OT: Analyst armegedon
I'd put my money on Desmond. Phil was as brittle as they come in his playing days
Desmond looks like he keeps himself in good shape. Phil does probably have 20-30 lbs. on him though.
Desmond still has that top end speed. speed is something phil never had.
are blowing up about this. A little surprised Desmond went about it the way he did. I'm glad though, because this is hilarious.
it gives people a reason to watch 10hours or more of pre-SuperBowl talkfest crap.
... in the wise, but grammatically exploratory , words 3RD FLO. At least we know Desmond can outrun Phil (get over it).
Work the body Desmond and the head will fall.
Maybe Dez is still feeling the effects of the Playboy party last night. I know that always effects what I say the following day.
His son is one of the worst QB's in the SEC...
Matt Simms is confused by all of this attention.
Also, where is that pizza he ordered. And, woah, like, does anyone else feel their heart beating really, really fast?
Additionally, if you want to watch Matt SImms be a total fucking tool:
I fucking hate that kid. I hate that school, He thinks he's tough pulling that shit with my school, we're a lot tougher than those Ramsey kids. Way to be a disrespectful tool, Glad I wasn't there.
I agree with Orson
That the police finally had to step in, and now it's over. He said "now I can get back to my fans."
Contrary to recent MSM articles, which claim he was only injury prone early in his career, was injury prone throughout his NFL career (hello Jeff Hostetler). He's probably lucky that police stepped in.
I can hear it now: "DOWN GOES SIMMS"!!!
Wow, I guess it's time for me to get a twitter account. Im sure Phil Simms has never said anything negative about a player before in his life. Why is what Desmond said any different? I dont care if that's your son or not, criticism comes with being a QB at a big time program. I wish Desmond would have whipped his ass.
Simms was the worst quarterback in the SEC in several categories, if I am not mistaken. Why would you want to hit a man for speaking the truth, especially when Vegas had that man winning by KO in the first round?
I'll take that wager!
Some of those responses on the profootballtalk page are...wow. I always wondered where those dudes that get into fights in the little league stands lurk, but I think I just found them.
Who the hell is Phil Simms and where the hell does his son (whoever the hell that is) play?
Phil Simms is an analyst and former New York Giants QB.
His son was, until Tyler Bray came along, the starting QB at Tennessee.
Here is Phil in ACTION......
This is how I always saw Phil.....
John Navarre? Is that you?
Thank you, kind sir.
I looked up his stats and find it funny that he had a 2-6 record as the starter, and the other guy won 4 straight games.
Glad to help.
You're right - it is funny what a change of QB can do to a team.
"Once a douchebag, ..."
I wish Desmond would whip his ass right now.
This is turning into professional wrestling (no not rassling).
ass Dez, just kick his ass.
The larger question of the propriety of ripping college football players in that way is an interesting one. It has evolved a lot the last decade where they are treated a lot more like pros by the media. Ultimately it is big boy football for high stakes. These are the same kids parading around on signing day with increasingly elaborate press conference acts revealing their "decision". They play to the news cycle and they benefit greatly from it when times are good.
Howard is well within his bounds offering an opinion like this. When Simms confronts him in this way, he actually forces informed fans like those on this board to lay down statistical bases for the opinion. This creates even more light on his son's poor play.
And that would be the first time somebody named Simms has hit a receiver in a loooooooong time.
I think Texas fans agree about Phil Simms' behavior regarding his overrated quarterback sons (e.g. Major Applewhite's senior year). I can't believe he'd hold a grudge that long against Dez. What a prick.
Note to Phil:
Every player you criticize has a parent somewhere. Get over it.
