  • Simms dropped to 3rd on Bucs Depth Chart

    Wow, didn't see this coming.

    I said all during the draft that we needed to trade the kid for a late 2nd or 3rd round draft choice or even in a deal to get Calvin Johnson (but I am very happy with our draft and do not regret us at all not trading to get him).

    I don't see this as a big deal. Garcia is definitely outplaying every other QB we have, but Simms will still have the backup spot if/when he gets back into rhythm.

      It doesn't matter.
      All of our QBs suck.

        Just one of Gruden's mind games.

            I'm not so sure this is solely a motivational tool by Gruden. I could easily see Simms out of TB next year, which means Grads at #2 makes sense. Maybe he's been lifting weights all offseason and can throw the ball further than 20 yards without it floating for 5 seconds.

              In a recent interview Simms said he doesn't have his timing or rythm back yet. Perhaps the team is beginning to wonder if he can rebound from the injury. If he can't, I don't see why he can't but I still have my spleen and I'm not an NFL QB so what do I know, then he has a pretty big cap number for a #3 QB.

              Either way, the Bucs need a long term answer at QB because they don't have one right now.

                HAHAHA. You don't regret us not drafting CJ? We'll see about that one down the road, but all I will say is that after seeing our picks unfold I would've given our entire first day for CJ (wouldn't mind keeping Black, though).

                I sure hope so, but I guess I'm not the CRAZY SIMMS HOMER you make me out to be, because I think Gruden seriously hates him and I have absolutely no hope left. I wish him the best in Detroit, New York or wherever he goes.

                    Just an FYI:

Pewter Report doesn't necessarily believe the Fox 13 report and we think the Tribune is just piggy-backing on the report without really studying at practice today.

                        Not necessarily. From the sounds of the PR interview with Simms he still has some work to do in terms of getting back to 100%. Grads getting reps with the 2nd during an OTA doesn't signal anything in my opinion.

                          What EtK says is true. Based on our first day picks(excluding Black) the talent we drafted is < than CJ.

                            That remains to be seen, but the Bucs weren't CJ away from being competitive. I wasn't in favor of the team trading away picks to get CJ, too many holes to fill. They addressed some of the positions I was hoping they would in the draft, we'll have to see how the young guys turn out.
