VIDEO: Phil Simms Understands The Forward Pass

It all seems so simple on the surface. Since the forward pass was introduced in football, it's always gone ... forward. For most of us, this is intuitive -- the description is in the name, after all.

Phil Simms wants to remind you that for a pass to be a forward pass, it has to go, well, forward.

This is why he gets paid the big bucks, folks. Top-line analysis. Hope y'all learned something new today!

Also, the pass didn't go forward. It was a backwards pass, which we, in the business, like to call a fumble. That's the thingamabobber that goes backwards and hits the doohickey (ground).
