Jets | QB coach likes Matt Simms

Wed, 27 Aug 2014 11:42:33 -0700

New York Jets QB Matt Simms has shown a lot improvement and is throwing more consistent passes, according to quarterbacks coach David Lee. "Matt Simms has improved as much as any guy I think I can ever remember coaching," Lee said. "Early on, he threw so hard, our backs couldn't catch it. There was no touch. He developed some touch, and developed more touch. Right now, he is accurate." Simms is expected to receive significant playing time in the final preseason game, but it is not known if the team will keep three quarterbacks on the final roster.

Jets | Not naming starter for Week 14

Mon, 02 Dec 2013 09:36:15 -0800

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan is not naming a starting quarterback between QBs Geno Smith and Matt Simms for Week 14. "It's safe to say that we'll put the guys in who we think give us the best chance to be successful," Ryan said. "That's the way it is and will be moving forward." Smith had just 29 first-half passing yards and an interception in Week 13 against the Miami Dolphins before being benched in favor of Simms. Simms threw for 50 yards and an interception in the second half.

Fantasy Tip: It would be wise to stay as far away from this situation as possible.
