In Response to Phil Simms should be fired
[QUOTE]I watch every Patriots game and I cringe every time Simms broadcasts a Pats game. He very rarely has anything to say about the Pats and almost always talks abouth the other team. He is so anti-Patriots he should be fired. On one play in the third quarter, he was talking about Sanchez talking to his offense on the sidelines after the Pats had just stopped them on 3rd down, and in the midst of a great play by the Pats (I think it was an 8 yard gain by BLGE, with great blocking by our line) and he said nothing about the Patriots play. In fact, he was commenting on the Jets, like he did most of the game !! As a Pats fan, I'd appreciate it if this guy would at least keep it to 50/50 for both teams. I have posted this before (last year) and many said I was wrong and how much Simms loves Belicheck etc.. I am here to tell you that Simms is a waste product, he is anti Pats and he is so obviously pro anyone playing the Pats that he rarely, if ever, comments on the Patriots. Plus, he wasn't that great a quarterback either. Fire him now !!

Too funny. As I watched the game on Sunday I could not help but think how Simms just despises the Pats. I thought I should write a post. As I came to do so just now I happily found yours pumpkin.
You could not be more right. I don't know if fired is the way to go, but perhaps he need not call any more Pats games. All game he talked about how the Jets are only 10 down or 13 down. He was so obvious. He was horrible.
I don't know why he has such hatred for the Pats, but it clearly showed through his entire broadcast. Awful. I don't mind the homers, but usually they acknowledge the other teams great plays.
The Pats ran the ball down the throats of the Jets. But no complaints coming from Simms. They also dominated the clock down the stretch but all he could say was if the Jets (Burress I think) could have caught that ball then they could have kicked like a 50 yard field goal and then recoverred the on side kick.
I think is should be looked into by the league for sure. It was just so blatantly obvious.
