I hope they pick Garcia.
Same. In my opinion, it's a no brainer. I mean come on, Garcia came in on an Eagles team that had talent and won a bunch of games. He then led the Bucs to the playoffs. Garcia can just play, and never had the tail off the Delhomme had. Jake just imploded. His injuries caught up and he just can't play like he used to.
Bring in Garcia, get him accustomed to the offense, and then see what he can do if Yates starts making too many mistakes. Jeff has playoff experience -- more recent at that -- than Jake Delhomme.
LOL. Garica is 41 years old and hasnt played in 3 years. Philadelphia was a LONG time ago. How is he a "no brainer'? If he really could still play he wouldnt have been out of the league with all the needs for quality backup QBs. I think Houston should just go with the rookie.
It hasn't been 3 years. It's been two. He last played with Philly in 2009. And Who cares how old he is now!?! -- it's not like he's been sitting on the couch all that time (UFL in the interim) and is out of shape or something. Jeff can do something when he has talent around him. Favre is a million years old and was still making plays out there before last year. After injuries finally did him in, that was it, and if they take Delhomme over Garcia, that's exactly what they're going to get. A 2010-Favre-like beat up guy who can't play. Garcia won't be amazing, but he's certainly better than Jake, despite the age difference. He doesn't have that injury history either.
