The fans have spoken, I guess...Too bad his starting WR's are Mike Williams and Kevin Johnson.

Yeah, I wouldn't act like Garcia is the savior of that offense just yet. He had a bad training camp, a horrible 2004, and now he's coming off injury to see his first game action of the season, with top two receivers in the lineup out. That being said, in a deep league I would consider adding him for the playoff run if you aren't set at QB, as he faces GB, CIN, NO in weeks 14-16, and MIN in week 13 if your playoffs start then.
garcia might not be the savior of them team but what he can do is prevent turnovers. harrington does nt see the field well. he just throws it and about 3 or 4 times a game he gets picked. Garcia is smarter with the ball and knows how to throw it away. With less turnovers, the lions might have a chance
There's only one possible thing left for Harrington, and it's the most likely situation. In the off season, the Lions will trade Joey to the Bears, who will put 100% of their faith in him, that he's their piano playing quarterback of the future. Then we'll get Tim Couch as a backup, and by mid season, we'll be playing a 6th round pick. I love it when a plan comes together.
