Maybe Phil Simms is a bit overprotective since the last quarterback he raised turned into a drug fiend.
The former New York Giants Super Bowl winning quarterback-turned CBS television announcer came close to throwing punches at former college football hero and current ESPN analyst Desmond Howard. Howard Tweeted that Simms “threatened” him and said he wanted to “take a swing” at the former NFL receiver.
Simms was angry over comments Howard made three months ago about his son, Tennessee quarterback Matt Simms. Howard had called Matt Simms “one of the three worst quarterbacks in the SEC.”
Things got so heated in the Simms/Howard exchange at the NFL Xperience Saturday that police had to step in between the two. Simms now claims he was never goinng to hit Howard. Meanwhile, Howard immediately took to Twitter to rat out Simms.
