    IRVING, Texas - Upon notching the highest passer rating ever against the Dallas Cowboys (157.8), Jacksonville's David Garrard - owner of a career 85.9 rating in nine seasons - fired one more spiral toward his defeated opponents this past Sunday:

    "I felt like we were really comfortable," Garrard said after his Jaguars dropped Dallas to 1-6. "I think we were seeing everything as it was happening. ... They were just standing there and played what they play."
