Garcia is IN

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

No Huddle wrote:10/23/05 8:17am MST - PFSi Detroit reported on Saturday that the Lions head man, "The Mooch" will start veteran QB Jeff Garcia today in place of Joey Harrington. The rumors starting hitting the talk radio market in the Detroit airwaves last night. Stay tuned to the Sunday No Huddle for all of the inactive, lineup changes and injury reports, along with who will be listed as the starters for today's early NFL contests.

good, we'll get to see how this changes things for detroit's offense. Too bad I already dropped Roy! Although I'm not very optimistic about the situation.

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

Hopefully this will help Kevin Jones spark a mid-season revival.

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.

Yeah - playing Garcia was OBVIOUSLY such a bad move... :-B

Granted the Brownies Offense was offensive but at least Garcia didn't give the game away and he actually hit some receivers in stride...

Any ideas who Garcia's favorite wideout target will be?

Until they all get healthy/not on drugs, it's probably Mike Williams. I don't know who it would be if they all played.

true that it is williams, and if williams performs well, he'll establish a fine rapport with garcia that should carry over when the other wrs return.
