Simms does not care for the giants. Eli included. you hear it in his voice when he calls the games. the name Simms and Elite never show up in the same sentence . Elite is not always the numbers. Eli has a presence as an elite QB and many times does play like and elite QB. Simms could only wish to have that! F Simms!
I mean if Simms, Warner Toomer, Tiki, Shockey Plaxico and Strahan said it at one point. Can we really say its all them and they are wrong?
Seriously, he would absolutely carve up defenses.....but if he didn't have the time, he was a mess, because he was Dan Fouts slow.
Another thing.....of all the yardage Simms threw for, so many of them came on 3rd down. The old Giants ran a **** ton more than now.
If the NFL had a stat for "most 3rd down passing yardage while getting drilled in the ribs" .....Phil would be the all-time NFL leader.
"They come to the line of scrimmage and the first thing they do is start looking for me....I know, and they know. When they’d find me they’d start screaming: 56 left ! 56 left!....So there’s this thing I did. After the play was over I’d come up behind them and whisper: don’t worry where I am. I’ll tell you when I get there."
