I saw the Panthers vs. Ravens game last night, and I saw unpolished quarterbacks with unpolished receivers. The Panthers have talent on their roster, but they lack experience.

I believe if the Panthers signed Jeff Garcia, that would be a huge boost. The Panthers have four quarterbacks on their roster, but that doesn't mean they can't make room for one more.

I know Garcia isn't the same quarterback he was when he was with 49ers. However, he would bring experience, which the team desperately needs, and could be a valuable third-string quarterback.

I know some Panthers fans may disagree with me, but just remember one number—eight. That is how many starts all of your quarterbacks have combined.
