There isn’t a quarterback competition going on in Jacksonville, but backup quarterback Luke McCown is doing his best to change that.
McCown went 11-for-15 for 244 yards and three touchdowns while facing the Eagles backups. David Garrard, the oft-criticized starter, struggled to pick up yardage against the Eagles starters.
We don’t read too much into one game against mostly scrubs, but McCown is often willing to go deep when Garrard plays it safe. (McCown is also prone to crushing mental mistakes.)
McCown’s first TD toss, a 73-yard score to Troy Williamson, could impact a few competitions. Williamson is making a case for a roster spot in Jacksonville. Williamson put a clown suit on Eagles cornerback Joselio Hanson, who is also fighting for snaps in Philly.
