Mark sucks.

Geno is worse than sh1t.

 

McElroy couldn't throw a football through a wet paper bag. 

 

At least Simms has a cannon for an arm. He would at least make it amusing at times.

I don't think anyone is saying Simms will be great - but he has certainly earned getting a look against higher competition to see if he can do it.

He shouldn't be starting because he shredded the giants 4th or 3rd string defense. But he does deserve to make the squad. He has way more upside the Mcelroy.

I would agree that we should keep Simms. Probably not start him because of good performances against 3rd and 4th stringes. He does have an arm though. I would actually be OK with Geno, McElroy and Simms as QBs and let Sanchez go find personal fufillment somehwere else.

It would be foolish for us not to take him seriously. He is the only one not throwing INTs, not getting sacked, and not making terrible decisions. Worse thing hes done is be off the mark on a few throws. But even then, its been in space and not to the fatties on the other team.

We are paying Sanchez regardless, and since we don't have anything concrete we should hold onto him. Don't get me wrong, I would cheer if we cut him, but still. McElroy can go now. I wanted to see him get reps, but I am excited by simms.

I mean he had the best pass of the game ... Can we give the kid that? Beggers can't be choosers. Give the kid a shot he's all we have.

EXACTLY!!! He made some really nice throws, with incredible velocity. Having a QB who can throw the ball would be great. Sanchez/Geno/McElroy make me miss Favre.. and Favre is a cockgoblin that I couldn't care less about.

Yeah, I mean Ratliff did good against the 3's and never amounted to much - but that doesn't mean Simms will be the same. He could excel, or he could be Ratliff. We won't know until he gets a shot.

She is right. I was at the game tonight and Simms was by far the best qb. He has a higher ceiling than McElroy. Drop McElroy and keep Simms. If we put him on PS someone will pick him up... Possibly bellicheat....

I cannot believe that as Jets fans we are jinxing Simms with comparisons to the dude who's name rhymes with Batliff.

You sure you want that? I imagine Simms is the hope a lot of Jets fans are holding onto right now. If he ends up sucking ass, which he probably will seeing as how he's been fighting for the third string qb job, then I imagine all hope will be crushed. This board will turn into a board full of misery and despair. Either that or you'd guys would start calling for Mcelroy.

Dude, this board is already misery and despair. It doesn't get worse, no worries.

Man, my eyes are getting bad in my old age.  I thought you wrote "so many titties".  All worked up for ugatz.

LOL That's what I read too. And I have great eyes.

This board lives off of the misery and despair. No matter what choice is made we still complain and whine about it being the wrong decision. On that note give him a shot. Today, was the first game Geno started and the fIrst game we saw Simms, who looked better. Its that simple.

We lived through years and years of complete failures of teams, implosions, and head scratching incompetence.. but Simms not being Jesus is going to make us collapse? Yeah, I'm not thinking thats the case.

Let's be logical here. Simms played well. Geno did not. Give Simms a chance to start. You never know.

Nothing is more depressing then picking first in the draft.

I don't. I actually think it will get even funnier. Some of the best forum humor comes out when we are all trying to laugh through our blinding tears.

Sure there is. Picking twice in the first round, and taking a corner who couldn't wash two fours car, and then taking another D Lineman for the tenth year in a row.
