Phil Simms interesting point on rookie quarterbacks Dan Leberfeld

A lot of rookie quarterbacks have been thrust into action the last few years, and have done pretty well.

CBS analyst Phil Simms feels the offensive coordinators have become better at “hiding” rookie quarterbacks shortcomings.

“We all know that the NFL systems make it easier for these guys to make a transition into the league because there’s really so many ways to work at it and to hide them,” Simms said. “That kind of goes unnoticed.

“You can hide the quarterback now in the game because of the screens, spreading it out, maybe run it a little, giving him easy throws… There are a lot of young (quarterbacks) in the league that are having success.”
