Vengeance is Mine!
Karma has finally come around and avenged my grievances. So, for unseating Major Applewhite, for that horrible, horrible, horrible Big 12 Championship game against Colorado, and for the many hair-pulling, vomit-inducing moments, Chris Simms
finally got his.
Although he was projected to be drafted higher than Redding and Dockery, and as high as late in the first round, Simms became a major plot twist of the draft as team after team passed over him. Oakland and Houston both passed over Simms five times, and he was not selected until more than nine hours after the draft began, when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected Simms with the 97th overall pick and the final pick of the third round.
"This is a productive college quarterback," Buccaneers head coach Jon Gruden said. "He's very excited about the next step, and I think he's very eager to prove to all the draft analysts that he was worthy of going higher."
That's right, and to to put a cherry on the sundae, he's going to Tampa where Kriston can continue to follow his career, defend him against detractors, and sing his praises into the howling torrent of evidence to the contrary...
