Jeff Garcia: Overrated or Underrated?

Jeff Garcia: Overrated or Underrated?

Underrated. I didn't appreciate him until the s**t storm that came after his departure.

What happened when Garcia when to the Browns?! His wackness was validated.

you can have all the nice parts in the world but unless you have a good quarterback they do not mean jack. Yes of course he was lucky to have owens and hearst who were at the top of their games but he also made plays with his feet and mind. when Ck came along and did some things in the pocket to buy time and help make plays... i think you have to agree we had not seen that since garcia. If those sorts of things are positive when Ck does them, I do not understand why they are negative when garcia did them. I think at the time alot of quarterbacks would have failed when they went to the browns. The only complaint I ever had with jeff, is that at times he acted like he was not having fun playing for us and he let that joe and steve shadow bother him and he turned that into a negative.

hurt his back I think in his last year which did not help matters. owens by then was a trainwreck,., we had clueless dickless hopeless erickson on board as well. sigh
post season records starting QB

Montana 16-7
Young 8-6
Garcia 2-4

I feel Jeff never got enough credit for doing a pretty good job following two hof guys. He also didn't do enough to demand greatness credit either.

It's ok to be good and not great. Thank you for your service Jeffrey

It's his calling card to forever bash Garcia and love TO's nuts.

Jordan, it's 2013. Been nearly an entire decade. Get the f**k over it already.

And Cedrick Wilson refusing to go down.

2003 was just a year of incompetence all around.

Yes he did make plays with his feet, I give him that. That's why I think he's overrated, because really...that's all he did.

that was against the rams, cedrick wilson wanted to be a hero 20 yards away from the end zone lol
Very good QB. Not nearly great but very solid.

Ran very well, good mid-ranger passer and LOTS of guts.

He did well for us considering the circumstance.

At the end it was time for him to go.
Duck throwing Garcia never did sh$t before TO and never did sh$t after TO.
I think he's where he needs to be. Not under or overrated. Our 4th best ever QB.
