Jets QB David Garrard Looking Forward To Being A Mentor For Geno Smith
Per Brian Costello, David Garrard says he looks forward to being a mentor for Geno Smith.
“I’m a guy that does not mind helping guys out. That’s what being a teammate is all about,” Garrard said Thursday. “I remember when I came in as a rookie, and there was a lot of things swirling around me, and Mark (Brunell) helped me out, so I just like to be able to pass that on.
“I’m still going to be friendly to all those guys,” he added. “I’ll still take them all out and have a beer with them.”
If Garrard has not turned into Brunell when Brunell was with the Jets (a big if), this is a signing that could help pay big dividends for the Jets. Coaching is important, but a player mentor can reach a youngster on a different level. It's one thing to have a coach tell you what to do. It's another to have a peer who can be a workout partner and a sounding board for what is happening on the field.
