Never tear us apart

Call me a romantic, but I usually like to see couples succeed. Life's hard enough, and you need someone to share the experience with. That's why I'm trying not to get too mad about the love story that exists Steve Mariucci and Jeff Garcia. They're just trying to get through this together. And, well, I find that touching.

It's been tough the last couple of weeks for these two. Garcia's left leg was (supposedly) healthy, and everyone (except Joey) was happy! But the mended leg couldn't take the weight of the entire Lions franchise upon it, and it buckled. So Mooch had to go with someone else at quarterback, which surely hurt Jeff's feelings. But even when Mooch chose Joey, he was thinking about Garcia the whole time.

So there's been a bit of a triangle. It's like Meredith, Derek, and Addison on Grey's Anatomy.

But strong couples talk to each other, and work through these things. Joey's played well, but despite all that, Mooch felt empty. He still wanted his guy, his Golden Boy. And if Mooch has his way, it looks like they'll be together again. I think they're going to work it out, you guys! See what happens when couples want to stay together?

... Well, it's the only thing that makes sense to me. Do you have any better explanation for why the starting quarterback is even a question going into Sunday's game vs. Dallas?
