Eagles LB Ernie Sims

September 11 Philadelphia Daily News

ERNIE SIMS wants to win tomorrow.Sure, everybody playing for the Eagles and the visiting Green Bay Packers wants to win, but Sims, the Birds’ new weakside linebacker, really wants to win, not having done so since Dec. 23, 2007, when the Detroit Lions defeated the Kansas City Chiefs, 25-20.

How long ago was that? Same day, the Eagles won in New Orleans, 38-23, with Kevin Curtis scoring a pair of touchdowns, and catching six passes for 78 yards. 
Sims, a Lion from the time he was drafted in the first round in 2006 until he was traded to the Eagles this past offseason, is 0-28 since. Detroit won twice last season, after going winless in 2008, but Sims missed both games with injuries.  Approached this week by a reporter who asked for the particulars of his most recent winning effort, Sims craftily cited the preseason victory over Kansas City Aug. 27.  Nice try, but no, that didn’t count.
Sims then said he couldn’t remember.  “It’s not fun,” Sims confirmed.  “You don’t play the game to lose, you play the game to win.””
