NFL  > General NFL  > Houston Texans sign 41 year old Jeff Garcia.
December 7, 2011, 06:31 PM
Garcia hasn't taken a snap since 2009. Maybe he'll be a player/coach for T.J. Yates? They also have 36 year old Jake Delhomme, 31 year old Shaub, and 28 year old Leinart. Between these 4, surely Yates can learn something, although he did look rather good against the Falcons for his first game.

Beats signing McNabb.

Agreed especially on the McNabb part.

I will refrain from a Garcia you know what joke, I'll leave that to his butt buddy TO.

Hahahaha..............I'd rather take a chance with Garcia than Delhomme, who they signed earlier. Wonder how Jake feels about that?

This being the end of both their careers and more than likely the last chance of ever starting a playoff game, you'd think they fight each other for the opportunity to play.

Texan fans have endured enough torment, maybe beating Dallas in their very first game was a curse?

Jake sucked the last 2 or 3 years of his career. Garcia could at least run. But, 2009 is a long time too.

I dunno.........I figured injuries would be somewhat different this year, with the lockout and all, and it has.....for most teams.....Some recover, and some don't, while others (like the Cowboys) seem to be confused and lost..........

The Texans looked good last week tho. They seem to be more consistent than the 'Boys.

Just can't believe they have the number one defense with Wade Phillips leading them. Not the part that it is Wade (he is a proven Def Coord) but the fact that he is a freaking Phoenix in that he left Dallas at 1-7 with his head low and now I saw him fist pumping in a Texan highlight.

I think that it speaks volumes on the pressures of a Head Coach and how J Jones can suck the life and will to live from anyone. Will I get **** for esss you sea Kay?

Wade's main problem at Dallas was that he was over his head doing both H/C and D/C.........not to mention dealing with JJ. He should have stayed one or the other, not both. He's doing great with Houston, so that should speak volumes about the management with the Cowboys.

They should have signed Brett Favre. Garcia has a wet noodle for a throwing arm.

He may now, but it can't be any worse than Brad Johnson's was..........I think Garcia is there for tutoring more than anything.

How would you know? Are you his personal trainer?

Interesting point, 40. Jimmy Johnson had the intellect and the ego to keep JJ at bay. With the exception of Barry Switzer--and let's face it, the Cowboys won in spite of Switzer--Jones has prevented any other coach from being successful. I don't get why he has this particular blind spot. He's terrible as a GM and his meddling ruins coaches.

Switzer won more so because that was still pretty much the team Jimmy put together. Although Switzer did EFF it up his first year. Hardly a day goes by locally that somewhere in the media, radio, whatever, JJ as GM gets questioned. Fans are so overly tired of knowing what needs to be done but it never will.

You nailed that! And the fans just love it!

Anyone is a better choice than Mr. Mississipi Interception , or Mc Nabb

I'd rather have Favre than noodle arm Garcia or has been McNabb.

December 8, 2011  02:11 PM ET

Wow....no love for McNabb. Lol.
I can't figure out what happened to him.
His last 2 stops he was demoted to 3rd string.
Guess it might be time to hang up the cleats:(

Most likely end up on TV...maybe he can replace Dan Patrick, that guy sucks!

Santa"Jack"Straw,
I think Jerry Jones kept his "ego" in check early on as he started 1-15 and was reviled for firing Tom Landry. As the success increased so did his ego, and when that ego met Jimmy's (which was growing too) combined with alcohol at that fateful dinner in Florida that was the flashpoint. Switzer was a joke, as you say they won in spite of him and recall they went to the NFC championship and lost to the 49'ers so they were only 1 game away from the superbowl that year too.

I would really like to KNOW what specifically drove off Parcells? I've never seen an official accounting on what drove him out of Dallas and to Miami, anyone know the details?

Jerry needs a yes man. Parcells has a deity complex. It was destined to fail...unless they were winning championships.
