Handing out Jaguar Offensive Grades for Game 1

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

Quarterback David Garrard: I thought David had a good game. Three touchdown passes, no interceptions and a balanced attack. His accuracy was excellent against a good defensive backfield. He had a very solid game and won the game for us.

There is nothing more I can ask of David or any oher quarterback. Given his receivers and running backs, can you see anything? David Garrard earns an A


The Offense won this game. The offensive line was a C+, receivers a B, running backs a B and the quarterback an A. The offense earns a solid B.  What this means is that the offense must play very well to compensate for the defense. If the defense can improve to a B level, we are looking at the bottom of the playoffs. Well, that assumes Houston and Tennessee are not really as good as they showed. We need more power to move up, but I expected 8-8 this year with hope. 

So how did you see it?

    I didn’t get a chance to grade each player individually, but I’ll take your word for it. The information you gave to back your grade made sense as it pertained to each position. Although I would’ve liked an analysis of Rashad Jennings, Zach Miller and Kassim Osgood too.

    I think these should be compiled, so at the end of the year, each player can get an overall grade for the season. This would be especially useful to measure the progress all the young players are making.

    I must say Eugene Monroe played lights out in this game. I think he is earned an A.
