This may be the first time I actually agree with anything that Duemig's said but just a few weeks ago Jon Gruden said that as a coaching staff they had discussed starting Gradkowski at the beginning of the season. He also said that he asked for feedback from some of the veteran players to see what they thought about the possible change at QB. So someone please explain how a few weeks later, we sign SImms to a two year deal worth $10M??? Unless this is indeed a sign and trade deal, it makes no freaking sense to me. Gruden is an awful evaluator of talent and someone needs to stop this guy before he burries this team with bad decisions.

LOL

Sooo...If Simms leaves, it's proof that players hate Gruden, and if he stays, it's proof that he's horrible at evaluating talent.

IMO Grads is still the future of this team. Gruden went with his #2 QB after Simms went down for the year.  You dont go with the #2 rookie QB with the thoughts '' If he doesnt play well and we dont win I must pull him'' You go in knowing you will probably lose a lot and you stick with him hoping he learns all he needs to know by next season. Dont forget Grads didnt look bad in a few games. It was the WR's dropping the 4th most passes in the league. That led to Grads losing confidence and trying to do too much.

Once you go to the rookie/ #2 QB the probability is high for an unsuccessfull season.

The one constant in the NFL:

The media and the fans for a large part are the least important and most insignificant factors in the running of an NFL franchise successfully.  Any coach or player that listens to them for direction will soon be out of coaching, or no longer playing in the NFL.


This truism is more factual today than at anytime in NFL history.



I am curious how fans became this way??  Could it be just another failure of our educational system? Is it an overall dislike of those that actually have accomplished something from those that haven't?  It remains one of life's great mysteries to me. So much anger and hatred towards the team you are supposedly a fan.   Nothing wrong with being disappointed but this constant character assassination is absurd, disturbing, just a little bit scary, and perhaps even frightening.

It really is just a game!!

He's the Big Dogg, He's on the porch. He talks lot's of sh%t about Gruden but has he ever confronted Gruden face to face? I mean they are the #1 sports station in Tampa Bay, how come Dumig the self proclaimed king of Sports Radio never directly calls him a liar or bad talent evaluator, etc....?  Because the Big Dogg is infact a Big P#$&y when it comes rigth down to it.  Plus it's Jon Gruden right to discuss starting QBs , that's his job.

I think that Gruden is going to be fine withSimms. I mean if you was a head coach and you saw your starter playing as poor as simms was the first two games after showing so much promise what would you do?

Plus i think with the way he played in that second half aginst the Panthers earn enough respect from Gruden that he could run this offense and is a leader. He gave his spleen just so he could quite the critics and the fans of his poor play and having no toughness as a player in the NFL.

I think he did just that. No one ever agian will question is toughness and his ability as long as he plays good

Gruden and Hackett are going to coach him up, that's for sure. You know I like Simms as an individual but haven't yet been sold on him as the answer for this team's QB problems. I'm beginning to think that him spending the last 13 games of this season on the bench may have been the best thing that ever happened to him. He was struggling (that's an understatement) early on and he ended up losing his starting job not due to being benched but due to injury. If he applied himself and used that time wisely, he will be a much better player for it.

One thing for sure: unless the Bucs pre-determine that they're going another route at QB, Simms will get more PT in the 2007 pre-season than he did in 2006.

Yeah, but neither of us know if he has an 'Alex Smith 'like progression, obviously he's not the 1st overall pick, but it's possible is all I'm saying.
