In the Bold Predictons thread I stated that Garcia would be a Redskin by the end of the year.I nearly made Garcia the 3rd option, Sarge. In fact, that was my intention when I picked 3 as the number of options for the poll and then changed my mind.
I am not convinced of this Boone. The offensive line did not give Collins any time to complete passes, nor did the receivers get open that often. On at least one occasion, Collins had just enough time to throw an incompletion when there was a wide open receiver. He did see the field better, but there wasn't much field to see.There's a decent chance we'd have won today, if Collins had gotten significant reps during the week and started. I'll go out further on a limb and say we'd be 4-2 at worst if he'd been our guy all along. He can at least read a defense and knows what to do under pressure.
That's not to say our problems don't go far deeper - just stating the obvious. He's about 4 x steadier than Mr. Jittery back there.
Agreed but since he hasn't started in over a year, it's hard to say how Collins would fare this week with a full week of practice as the starter. I'd be worried our turnstile O-Line would get him killed. Too bad we can't insert TC into Jason's body.There's a decent chance we'd have won today, if Collins had gotten significant reps during the week and started.

I agree with this. However, why wait until 2010? If Collins does well, great. However, if he struggles, due to poor pass protection, as I suspect he will, why let the old man get killed? Bring back Chase Daniel. Let Collins start the Philly game. If he struggles then Daniel has this week and the bye week to get back up to speed. Then let him use those young legs to run from defenders. And, if they win the lottery, maybe they find Daniel has something. At least this way there is no doubt the team has shifted to rebuild mode rather than desperately trying to squeeze out wins from an old body.At this point I think Collins deserves the chance to start and finish ONE game.
Collins with better accuracy and quicker release is a better immediate fit until a new quarterback can be drafted in 2010.
