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.
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.
Thank you for this post. Simms is getting unfairly killed for this innocuous comment. Simms has been a vocal supporter of Eli. He had a great line during the Steelers game that Eli was going to own all the Giants passing records although he might need to step up to break his (Simms) interception record.
