I don't think Simms is jealous at all. When Simms became an analyst before Eli came to NY, he was always fair when it came to the Giants.
Simms is just being a typical broadcaster going with the flavor of the month. After the SF game, the national media was in fact putting Eli in the Brady-Rodgers-Brees category. Now that he's been slumping, he's back to being in the second tier.
Eli is an elite QB. I think Simms is trying to stir the pot and create a buzz.
Sims isn't anti-Eli. He said last season that he thinks he's a HOF lock.
"Here we were five years ago, before the Giants won their first Super Bowl, and all the talk that year was maybe the Giants need to bring another quarterback in and Tom Coughlin's in trouble," Simms told USA TODAY Sports.
"Now they both absolutely one day will go in the Hall of Fame.
"Eli has been a real clutch quarterback. When you talk about why, never underestimate who he plays for and how he's been groomed."
Older generations of Giants fans will always love Phil Simms. He was a very good QB. Anybody who followed the Giants back then knows that Parcells was all about ground and pound. Simms was the perfect QB for that system.
