I've been a fan of Jeff Garcia since his little 2006 playoff run with the Eagles and will continue to be one until he finally, mercifully retires. He's not the flashiest guy, wasn't blessed with a big arm, and is particularly unimposing when he's photographed in black and white with freckle-splashed pectorals. But he's resilient. Every year it seems like the guy has to fight for a contract and convince teams that, yes, he's still a viable option and can help you win games, but nobody believes him. Do you?
Yet, here he is, once again, shirtless and scowling, trying to keep the Bucs atop the NFC Winter Vacation division. But to do so, he'll have to get past the Carolina Panthers and their frisky defense and suddenly unstoppable DeAngelo Williams. This will be one of the better MNF games of the year, as you have two first place teams, division rivals, all sorts of playoff implications and, of course, Jeff Garcia's wily quarterbacking skills.
