The Facts: Rattay was an insurance policy after Brian Griese tore an ACL. The Bucs never had to use it. Chris Simms survived two shaky starts and is the No. 1 QB. More important, it appears McCown is No. 2.
Diehards Line:Rattay is slated to earn $1.25 million this year. As Times staffer Rick Stroud suggested, that's too much for a No. 3. Stroud went on to advise readers to look for the Bucs to shop him.
