Chris Simms explains why he thinks Deshaun Watson throws the best deep ball

Mike Florio and Chris Simms talk about the best deep ball throwers in today's NFL and Simms defends his selection of Deshaun Watson. Simms does state that he might take Patrick Mahomes in a big game situation, but walks it back by saying Mahomes has better coaching and skill players around him than Deshaun. Simms also clarifies that Watson throws the prettiest deep ball because he throws it high and can spin it so hard. Either way, Deshaun is in elite company when it comes to throwing deep. Check out the video to hear the full breakdown, and to learn which former Houston QB Simms believes threw the best deep ball of all time.

Carlos Beltran missed out on his first opportunity to be inducted in the Hall of Fame this week, and we discuss how his involvement in the 2017 sign-stealing scandal may have played a role.

Plus, are we seeing a turning of the tide with national baseball writers and their opinion of the Houston Astros?

Bob Nightengale wrote this about Carlos Beltran and the Hall of Fame recently:

But we’re really going to ignore all of that and admonish him for participating in the Astros’ sign-stealing scandal.
Really?
Are we going to do the same with everyone who played for the Red Sox and Yankees during those years, too, when they were fined and disciplined for the illegal use of Apple Watches and dugout phones to relay signs?
Should we hold that against future Hall of Famer Justin Verlander, who obviously didn’t benefit from the sign stealing as a pitcher, but didn’t tell his teammates to stop it?
Enough already.
We’re not talking about performance-enhancing drugs here. Sign stealing has been going on for the past 100 years. There are teams who have used hidden cameras for years. Team employees flashed signs from outfield seats and scoreboards.

Check out the video above as we break it all down.
