With Owens Out, Garcia In

Mar 16, 2006, 10:03 AM EDT

Just days after the Eagles let go of their most exciting player in recent history they bring in another quarterback who was torn into by Terrell Owens.  It seems like a smart move football wise.  Jeff Garcia, one would assume, has to be a step up from Mike McMahon.  The shocking thing from the Inqy’s article about the signing to me was the fact that Jeff Garcia owns the single season passing record for the San Francisco 49ers, not Joe Montana, not Steve Young.  This single fact alone proves the impact Terrell Owens can have on a quarterbacks stats.  T.O. is a ridiculous football player.

The irony here, of course, is oozing.  Cut Terrell one day and bring in Garcia two days later.  Donovan and Jeff can get lockers right next to each other and tell tales of how their feelings were hurt by 81.  The back story to the Garcia signing just adds to the circus like atmosphere surrounding the Eagles lately.  Fans seem to be in an uproar over the lack of big name free agents being signed and the LeCharles Bentley debacle.

Darnerien McCants was resigned!
