Make no mistake...Phil Simms is a NYG hall of fame QB and a professional broadcaster trying to point out bad calls while not insulting the NFL and its officials that so many fans insisted that the NFL open its wallets for.

Simms called that game objectively, whereas Dan Fouts sounded like a Raiders homer when the Steelers played the Raiders.

Great job Phil Simms
Agree. Simms has the right to voice his opinion. And he was clearly correct. The PI calls were ridiculous. It was nice to see a non-Steelers broadcaster not hate on them for once. Usually, Simms and Nantz are totally against Pittsburgh in the way they call Steelers games, even though they are supposed to act neutral.

Most of the calls were bogus.
I was at the game. Steeler Nation was VERY WELL represented and very vocal supporting the Black and Gold. The sight of so many Terrible towels waving at an away game was awesome.
Giant fans are very friendly and knowledable.
Nearby fans getting the Giants radio broadcast were saying even the Giant annoiuncers were questioning the calls, especially Ben's fumble.
There definitely was a "Sandy Effect" on the officiating.
