Garcia Surfaces

November 21st, 2011
The lovely Carmella Garcia and her former Bucs QB husband

Longtime readers know that Joe would never waste an opportunity to post a photo of Carmella Garcia, lovely wife of former Bucs QB Jeff Garcia.

That hasn’t changed.

Of course, Joe owns this page and could post a Carmella photo daily, but Joe does try to keep it related to the Bucs somehow. So Joe was giddy to see a Twittering from BSPN NFL insider Adam Schefter that 41-year-old Jeff Garcia recently had a tryout with the Texans as they struggle to replace injured Matt Schaub.

@AdamSchefter – Gary Kubiak told reporters Texans worked out Jeff Garcia, Trent Edwards, Brodie Croyle, Kellen Clemens. But also said might not sign any

Garcia’s return to the limelight means his former football coach father Bob is talking to the small town California media again. This time saying his son is fit and healthy.

Joe almost feels like he owes the old man a cold one. Keeping track of the elder Garcia’s musings in the Gilroy Dispatch (he did a regular Q&A session with the sports editor) really gave Joe some juicy material during the early days of this site.

(Quick story: Joe recalls asking Jeff Garcia about some of his dad’s more controversial comments, and Garcia explained to Joe that he would never try to shutup his father, nor would he ever stop being completely open with his dad. Garcia said if Chucky or others didn’t get that, then he couldn’t help them.)

Ahh, fun memories. Joe wishes Garcia well.

    It’s refreshing and nostalgic to see the lovely Carmela grace your website once again. I remember the early days of Joebucsfan when we could always count on a photo of the lovely Ms Garcia.

    The Hooter girls aren’t bad Joe…. but compared to Carmela…

    Anyway, I hope Jeff lands somewhere, even for just one more year. The guy was a competitor through and through. On paper he’s not the greatest athlete but man he could make some plays.

    I firmly believe that if we’d have getten hold of a younger Garcia, he would have taken us all the way.

    I’m sure Garcia is in great shape. Is anyone surprised? I bet T.O. isn’t surprised.

    Enjoyed watching Jeff play. Made the pro-bowl in 07 and had the bucs 10th in passing offense in 08. Shame we couldn’t get one more victory to get in that year.

    Garcia was the man. The thing I liked most about him was the fact that he didn’t turn the ball over………very smart quarterback. Great leader too.

    We should’ve kept him around in 2009 while Freeman was still developing. We would’ve been a lot better than 3-13. Leftwich was horrible.
