Now Commenting On:

Darryl Slater has a very good in-depth article on the for the Star-Ledger that Matt Simms is making the most of his opportunity and working hard to learn as much as he can while he can with the Jets.

Teammates said he is one of the last players to leave the complex at night, around 7:30 or 8.

This extra film work – and the dedication it demonstrates to coaches – is important for undrafted players, who are essentially disposable. Jets wide receiver David Nelson, who entered the league as an undrafted rookie in 2010, said organizations often decide in the first three or four months if an undrafted player can help them.

Since the Jets didn't name Simms the starter after last week's disappointing game by Geno, it might seem  like a long shot that Simms will get a chance to start a game between now and the end of the season.  Of course, anything is possible.  Either way, Simms knows the opportunity he has been afforded and is doing everything he can to take advantage of it.
