The brand new American Flag Football League will have its first game Tuesday night at 6:30 at Avaya Stadium in San Jose, and will feature a team with Terrell Owens against a team with Michael Vick while Jeff Garcia does color commentary.
When I heard this news, I thought three things:
- This game would be more interesting if it were Team Owens facing Team Garcia instead of Team Vick. Garcia always was a better quarterback than Vick and probably still is.
- Garcia and Owens played together, and after games Owens would say Garcia wasn’t a good quarterback. This flag football league could have given Garcia an opportunity to get payback. I would have enjoyed watching that.
- Garcia has to be the most underrated football player of the past 20 years. People forget how good he was because he came after Steve Young and Joe Montana. But Garcia accomplished something those two never did, which is throw 30 touchdown passes in back-to-back seasons.
Whom do you consider the most underrated football player of the past 20 years?
