Del Rio Nixes Garrard's Radio Show

According to the Associated Press, Jacksonville Jaguars Coach Jack Del Rio canceled quarterback David Garrard's weekly radio show.

Garrard had been doing the show on Fridays.

"Less than 48 hours away from the game, it's not even a question," Del Rio said, according to the AP. "I don't even understand how anybody could ever advise somebody to think about doing something like that. It makes no sense."

Other NFL players do regular radio appearances. But most of them are early in the week--often on Tuesdays, the day off each week for most NFL players.

Garrard took the decision in stride.

The quarterback said of his conversation with Del Rio, according to the AP: "He said, 'As a father figure, I'm just trying to tell you this isn't good late in the week like this. You can field things early in the week and... rehash the past game. But late in the week, you want to be studying your film. You want to be with your family and you want to be off your feet, relaxing.' I totally understand where he's coming from."
