Not Simms related but in Bucs related news I heard an interesting opinion last night regarding Coach Gruden.

The sports reporter on ESPN Radio said he was the leading candidate at Alabama. I just never connected Gruden with that job.

I thought Saban was the lead candidate?

saban's the lead candidate, but since he's turned it down so many times already, they'll probably have to get a new leading candidate.

I was only listening with the radio on as background noise basically so I don't know if they mentioned Coach Saban or not. It was the middle of the night show that is on 610 where the guys are just basically talking to each other.

If they don't get OL help, it won't matter who they sign.

I like the signing. He is better than anyone they have and has a lot of potential. Our o-line is very young so it will be hard for Simms for another year or two, but I still think he can lead this team to the playoffs soon. Bucs draft Calvin Johnson and they'll be very scary with him, Michael clayton, and Maurice Stovall at Wideouts:marionaner:

wow. I think Gruden just signed his deathwish.

Simms just seems to choke in every big game. I hope they have a legit backup in place to relieve him of this...Cause Applewhite doesn't have his back now.

gruden didn't make this deal, he's never liked simms.

The Glaziers like him then? They buddies with Phil?

I've Kind of wondered myself why this Bucs teams has struggled in the post Dungy era. SuperBowl aside.

because, dungy's players are gone, and gruden has been bringing in his players, and they all suck. some horrendous free agent signings. gruden falls in love with players, and holds grudges against others. it's pretty well-known around here how gruden doesn't like mike alstott. see: http://www.givemiketheball.com
