Biography

Phil Simms had the misfortune of playing quarterback in the same era and conference as Joe Montana. However, Simms still owns a pair of Super Bowl rings. He efficiently piloted the New York Giants to victory in Super Bowl XXI, beating John Elway. He also led Big Blue to a fine record in their 1990 championship season, but suffered an injury that kept him out of the playoffs that year. When he retired in 1994, Simms owned most of the Giants' franchise passing records. Even after hanging up his cleats, Simms remained ensconced in the game following a smooth transition to the broadcast booth. He worked with ESPN before moving to NBC, where his duties included broadcasting the Super Bowl, calling weightlifting at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, and working as a sideline reporter for NBA games. In 1998, Simms moved to CBS and became their lead broadcaster for football. Through his achievements on the field and his commentary in the booth, Simms has become one of the most respected and most visible personalities in football.
