I might be an idiot
Let me see, Chris Simms loses a spleen, do I go with a rookie (Bruce Gradkowski) or a guy who has started in the NFL (Tim Rattay) before?
Oh, let me go with the rookie - and punt the season away.
So Rattay finally gets his chance and nearly rallies his hapless team against the Bears.
Look, Tim Rattay will never pass the eyeball test. He is not big and strong. He's not going to win any track meets.
But the guy is a quality quarterback - especially when you consider the alternatives.
