If you are a fan of the New York Jets, you have probably been searching for rumors about who Rex Ryan will bring in as his starting quarterback in 2013 for quite some time already. The good news is, it will not be Mark Sanchez or Tim Tebow. The bad news is, it looks like it will be David Garrard.

Rex Ryan and the New York Gets worked out the 35-year-old David Garrard last week and the former Jacksonville Jaguars' starter believes it went well.

"It was a great workout," Garrard said. "Every drill they had me do, I did great in. I felt like my old self again. They loved what they saw."

David Garrard was last seen as a member of the Miami Dolphins last season and was believed to be their starter until he injured his knee during training camp. A lot of people are questioning just how much David Garrard has left in his tank, but the QB is not concerned. He feels like he can play and he believes he is more than capable of becoming the Jets' starter.

"I don't have anything to prove to myself. I know I can play," he said. "I'm not ready to be done yet when I can out there and move around. It's unfortunately these last two years I've had these injuries that really weren't football injuries, because I didn't get hit and get hurt."

"I want to go out and win ballgames. I've been watching for the last few years unfortunately and I've been watching some not-so-good quarterback play out there and I know that I can still play and I can play at a high level," he said. "I want to get back out on the field and show myself that I can stay healthy and help a ballclub, really."

If Rex Ryan does sign David Garrard as his starter for the upcoming 2013 NFL season, it is just further evidence that he is the dumbest head coach in the National Football League. Even when David Garrard was in his prime, he was not a great quarterback. Now that he is 35 years old, he is barely even worthy of a roster spot.
