Buccaneers | Simms questioned on toughness by Young

Wed, 23 Nov 2005 21:56:00 -0800

Katherine Smith, of the Tampa Tribune, reports Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Chris Simms was questioned about his toughness by Hall of Fame QB Steve Young. Young said, "I worry that he grew up in a much different atmosphere, [a] laissez-faire kind of atmosphere and I'm worried that he doesn't have the mental toughness to deal with the information overload that comes with the NFL." Simms father, former New York Giants QB Phil Simms, said, "Come to my house, live with me, and let's see how laissez-faire it is. I don't know how Steve Young lives his life, but I don't live mine that way. And I didn't raise my kids that way. You can say whatever you want about my son, but one thing that'll get me mad, and I'll stand in your face about it, is about toughness"
