Despite offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter’s suggestion last month that the Jaguars would open their quarterback position to competition, backup Luke McCown is under the impression that he’s not getting a chance to unseat David Garrard.
“It’s David’s job,” McCown told Sirius NFL Radio. “There’s been a lot more made about it being a competition than there really should be. If anybody even hints to me about the idea of it being an open competition, I’m all for it. But that’s not the case.”
McCown’s comments indicate that Garrard has received virtually all of the first-team reps at Organized Team Activities.
Alex Marvez of FOXSports.com conducted the radio interview with McCown, and still calls Garrard “squarely on the hot seat entering this season.”
While the Jags may not hold a true camp battle at quarterback, Garrard figures to be on a short leash after posting a 12-20 record over the last two seasons, including a string of four straight losses to close out 2009.
