Six NFL Teams In Need Of Jeff Garcia at Quarterback

Jeff Garcia has repeatedly proven himself to be a winning quarterback in the NFL. The problem is that he is old and short. I understand that size matters in the NFL and I’m not questioning that theory: a taller, faster, and stronger player has a better opportunity to make more plays. True. But so does a better player—and sometimes the better player is smaller and older. So, after this week’s many debacles at the quarterback position, I take a look at the teams that should be fighting their way to Omaha to get Jeff Garcia on their team.

Most people would agree that an over-40 quarterback that barely registers at six-feet tall is not a very good long-term plan, but this is the NFL, or Not For Long, and long-term plans always need insurance, and I can’t think of a better insurance policy than a proven winner.  In his last three seasons in the NFL (in which he played) he had a quarterback rating of over 90, and two of the three years, he led his team into the playoffs. Not bad for a journeyman residing in the UFL.
