All these quotes came from Jeff Garcia’s weekly call in show with Ian Beckles and Ron Diaz on 620 WDAE the Sports Animal and were contained in Roy Cummings, Bucs Report.
- Garcia on if his arm is tired, as has been reported in some Tampa media outlets
“Not at all, I don’t know why that would even be a question. I haven’t struggled with throwing the football at all. If anything, I feel like my body has held up really well. My arm hasn’t been a setback for me at all. If I was struggling with any sort of pain, I’d ask the coaches for a break. I haven’t needed to do that.’’
- Garcia also said that Michael Clayton, Alex Smith, and Michael Pittman should all be in the game plan. He also noted that Ernest Graham will probably continue to be the main ball carrier.
- He made an interesting comment that might have gone unnoticed to some, but to me stuck out. He commented on how Michael Bennet needs to speed up his processing and learning of the offensive scheme.
