It's always crazy how the star quarterback gets hurt or does not play for an entire season and then the backup just comes in and does better than the star. What do you guys think

he will be ready next week check this out It's a new season for Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb, but it will pick up where last season ended -- on the bench. McNabb, recovering from surgery on his right knee, will not play Monday when the Eagles open their preseason with a game in Baltimore against the Ravens. McNabb hasn't played in a game since he tore a ligament against the Tennessee Titans on Nov. 19. A.J. Feeley is scheduled to start for the Eagles and Kelly Holcomb will play the second quarter. Rookie Kevin Kolb is slated to play the second half. When asked whether there was anything that McNabb wasn't able to do in camp that prevents him from playing in the game, Eagles coach Andy Reid said: "I really think he worked very well. He seems strong. I'd rather just start him off at our place, on grass, if possible." But the artificial SportsTec field at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore was ranked better last year in a players survey -- in fact, it was rated fifth best in the NFL. The grass field at Lincoln Financial Field was ranked 23rd. McNabb was having another solid season before he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee against the Titans last season. The five-time Pro Bowler was second in the NFL with 2,534 yards passing, tied for second with 17 touchdown passes, and sixth with a 96.6 passer rating. McNabb has had three major injuries in the last five seasons. He missed the final seven games of the 2005 season with a sports hernia, and in 2002 missed the final six regular-season games with a broken ankle.

I think Garcia came in and did an excellent job. It will be interesting to see how this plays out in the off season. Garcia is a Free Agent, and based on his performance, a lot of teams are going to be interested. I dont' think Garcia will be intereted in staying as a backup to McNabb. In McNabb's case, will he bounce back from the surgery? Do they offer Garcia a big contract with a lot of $$ as insurance? Additionally, I was reading at Profootballtalk.com that there may be some division in the locker room as the players rallied around Garcia.
