Simms Believes Stafford Will Make Jump to Elite Status

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/behindthemic/#/nfl/2012/02/09/020912.btm_crisphil_qb

Cris Collinsworth and Phil Simms sat down to discuss which young quarterbacks they believe are the likeliest to make the jump to "elite" status.

Collinsworth brings up Newton, while Simms doesn't hesitate to nominate Matthew Stafford. After watching the video my immediate reaction was, "tell me something I didn't already know." (I personally believe throwing for 5,000 yards and 41 td's makes Stafford elite already). Still, Stafford will need the Lions brass to continue to place the right pieces around him.

Which leads me to the poll question...

ROAR.
