The Jacksonville Jaguars are bad. But just how bad are they? For more, we turn to a five-day-old story involving David Garrard.

ESPN’s Mike DiRocco was apparently flipping through the Jaguars’ media guide when he realized the franchise record for touchdown passes in a single season happened in 2010, when Garrard racked up 23. With the pass-happy circus that is the current NFL, that seems quite low. DiRocco talked to Garrard and gave him the good(?) news:

“I can’t believe it’s even a record,” Garrard said. “I’m definitely surprised that it stood up.”

DiRocco pulled out a stat to highlight Jacksonville’s accomplishment: Quarterbacks have accumulated 23 or more touchdown passes in a season 171 times over the past 20 seasons. The Jaguars, established in 1995, have Garrard. That’s it.
