NFL Rumors: Adam Schefter gives a more realistic opinion on Jamal Adams-cowboys rumors


Chris Simms gets it.

Simms, NFL analyst and former NFL quarterback, correctly ranks Carson Wentz ahead of Dak Prescott in its ranking of every starting QB in the league.

NBC Sports Philadelphia Dave Zangaro had both quarterbacks rated a little lower than Simms in his recent NFL quarterback rankings.

Simms, host of the Chris Simms Unbuttoned podcast and PFT Live on Pro Football Talk, has revealed the quarters from six to 14 on Monday morning, and he has Wentz at no. 6 and Prescott at no. 8, with Matt Ryan of the Falcons between the two.

“[The Eagles] are not in the playoffs last year, unless they have Carson Wentz at quarterback,” Simms said on the podcast. “I don’t even know where to start. It is one of the six quarters in football where you can put the team on his back and he can carry you, no matter who is there, what is the style of game you are playing, this kind of crime, you are, it doesn’t matter. It’s like the Cleveland Cavaliers with LeBron James. Awesome arm. Explosive, game-changing arm. In the pocket, he is as tough as there is in football. I think it is one of the most talented quarterbacks in football. I think it only goes to the top.”

Wentz and Prescott have both been starters since the beginning of their rookie of the year in 2016. Wentz is 32-24 with 97 touchdowns and 35 interceptions and a 92.7 passer rating, and Prescott is 40-24 with 97 Tds and 36 INTs and a 97.0 passer rating with a wider range of throwing weapons.

Here is what Simms says about Prescott: “Dak Prescott brings it all to the table: the leadership, the toughness. I love that aspect of him, and it was there that he and Matt Stafford I was really close, but I give Dak Prescott the advantage because of some of what he brings to the football team. There is a bit of an edge he brings. It is one of the best deep ball throwers in football. I don’t think he quite gets the credit he deserves for making off-schedule plays and throws. For me, Dak Prescott has it all. He is a quarterback of the franchise. He deserves to be paid off in a big way.”

In seven games against the Cowboys, Wentz is 3 to 4, but with 12 touchdown passes and two interceptions and a 99.4 passer rating — ninth-highest ever against the Cowboys.

In eight games against the Eagles, Prescott is 5-3 with eight TDs, seven INTs and an 83.5 passer rating.

Simms has not announced his top five, but Patrick Mahomes, Lamar Jackson, Deshaun Watson, Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers have not appeared on the list yet, so there’s your top five.

The top 10 so far includes Wentz, Prescott, Stafford, Matt Ryan and Cam Newton, who is currently unsigned.

Super Bowl winners Ben Roethlisberger, Tom Brady and Drew Brees are at n ° 14, n ° 15 and n ° 16.

Wentz and Prescott are the only NFC East Qfs in the top 20. Simms Daniel Jones of the Giants at no. 22 going into his second year, and the Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins at no. 39 40 to go in his second year.

Simms Nick Foles of the Door, the 2017 Super Bowl MVP, at no. 31, ahead of only nine quarters.

“[Wentz vs.] Nick Foles? They are not in the same stratosphere,” Simms said.

Simms has spoken at length about Wentz and many other Eagles focused on topics on the Eagle Eye podcast after the project.
