    Wow you played against him?

    The best player I ever played against was Chris Simms.

      Yeah. Ran a wheel route against me. I was playing corner. Needless to say, I was ******* scared. hahaha.


      I also went one on one against Amakamura in a passing league. Real whiner, but very, very good.

        Another stellar Brad Childress draft pick.
        Childress wasn't a bad personnel/draft guy at all, not sure where you're getting that from. Terrible coach but he was a good talent evaluator.

          Wow. That's pretty cool. I remember being amazed at Simm's arm. I played DB too, and to me, it wasn't the smart qb that scared me, it was the guy with the rocket arm. He made you play deeper, and made you question yourself and your coverage after he fits it in on blanket coverage on you.

            When I was in high school, our DC mainly played man and cover 2. In passing leagues, it was mostly bump man and bump cover 2. I was matched up with him the whole time since I was the fastest corner(at the time I may add. This was like 5-6 years ago). Boy was it a challenge.

              Not nearly as epic as 2005 with Troy Williamson at #7 and Erasmus James at #18 when they could have grabbed DeMarcus Ware and Aaron Rodgers with those two picks.

                Except for the part where Childress wasn't even there in '05.

                  Considering the Vikings didn't run a 3-4 and Culpepper was coming off a 39 TD, 11 INT season, I can see why the didn't pick those guys. And yeah, Williamson/James were picks when Tice was the coach. Chilly took over in 2006.

                    Yeah most high schools run that. It's where I developed my disdain for Cover 2. One year we had a coach who ran the 46 and a 3-4 hybrid, that's where I fell in love with those schemes. God I miss putting on the pads.

                    That's what makes football so special. Anyone can grab some guys and get a game of bball going. Ditto for soccer.

                    But you can't do that with football. You can't replicate the pads, the playbook, etc.

                      Shhh. Facts aren't needed. Everyone's having fun pretending that every part of Childress' job was done badly.

                        Our high school ran a 3-4 cover 2 and man schemes. Basically a less complex version of the Steelers. It was cool.

                        I would give up ANYTHING to be able to play football or baseball again. I miss it so much.

                          I remember coach told us then that we'll never truly appreciate these years where we get to put on the pads until it's too late. Being a dumb immature kid, I paid him no attention.

                          I understand what he meant now. I wish I took it more seriously.

                            I got hurt my sophomore year, missed my junior year, and came back my senior year after I got surgery. It was tough and I was real timid to start hitting. Besides that, I wasn't the athlete I was before I got hurt. I just got lazy once I got hurt and didn't take my rehab too seriously. I regret it.

                              A slipped disc in my back killed any chance I had of playing college ball. I was never an athlete. I had to rely on smarts even then.

                              What was nice about high school ball then, I'm not sure if it changed now, but as a DB, you could basically rape the WR and not get a flag thrown. That was good times.

                              But yeah, a 5 11" 160 lb CB/FS. Not exactly the most physically imposing guy in the world.
