Chris Simms has a big issue with ESPN and he let off a few shots about them.
Not too long ago he was on PFT Live and said the following about the injured Jalen Hurts: “There’s just no way he’s more valuable to his team than Mahomes, Burrow, or Allen. Those teams are not the same teams if they don’t have them at quarterback. If you put Gardner Minshew (in for) the Eagles, they’d still be really damn good.”
The Eagles are 13-1 on the season when Hurts is their quarterback and 0-2 with Minshew laying in his place.
Apparently, SportsCenter’s Instagram account used his quote which allowed people to dunk all over him.
On the most recent episode of Chris Simms Unbuttoned, the former NFL QB went on a wild rant at social media accounts using his quotes for clicks, specifically calling out the SportsCenter Instagram account over their recent posts that included his comments.
“Jalen Hurts makes them better — I know that!” Simms said Monday. “F–k you, ‘SportsCenter’ Instagram for putting it out there again for the third time in like three weeks. F–k off. Really, f–k off. Seriously. They didn’t put my quote from after the Cowboys game, but they’re gonna wait till the game yesterday.”
Simms then challenged SportsCenter to a debate. As you know, SportsCenter is not an actual person.
“This was in the MVP debate context, like who is most valuable to the team,” Simms said. “Invite me on SportsCenter. Let’s have a fucking conversation if you really want to get into this, SportsCenter. Invite me on, ESPN, you scared little babies. They’re scared. They don’t want any piece of me.”
If you head over to SportsCenter’s Instagram account, you won’t see a single mention of him. He has to know that things posted on social media by that account is handled by various interns.
That invitation to a debate will likely never come.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
