Eagles | Garcia worried about backup job

Les Bowen, of the Philadelphia Daily News, reports Philadelphia Eagles QB Jeff Garcia is worried about the backup quarterback job to QB Donovan McNabb. QB Koy Detmer has been the starting holder for PK David Akers since 2000. Garcia said being the No. 3 quarterback was not something he envisioned when he signed here. He added, "It does [matter], when it comes down to somebody who's needed to step in and essentially play... I'd like to think that I can be that guy. Hopefully, we won't have to deal with that [Donovan getting hurt]. I'm not just here to just stand around - and that's not saying that that's the job of the third-string quarterback, because there are responsibilities that are required of everybody. But I'm a competitive person. If, God forbid, anything were to happen to Donovan, I want to be that guy who steps in and helps this team win games."
