Garcia on the Block


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are reportedly shopping quarterback Jeff Garcia.  PFT says the situation between Garcia and Jon Gruden has become untenable and the Bucs will take “anything they can get” for the veteran signal-caller.  To those who will now call for the Vikings to acquire Garcia:  They had a chance before last season when he was a free agent coming off that playoff run with Philadelphia, and Brad Childress basically had no interest.  The one guy on the Vikings who flat-out called for Garcia was Antoine Winfield, who moped and skipped out on OTAs when the team didn’t listen to him.  Dear Antoine:  Please keep your mouth shut about Garcia this time.  The Vikings aren’t getting him.  Tarvaris Jackson is our quarterback and he will be the quarterback at the end of the season when we’re 6-10.  Garcia to the Vikes is a pipe-dream just as Favre to the Vikes was.  And just as Vikes to the playoffs will remain.
