Phil Simms - Biography and Images

Phil Simms – born 3 November 1954 – is a retired American football quarterback who spent his entire 14-year career playing for the New York Giants of the NFL.

He is currently a television presenter and commentator for the CBS network.

After a standout career at Morehead State University, Simms was drafted in the first round by the New York Giants of the National Football League (NFL) with the number seven selection overall in the 1979 NFL Draft.

Simms played his entire professional career with the Giants and was named Most Valuable Player (MVP) of Super Bowl XXI, after he led the Giants to a 39–20 victory over the Denver Broncos and set the record for highest completion percentage in a Super Bowl, going 22 for 25 (88%).

He finished his career with 33,462 passing yards and has since gone on to be a career broadcaster of NFL games—first as an analyst for ESPN, then as a in-game color commentator with NBC, and currently with CBS.

He is the father of former NFL quarterback, New England Patriots assistant coach, and current FOX Sports College Football analyst Chris Simms, as well as New York Jets quarterback Matt Simms.
