Boid Fink:
It certainly would be worth noting thatthe Bucs have a porous O-line, a run game that doesn't support the pass (plus Caddy has bad hands), and the Bucs have a shortage on quality wideouts.

If Garcia comes to the Bucs, it will be for starters money, and to be a starter.  I think we can all kiss Garcias butt goodbye.

The first sentence doesn't rule him out here. I don't think the Bucs have a starter on the roster right now, and they're certainly not paying any rostered QB anything near what the top starters are making, and they have the cap room to do so.

Boid Fink:
Yeah, but Garcia after his impressive run (with a team that is loaded -- sidenote) will use that to ask for big time dollars.  And the Bucs would be foolish to give it to him because of my sidenote.  And he will be turning 37, and despite the age not belying his ability-argument, well...sometimes you just come to the edge of a cliff and straight up fall off.  Espescially given the nature of the Bucs anemic offense.

And if he signs a deal, it will most likely be for three or four years, and that makes me nervous.  Big money, aged vet in an unproven offense (despite its similarities),  I don't know.  Not my cup of tea.

Agreed.  Nothing says rebuilding quite like signing a 37 year old QB. 

alldaway:
The Bucs o-line surrendered 33 sacks last year while the Eagles o-line surrendered 28. 

And either Jeff Garcia or Brady Quinn look to be in the future plans for the Bucs.  It could go either way it seems.

Bucs_Rule:
I agree with Boid. While Garcia seems like a good idea it would only be a 2 or 3 year solution at best and then what? We would have to sign Garcia to a 3 or 4 year deal with a decent signing bonus and that idea scares me because he could bomb here. In Philly he has a great line, a RB who can catch, and reliable receivers. Here he wouldn't have any of that so how do we know he would be good here? I think we should stay clear or Garcia.

cvillebucfan:
Gracia is going to minny. They have the cash, the rookie QB in Jackson who can learn under Garcia. Besides who in their right minds wants a 37 year old QB to tie up 7-10 million in gauranteed cash? I sure in the heck don't.

Quinn.....uhhh.....'pops Tums'

cvillebucfan:
Yeah that stat is not accurate. You have play calls that are involved and lets face it Grads probably was not taking a sack. The Eagles offensive line was one of the best units in the NFL this year. Its no comparision the play week in and week out between our OL and phillys OL was night and day.
