Simms: Thank You, Buc Fans

QB Chris Simms, out of the hospital after having his ruptured spleen removed on September 24, takes a minute to pass on his gratitude for the support he received from the community


QB Chris Simms found letters and gifts from fans very uplifting during his stay in the hospital

Dear Buccaneers fans,

I would truly like to thank all the Tampa Bay Buccaneer fans. The support you gave me after I was injured was unreal. The way you treat me when you see me, all the letters, candy, food, balloons, flowers that I got – I can't tell you how much all that brightened up my day while I was sitting in the hospital doing nothing.

It definitely was a huge part of my rehabilitation process to know how much support was behind me. You have again shown to me that Buccaneers fans are in a league of their own. You've shown me great respect, and I'm very thankful for that.
