Brad Childress says Vikings aren't interested in Jeff Garcia

Jeff Garcia’s father says that the Vikings wanted the 40-year-old veteran to play for the team in the event that another 40-year-old veteran doesn’t.

But Vikings coach Brad Childress says that the Vikings “have no interest” in Garcia, according to our good friends at KFAN in Minneapolis.

Of course, whether the Vikings “have” no interest represents a different question than whether they ever “had” interest in the former 49er, Lions, Brown, Eagle, Buccaneer, Raider, and Eagle and future Omaha Nighthawk.  Maybe the Vikings were interested, until they got the word from Brett Favre that, yes, he’ll be playing in 2010.

Per KFAN, Childress also said that receiver Percy Harvin practiced on Monday and that running back Adrian Peterson will play on Sunday night, when the Vikings face the 49ers on NBC’s Sunday Night Football.

  1. I dont like the idea that the Vikings MAY have had interest in the past. Bringing Favre in may have already ruffled feathers amongst the other QBs but if this were true then the lack of faith in the backup QBs is not good. I personally do not like Jeff Garcia and would much rather see the Vikes give Rosenfels more chances to outshine TJack.

  2. Oh Brad, you might wanna check with the owner and general manager before you shoot your mouth off to the media.
    Pants on the ground seems to be less of a rallying cry and more of a description of how everybody in football treats Chilly.
    Haha, glorified chauffeur.
    That’s “show-fur” for the slow readers.

  3. Garcia might not be Farve, but the dude can play.
    Its weird how you take a team to the playoffs and then no one wants your butt
    Boycottfootball.com

  4. They had interest til they realized this would get Favre’s undies in a twist and make him feel unwanted.
    Besides, Chilly just got new kneepads that have only been used a little to kowtow to #4.

  5. Jeff Garcia’s Dad is now his publicist? Hmmmmm this sounds more like Jeff Garcia is trying to find away to get back into the NFL because 32 teams have shown little interest in him. I mean if Jeff was such a great QB still he wouldn’t be going to the UFL… Just saying. Much ado about nothing.

  6. Brad Childress is the biggest asshole in NFL history. Hands down the most annoying person ever!!! It’s known inside the League how much Brett Favre HATES him and that’s why Brett’s just toying with him at this point.

  7. Sage is not a starter…Miami was looking for a QB for years and gave him several chances but he couldnt cut it. Find a vet or look to the draft. Should have gotten Clausen.

  8. Who wouldn’t want Jeff Garcia? He’s been pretty good everywhere he’s been. However, I am still waiting on Favre and I personally like the combo of Sage/T-Jax. So I doubt the Vikings are interested in Jeff Garcia, but there is no reason he shouldn’t be on an NFL team.

  9. Garcia would be a huge upgrade over TJack and Rosenfalls.
    but I’m sure that Lord Favre will arrive at training camp when he deems the rest of the peasant viking team worthy of his presence.

  10. They should be. Garcia is effective, healthy, mobile and though in his late 30s, is still younger than Favre.

  11. Jeff Garcia is still a better player than the current Viking back-ups. I’m sure that the Vikings did want to bring him in, but they had to clean up the story for the sake of team chemistry after he turned them down to play on a UFL team.

  12. “Vikings aren’t interested in Jeff Garcia”
    *********
    But a few of them did display considerable interest in his wife, 2004 Playboy Playmate of the Year Carmella DeCesare.

  13. You hackers are all nutz. The Great One will return and drop everyones pants on the ground. Packer Fans are in a tailspin with the Golden Boy at the helm. Brett Favre will be the Chuck Norris of the NFL. Get ready girlz he’s a commin.

  14. “No we aren’t interested in Garcia. I mean, since The Godfather III, what’s he really done? That was years ago.”.

    Favre will be a big fat disappointment this season.
    =================================
    Sounds like your life story.
    Didn’t you say this about Favre last year too?
    It’s been 3 years you big girl, he isn’t coming back to you. get over it and find a new man.

  16. The Vikes should have drafted Claussen. Way to blow it Childress. You better hope.. no pray that Favray comes back to save your empty bald head!!

  17. Of course, whether the Vikings “have” no interest represents a different question than whether they ever “had” interest in the former 49er, Lions, Brown, Eagle, Buccaneer, Raider, and Eagle and future Omaha Nighthawk.
    I count two easily avoided typos in the sentence above.
    Florio, do you even read these stories before posting them? No proofreaders at PFT?

  18. If you don’t want him Brad then stop “sucking”on his you know what already, Favre is waiting for his turn. GEZZZZ….

  19. Garcia will sign in the next few days.
    SEND THE ASSCLOWN FREDO A FIVE DAY LETTER IF YOU HAVE THE BALLS.
    Didn’t think so.
    TT made the correct move by sending Fredo packing. The Queens beat us twice (Acknowledged), but I just don’t think that will happen again. Another year of wear and tear on Fredo and then there’s that ankle with the target on it issue.
    Good Luck Queens. Enjoy the drama. Glad it moved NW.

  20. Garcia was not, and is not, a former Raider. The little lisper talked his way to being cut before he played a regular season down last year. Too bad, if he had kept his mouth shut, he could have played the role of Gradkowski the saviour, but he had to keep popping off about being a starter. The reality was he needed to mind his p’s and q’s and just wait for Robitussin-breath to flunk out in midseason.
    Garcia had ants in his pants and is not a team player. He really isn’t even that good anymore, but in his day, he got more out of that small frame and weak arm than just about anyone in history.

  21. Haha! What a non-denial!
    Of course he HAS no CURRENT (i.e. present) interest – Garcia rejected him…. It would be different (and probably a lie) to say that they HAD (i.e. in the past) no interest at some point.
    Crafty Mr. Noodle, Crafty.

  22. I think that Arizona might be looking hard at Garcia right this second too.
    Farve is coming back. No one doesn’t think that.

  23. … or maybe Chilly should ask Jeff Garcia’s dad when ol’ Brett Don’t Bother Knock’n When The Crocks Are-A-Rock’n Favre will have Yoko’s 2 qt. non-stick teflon coated frying pan dislodged from the back of his head ??
    …funny we havn’t seen the cell phone photo of that one yet have we??…

  24. Childress’ actual quote about Garcia, which Florio could’ve gone to Vikings.com and listened to like I did, was in response to whether the report was true that the Vikings inquired about Jeff Garcia, and I quote, “No. No. Man, anybody can say anything now and… get up in front of people. My answer is no. No interest.” Doesn’t sound like maybe they ever “had” interest to me. Check your sources, Florio.

    WHY…WHY, why should they have? The Vikings and 30 other teams could care less about Jimmy. Wake up you F’n moron! You are not a scout, stop acting like one just because you watched him play twice on NBC

  26. I believe Chilly…Afterall, he does have 12 world championships.
    Oh wait, never mind – I guess I was thinking of somebody else…

  27. Brad Childress says Vikings aren’t interested in Jeff Garcia but…… a reliable source has phoned me with the news that Ted Thompson and Aaron Rodgers are interested in Garcia. The 3 of them were seen leaving a Milwaukee Pet Smart with cases of gerbils under their arms….

  28. I’m pretty sure Chilly is not even allowed to know what’s on the training camp lunch menu…
    As a Pack fan – even I feel sorry for this guy. Watching a grown man get repeatedly humiliated by the biggest panty wetting p*ssy in the NFL makes even me a little uncomfortable.
    Maybe he should give Mr. Crocs a ultimatum like ol’ mullet head. How ’bout, ” If Brett doesn’t show up by game 4 I’m not gonna shave my beard – ouchee”

    Come on, you backed yourself into a corner now. Which ONE PERSON were you thinking of that has 12 championships?! I would like to know.

  32. So basically Chilly is saying what he has to in order to make sure Sage and Tarvaris don’t get bent out of shape. Got it.
    Remember folks, Chilly lied to everyone last season when he said the door was closed regarding bringing Brett Fraud to the Vikings. It’s sad, but you can’t honestly believe a thing the guy says, especially now at this critical juncture.
    Besides, why would Jeff Garcia’s dad just make something like that up?
    Eh well. I know who my QB is on game day.

  36. Everyone likes to dog on Chilly, all he has done is draft studs, improve his win total every year, get his team to back to back NFC north titles, and made it within a few questionable calls to the super bowl….Not many other coaches can say that…but keep hating and dating your cousins

    Looking to the past is unfortunately the only thing the Packer faithful can do when their current team is looking grim.

  48. It amazes me that Florio posts Vikings non story after Vikings non story, gives them all a negative little smart assed twist, and then laughs as all the Vikings haters come to repost their unoriginal redundant dribble. And it works. Time after time.
    Unconfirmed rumor about a hypothetical situation that did not occur. Who cares? It is in the past now if it even did occur.
    These Packer fans better have their super bowl parties now because the fun stops when the regular season starts.
