Anytime Bill Simmons has a chance to try and bring down the NY Giants, you know the Boston superfan is going to try and take a shot. Such was the case during Monday Night Football, with Simmons being featured on the ‘Manningcast’ with Eli Manning and big bro Peyton – couple of legnedary signal-callers, no doubt about that.
The David Tyree catch was brought up from when the G-Men stunned the Patriots in Super Bowl XLII. Manning, without hesitation, didn’t waste any time in shutting Simmons down after he claimed there were several holds on that play. Give us a break, Bill.
Bill Simmons failed miserably trying to bring down the New York Football Giants
That’s just perfect there from Manning. Simmons had a grin on his face accusing the Giants offensive line from committing a penalty or two, but Manning wasn’t having it. That catch from Tyree is one of the greatest in Super Bowl history. Simmons and people all over Boston and New England are going to have to live with that.
Unfortunately for Simmons, that wasn’t the only L he took following his comments. Legendary Giants hoss Shaun O’Hara decided to join in on the conversation and he dropped a proverbial mic drop of his own on Twitter.
Goodness – that’s just gold from O’Hara. Patriots fans will never forget the two Super Bowl losses to the Giants. Tom Brady probably stays up at night thinking about it too, as the Giants broke his heart with some stellar plays with the game on the line in both contests. Manning of course was in the center of everything.
Simmons can cry all he wants and complain about what might have happened if flags were thrown, but at the end of the day, the G-Men were the ones raising the Lombardi Trophy that night after Tyree’s unreal grab. Manning, O’Hara and the rest of the guys who played in that Super Bowl will keep on celebrating until the sun goes out.
