PSA: Big Phil guested for entire Simms/Lefkoe podcast

Racer : 2/7/2019 1:37 pm
Chris just announced that he's leaving Bleacher Report for a full time NBC Sports gig (Football Night in America), so one of my go-to podcasts is coming to an end.

This recent SB film review was a pretty good listen as usual, and there were some funny 1986 stories in there as well. "Hey, Dad had to get so many SB21 tickets he played for free"

What I think Chris doesn't say when he's asked why he gets so choked-up over watching highlights of the 22-25 day is that it was loud and violent retribution for Phil and all of his fans who listed to the national/NY media and fans piss on our QB for all those years. Not unlike Eli winning MVP in Feb/2008

Listened to it this morning and thought it was excellent. I feel like both father and son provide some really extraordinary insight into the game. You may not always agree with their assessment but they do a great job educating each time they speak.

As for the Simms & Lefkoe podcast, I tend to agree that my time is likely done. Lefkoe is just not enjoyable to listen to, unless you are an Eagles homer that wants to listen to some fantastical echo chamber.

Chris Simms on the other hand has been excellent. It seems like they hinted at it, but I hope he does his own podcast over that because that will likely become my go to podcast for football analysis.
The big f*cker! haha.

I listened to about half the podcast on my way into work this morning and will listen to the rest when I leave. Any fan of the Giants from the 80's would appreciate whenever Phil comes on and tells stories from when he was playing.

The bit this morning about how shuffling is a lost art for Qb's was interesting. I also enjoy listening to him talk about his relationship with Parcells. Great stuff.

I don't know how they're going to keep the podcast interesting without Chris because he's the guy that knows football, and I'm not sure if Phil is really going to keep coming on once he's gone. I'll probably lose interest if its just always Lefkoe.
^listed = listened.

I'll give Lefkoe credit, he did demonstrate that he was paying attention over the years and picked up on things he was taught, but I can't see him carrying a show without an experienced ex-player or coach steering the content.
The banter on 'QB Gurus' is pretty great.

Some strong language.

About 8 minutes in Phil Simms starts makes reference to the footwork changes McAdoo did with Eli and how it doesn't really matter. Banter starts a little before, maybe around 6:30-7 minute mark.
