Take 2 vet QB's.

QB-A a professional football player for 15 years. QB-B a professional football player for 17 years. 

QB-A working out all offseason. QB-B fishing, hiking, drinking beer and eating hot wings.

QB-A participating in OTA's. QB-B fishing, hiking, drinking beer and eating hot wings.

QB-A participating in Mini-Camps. QB-B fishing, hiking, drinking beer and eating hot wings.

QB-A misses most of Training Camp. QB-B misses most of training camp.

QB-A in the same offense, with the same players, with the same coaches and the same WR's. QB-B in a completely different offense, with completely different players, completely different coaches and WR's he's never passed a ball to.

QB-A is heralded as a great protector of the ball. QB-B known to toss an ill advised pass often that results in turnovers.

QB-A looks horrible in his first live game action. Weak throws, inaccurate passes and 2 INT's. QB-B looks sharp in his first action. Strong accurate throws on target and seems to know where his receivers should be even though he's never worked with them before.

QB-A is proclaimed to be rusty. QB-B....can he be anything other than rusty?

What's the difference between these 2 QB's? By all accounts shouldn't QB-B have looked worse? I mean no other factor at all than just the rusty excuse, QB-B should be a hell of a lot more rusty. It doesn't matter who they are, or what their resume is. If one of these QB's should be rusty it definitely should be QB-B. So was QB-A's horrible performance really do to rust?

What does a Hall of Famer have to do with rust? I guess by what you're suggesting, we should be on the phone with Marino or Elway? :o

He's a pro and a veteran. There shouldn't be any excuses. His performance sucked and he'd better correct his mistakes or we're in for a long season.

Amazing how many conclusions can be reached from a Pre Season game?  Some fans really grasp at straws for their own personal agenda.

Garcia made some mistakes..  Who cares? it was a pre season exhibition game.

QB B has talent from the gods and QB A is an overachieving journeyman.

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

If he plays as expected in week 1, then nobody will care. If not, then...well you know.

So you're confident durability is not an issue?

QBA was throwing timing routes and QB B was tossing balls down the sidelines.

I never said that. His durability is definitely in question at his age, IMO.

The last time we saw Garcia in January he underthrew 2 balls that were intercepted. Saturday he threw 2 more balls that were pathetically underthrown and picked off.  If you (and Gruden) want to ignore the giant elephant in the room then go ahead. But some of us aren't so naive.
