A rival NFL executive predicts that David Garrard will be the starting quarterback for the New York Jets in 2013


David Garrard would be an ideal Band-Aid for the Jets under center.

Provided the rusty 35-year-old remains healthy, one rival executive predicted to NFL Network’s Kim Jones that quarterback David Garrard will start Week 1 for the New York Jets against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on September 8.

Tentatively slated to battle rookie Geno Smith and abysmal chucker Mark Sanchez for the starting job, the 6-foot-1, 235 pound Gerrard could be an ideal Band-Aid for Gang Green.

A 2009 Pro Bowler, Gerrard has thrown 89 scores, against 54 picks, for 16,003 yards since debuting with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2002.

With a potentially standout defensive front seven, a veteran passer who is responsible handling the pigskin makes sense for this rebuilding version of the Jets.

Smith is clearly New York’s future and there’s no reason to believe the former Mountaineer can’t fly as a Jet in the swamps of Jersey.

Nevertheless, after tossing Sanchez like a used Trojan, David Garrard should become the most important offensive performer for the New York Jets this autumn.
