thought he played great too. HE put the ball right on the money a few times, and he also put it right in his WR hands on the goaline, a millisecond before Merriweather buried him on a blitz. Luckily the WR didn't come up with the catch, but if you look at the replay, the ball was right there.

    Jacksonville did EVERYTHING they wanted in this game, they had long sustained drives, they took Randy Moss out of the game, they didn't give up any big bombs, and yet they still lost by 11 points. Thats how good this Patriots team is....................

    Re: hats of to Garrard

    Absolutely. I would love to see Indy as the Wild Card team, having to win on the road in the playoffs. We know Brady and company can do it (7-2) when they have to. What's Manning's record on the road in the playoffs???(2-5?)

    Re: hats of to Garrard

    I was thinking the same thing. If Belichick is keying in on something other than the passing game, a QB will be able to have some success. Why did Joe Addai have a great day against NE? Because Belichick took away the passing game.

    Great point. I think it explains much of the Philly game, too.

    Garrard played great. I wasn't expecting that. Hats of to Jack Del Rio on making that QB switch. It's going to pay off huge in the coming seasons.

    Re: hats of to Garrard

    If you look at Manning's number form that day, they look impressive. Take out Addai's long flukish catch and run before the half and his number were a pedestrian 15-26 152......

    Re: hats of to Garrard

    The dude made the throws of his life last night...esp. that first TD. That was sick. I don't think Tom Brady makes that throw.

    Can we have Garrard in the "Classy Bowl"? :)

    Agreed, he played really well. He made some really good throws and bought some time with his movement.

    The jags are not for away from being a great team if they keep improving.
