Who would you rather have doubt you as an NFL quarterback, Phil Simms or David Letterman? You’d think it was Letterman, but maybe not after what he said on his show Monday night with Simms in the guest chair. Letterman asked Simms about the Jets’ quarterback situation, including how Tim Tebow fits in. Letterman wanted to know whether Tebow could ever be a starter, and Simms gave some analysis about how the Broncos succeeded with Tebow and how Mark Sanchez‘s contract complicates Tebow’s chances in New York or the rest of the league. But where things really got interesting is when Simms and Letterman started talking about the playoffs from last weekend. The Ravens beat Letterman’s new favorite team, the Broncos (whose quarterback, Peyton Manning, was a Letterman favorite when he played for Letterman’s hometown Indianapolis). Letterman was still smarting over the loss. Letterman’s biggest sticking point was how a quality quarterback like Manning could have been beaten by a quarterback Letterman had never heard of. Letterman apparently doesn’t watch too much football, and he thought the Ravens were still in the days of having a game manager at quarterback while the defense runs the show. Yes, Letterman called Joe Flacco a “Trent Dilfer-like quarterback.” Ouch. That’s got to be worse than anything anyone has called Tebow. Check out Letterman’s less-than-informed thoughts, and Simms’ take on Tebow, in the video below.
