Garcia’s not that good

The free agent picking at QB are so slim this year that veteran Jeff Garcia, who is 37, is officially the hottest commodity at his position. If you watched Garcia on TV this year, you were probably impressed, and he did play well. But over the last few weeks of the season, Garcia wasn’t playing all that well, and that he was leaving a lot of plays on the field.

Not that I could tell all that much watching the games. Greg Cosell, the Senior Producer of the Matchup show on ESPN, told me this a few times, after studying Garcia on the coach’s tape with former QB Ron Jaworski. As they say, the eye in the sky don’t lie.

  • How the New Focus on Defensive Penalties may Affect IDP August 11, 2014
    FantasyGuru.com IDP Analyst Corby Yarbrough can be found on Twitter @Corby_Yarbrough. Not that there is anything we as IDP players can do about it, but I just needed to vent my grief that an already inconsistent aspect of fantasy football has the potential to drive us even a little more crazy in 2014. Week One of the NFL preseason is in the books, and if the […]
