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

    • I make perfect sense, he isnt top 10 by any means he is 25th best, I didnt make the list referenced someone who among many who had Tucker first as an example (Didnt think it was that hard to decipher sorry if anyone else didnt get it).   Sorry but any kicker in modern NFL who goes 78.6 % on PAT and 68% on Fg's during an entire season isnt kicking for anyone or animal i care about, to say otherwise is kinda insane i.m.o. and can't say ignore it but it occurred, if Tucker ever falls off like that I'd say the same BUT if and buts are facts, just saying.
    • I've never had an actual job under a real boss in my life tbh. I have technically managed pokemon teams where we travel across the U.S. and play competitively for prizes, college scholarships, and other stuff though. Right now, I manage blackjack teams where I teach basic strategy and card counting and we go into casinos to win money sometimes (just a small operation, but I have to be sure everyone is good enough since it's a business). We aren't going to the casino right now because of the coronavirus.   Not technically the boss of a big company, but I was responsible for teams and still am winning money. I have two friends that play on fanduel with me, and we build lineups for baseball, basketball, and football. We've transitioned into other sports as well like golf, mma, and nascar. An interesting example here is I won $300 in a Colorado tournament for the NFL Draft on fanduel. We used a salary cap to predict who would go at each position and we had to get one of the first 4 players at each positions to qualify for points. You get 6, 3, 2 and then 1 for 1-4 respectively. You also got to pick a team you thought would trade the most. I picked the 49ers because they were cheap and I heard rumors they would trade down and also trade some players.   I didn't even let my mom cook for me as a kid as soon as I figured out I could make my meals more to my liking. Very picky eater, and she didn't cook for me exactly how I wanted. That helped me be more independent as an adult though (or it started it), so I guess it's a good thing in the end.   I honestly can't work with people very well, and I'm bipolar, so the two don't mix. That's why I do things where it's easy to get people to listen to me and I enjoy that don't feel like work.
    • Does that include managing a large team of people you're responsible for?  Because if it does, I really respect you for that.     I've accepted jobs/promotions before where I was the #1 guy managing large groups of people, and I absolutely hated it.  It's just too much stress.  Constant meetings.  Never-ending paperwork.  Endless hours.  Phone calls at every hour of every day about every little thing from every employee you're in charge of...   I guess I'm not a Peyton Manning.  I'm more of a role-player.  I'm the workhorse-do-everything-RB like Edge that makes Peytons' job easier without having to deal with the stress/demands of being Peyton Manning.  
    • I agree, it looks like Kimbrel isn't the answer. We are going to have to do it by bullpen by committee.
    • Yeah, Kimbrel sure looks snake bit. Gotta be tough after so much success!
