Breaking News: Garcia Still On Bucs Radar

Sounds like lovely Mrs. Garcia could grace the Bucs sidelines once again.

Sounds like lovely Mrs. Garcia could grace the Bucs sidelines once again.

UPDATE: Friday, 2/20, 1:30 p.m.: Joe has learned from a trusted source that Jeff Garcia has not, in fact, closed the door on a return to Tampa Bay.

As Joe reminded you the other day, he is a man. Therefore he watches NFL Network regularly.

Joe also listens to NFL Radio on Sirius.

Raheem The Dream was on NFL Radio today talking glowingly about Jeff Garcia and his winning ways and leadership and how the Bucs wanted to let him test the free agency market.

Then The Dream happily said, “Who knows, at the end of the day he may be a Buccaneer.”

(Joe couldn’t believe after that bombshell there was no follow up question by host Adam Schein.)

Sounds to Joe like the Bucs and Garcia were initially far apart on money, so they told him to test the market and come back soon to talk.

Now 39, Garcia will struggle to find a No. 1 job in the NFL. The Bucs might just be ready to offer him market value – lower than Garcia hoped – and a chance to compete for the starting job.

As we know, among The Dream’s first words were that he planned to “Stay the Course.”

    Why get ride of one of the few BRIGHT spots on OFFENSE!?!?!?

    Quickly, name a better Bucs QB?? Current? Past? Present?

    You can’t!

    This DUDE is the real DEAL and can play another YEAR!

    It’s time to move on …. say “NO” to the fragile future florist!!!

    Big Dog reading JoeBucs. Now you’ve arrived

  4. Mike Says:

    He would be a better backup QB than Griese for McCown. Whether his ego would allow him to be a backup to his backup from 2008 is debatable…

  5. Dave Says:

    This is RIDICULOUS, just like the majority of the crap you post.

  6. Joe Says:


    Feel free to post where Joe is wrong. Joe’s not saying Garcia will return. The Dream said on live radio the door is still open. Joe called someone close to Garcia who said the same thing.

    If this is crap, feel free to make some phone calls to the Bucs and get someone on record to say The Dream lied.

    If you are able to obtain such information, we’ll post a story for you and give you full credit.

    Just because some fans don’t want to hear certain news doesn’t mean Joe’s going to ignore it.

    Garcia’s not going to find a starting job unless Minnesota in convinced he can put them over the top or somebody goes down. The bucs are better off lettig him look at the market and letting him find out he’s got nothing out there. Then he can come home happy …. … He’s still cry anyway bu then he wont’ be mad
