I'm curious. Based on what you have seen of Gradkowski so far, and based on what you saw of Chris Simms in the first three games this season, if Simms was 100% healthy today, who would you want starting at QB for this team? Simms or Gradkowski?

I'd trade Simms and Gradkowski and get Brett Favre.  ;) ;D

Give it up dude.

I thought MJ was the resident Gradkowski homer?

And I thgought ABuccs fan was the guy who posted these type of queries.

Grads did not play well enough for any reasonable Buc fan to say "Sell The House!"

agreed... grads played good enough for us to get the win but he was shaky at times. He is very lucky he didnt get picked a few times and got some lucky calls from the refs. Im behind grads 100 percent but he still has some improving to do.

Very intelligent post. If you're not interested in the topic, you can feel free to ignore the question.

im not saying that grads is the long term answer (give it another 10 weeks) but between him and simms, its not even close.

Its way too early for this. Two games, guys. Just two games.

I know.

Simms actually helped steer the Bucs to an NFC South banner, when the #1 went down.  Grads is 1-1.

And should have had three or four picks.

But I am eternally grateful for the win, don't deny that.

But it was the defense, and the running that helped out.  Grads was a King with legs.

No it isn't. I'm not saying who should be the long-term starter or who is the "future" of the team, I'm asking if TODAY Simms was back healthy, would you prefer to start him or Gradkowski?

  Neither. I want Dilfer back so we can all agree that we hate our QB.

I don't think there is much of a choice.  

When Chris comes back, he will probably will be undervalued because of his difficulties earlier this year.   If he signs next year, his agent would probably only agree to a one year deal, particularly due to the low value of production he showed in the first few games this year and the subsequent low priced contract.   He would hope for a great year and then hope to get the "over 10mil. guaranteed contract" he was shooting for this year.   And at that point, it would obviously be open to the highest bidder.   We probably wouldn't want him if he played poorly that year, or could obviously be outbid by others if he plays well.   Either way we could stand to lose substantially, having to start over developing a starter.   I don't want to lose Simms, but it is a tough spot.

Gradkowski, however, is on the payroll for some time and if he continues to play well, could be a good value for us and develop into a very good starter.  

But that isn't to say that McCown or someone else couldn't be the starter next year or further down the road.

but simms isnt going to be back for the rest of the year so this is pointless. Everyone knows this offense attributes grads strengths and this just isnt the system for simms.
