Chris Simms, the son of NY Giants great Phil Simms, is being thrown in as a possible pick up for the back up quarterback role for the Dallas Cowboys.
The 27-year-old Tampa Bay Bucs back up quarterback is in his fifth NFL season. His best year was in 2005, when he started 11 games, throwing for 10 touchdowns and 7 interceptions. He showed flashes of his pop that year, with a 61 percent completion percentage but he couldn’t hold onto his job after flopping the next year. Since then, he hasn’t seen much playtime.
There is one thing I like about Simms other than his genes and it is this: His best game of his career was against the Washington Redskins, when he threw for three touchdowns and 279 yards, with a 119.8 quarterback rating.
There is also some attention being paid to Richard Bartel, the third string quarterback currently on the roster. Bartel graduated from Tarleton State, a school I have never heard of. I hear the kid has a good arm, the best on the team, but his accuracy needs improvement.
So, with that said, do the Cowboys need Chris Simms?
