David Garrard out for Jaguars’ season finale

davidgarrard

The Jacksonville Jaguars’ long odds of making the playoffs just got longer.

Jaguars quarterback David Garrard will have surgery on his right middle finger tomorrow, and he’ll miss Sunday’s season finale against the Texans, the Florida Times-Union reports.

That means the Jaguars will go with Trent Edwards as the starter, with Todd Bouman backing him up, 1010XL Sports Radio in Jacksonville reports.

In order to make the playoffs, the Jaguars have to beat the Texans and hope the Colts lose to the Titans.

    As a Jaguars fan and season ticket holder I cant help but feel like this is a big “F” you to Jagnation. Only fitting that its on his middle finger… I hope we draft a QB high and cut him.

    Let’s see what Trent Edwards can pull off. Hopefully MJD can play this game.

    GO JAGUARS!!!

    Might as well forfeit the game.

    Smart move Jags….. Another win under Texans belt means they go from 5-7 in next years draft to 12-14.

    Also, another win will let Bob McNair the Texans are on the right track “Again” and keep Kubiak.

    Uhhhhhhhh Frustrated Texans Fan.

    If the Jaguars somehow make the playoffs, I’d have to think the injury would keep him out of the wild card game next weekend.

    MJD can win a game just by himself.

    AND the jags are once again Done-ski.

    Although, stupider things have happened….

    As I have been saying all along, Garrard has given the Jags the best chance to win all season. Even in the early season meltdowns. Granted he does sometimes make crucial mistakes at critical moments, but this season his postives has FAR outweighed in negatives.

    Well Trent Edwards has had quite some time now to learn the playbook. But I think I got a feeling how this will end Sunday. Titans pull out a stunner and beat the Colts and the Texans beat the Jags still putting Colts in playoffs. One final FU to a season that 2 weeks ago had high hopes.

    Del Rio must owe Kubiak a favor.

    Or a reach around…..

    Or something……

    So much for drafting in the top 10.

    I was in J’ville Sunday to watch my Redskins play the Jags… fans were bitchin the entire game about Garrard and how they want him gone (seemed liked the entire section I sat in) – When he ran in the TD, late in the game that tone changed. Anyone want to guess what happened when Garrard threw the INT on OT?

    Wishy-washy, peepholes!

    SOOOOOPER BOWL!

    Well, as bad as this looks for Jax, as a Colts fan, I’d rather not rely on them losing.

    I say, just beat the flaming thumbtacks and you’re in. Strange things can and do happen in this league, see Philly vs Minnesota.

    Looks like everybody has forgotten about the Texans passing defense! Does it really matter who the Jags play as QB? Coming from a diehard Texans fan it doesn’t. Trent Edwards will throw for at least 300 yards and win the game for the Jags. Lets just hope the Titans can beat the Colts and keep them out of the playoffs!

    @tonyalexander: Yup, that sounds about right…

    Some fans were even thinking about trading Maurice Jones-Drew early in the season when he got off to a slow start. Like all fanbases we have our share of idiots…

    Nice words of encouragment. If the shoes were on there other foot I would be pulling for the Texans or Titans as well. Screw the Colts and their “I’m a die-hard fan since Peyton’s been here” attitude. They’ve been riding this Peyton gravy train for quite some time, but what they don’t realize is that his train well soon be out of gravy.

    This is flat out stupid. Of course they have been riding Mannings gravy train just like the Patriots have been riding Brady’s and the Steelers big Ben’s and so on…..And you would be too if you had a real quarterback….wa wa wa.

    Potato-Head Peyton will hopefully throw another 4 pics and be traded to the Panthers during the offseason – Go Jags!.
