Chris Simms blames Jim Nantz for getting Phil Simms 'fired' - throws him under the bus

“I wouldn’t be shocked,” Chris Simms said on his heard by one person Bleacher Report podcast. “Listen, certainly a company like CBS is going to run this by Jim Nantz. If I’m going to sit here and be honest with you, yeah, that’s what I would envision happens. Jim Nantz is their guy. ‘Hello, friends.’ He’s kind of the face and voice of the network. “He’s a bigger linchpin than Phil Simms for that network, that’s for sure. So I would think in some degree or fashion, I’m not trying to throw Jim under the bus, but yeah, he signed off on this to some degree.”

Yep, bet that went over well.

The talentless Simms family member went on. Blaming CBS for how it told Phil Tony Romo was taking over.

“I had to tell my dad first before CBS or anybody because I found out from an NFL insider,” Chris added. “I forwarded the text message that I was sent. It basically said, ‘Hey, listen, sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but Romo’s being offered your dad’s job on CBS. That sucks. I’m sorry.’ My dad was in Barbados. And I had to forward the text message to him to let him know.”

So...CBS couldn't get Phil and Chris is pissed so he forwards a text message? Why didn't Chris call dear old dad?

And all that was how much before b/r published 'SIMMS & LEFKOE PODCAST: TONY ROMO REPLACES PHIL SIMMS, CORNERBACK BREAKDOWNS' with that big ole taking advantage of the situation headline?

Oh...Chris has apologized.

So dad knew and didn't tell Chris?

And Chris is apologizing...but not for blaming Jim Nantz, apparently.

*Update - a week later...Simms still can't let it go.
