With Jon Gruden implying after the game that the starting quarterback job isn't settled because Jeff Garcia missed most of camp and the first two preseason games, Simms still isn't in the mix on a roster that's overstocked with quarterbacks. Brian Griese and Luke McCown are right behind Garcia (assuming he gets healthy) and the Bucs invested a draft pick in rookie Josh Johnson.

I wouldnt be surprised if Garcia doesnt start that opening game at New Orleans.

Te whole Garcia situation seems a little strange, given the past 4/5 months activities.

Last year 2 teams got rid of their starting QB either before Week 1 or right after it (JAX and CLE).

Interesting, sounds like Griese may have won over Gruden.

if Garcia doesnt play a quarter or two in the Jax game...  he's toast.   this stupid calf injury is completely bogus... Garcia is playing a game with the Bucs (just as they did with him)...   Garcia doesnt have his contract, he almost got the hook with the Favre trade, so Garcia is playing the ONLY chip he has, "the injury game ", to make the Bucs think he's more valuable than he is...  the problem is, Griese and McCown have filled in decently....   the other problem is, we've played Miami and a New England team that wasnt trying to win a bad as the Bucs were trying.  if Garcia isnt on the field this week, then trade his butt to Minnesota for some better pass rushers

a New England team that wasnt trying to win a bad as the Bucs were trying.

It only seemed that way because Belichick was so drastically outcoached.

This isn't a bad problem to have, that's for sure.

Garcia was looking over his shoulder at Favre, but he probably needs to be looking over his shoulder at Griese.

For a team that's defense is based on blitzing and deception, it does them no good to expose any of that during games that don't count.

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

What a surprise.. Griese was brought in to compete, not back up McCown as backup.

We've seen Griese before, and know what he's capable of... and its not much other than costly T.Os.  Either ride with the probowler in Garcia, or the kid who has a future in McCown.

Where does this notion come from? he's got 27 TDs and 19 INTs playing here, so even if every one of his interceptions went back for a touchdown, he's STILL scored more points than he's cost us.

Why do something that Garcia wants. If he is indeed playing with the bucs sit his ass so he doesnt play another down. He better come back soon otherwise the bucs wont shy away from starting griese or McCown over him since they were working their ass off in training camp.
