I also saw Garcia's first series, yeesh has he lost a ton of zip on the ball. The guy is all guts, always has been, but his skills certainly have erroded in a hurry.
What bothers me most about the O-line is that the problems they had yesterday were the same weaknesses they had last season. Weak C play leads to gaurds having to help, which leaves tackles out on an island. And Backus is way too easily beaten by outside speed rushes. And he was beaten by some pretty average looking rushes. This line needs to come together in a hurry if the Lions are to do anything this season. And the loss of FB Schlesinger for the first 4 games is not going to help.
Garcia did look like what he now is, a decent back up QB.
The D was pathetic. Is it too soon to call for Jauron's head?
