Chris Simms top 40 QB list

Recommended Posts

 

so according to Chris Simms list of the top 40 QBs going into the season, we apparently have 3 of the top 40.

#4:  Andrew Luck 

#12: Phillip Rivers

#31: Jacoby Brissett

 

Anyone else confused

Jacoby too high.  I know Simms had Tua at 40.  I’d take Tua over Jacoby.  In fact, I’d wager 99.9% of the football community would.

kinda, but also kinda not. Andrew Luck is top 5 if he would come back tomorrow. 
 

But, I’m not sure why you would list him, because... he ain’t comin back.

Yeah, it’s weird to put Andrew there.

Everyone would. That doesn't mean he is a better QB than JB at this moment.

 

The guy is recovering from dislocated hip. Have to see him in action.

 

Definitely shouldn't have Luck listed. So I guess Rivers moves to 11, JB to 30 and Tua to 39.

This is probably for this coming season only. It's only natural for a 5 year vet with experience starting in the league to be more highly ranked than a rookie who might or might not play this year. I would take Tua over Jacoby long-term too, but I don't think it's unreasonable to think Jacoby might give you better chance to win now.

Misread this as “Simms tops 40 QB list”, thought I’d fallen into a very weird alternate reality for a second.

Out of curiosity, who were the top 3?

It makes more sense when we realize what's happening. Simms put out his Top 40 list last season. That list had QBs ranked 1 through 40.

 

This year he is slowly revealing his NEW list, but he's only revealed numbers 39 (Haskins) and 40 (Tua) so far.

 

The rest of the list (numbers 1 through 38) is still showing who he had listed for last season.

I think you might have seen last year’s countdown...because he just started this year’s countdown today...and is currently only at #38.

Obviously when Simms played the players weren't protected from concussions like they are today. :D

A rookie with no NFL experience and serious injury concerns, who is currently hurt, gives you a better chance to win right now than the guy who came in to back up Luck and went .500 in his starts.

 

OK then. 

 

I know there's a certain frustration with Brissett because of how the second half went but that's absolutely insane.

Tua is not injured hes cleared to play if they want him to

 

i think he will be a good starter and not a backup caliber player, but thats just me

I think Tua will be an excellent starter, but the question is who's the better starter right now.  It's a practical tautology that the only guy to win NFL games gives you a better chance right now to win NFL games.

 

 

There is a tendency to just assume that prospects will pan out,, and that there's no room for high floor players like Brissett.  We just saw firsthand that that's not remotely the case, but the delusion persists.

 

And there's a big difference between not being injured and not being hurt.  Lower body injuries like the one Tua suffered don't ever really seem to go all the way away.  That kind of injury has killed plenty of other QB prospects, which adds to the risk a team is taking if they hand the reins to Tua before he proved he can be effective despite the pain and loss of mobility.

Any list that has Brissett is a bad list.  Also why even go past the total number of teams and rank backups who you rarely see against starters?  And on top of that it's bad enough that it's Simms writing this stuff.

 

Of all the media outlets I feel like NBC has the worst analysts and general football knowledge.  And Simms is a big part of that.

 

For the Colts there are two things in play this year...

 

First, how well can Rivers perform with all the pieces around him.  He's got an above average group across the board.  I would think pretty well is the answer but age is undefeated and he's got other competing interests now.  Even if he performs well and we see a deep playoff run what then?  He is obviously a short term answer.

 

Second, does Eason have the right stuff to be considered as the QB of the future.  Honestly the team doesn't know the answer to this right now.  They took a shot on a guy they liked, now will get a full year look at him to see how hard he works, how he leads, and whether he can process quickly enough.  

 

Those two things need to be answered this year and the good thing here is with Reich and his offensive coaches I would think they will evaluate them well.

I think that was meant for Top 40 on Colts roster last two years:

 

1) Andrew Luck

2) Philip Rivers

3) Chad Kelly

4) Jacob Eason

40) Jacoby Brissett

Be surprised if Rivers is top 10, tbh.

 

Now if we are talking about after the season, I think he will be top 10. Probably be right in that 10-15 range to start, I would guess.

Brady could be top 5, or he could be injured halfway through the season from Arians’ offensive scheme. 
 

Definitely see Mahomes and Jackson as 1 and 2 though.

Most people know who Chris Simms is simply because his father is Phil Simms. Phil has talked about him a lot on CBS broadcasts during games even. You have 32 starters in the NFL, so Brissett being rated 33rd for example isn't far fetched because he is a great backup. I can see Rivers around 10th or so, 10-12 in that area anyway.

i figured he was related to phil but i made i still made it this far having never heard of chris.  googled him and his career didnt look note worthy 

 

Phil is obviously well known and knowledgeable, i just dont like his voice lol.  he is so monotone it brings down the excitement of watching a game for me

This is not true. Everyone has Brissett as a top 40 QB or top backup here. We just hated how Kelly wasn't given a chance when Brissett was injured and the league figured him out. The only people oblivious to this were Reich, Ballard, and certain posters here who think Reich and Ballard always make the correct decision.

 

Brissett is a good backup, I'll give him that. That's all he is though.

Please use the proper pronouns 

      There are some here that have posted that JB is not a top 100 QB in the league and there are others like me who had no problem with the way CK was handled

    • There's good and bad in every crowd. Whether people be classified by hobby, sport, activism, race, religion,...you name it. There are good and bad in each of them. But if youd like to support the bashing of an entire group of people rather than only the individual perpetrators then you all are more than welcome to enjoy the view from your imaginary moral high ground. 
    • Seriously?   If that’s all hunters did, you wouldn’t have all the bashing of them that there is.....   Come on now....
    • How'd you all figure out that no one ate the meat from those animals from that picture?    It's funny how people like to bash hunters when they fund much of the wildlife here in the states, contribute to economies around the world, and feed many poor in the areas they hunt.    
    • It's obvious you don't know much about hunting, here, or in other parts of the world. Not all hunters, but most are conversationalist. And rarely is meat wasted. Even in safari hunts in Africa, rarely does anything go to waste. Meat is normally dressed and prepped immediately, and either eaten at the camp, on the reserve by locals, or sent to market. So it's not for no other reason. And while I'm sure that some hunts are "lazy", most are active "stalk". And even in lazy hunts, the meat is not wasted.    It's hilarious how most folks will pearl clutch at hunting, yet order their fast food chicken sandwich or hamburger which is made from animals that never had a chance to run wild. I guess mass systemic killing is better than rifle or bow? And most don't have a clue that hunting is needed for population control in many areas. As long as the animal is not endangered, and as long as there is no waste, folks shouldn't have an issue. If they do, they need to go vegan or loosen up on their pearls.
    • A customer of mine , a woman, owned a hoagie shop locally.  A well-known establishment that had success for 50 + years.  The owner died , and left business to his MUCH younger wife.  She proceeded to travel the world shooting everything in site.  Soon, the restaurant wall were covered with pictures of her smiling face next to DEAD big, beautiful animals.  Lions, Tigers, bears (oh my! Haha), deer and elk of all types, etc, etc, etc.  Beautiful animals, dead for no other reason than to hang on a wall.:  Many are shot in enclosed areas with high power , from a distance.   Well, business fell off the face of the earth and she eventually sold. Karma!   I always say “impress me, hunt with a bowie knife, or stay on the couch.”     I just don’t “get it.”
