If I'm a 49Ers fan, I would asking what is wrong with the San Francisco management? You have an opportunity to acquire a stable, pro-bowl quarterback, in a very weak division, and your quarterbacks have been either unimpressive or injured. It is beyond me on what direction do the 49Ers want to go in. Garcia would make a nice addition and give Mike Martz's offense some meat, but hey, why win when you can go into mediocrity and live on your glory days of the 80s and 90s. Seeing all of this, thank goodness I'm not a Niners fan.
Actually I disagree and I am a 49ers fan. And no this is not because they won today or because JT looked much better than last week. But you have to look at this two ways. First, we have no idea of what TB wanted in return which is of major importance.
Second, I do not see big things in store this year for SF and would rather see what JT has now so when we draft next year, we know if we need a QB or not. As far as I am concerned, ASmith is done as a 49er and maybe even in the NFL. I agree it's not all his fault as it was a bad situation from the start, but he has shown no sign of improvement over the years. So that leaves us with JT or SHill. I do not see SHill as being a starting NFL QB, so JT is the only option right now.
But if Garcia were brought in, we wouldn't see JT nor would we know if a QB was needed or not next year. And I don't see Garcia playing much more beyond a season if he goes beyond one more year, so he would be nothing more than a band aid for a team that needs to evaluate the younger talent so they can continue to rebuild.
i for one feel bad for garcia. he has never been a flashy QB, but has always seemed to be able to get the job done (omitting his cleveland experience of course ), and has done it in a pretty professional manner. he still never seems to get a fair shake with any of the teams he lands on. i for one would love to see him go somewere and succeed before the end of his career.
i think he would be a good fit in a martz offense, although he doesnt really have the arm strength to take full advantage of it...but i still see a big upgrade over JT. fantasy wise, you would be able to upgrade everyone on that side of the ball.
I heard on the radio this morning that Garcia might be traded to the vikes but it was just a rumor and nothing else disclosed... I saw this thread and thought i'd post it. I don't wanna swirl a rumor mill, but our radio stations were talking about it... Garcia would be a nice upgrade. We'll give them Frerotte and a ham sandwich. (I had to up BB24's offer)... dee let us know when we have a deal

I'd like to see Garcia in purple but once again I feel Childress will be too stubborn to go away from Jackson. Jackson wasn't awful yesterday, and I'd like to see what he could do with a competent guy calling the plays, but Garcia would be a shot in the arm for a team that's built to win now. It would take him awhile to learn the system but his experience in the West Coast would give him a leg up. Overall I don't think the Vikes passing game goes anywhere until the playcalling improves. But when Childress is calling the plays I do not see that happening. I hate Brad Childress.
