Phil Simms tries to attack analyst for his opinion of his kid's crap performance
Seriously? Phil Simms thinks that just because he's a former player he should have the right to attack someone for their view on his kid's performance? Desmond Howard is paid to have an opinion, and going off the stats, it is correct.
"Simms' son, Matt, was the starting quarterback at the University of Tennessee before losing his job to freshman Tyler Bray late in the year. Simms finished the 2010 season with 1,460 yards, eight touchdowns and five interceptions, which were all SEC lows for starting quarterbacks."
In 2005, he got mad at Steve Young for saying his other son, also a poor performer, needed to display mental toughness week in and week out before he'd be sure the kid could handle it. Young may have gone a bit far in saying that Simms kids were raised in a laissez-faire environment, but it's not as though his kids grew up on the LES in a one BR apartment and had to take a bus for an hour to attend a school with broken pipes, no heat, no books, and four desks.
Come on, Phil, quit being a punk ***, let your kids finally stand on their own two feet, and drink a nice big cup of STHU. Or maybe his head is still swollen from SI naming him as the "most underrated QB" despite all the numbers indicating that he was, at best, an average/below average QB. Hard to see him as anything beyond that, given a passer rating of a dismal 78.5 and damn near as many picks as TD's (199/157).
I know several pro athletes and former pros, and they wouldn't think of exhibiting this kind of behavior. They would be embarrassed by this, and I hope CBS strongly considers this. I'm sure the NFL will express a concern about having him at games if he cannot control himself. The NFL experience is for the fans, not for some jackass to cause police to intervene.
