NFL betting odds on the Philadelphia Eagles are likely to be a bit unpredictable for a while since starting quarterback Donovan McNabb is injured.
The Eagles signed quarterback Jeff Garcia and he could make an impact on NFL odds at the sportsbook in the future.
NFL betting odds are still uncertain this week on the Eagles in their game against the Saints since the status of McNabb is up in the air. The signing of Garcia really doesn’t affect this week’s game since Kevin Kolb is expected to start if McNabb can’t go. NFL betting odds have the Eagles with their seventh quarterback to be on the roster since the start of training camp. What is interesting about the signing of Garcia in NFL betting odds is that the Eagles will be able to use Michael Vick next week when they play the Kansas City Chiefs in NFL odds. With McNabb, Garcia and Vick, the Eagles have three quarterbacks with a combined 12 Pro Bowl appearances as NFL odds stats indicate. None of them will start this Sunday in NFL betting odds though as Kolb gets the start against the Saints.
NFL betting odds had Garcia happy to be back with the Eagles. "I know this is kind of a different situation," Garcia said, "For my family and myself, it was definitely an exciting time and an exciting opportunity. I’ve already exchanged messages with Donovan. I’m not excited that it comes at the expense of his injury, but to be able to come back to an organization that I have such great memories with . . . whether it’s for a week or two weeks or an entire season, I’m excited about the opportunity."
This NFL betting odds situation has happened before for Garcia and the Eagles. He filled in for McNabb in 2006 and went 5-1, leading the Eagles to an NFC East title as NFL betting odds results at the online sportsbook showed. He was the quarterback that year in the playoffs as the Eagles won in NFL betting odds versus the Giants before they lost the next week to the Saints in NFL betting odds.
Garcia was with Tampa Bay for a couple of seasons of NFL odds after leaving Philadelphia and then went to the Oakland Raiders but was released before this NFL betting odds season at the sportsbook began.
