Did anyone else see this? Gave me a chuckle. This little side piece certainly was an eyebrow-raiser when I saw it. Garcia was recently hired as an offensive consultant for the Alouettes in the CFL and hasn't played since 2011, so the chances of anything happening are pretty close to zero, but it was hard for me to not think, in the back of my mind, how interesting it would be to have Garcia on the roster as a veteran backup -- even just a third string -- and even if he didn't play a single down.
I just don't think there is any other QB on the roster who I'd trust to "see something" out on the field to alert Kaepernick about and let us take advantage of some match-up or make certain audibles, etc. - Quite simply, since Smith left, we haven't had any truly experienced veteran presence on the roster at QB behind CK. And personally, I think that's a mistake. Having any sort of a strong veteran there would not only benefit Kaepernick, but it'd benefit other young QBs on the roster.
