A couple of interesting notes: Matt Simms is only 68th in passing, but, surprise, he's tied with both Terrelle Pryor and Greg McElroy. He's only 78th in passing yards per game, but he's ahead of Florida's John Brantley. And finally, Simms is 92nd in total offense, ahead of pre-season Heisman candidate Christian Ponder, who is 98th.
