no hate on Simms, but I would have respected his anti Eli comments more if he made them when Eli was on a run than when Eli was beaten down
Right now Phil looks silly and envious........which is probably a misconception too
Simms has his right to a opinion.
Everyone knows Eli is a special player. But as good as he is, I've never seen a QB (at his stage in his career) miss targets like he did last night with Hyno, and Ahmad, as he fired it at him from 5ft away. I've never seen truly great quarterbacks throw the ball so poorly at times.
You have to understand that Simms came up in a time with Marino, Elway, Kelly and Montana. He was always compared (unfavorably) to those QBs and like an abused child, he is now passing on that tendency to Eli.
Ironically, of the people Simms has mentioned (Brady and Rodgers), Eli has beaten them both head to head on the biggest stage. And I'm not sure I can say in one sentence that a person is destined for the Hall of Fame and in the next say he isn't elite.
But I don't blame Simms for saying his piece ... I just don't agree with him.
God, I love this thread!
TC: My ma urged me to get out of this game. When I was a kid, she pleaded with me. And I meant to, you know what I mean? But she died.
TC: Now look at me. I'm wet nurse to a last-place, dead-to-the-neck-up ball club, and I'm choking to death!
