Phil Simms vs. Steve Young

Postby hwilensk261 » Tue Nov 22, 2005 1:05 pm

Pretty funny stuff:

An agitated Phil Simms responded directly to comments made on ESPN's Sunday pre-game show by Steve Young that seemed to question the mental toughness of Simms' son, Chris, who is now the starting quarterback for the Bucs.

When asked about Young's comments, Simms, CBS' lead game analyst, said Young's assessment was "fantasy talk."

Simms questioned Young's TV work ethic by saying, "Well, Steve, follow football more than one day a week and you might know some of those answers."

After hearing Simms' response, Young left a message on Simms' cell phone, but did not plan on apologizing.

"Maybe what I will say is that I will be more careful about how I articulate what I'm thinking about young quarterbacks because it certainly had nothing to do with him personally," Young told The Post.

On ESPN's "NFL CountDown" Sunday, after saying Chris has a future in the league, Young added, "But what I worry about is his mental toughness. His dad was one of the greatest at being tough and handling all the criticisms . . . I worry that he grew up in a much different atmosphere, a laissez-faire kind of atmosphere. And I'm worried that he really doesn't have the mental toughness to deal with the information overload that comes with the NFL."

Simms responded by saying, "There is one thing I know my son doesn't lack, and that is toughness. And he didn't grow up in a laissez-faire atmosphere, far from it. Come to my house and live around with me and we'll see how laissez-faire it is.

"I don't know how Steve Young lives his life, but I don't live mine that way. And I didn't raise my kids that way. You can say whatever you want about my son, the one thing that will get me mad and I'll stand in your face about it, is about toughness."

I'd be surprised if either of those guys know what laissez-faire is...they probably think that it means he has the attitude of a mouse.

LAISSEZ-FAIRE IS EVERYWHERE!!!

Isn't he kind of proving Young's point by fighting his kid's battles and interfering? Let Chris respond---if he feels it even dignifies a response---and let him prove his mental toughness. Unless he is crying because of it and can't talk right now.

Yeah, I agree. Analysts have opinions ALL the time. Sometimes they're right and sometimes they're wrong. It's the player's job to prove the analyst right or wrong. It's not the player's Dad's job to prove the analyst right or wrong.

A) Phil spent too much time listening to Kellen Winslow defending da Souljah this offseason

B) Simms would pimp-slap Young's ass in a head-to-head fight...

I say let them go at it UFC-style to settle this one gang...
