I wake up the next day and Darrent Williams was dead. Javon Walker never did anything again after that. Cutler makes a Pro Bowl and we trade him. Then we drop Marshall and Scheffler in the same off-season. Now we have no direction and two good young players on our team, 3 years later. You've done a great job, McD.
Just played Madden and Ernie Sims is an 87 overall with 88 speed. Championship.
I just realized that Ernie Sims was one of the few decent defenders the Lions have in that game. Damn you Mike Tolliver, 3rd round OLB turned DE with 86 speed 82 strenght 99 OVR who has so far amassed over seventy sacks in three seasons, why are you not real?!?!?!

I remember NFLDC don't tell anyone, but Charlie Casserly is a dope fiend
I image Lion on Eagle on Bronco pr0n is all the rage in certain interweb circles....
Rule 34, buddy.
Anyway, I have no doubt Sims will look better with real DL's protecting him and better LB's around him to cover up his mistakes. But he wasn't going to work out with the Lions, so this is good value for him imo.
Two things Sims always did which I could not stand:
- overpursuing plays to the inside and leaving wide open lanes for RB's to get to the outside and take it to the house
- flying reckelssly into every tackle after the play was already made, lighting up his own teammates as often as he did the ball carrier.
ProFootballFocus lists him as the very worst 4-3 OLB (with enough qualifying snaps to be ranked), giving him a -8.9 rating against the run which is 1.3 points worse than the second-worst ranked OLB.
He is still very fast and athletic but is a liability against the run and I believe he has one interception in his career. In comparison to the defense-leading role he was drafted for, he is a huge bust. But as I said, in a better overall defense with people to cover for him, he will probably look OK.
I like him as a guy a whole lot, great personality, not a troublemaker at all, so from that standpoint I wish him the best. As long as the Eagles don't ask him to do too much he will probably be OK, though with his small size, a few missed tackles and injuries will be inevitable.
