Sims takes a shot at Herm
Sims blasted Chiefs head coach Herm Edwards, the former Bucs defensive backs coach, for creating what Sims perceives as a negative environment in Edwards' first year in Kansas City in 2006.
"Some coaches just believe the more negative you are ... You don't have a team of 28 guys trying to get traded for nothing," Sims said. "Every starter there is trying to get out of there. ...Ask (quarterback) Trent Green (traded to the Miami Dolphins) about it.
"You can just look at the numbers, look at the morale, you tell me.
"We had the 32nd (ranked) defense when I got there, it was 32nd for years. Obviously I'm not the only person out there.
"I'm here. These coaches are great. It's totally different. Very positive here. It's time for a new lease, time to play."
