Every year Chris Simms has a completely different take on pretty much....   everything.

 

Especially at quarterback.  
 

He almost always goes against conventional wisdom.   And I’m ok with that.   But sometimes I get a sense he's different just so that he can stand out in a crowd.   Maybe it’s just me?
 

I’ll see if I can try to find similar articles about QBs in previous years.

Yeah he does this every year, my list would be:

1. Lawrence

2. Wilson

3. I flip flop on Lance and Fields, I think that is even (3/4.)

5. Jones

He’s a contrarian for the sake of being a contrarian. I think people just get bored around this time too. After awhile there’s usually an established consensus on most things; who the best QB is, who is going number 1 overall, who the best defensive player is, positional rankings, etc...

 

Sometimes I think people get bored with the consensus and just go against the grain to create néw content. How can you seriously have Kellon Mond over Justin Fields and Trey Lance?

Sims has been pretty good actually. So good in fact that I won't judge him on this until it plays out over the coming years. But as a general sense I'm not yet convinced on Wilson, but I do agree that Mond seems a bit underrated. One thing I like about Sims is that when he is wrong though, he doesn't make excuses. He just admits he was wrong. But when it comes to ranking QBs over the last few years he's been pretty good.

He’s an expert at evaluating QBs not one of the media talking heads that all say the same thing. I bet you thought he was crazy in 2018 when he ranked Lamar Jackson and Josh Allen above mayfield Darnold and Rosen. Or last year when he had Herbert above Tua.

His criticisms of Fields mechanics are warranted which is why he ranked him so low. Wilson is the most accurate QB and throws the prettiest ball so it’s not out of the realm of possibility that he’s better than Lawrence.

His comps are

Wilson -> Mahomes, Rodgers

Lawrence -> Luck, Elway
