Phil Simms joins pile on parade of former NFL QBs

20140226-163814.jpgThe annual rites of spring are upon us. The NFL combine, pro days, and an endless stream of analysis by former players on upcoming draftees. Each year it’s a toss up as to whether former players will offer effusive praise or scathing criticism of that year’s draft class. This year, it seems that former NFL QBs have opted for the scathing criticism option.

First we had Ron Jaworski say that he wouldn’t draft Johnny Manziel in the first three rounds, and now Phil Simms has joined the Hatin’ Ass Former QB Club. Appearing on radio, Simms had the following to say about this year’s QB draft class:

He also went on to say that Geno Smith would be the best QB in this draft:

It’s only a matter of time until Trent Dilfer or Terry Bradshaw steps up and becomes the next member of the Hatin’ Ass Former QB Club. Personally, I can’t wait.

    I will one day have all of my sports knowledge judged well or harshly based on my sky-high expectations for Teddy Bridgewater.

      You’re wrong

  • cabbage

    At least 1/3 of the teams in the NFL NEED a QB. These guys may or may not be HOF worthy, BUT they have a great chance of being better than those currently on the roster.

    Manziel to the Browns.

    And Jaworski said weeden would be rock solid… goes his theory. These analysis are bums . Pay me to make theories i bet mine will be wrong too

      I know Bortles will be good. I just know it!


        I agree with you on that. Bortles was very interesting to watch at UCF. I think he will be a better QB than Sam Bradford. Heck why don’t the Rams draft him. Oh sorry but they say their not drafting a QB in the first round. Bad mistake in my opinion.

          Allen, the Rams can’t afford the luxury of drafting developing a QB, being in the same division as the Seahawks, 49ers, and Cards. Bradford, while not an all-pro is an NFL starting QB. The Rams need more OL and WR starters, right now to become competitive within their own division. Right now they are a lock for 4th place in the NFC West and out of the playoffs.

        Bortles might struggle if he is forced to start this year. But, if given time to develop (at least 1 year on the sideline), I agree he could be rock solid.

        A lot depends on what team you end up on. I pity the poor QB that gets drafted by Jax. The Texans, on the other hand, have enough offense already in place, to help make a rookie look good.
