Loved this Omar Kelly response to Simms on this subject.
“He plays small in the pocket, he loses control of power throws down the field, and when teams took away some of those trick plays he couldn’t deliver. (VALID. LOOK AT THOSE DECEMBER GAMES FOR PROOF. DID MIKE McDANIEL ADJUST?)
“He’s the perfect fit for this offense. I would run those same things with Tua, too, but that doesn’t mean the 20 other guys in front of him can’t do it either, and then some other stuff as well.”
Let us stop right there because we already know Jones can’t do what Tagovailoa does.
IS TUA REALLY QB No. 21?
And neither can Arizona’s Kyler Murray (who lacks the accuracy and anticipation on throws), Detroit’s Jared Goff (no consistency), Tennessee’s Ryan Tannehill (no pocket presence), Minnesota’s Kirk Cousins (stat padder), New York Giants’ Daniel Jones (he had one good season), and Seattle’s Geno Smith (phenomenal 2023 performance, but that’s one solid season as well).
Counting Mac Jones, that’s seven quarterbacks I’d argue Tagovailoa should be rated higher than on everyone's list, even his biggest critic (which is Simms)."
