Former mediocre Texas and Tampa Bay QB Chris Simms, now a NFL “analyst” for NBC Sports, clearly despises Alabama. In the lead up to the NFL draft, Simms laughably left Jerry Jeudy out of his top 5 available WRs:

Of course, Henry Ruggs III ended up being the first WR taken and Jeudy the second. Now esteemed “expert” Simms has decided that Jarrett Stidham is better than Tua Tagovailoa.

“(Stidham is) more talented than Tua,” Simms said, via “(Tua) is a creation of Alabama. You don’t think Jarrett Stidham, or like Justin Herbert would have set the world on fire if they got to play with four, first-round receivers and two, first-round tackles? … “I could be off on Stidham,” Simms later noted. “He could be way greater than what I say, way off. I am not saying my list is in stone, but my list has been pretty good the last few years and I certainly like the potential of Jarrett Stidham, what I saw in college and he was very impressive in the preseason. The fact that New England likes him, makes me like him too.”

Look Chris, we get that you are probably still mad about the 2009 national championship, but you’re just making an ass of yourself at this point. Jealousy is very unbecoming.
