Former NFL quarterback Chris Simms is a weekly guest on The Steve Sandmeyer Show. He watches film of every team to prepare him for his work at Bleacher Report and as a color analyst for CBS. He’ll be on the call this weekend when the Cincinnati Bengals visit the Tennessee Titans. As usual, Steve, Bill and I request the opinion of Simms on a variety of topics surrounding the NFL and mostly the Seattle Seahawks. Tuesday, I asked Simms if there was a better defensive end tandem than Cliff Avril and Michael Bennett.
Yes, Bennett often lines up inside, but he’s outside enough to consider him at least a part-time end, and Avril is exclusively an end that boasts among the best set of speed-rush moves in the game.
“They are both awesome,” Simms said. “I truly get excited to turn on the film and watch them just collapse the pocket against whatever quarterback they are playing … for my money, that’s the best tandem that the NFL has to offer.”
