Re: Intrest Shown In Simms
I like Simms as a QB - he does the simple thing well and seems to stay level headed.
Turnovers killed the Bucs against Washington - and Simms was forced to air it out a little more than he wanted - his 1st INT was a tipped ball which is not really the fault of the QB.
I think he still learning, but I got a good feeling from watching him play his first few games - he always seems focussed and never shellshocked.
The Patriots laid some heavy hits on him this year - but he kept getting to his feet ready to play another down and get hit again if necessary.
The Bucs would be crazy to get rid of him - there is a real shortage of quality QBs around the league as a whole.
They've been great for a while now, three Super Bowls' worth of great. But only this season have the New England Patriots become The Show, the must-see team of stars, pretty boys and reformed bad boys. Suddenly, the Patriots are not simply great; they're compelling, fascinating, appearing to be almighty and a touch lawless.
The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
