Chris Simms has a stronger arm than Garcia. Simms can launch the ball 50+ yards.But there is a lot more to being a QB than arm strength.
I'll go out on a limb and say Steve Young, right now, has a stronger arm than Garcia.
FRG is the most logical poster on this board. You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.
Quote from: Buc Buckeye on July 06, 2008, 11:27:23 PMAs far as his salary demands go, as I recall he was a very highly sought after free agent QB. We got him, signed him to a decent contract - but it wasn't anywhere near what a starting QB with the ability to lead a good (not great) offense to the playoffs.Highly sought after? LMAO!!!!!He visited the Raiders and signed here. Actually, if the Raiders thought so highly of him, they surely would've signed him to a better contract than the one he signed here and is upset with ONE year later.Carmella, is that you?

Whether or not this has some veracity to it is not the issue. The way I see it, this would be a problematic situation IF it were a possibility. Entering into any kind of negotiations for Farve will create tension with Garcia who has shown that he really is mainly about the money. If there is a possibility of this happening and the Bucs pursue it, there will likely be a really huge fallout if it doesn't happen. Garcia will know that he would've been the odd man out and likely would hinder his future contract negotiations.
I know it's fun right now to bash the starting QB here in Tampa, but...Garcia wanted to play for Gruden. He has for years. If he had not signed in Tampa, he would have signed elsewhere and would have very likely stepped in as the immediate starter on whatever team he signed with. A number of teams other than the Raiders would have been knocking on his door.
Josh Johnson, say hello to your new mentor. Brett Favre!Wouldn't that be nice? If you're going to learn why not learn from one of the greatest WCO QB's to date?
We are early in what I can guarantee will be a very tumultuous month in the recurring Brett Favre will-he-or-won't-he saga, and what I can tell you for sure is this: No. 4 wants to play football again, and the Green Bay Packers desperately do not want him to.Will he play? I don't know. I don't think he knows. He has, however, told coach Mike McCarthy he wants to return.The issue is going to be pressed soon. I fully expect Favre's agent to send a letter to the Packers within the next 10 days, stating that Favre, 38, wants to be taken off the National Football League's reserve/retired list. At that point, the team will have no choice but to re-admit the league's most accomplished statistical quarterback ever back to football, and general manager Ted Thompson and McCarthy will have a decision to make that you can be sure is keeping them up nights. They can take Favre and his $12.8-million cap number back onto the team and give him his starting job back, they can trade him or they can release him.
Not really...only a few teams will be interested. Carolina has already said they dont want him.
