Desmond Howard: Claims Phill Simms Threatened To Punch Him During NFL Experience
Desmond Howard Tweets That Ex-QB Simms Wanted To Hit Him
Social media is an awesome place. It gives us great insight into what happens in the daily lives of athletes and celebrities.
You know, the normal stuff : Celebrity appearances, hanging out with other NFL greats at the NFL Experience and possible getting into a fist fight with Phil Simms.
Simms reportedly took exception to a comment that Howard made about his son, Matt Simms a quarterback for the Tennessee Volunteers, during the college football season,.
Here's Howard's take on what happened between the two former Super Bowl MVP's.
"At NFL-Xperience and Phil Simms just threatened 2 hit me b/c I said his son was 1 of the worse QBs in the SEC. I told him 'LET'S GO!'" tweeted Howard. "I am DEAD serious about the Phil Simms thing. We all thought he was joking, but he kept going and said he wanted 2 take a swing at me!!"
"During the season we talked about the Tenn v LSU game and I said 'u will see 3 of the worse QBs in the SEC' That's what Phil did not like."
Apparently it got so bad that cops had to be called in to apparently restrain an angry Simms: "It ended w/police stepping in between so I could continue my appearance w/fans."
You can call Phil a very overprotective Papa in this case. But Howard wasn't really exaggerating.
Considering the SEC had NFL talents such as Ryan Mallett, Cam Newton, Greg McElroy and Stephen Garcia garnering a lot of attention, Tennessee's Matt Simms wasn't exactly at the top of the SEC's list of quarterbacks.
Simms, a JuCo transfer, posted a rather unimpressive 1460 passing yards, eight touchdowns, five interceptions and 25 sacks this season.
Ya, those numbers probably puts him at the bottom of the list.
Suck it up Phil, at least Desmond didn't say he was the worst quarterback in the SEC.
