Chris Simms is public enemy No. 1 for Miami Dolphins fans.

As a former quarterback for the Texas Longhorns and an eight-year pro, Sims’ career ended with 3,117 passing yards, 12 touchdowns, 18 interceptions, and a 58.1 percent completion rating. He recently took a jab at Tua Tagovailoa’s deep ball production for the Dolphins. Sims said the “whole world can throw the ball five yards over the middle.”

He stated that New Orleans’ Taysom Hill is a better quarterback than Tagovailoa.

His reason for this is the Saints ask Hill to do more downfield than Miami requires of Tagovailoa. The second-year quarterback for the Dolphins has more passing yards (3,759), touchdowns (23), and a better completion rating (67.4) than Simms for his career. Tagovailoa has totaled a passer rating of 100 or higher in five games, including four on Miami’s current winning streak.

He has shown this season he can drive passes downfield with accuracy.

Tagovailoa has the Dolphins at 6-7 with a chance of making the playoffs. Miami fans roasted Simms on Twitter for his thoughts.
