Simms Top 40 QB Countdown: #40-36

Episode Summary

It's the most wonderful time of the year!...except for Chris' Twitter mentions. We kick off the Simms Top 40 QB Countdown with a rookie and a few backups (who could become starters?). But first, we are joined by the winner of the Simms Perfect 10 contest from the Draft.

Episode Notes

(5:20) Simms Perfect 10 Last Man Standing: Rob, a teacher from Illinois, joins us to talk about how he nailed 7 of the Top 10 picks in the NFL draft, plus who he's betting on this coming season.

(14:50) Simms Top 40 QB Countdown: Chris explains the 4 categories that he focuses on for his rankings.

(20:50) #40 Drew Lock: "He has the talent to be in the Top 15. But he's not in the trust tree."

(27:20) #39 Kenny Pickett: "I have no doubt he is ready for the NFL." But is he a lock to beat out Mitch Trubisky?

(35:45) #38 Teddy Bridgewater: "He is the ultimate backup. I would never want him starting for my football team."

(43:15) #37 Gardner Minshew: "He has a leadership that is rare for a backup QB."

(48:50) #36 Tyrod Taylor: "A really good arm, good athlete, but too careful at times."

(56:40) What's more likely: Tua is benched for Teddy, or Danny Dimes is benched for Tyrod?
