He turned down a long term deal from the Bucs with $10 million guaranteed.

Hindsight is 20/20 but that's a ton of dough guaranteed.  I'm sure his agent sold him hard on taking the 1 year deal given what he obtained for Brees and Pennington.

Ouch. That one hurts for Chris.

In a selfish way, I'm glad he turned it down.

How foolish of him. Oh well, hope he can command a better deal elsewhere next year with a different team, but I'm sure no team will offer that much in guarentee money.

He might have to wait til '08 to get his payday if Gradkowski solidifies the QB position. He'll have to prove himself to another team before they break the bank on him. But he has shown that he can be successful and frankly, alot of teams are in a desperate need of a good QB that they might take a chance on Simms.

He's definitely going to have to prove himself again to command that kind of money.  He put enough bad stuff on tape in 3 games to raise doubts.

Well, he obviously thought he would be able to get it done.  He had the confidence.

He will be gone next year, one way or another.

I wish him nothing but the best.

Exactly. 

So many pundits suggested it was BRUCE ALLEN that was SMART by NOT offering up big $$$$ to Simms.  Now we find out that Bruce was ready to sell the farm (so to speak) to get him long term.

All this proves is that we only THINK we know everything that is going on.
