Is There A Worse NFL Announcer Than Phil Simms


CBS NFL analyst Phil Simms annoys most television viewers.  There is not a specific thing that irritates NFL fans but a combination of self-importance and overall lack of awareness.

Exhibit A.

Towards the end of the New England Patriots AFC Divisional Round victory over the Houston Texans, Simms encouraged the Texans to complete a quick pass and kick a field goal for a chance at victory.  Except the Texans were down 13 with only :30 seconds left in the game, so kicking a field goal would STILL leave them down two scores.

Its almost sad how disappointed Simms sounded when Jim Nantz had to ruin his magical plan.
