I agree, DTG, Gruden/Allen's job is to always pursue players better than the ones they have. Like 'ol Brantley said John McKay told him years ago: my job is to always try to find someone better than you to play your position. Simms needs to know that he is not given anything, and I think that he does. If he was unreplaceable, he would have been paid Manning-type money.
