    They cut him in a salary move, really didn't even talk to him about restructuring.

    But yes, I agree, having Griese would be big for them right now. I don't think they should bench Simms because quite frankly they have no one else with real starter potential. Let the kid sink or swim. If he's not what they thought he was they'll have to figure it out in the offseason.
    But if they let him sink, they're throwing away a year of brooks,rice and barber who are getting older and slower each year

      No, he shouldn't be benched. He has a slow release, but this offense being poorly executed is mostly because of the OFFENSIVE LINE.

      Simms hasn't been getting pressured, but the OL hasn't opened any holes whatsoever.

      So Ward, yes Simms has had a bad start, but what about Cadillac Williams?

      Caddy has had 59 yards on 23 carries (2.56 yards per carry).

      Why don't you have a "Bench Caddy thread"?

        But if they put in Bruce Gratowski (who is currently ahead of Tim Rattay on the depth chart) they are going to start winning games?

        Good logic.

        By all likelyhood this season is shot, Simms will be gone next year, and the Bucs will go back into rebuilding mode. But they at least have to play the hand their dealt and hope for the best.

            I'm going to be brutally truthful here:

            The Bucs weren't going to make the playoffs anyway. Look at their schedule (they have 3 tough cold-weather games in the month of December alone, for crying out loud), and any chances they had rested on an early start - which is obviously out of the picture, thanks to injuries in the OL and an inability to execute.

            So they have to play Chris Simms.

            He's signed to a 1-year tender, as a RFA. They have to absolutely know what they have, or don't have, in him before the year ends and they have to make a decision on the position. No matter what, he has to start.
            Pugnacity, testosterone, truculence, and belligerence.

                    That's basically just a more-detailed version of what I already said.

                      Should the Dolphins bench Daunte?

                        Damn straight.

                        Not really because it is the same thing, the whole team played bad (minus Ronnie), benching one guy won't do it. Culpepper still isn't comfortable in Miami. He isn't used to the receveivers and he isn't used to the OL. I think people had to high of expectations for the Dolphins to start out the season. There are a good amount of new players and it will take time for them to gel. If people think the Dolphins will be like this all year long they are mistaken.

                          Great post.

                          BUT, Simms should get better. What if he has some really good games and turns it around?

                          Remember, he has faced 2 very good defenses, so give Baltimore and Atlanta some damn respect. Chris McCalister/Samari Rolle and then DeAngelo Hall/Jason Webster are 2 tough CB matchups back to back.

                          It is really early in the season, and I think Simms is much better than what he has shown in 2 really pathetic games this season.

                          It was obvious to many that Simms was a good QB in TC...now I know TC and games are totally different, but you can't deny his talent.

                          Not to mention the running game hasn't been established yet. The OL just isn't opening holes, so it isn't all Simms fault. Once Caddy gets going I would like to see what Simms can do then.

                            Nice way to start a contract season - if he keeps going at this pace he'll be paying the Bucs just to hang around

                              Chris Simms is bad enough he should be benched, that being said our alternatives are not very bright either. Truth of the matter is the entire offense is garbage and until you fire Gruden/hackett/Muir this franchise will have many many many more 4-12, 5-11 seasons. Which is too bad because I really thought we might have had something but I was fooled.

                                This sucks, Simms was my prediction for sleeper this year. I guess Ill just be startin Culpepper all year in my FF league.
