Former NFL quarterback and current sportscaster for CBS, Phil Simms joined Felger and Massarotti on Radio Row to talk some New England Patriots and New York Giants.
Phil lets the guys know what they should be talking about and that’s Gronkowski’s ankle. How difficult is it to play on sprained ankle?
“Will they try to be careful early to save him or you just let it go?”
“It took me two years, now you know it’s different and they treat them different whatever. Wow was it rough and I played two weeks after I got hurt and the pain it was rough, it was terrible.”
What could they expect out of Gronkowski, if he plays?
“If you could get him at 75 percent that would be pretty good. You know the thing about him that might give him a better chance of having success is that we’re not talking about a wide reciever who’s trying to run by people. He’s a double edge guy he’s sneaky fast, but if he can’t run by you he’ll just out big you.”
Can the Pats win without Gronkowski? How does Gronkowski compare to Phil Simms’ tight end, Mark Bavaro?
“They need him they really do because the tandem together it’s so unique.”
Who is Phil taking on Sunday? What are the keys to Sunday?
Really being totally objective I like the Giants, I just think it’s this easy they have more ways to win.
Phil and the guys went on to talk about Peyton Manning. Does Phil think the Colts should draft Andrew Luck?
