Jeff Garcia won the showdown of the NFL’s Latino QBs. (Funny that NBC never mentioned the historic confrontation.) His Philadelphia Eagles whopped the hometown Dallas Cowboys 23-7 on Christmas Day. Garcia led the Eagles to scores on five of the team’s first six possessions. He completed 15 of 22 passes, finished with 2238 yards and 1 TD with 1 INT. Romo was 14-for-29 for 142 yards, a TD and an INT.
Yes, Romo has been one of the feel-good stories among many during this NFL season. But that he was named to the Pro Bowl after starting only a handful of games is stupid.
For Garcia, it was sweet revenge against former teammate Terrell Owens, who disparaged the QB in, what we say, a Jerry-Porter-like fashion after the two went their separate ways following the 2003 season. Owens caught two passes for 23 yards. Nothing to say more disparaging than that.
