David Garrard will get a chance to compete for starting job

David Garrard (9) talks to Reggie Bush AP

Mark Sanchez might have a leg up, but David Garrard apparently has a leg to stand on.

Despite not throwing a pass in the NFL since 2010, Garrard said Tuesday he expects to be given a chance to win the Jets starting job.

They told me I’d have a chance to compete for the starting job,” Garrard said, via Seth Walder of the New York Daily News. “When I saw an opportunity to be able to compete for a job I thought that was good for me and my family.”

That Garrard is competing says as much about the Jets depth chart as Garrard himself. At the moment, that chart includes Sanchez, Greg McElory, and for the moment Tim Tebow.

Garrard said he talked to Sanchez when he worked out for the team, saying: “He seems to be an upstanding guy. It’s all about competition. I understand that and I believe he understands that.”

And the rest of us understand why the Jets are in the spot they’re in.

    They also said the same thing to Stanton and look how that ended

    He immediately called Matt Moore and thanked him.

    You know your team is in trouble when this is the best news they’ve had in a while.

    The Jets make it easy to be a Raider fan

    Funny but you aren’t hearing much about TT lately.

    If Garrard stays healthy consider the job his. Smart and still competitive if his time in Miami means anything.

    David Gerrard is the solution to the Jets QB situation – said no-one, ever.

  12. dbarnes79 says: Mar 12, 2013 3:28 PM

    He might be the best QB on that roster. Sad but true.

  13. winkeroni says: Mar 12, 2013 3:30 PM

    Maybe Garrard isn’t a bad quarterback. It’s not like he had a lot to work with in Jacksonville. Marcedes Lewis hasn’t been nearly as good since Garrard left.

    With the first pick in the 2014 NFL draft the New York Jets select ………..

  15. jetstizzi85 says: Mar 12, 2013 3:41 PM

    @ jets4gold – no they told me he was the #2 behind Sanchez then traded for Tebow.

  16. jetstizzi85 says: Mar 12, 2013 3:43 PM

    HAHA Raiders fan talking trash about the Jets is hilarious…hows Palmer working out for you? Has he EVER won a playoff game? Even Sanchez has 4 playoff wins LOL

  17. jetstizzi85 says: Mar 12, 2013 3:44 PM

    I was hoping the Jets picked up Garrad last season before Miami did. The man was to be named the starter over Moore and Tanny last season in Miami

    Be careful David! Being able to compete for the starting job is what they told Tebow.

  19. bartlettruss says: Mar 12, 2013 5:27 PM

    Doesn’t he realize that Tebow was told the same thing last year?

    These loser mutts from all corners of the country are having a ball. Dusty trophy cases and all.
    Cannot believe the biggest mouths are in Raider Nation and the Dolphins.

    Pats fans expected. They’ll never get over selling Ruth, and the inferiority complex from NYC. Keep passing it on a few more generations.

    Ha Ha can always count on a Raiders fan for a good laugh. What’s it been 10 years since you guys have even had a winning season?!! You guys can’t even get out of your own way on so many levels its quite the entertainment.

  22. lrjets says: Mar 12, 2013 7:53 PM

    The most “hilarious” thing about the “Florio Instigator Club” is these fools roam to the Jets articles, Jets fans don’t go to their boards.

    Too ignorant to see it.

    Was just wondering if the Raiders have signed Vince Young yet?
