If we could get a 25 year old Jeff Garcia.....I'd be stoked. He might be my favorite Bucs QB of all time. He wasn't an elite pocket passer....but he was a leader, he was tough as nails, he was a competitor to the core, and he could make things happen with his feet. We got him at the end of his career, but back in 2000 and 2001 he was freaking awesome. I wish we'd have made the move to get him when he left the 49ers instead of waiting 3 years. Things coulda been a lot different. Anyways, I want another guy like that.

I think Kap is the perfect QB to have in today's NFL.  Big guy, big arm, and can run for big chunks of yardage. 

On a related note, Wilson was saying today, he attended Peyton Manning's QB camp when he was 15 years old.  And now he faces him in the Super Bowl.  That has to make Manning feel really old. It wouldn't surprise me if Manning calls it a career after the Super Bowl. He has to have that neck examined after the Super Bowl. I am sure he has plenty of cash tucked away, whats left to prove? Might as well go out on top.

\\\\\\\"Java, do you understand this a perfect example of why people beg me to suspend or ban you on a daily basis? Are you actually trying to make a point? Seriously what is the reason for even commenting. In fact why do you even bother coming to the boards? What happened to the intelligent poster from years ago?  A real shame. Like the Bucs yesterday, a wasted effort.\\\\\\\"

Actually, Kap himself is a free agent after next season.  But yes I know, his chances of reaching free agency are slim to none.  They are trying to extend him right now.  If he had won the Seahawk game, he would of been in line for something like 18mil per season. But with the loss, it will be something less than that, but not by much.

He has a net worth of $165 million

From what I seen of him I felt like Huff bailed him out of some not so good throws.

Well he's in luck cause there are a lot of really good receivers in the NFL to bail him out.

1   Peyton Manning
2   Drew Brees
3   Matthew Stafford
4   Matt Ryan    
5   Philip Rivers
6   Tom Brady
7   Andy Dalton
8   Carson Palmer
9   Ben Roethlisberger
10   Ryan Tannehill

Top 10 QB's in passing yards this year. None of them are really any threat as far as running with the ball.


Actually Tannehill, Brees, and Rapistberger are quite mobile. Being mobile doesn't have to mean taking off and running. Still, if you are gonna make a list like this, seems like you should include total yards including rushing. By not including rushing yards and rushing TDs, you are already creating a bias towards mobile QBs.

I guess you have me blocked seeing as I can't PM, but I was going to let you know I made a chart for those QB's. I'll try to get one with total yards.

Passing yards + Rushing yards - Sack yards

That's a really cool chart man. I wish it also included 1st downs and TDs....but it is cool to see the total yardage. I'm surprised Newton, Kap, and Wilson didn't make the top 10. I gotta assume they are like 11, 12, and 13 though....right?

Don't feel bad. I think he blocked me too as I sent him a PM as well. Great chart though.
