So Chris Simms no longer has a spleen. He played the entire 4th quarter of the Bucs' loss to the Panthers with his ruptured spleen bleeding all over his other organs. Nice work by the Tampa team doctors there: Aw, you just got your ribs banged up! Quit cryin' and get back out there! Chris Simms could have fucking died, and the doctors couldn't diagnose him. Maybe the Bucs should hire a physician who didn't get his M.D. from the Caribbean.
I don't want to take away from Chrissy's toughness — really, that was a, uh, gutsy performance — but let's not forget how much he was sucking before this happened. Two games, zero TDs, six interceptions. This potentially season-ending injury will be a nice distraction from how badly he was playing. Really, it's almost Culpepperesque. Chris should take this opportunity to force a trade, get a new contract, and singlehandedly sink the playoff hopes of some other team.
