NFL analyst and former Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Chris Simms has been vocal about quarterback play this offseason, and he's releasing a full ranking of his top 40 quarterbacks in the NFL ahead of the 2020 season.

He still has 14 QBs left to rank, but he's already thrown some serious shade at a ton of players — including Chicago Bears passer Mitchell Trubisky.

Trubisky is coming off a down year, no doubt, but ranking him 38th on the list is a serious insult. This is still a guy who finished top-20 in the NFL in adjusted yards per pass attempt (AY/A; 7.3) in 2018 before having some struggles in 2019.

Ranking 38th on Simms' list has him two spots behind New Orleans Saints potential third-string QB in Taysom Hill, who has both more receptions (22) and rush attempts (64) than pass attempts (13) in his NFL career. He's practically only a quarterback by name.

He's also behind Justin Herbert, who has never thrown an NFL pass, as well as Case Keenum, whose 6.3 AY/A over the last two seasons trails Trubisky's 6.5.

Trubisky is a sizable +195 underdog in the odds to be the Bears' Week 1 starting quarterback on FanDuel Sportsbook (Foles is -300), but it still has to sting for Bears fans to see him so insultingly low on this list.
