Okay, okay-- The title of the thread is obviously pissing people off, and distracting them from my primary question, which is: if the Falcons do in fact sign Garcia, does Rich McKay get warmly praised for spending big free agent dollars on a backup quarterback (who may, as some of you say, be past his prime), whereas Gibbs was roundly criticized for pulling off basically the same move? And while we're pointing out how obvious this move should be for the Falcons, isn't it equally important for the Redskins, who had their own problems with depth at quarterback last year? It should also be noted that, despite the Brunell signing, and the signings of several other key free agents, the Redskins actually have more cap room than the Falcons at this point. That being the case, how is this a good move for the Falcons, while the Brunell signing (aside from giving up a 3rd round pick) was bad for the Redskins?

The answer, obviously, is that Dan Snyder is involved in one of the tranactions. It amazes me how much animosity he has created. I know he has riled a few writers and executives, but the man is near universally disliked.

The answer lies in what kind of contract he gets and how many draft picks they gave up (0)

Any team that want's to win needs to quality QB's Gibbs knows this.So must some others around the league.
But Garcia is going to Tampa. End of story.

Vick is a running back in QB clothes. Without him running anytime any pressure is on him he wouldn't even be talked about as a great QB.
And if Jansen would ever even consider letting a defensive player get through intentionallly to clobber Brunnell just because he's a great friend of Ramsey's then if I was Coach Gibbs, I'd release Jansen on the spot. Personally I don't think Jansen would ever do such a thing. He's a die hard Skin too.
