Last year it wasnt Sim that was the problem it was being down to three NFL caliber defensive tackles, unless you think that Jim Flanigan was still an NFL caliber defensive tackle.
Simoneau wasn't all that impressive even before injuries mounted. He had a high tackle count, but it was a lot of downfield pursuit tackles and few "plays". While Trotter did take himself out of position often, he also made far more plays (INTs, Sacks, stuffs in the back field, forced fumbles).
