Bingo or any other old G-Men fans, do you guys ever remember Simms being as up and down as Eli when he was just a kid?  I remember fans bitching about him but always thought he was pretty solid, even if Parcells sometimes didn't (ie-benching him for Scott Brunner).



I don't think Simms was as inconsistent as Eli but I don't think he was ever truly accpeted until they won the Super Bowl. I think going into the Denver game people were still worried about him.

On another note, Simms is probably my alltime favorite football player but there is no way they make it to or win SuperBowl XXV with him as QB. Hoss just brought something that the Giants had had since Tarkenton and haven't had since, a mobile QB.


Edit- Was it Parcells that kept benching him or was it Ray Perkins? I thought once Bill got there the QB situation was stabalized.

I remember that it was Perkins in 1981 who benched Simms and then Brunner led them to the playoffs.  Maybe Simms got hurt (?) in 1982 and Brunner returned as QB, but I do remember Brunner being our QB that year as well.  That was the strike year.

In 1983, it was Parcells first year and we had high hopes but went like 3-13.  It was a terrible year.  Maybe that's the year I am thinking of.  Not sure. I 'll have to research that.

Remember Gary Jeter, the defensive end?  Parcells fucking hated him and shipped him to LA after that 83 season .  I remember reading that Brad Benson once said that Parcells grabbed him and told him if Jeter got any sacks against him that day that he'd cut his nuts off!  I think I read that in Parcells biography.

Funny story. Wasn't Gary Jeter the one on the United Way commericals that had the father with no legs? Don't ask me how I remember that. He was a good player.

Any thoughts on these Giants from the Parcells era?

Center Bart Oates

Placekicker Matt Bahr

Running Back Otis Anderson

For some reason I loved playing as the Giants when Tecmo Super Bowl came out. Bahr could hit a field goal a mile long.


My Chiefs were stacked, too: Old Man DeBerg at QB tossing bombs to JJ Birden. Then you had Christian Okoye AND Barry Word at RB. Awesome team.

All studs.  Bavaro was the most bad-assed of all the offensive players.

Tecmo Bowl is the single greatest video game of all-time, IMO.  Bo Jackson and Walter Payton were my favorites.  I always thought that Bernie Kosar really threw like his Tecmo Bowl guy!:D
I'd rate Sega Hockey '93 just behind it.

I'm going to throw in Mutant League Hockey and Football (SEGA), Arch Rivals (Nintendo), Blades of Steel (Nintendo), RBI Baseball (Nintendo) and any Madden where you could control the ambulance after a player was injured.

Great run this year for the Cowboys but it is all over now. Story below.




Tony Romo apparently spent the bye weekend in Mexico with Jessica Simpson and who appear to be football-sized pals and/or bodyguards.

The original post appeared on flynetonline.com and immediately went through several Web sites, such as The Big Lead and Sports by Brooks, and finally to Fark, which means we'll probably be hearing about it on Leno or Letterman.

But what we find particularly embarrassing for Romo is not that he was with Simpson when some Cowboy fans would prefer he be studying game tapes or something (how about practicing those placekick holds, just in case) but that in one photo, this first one here on flynetonline, he bears a striking resemblance to comedian George Lindsey as Goober Pyle.

I don't buy this whole "Tony Romo as a hearthrob" gimmick. He's a turdburgler through and through. He just struck it rich.

Good thing that coaches never lie about injuries. ;)

He plays. The guy is a gamer. (where's the sports cliche list?)

And he "gets great separation after the catch".  His buddy, Marion Barber, is a hell of a "downfield runner". 

Both those guys give "110% out there" and take it "1 game at a time."

I assume you mean they "leave it all on the field" while "wearing their heart on their sleeve."

Of course.  They "know what's at stake" and both those guys are "big time players'.

According to Wikipedia, Simms torn a knee ligament in preseason and was out for whole 82 season.

In '83 Parcells started Brunner but during the sixth game put in Simms.  Simms injured his thumb on his second drive and was out the rest of '83 also.

But do they "bring their game faces?"
