The former New York Giants player, whos now a lead analyst for NFL on CBS, was never much of a superstitious football dude back in his heyday.
Hes heard of pigskin pros doing everything from growing out their facial hair during playoffs to wearing lucky socks or dirty shirts during a winning streak, but has never partaken in the rituals himself.
Says Simms: I was never a superstitious guy. I had enough problems and enough pressure on the field as it was, so I couldnt get into that stuff.
Simms is calling the San Diego Chargers-Pittsburgh Steelers game this Sunday (Jan. 11) on CBS, and says the Chargers shouldnt fear one football myth as they head to the chilly East Coast.
He explains, Having home-field advantage isnt as big as everybody thinks it is. As long as youre physical, tough, and organized, youre a winning team.
