The team where quarterback Jeff Garcia first made his name in the NFL had a chance to re-acquire his services this week.


But they passed.


John Czarnecki of FOXSports.com reports that the Buccaneers offered Garcia via trade to San Fran. We reported generally on Thursday that the Bucs are shopping Garcia.


Strangely, however, we learned that as of Thursday the Bucs hadn’t called the team that would be the most obvious fit for Garcia, the Vikings.


Perhaps coach Jon Gruden doesn’t want Garcia to land on a team where he’d possibly make an instant impact, especially since the Vikings and Bucs get together on November 16.


The mentality is a common one in the NFL. The last thing that a coach who has given up on a player wants or needs is to see the player playing well for someone else.

Playing qb for Gruden is akin to coaching for Al Davis, methinks.



It's a no-win situation. :wacko:


Yeah, Gruden does and awful job of getting lightly regarded QBs to turn in good-to-great performances (see, Rich Gannon, Jeff Garcia, Brad Johnson, etc), leading their teams to victories in the process.
