He should definitely be an "open book" kind of guy for McDaniels to teach. I thought he was very much a "Cassel" type of talent (before all the stupid franchise tag and bidding war).

Smart kid, teachable, just never had "it" up to this point.

Definite upgrade, but not too much to scare Jay or hurt his fragile ego. Nicely done.

Schefter:

Broncos continue signing spree with Simms, Arrington

Posted: Denver started the week with a quarterback controversy and is ending it with a new quarterback. Free-agent quarterback Chris Simms has reached agreement with the Broncos on a two-year contract. He will be insurance for starting quarterback Jay Cutler, whose name emerged last week in trade talks.

Simms hasn’t signed yet but soon will and he will have gone from Tampa to Tennessee to Denver.

Finally, Denver signed free agent running back J.J. Arrington to a four-year contract. The deal was signed last week, the league rejected the contract’s language, but it was redone Wednesday. Arrington is a Bronco.

Good signing... Hopefully he'll never see the field

Wonder if this means Phil Simms has to talk nice about us now?

Solid move. Aside from the circus this past weekend I am very pleased with the Free Agent moves.

McDaniel's and company continue to do an excellent job in free agency. Chris Simms isn't going to throw darts vertically, down the field, or will teams back from 21 down, but he's smart, coachable, and a great game manager for this offense.

More important is that he can help potty train Jay. Simms went through hell in Tampa with Gruden and seen a star fall in Tenn. He's also got his father's experience to back up his own travels in the NFL.

Hopefully he can be the big brother that Jay needs. Not just an X & O dicussion, but a NFL life tutor for Jay.

Great pick-up.

I can't remember the last time this board was happy about our back-up QB. Shanahan routinely poo-poo'd the spot, and we got very lucky to avoid injury.
(Ask New England.)

It's nice to have a guy who could come in and not only win a game or two, but who's shown flashes of upside to the extent that all hope wouldn't be lost as far as long-term success.

Excellent move, and again... this follows the pattern of what McD's been doing.

Maybe you and Cutler could get together and just have a good cry about life.

All of these are added bonuses as well. Imagine growing up learning about N.Y. media circus from Phil Simms. He was in a pressure cooker QB controversy at Texas and was both immensely popular and unpopular, depending on the week. Oh and he recovered from suffering a ruptured spleen in a game.

If anyone can teach Jay to suck it up, and learn a little bit of media savvy it's this guy.

Probably when we drafted Jay Cutler.

Then there were those CSU homers who honestly thought this guy was the future of the franchise:



So it hasn't been that long.
