Peyton Manning Takes Phill Simms Down A Notch

If you've ever watched a CBS broadcast where Phil Simms launches into an extended, condescending sermon on football, you probably thought to yourself, "You know, somebody really needs to take that guy down a peg. Who died and made him Football God?"

Well, this passage from Peyton Manning is for you. Courtesy of CBS Sports:

You might recall that CBS/Showtime analyst Phil Simms said recently that Andrew Luck didn’t have an NFL arm. Naturally, reporters asked Manning about that, since the Colts, assuming they have the No. 1 draft pick next year, could take him as Manning’s eventual replacement.

"Yeah, I don’t talk to Phil. Phil doesn’t talk to me," Manning said. "He did text me after that, saying ‘Hey, sorry to drag your name into this.’ I wrote back, ‘Phil I don’t know what you’re talking about.’ He said, ‘Well on my show, Inside the NFL, I made this statement.’ I said, ‘Phil, I hate to break it to you, but I don’t watch your show, along with a lot of other people that I don’t think watch that show.’ Giving himself a little more credit than probably was merited."
