Nearly every year, a quarterback emerges from seemingly nowhere to become an instant hero by leading his team deep into the NFL playoffs. Last season, it was the Pittsburgh Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger. Before him, there was Tampa Bay's Brad Johnson, New England's Tom Brady and St. Louis' Kurt Warner, just to name a few. Philadelphia's Jeff Garcia is a prime candidate for that role this year.

Talk about a quarterback scramble. Through the first seven weeks of the NFL season, nine teams have started at least two quarterbacks - Minnesota has started three - and this weekend you'll be able to add Chicago and St. Louis to that list. Come Monday, 45 different players will have started at quarterback for the 32 teams, among them a promoted practice-squad player, Buffalo's Thad Lewis, and one who has made starts for two different teams this season, the Vikings' Josh Freeman, formerly of Tampa Bay. Through seven games last year, just three teams had started multiple quarterbacks - Arizona, Kansas City and Tennessee - and all of them went on to have losing seasons.

The New Orleans Saints have not only Drew Brees on their side but fate. If Kevin Kolb starts at quarterback for Philadelphia on Sunday, it will be the second consecutive week the Saints defense will face a passer with little to no experience. In the opener, New Orleans picked off Detroit rookie Matthew Stafford three times on its way to a 45-27 victory in which Brees threw a club-record six touchdown passes. Kolb, likely filling in for Donovan McNabb (cracked rib)

'I've never missed practices. I've never missed a game. This is totally new to me, and it's frustrating to me. I don't like this feeling.' Jeff Garcia, San Francisco 49er quarterback, who has sat out two weeks of practice because of a bulging disk in his back

Concerned about a lifeless passing game and plunging offensive productivity, the San Francisco 49ers are considering benching slumping quarterback Jeff Garcia in favor of Steve Stenstrom. A decision is expected by Wednesday. "Believe me, I have not lost any confidence in Jeff Garcia," Coach Steve Mariucci said. "But his production hasn't been what we want it to be, nor what he wants it to be. "He's going through some growing pains as a first-year starter would.

As left tackle for the Oakland Raiders, Mario Henderson is responsible for protecting the blind side of quarterback JaMarcus Russell. Henderson also has Russell's back. "When people criticize him, it really upsets me," the hulking tackle said as he came off the field at training camp after the last practice of the weekend. "Some people say he looks fat. He wears baggy clothes; I wear baggy clothes. Sometimes, of course, he's going to look big.

As a new quarterback for the Oakland Raiders, Jeff Garcia will be playing under a black flag now. And he won't be waving a white one. So don't expect the 39-year-old Garcia, a scrapper throughout his career, to back off one bit, even though he's second on the depth chart behind JaMarcus Russell, selected No. 1 overall in the 2007 draft. Nor is Garcia going to gingerly tiptoe around the question of which quarterback he thinks should be starting when the season rolls around.

Jeff Garcia didn't give Adrian Peterson a chance to beat Tampa Bay. Garcia threw for 255 yards and scrambled for two first downs on a time-consuming go-ahead field goal drive in the fourth quarter, helping the Buccaneers defeat the Minnesota Vikings, 19-13. Peterson ran for 85 yards in 19 carries through three quarters, but his bid for a fifth consecutive 100-yard game fell short when the Vikings ran just eight plays in the last quarter.

Time, TV: 10 a.m. PST, Channel 11. Story line: The Buccaneers won the NFC South on the strength of a defense that led the NFC by giving up only 16.9 points and 278 yards a game. They were particularly strong against the pass, giving up an NFL-low 170.5 yards a game. That could cause problems for Giants quarterback Eli Manning, who has had an up-and-down season with 23 touchdowns and 20 interceptions. If Manning gets in trouble, the Giants will have to rely on a defense that led the league in sacks with 53. Michael Strahan, Osi Umenyiora and Justin Tuck will try to contain Tampa Bay quarterback Jeff Garcia, who had only four passes intercepted this season and who has twice defeated the Giants in the playoffs, in 2003 with the San Francisco 49ers and in 2007 with the Philadelphia Eagles.
