Brian Griese To Start Sunday Against The Falcons
Total Pro Sports – No quarterback on offense, Jeff Garcia is out, no quarterback on defense, Derrick Brooks is out. Which means the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be in trouble against a young and talented Falcons team.
The only thing going for the Bucs is that they are at home and have a winning record there.
Don’t be surprised if the Atlants Falcons come in and win the game outright. The smart money is on the Atlanta Falcons to cover the spread.
Something is wrong with Jeff Garcia, something that goes way beyond that ankle problem that materialized overnight Sunday.
Bucs coach Jon Gruden isn’t sure what it is. All he knows is he can’t trot Garcia out onto the field as his starting quarterback again until the problem is corrected.
That’s why Gruden told Garcia on Tuesday and the rest of the world Wednesday that Brian Griese will start at quarterback for the Bucs when they take on the Falcons on Sunday at Raymond James Stadium.
“I’m a pretty good judge of Jeff Garcia and I’m a big believer in him,” Gruden said in explaining the move. “I just believe that right now, what we’re seeing is not what Jeff Garcia is capable of doing.
“Right now he’s not the same guy that he was. So until I see the ball thrown with the crisp, accurate velocity, the confident swagger that we’re used to seeing, we’re going to let him sit out.”
