After David Garrard and Luke McCown split reps during a May minicamp, there was some speculation the starting quarterback position was up for grabs in Jacksonville. Jaguars offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter had said McCown was "sharp" and that they "like what we see out of Luke in the meeting room and what we saw of him in minicamp." But McCown has indicated there is no quarterback controversy.
"It's David's job," McCown said on 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."
Garrard needs to play better, but it's hard to see McCown being a savior if Garrard stumbles. With Jacksonville's centerpiece on offense being Maurice Jones-Drew, whoever lines up under center is not going to be anything more than a fantasy backup. Garrard is currently ranked 18 in our rankings.
