The former Giants quarterback, who was replaced by Tony Romo as CBS’ lead NFL game analyst, will be moving to “The NFL Today” studio show, the network announced, joining Bill Cowher, Boomer Esiason and Bart Scott. He will replace Tony Gonzalez, who left the weekly show that airs Sundays earlier in the year because he didn’t want to travel to New York from his home on the West Coast.

..off-camera, and does a lot of research for Cowher and the other guys every week. When Phil comes on Sirius it sounds like the same conversations PK talks about that happen during games in the green room on Sundays. Not sensational, just gameplans, personnel and Xs-and-Os.

Phil fits right in with that crew and he's already pretty tight with Boomer and PK.

I'm glad Phil will no longer be handcuffed by some twitteriffic producer in the truck who 'knows' the public doesn't want Xs and Os.
I don't understand

Perhaps CBS knows something you don't?
Romo quite literally couldn't be worse than phil

So it's not as tho he has big shoes to fill (no pun). Outside of billy packer I. Any recall a worse A team than Simms. Loved him as a player but as an announcer he was brutal.
