This is a huge game. A win is sorely needed as the next 6 match-ups consist of: @ Chicago, Green Bay, @ Denver, Carolina, Seattle, and @ Dallas. That is as fierce as it gets kids.
Hopefully Head Coach Jon Gruden knows what he's doing by benching Garcia. You might want to keep an eye on the bench and whether Garcia and Gruden talk or even share eye contact for that matter.
Although the story is Brian Griese starting the game, I'm more worried and will be focused on the defense and whether they can contain RB Michael Turner. Sure the Saints had 3 BIG plays last week, but Reggie Bush also had his way with the Bucs...
