Now that he's been waived by the 49ers, where does Jeff Garcia end up? I read one scenario at CBS Sportsline that had San Diego trading their #1 pick to Arizona (Eli Manning was believed to have been the Chargers' choice) and trying to sign Garica?

What do you west coast fans think and know of this?

I think the Chargers would be making a huge mistake passing up Eli for Garcia. I really don't see them challenging next year no matter who they get in at QB so they'd be far better building for the future and taking a guy who could be good to great in a couple of years, rather than opting for an above average 30 something.

Of the teams with plenty of cap room and the need for a QB Dallas stand out to me as a possible destination, as does Jacksonville though they seem pretty keen on Leftwich. His availability makes poor old Kordell's future look all the bleaker though.

I have never been a fan of taking a QB so high in the draft. I will always believe the Chargers made the right deal when passing on Vick for Tomlinson. You can find good QB's later on in the draft if you know what you are looking for and set up your offense around your QB. If you can get a stud Defensive Lineman I would take him.

Some of the papers up here seem to think that Garcia might end up back in the CFL, though that could just be a pipe dream. Surely there are enough crappy QBs in the NFL that need to be replaced.

CJ: Coming up with T-Shirt ideas is hard Mark, why not leave it to the WWE marketing department.
MH: I know! I’ve got it!
CJ: Got what?
MH: Stank! That’s Mah Stank! I’m gonna make a fortune!!
CJ: “That’s Mah Stank”?
MH: On the front it’ll say “Can You Smell It?” and on the back it’ll say “That’s Mah Stank”. Everybody’ll buy it because they’ll think it’s a Rock shirt.
CJ: You know…you might be on to something there, sad to say.
MH: I can’t wait to show mah stank to Trish.

You know, I have a feeling that Spanky didn’t quit, he was fired. Why? So they could repackage Mark Henry as “Stanky.” Think about THAT!

I think he ends up in Cleveland. No real backup to support that, just a hunch.

I'm still trying to figure out why they restructured Flutie's deal to keep him for an additional 3 years. Assuming we pick up a QB, we would have Flutie, Brees, and Manning (They have to pick Manning, please make them pick Manning).

I'm wondering if Brees is up on the block?

The Chiefs had enough cap room to resign their free agents, and that's what they did. Some of the defensive talent that is out there has me wishing, though.

As a Cowboys fan, I guess Garcia would be fine. I'd rather see him in Cleveland with a non-disgruntled Tim Couch at Valley Ranch.

An NFL contract is not guaranteed, so they usually make them long to prorate the signing bonus over the years of the contract for salary cap purposes. I'd be willing to bet that the Chargers could release Flutie by June 1 and not take a big cap hit. I'd expect them to do that if they take Manning.

Guru, do you really think Manning is the answer? It would seem to make some sense to think that if the Chargers traded down they could still get an impact guy at wide receiver to go with Boston and LT, and give Brees another go with more quality at the skill positions in 2004. Especially given the recent success of some QBs who were drafted in lower rounds, and the fact that Palmer and Carr (the last two #1 overall picks) got HUGE contracts and surely Manning will get a similar contract.

Of course, if you say Brees just sucks and HAS GOT TO GO, I'm not going to argue.

I'll never forgive them if they pass on Manning and he turns out to be better than his brother.

I will forgive them if they pick him and screw it up, or he's not as good, because at least they are trying. It's not like we have a great QB right now in Brees. He's probably in the top half of QBs in the league - definitely not the worst, but no where near where I'm projecting Manning.

Sure, there are a lot of guys that are better than Brees. I guess I'm just not sure how many guys are better than E. Manning -- and I'm not willing to have the team pass because of Ryan Leaf.

I know Leaf is going to burn us a second time on this, and it frustrates me. We passed on Vick. That should atone the spirit of Leaf. Let's not miss on Manning.

Well now the reports say Tampa Bay is highly interested. But they already have Brad Johnson & aren't they pretty strapped cap-wise?

But seriously, don't you agree those are pretty damn long odds? Peyton has set some BIG numbers up there that have never been achieved in the history of the league. I think Eli's going to end up being Ramon Martinez to Peyton's Pedro, a solid pro but one who ends up being fairly forgettable.

Dr Z no Eli fan (sportsillustrated.cnn.com)


I still think the best move for the Chargers would be to trade down and get some line help. This team is more than just a good QB away. You need to build for the long hall and that mean a core young Off and Def line

Garcia was just in town to talk with the Brownies. Local station interviewed him at the Cleveland Airport.



Cavaliers: 25-36. 0.5 games out of the playoffs. The East is pathetic.
Indians: 0-0
Browns: 0-0

Made the wires that Cleveland is very interested, especially if Couch balks.

I get the feeling he may wind up in Atlanta, since I'm sure the Falcons don't want to deal with the same problems they had last year when/if Michael Vick goes down. Cleveland could be a good pick too, since I don't see Couch or Holcomb leading them to the promised land anytime soon.
