In 2006 with the Eagles, Garcia had a season QB rating of 95.8. Only one of his seasons with the Niners had a better rating than that. The next season, with Tampa Bay, he had a 94.6 rating which was better than all but two of his SF seasons.

He was quite successful in TB and Philly without T.O.
I'm not sure which QB some of you guys were watching during the Garcia years. Garcia knew how to play the game. No, he didn't have a strong arm, but he knew how to play the game. In his best Niners season, he threw for 4278 yards and 31 TD's. 1451 of the yards and 13 of the TD's were Terrell Owens. That means he threw for almost 3000 yards and 18 TD's to OTHER receivers. Give the Garcia hating a rest. He was good.
So successful that both those franchises couldn't wait for him to leave. It's not hard to have a high QB rating when you rarely throw anything farther than 7 yards down the field because you lack the arm strength to do so.
Garcia was NOT that good, couldn't make 1/2 the throws required by an NFL QB, which is why the Niners..then the Browns..then the Bucs let him walk without a fight. Why else did all those franchises let him walk if he was so good. Neither us, nor either of them had anything better waiting in the wings, as history has proven.
Garcia made it difficult to really run the ball effectively unless you had a very good Oline and a special back, cause defenses did not have to defend the long ball, much less the intermediate throws.
