Phil Simms Says Son Misreported Tony Romo News, ‘Probably My Fault’


Phil Simms My Son Was Wrong On Romo News … ‘Probably My Fault’


Phil Simms says reports he was blindsided by the news he was being replaced by Tony Romo is completely false … and it’s awkward since it was his own son who reported that in the first place. 

Here’s the deal …  right after CBS made the move to swap out Simms for the Cowboys QB, Phil’s son, Chris Simms, went on Bleacher Report’s Simms & Lefkoe Podcast and said he was disappointed in the way things went down. 

“I had to tell my dad first, before CBS or anybody, because I found out from an NFL insider,” Chris said.

But Phil tells TMZ Sports it just ain’t true — “Of course I knew. I didn’t tell him so it was probably my fault.”

The good news … Phil says he’s excited for the next phase of his career as an analyst on CBS’ “The NFL Today.” 

We also asked if he had any advice for Romo — and it’s clear he thinks Tony will do great.
