Here’s a comment you don’t see every day:
Matt Simms considers himself a pro when it comes to taking a sack. The Tennessee quarterback has a little experience having been hit with 18 of them in five games.
“I know it sounds weird, but I really think I’ve kind of mastered how to take a sack and just protect my body and protect the football,” he said. “Really, most people would think you try to tense up and kind of ball up your muscle, but really you kind of relax and let your body go, really to be honest, and not try to brace yourself by putting your hand out or bracing the fall.”
Let’s hope he gets plenty of opportunities to polish his technique Saturday.
