Simms: Jameis Winston Ranks As 10th-Best QB

December 3rd, 2015

jameis 1130Joe’s glad to know that savvy, intelligent and knowledgeable NFL analysts see the greatness in America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston.

Former Bucs QB Chris Simms might be the best analyst you don’t hear much about. Simms calls games as a color man for CBS TV, in addition to college football games, and he’s an in-demand guest on many national radio shows. Plus, he does quality work for Bleacher Report. Joe loves that Simms is an anti-stats guy, preferring film over spreadsheets.

In the Bleacher Report video below, Simms serves up his rankings of NFL QBs. Jameis checks in at No. 10, ahead of Matt Ryan, Sunday’s opponent. Marcus Mariota is No. 18.

Also of note, still on the Buccaneers’ 2015 schedule is Jay Cutler, ranking at No. 7 overall. Simms argues Cutler might be the most consistent QB of this NFL season. It’s hard to argue against that. Cutler has had one of the biggest revivals in recent memory, though he has plenty of time left to melt down.

Enjoy the video below. And be proud, Bucs fans.

    Good to see Chris Simms being successful as an analyst. I didn’t know. I’m not sure if I agree with him that Jameis is the 10th best QB in the NFL. Perhaps he is. Without thinking much about it I’d put Jameis in the top 15.

  2. CreamsicleBananaHammock Says:

    Obviously Simms doesn’t know that Jameis threw interceptions during training camp, which we all know puts Winston in the bottom tier of NFL QBs.

  3. Couch Fan Says:

    But Simms never made it to the Super Bowl or a pro bowl. He obviously doesnt know anything about football (Sarcasm).

    I I feel like a proud mama:)! Think where he’ll be in a few years. Lots to be excited about bucaroos!!

  5. Waterboy Says:

    I’m probably in the minority but I really liked Simms potential as a QB. He had a really good arm and nice touch on his long ball but never really fit Gruden’s 3 step dropback dink and dunk offense.

  6. D-Rome Says:

    I feel the same way as you, Waterboy. Chris was never going to be his father but I don’t think his skill set was as terrible. I’m not sure if he really got a fair shake under Gruden. Gruden had a tendency to *create* QB controversies while in Tampa. Even during our Super Bowl year it sure looked like he wanted to bench Brad Johnson in favor of Rob Johnson during training camp.

    I respect Chris Simms so much as a player. The man literally gave up his spleen for the love of the game. I’m happy to see he’s having a nice post-football career as an analyst, and I look forward to seeing more of him on TV.

    D-Rome. I bring the rob Johnson thing up a bunch too when people are overly praising Gruden. Don’t get me wrong but he was usually wrong on that position. Gradkowski, loved that guy, really there is your career back up. That and the alstott thing. I have a hard time not getting mad about the alstott/Gruden thing. Mike was on his way to canton. Still love going back and watching him run. I know I’m way off track but I often wonder about his and the teams fate if his head and Jerivicus’s knee had not collided in the second game following our super bowl.

    I was just commenting a few days ago that Jameis is already a top 10 NFL QB. Looks like Mr Spleenless agrees with me.
