This thing's broken and the parts are scattered up and down Dale Mabry Highway. The Bucs might as well go ahead and trade Garcia -- if they can get anything for him. Here's an idea: Trade him to the Titans for Chris Simms. Or, seriously, just release him and hand him a check for the $2 million or so he's guaranteed.
As we said yesterday, this is a flat-out benching. It's not about Garcia's sore ankle. This situation has been building for months. You can assign blame to Garcia or Gruden, but it's past the point of arguing -- there are many points that can be made on both sides -- whether the Bucs slighted their quarterback or he slighted the team.
Time for both sides to move on.
