That's why Bill retired before he had to deal with Steve. Joking. Anyway, I still think it's partly true. During the playoffs, with Steve, I was never comfortable that everything would work like a well-oiled machine. Steve struggled in the playoffs for the most part. Grant is over the top with his comments, but he usually tells it like it is and he's no homer just because he likes the Giants. He crushes his own teams also. He has also been saying for the longest time that McNabb was over rated, even when McNabb was having damn good years.
Steve, was good, until the game finally slowed for him, I think the reason he was so good at the end of his career, was that he was forced to trust his brain more than his legs, and he found he could read defenses! I honestly don't think you win a Superbowl with out the ability to read a defense. I am also sure Steve did not read defenses well early in his career, but to say he never learned to is just trolling!
I didn't say he never learned. I said you can't put up the stats he did and NOT be able to read defenses. I'm only saying that that part of his game was highly over rated. I compare it to Kurt Warner who is another awesome QB. When the first read is always open, the QB looks great. It is when that first read isn't open that a true QB shows his mental ability towards the game and this is where Steve and Kurt struggled.
Great QB, for sure. His ability to use the "Force" is over rated. Brady and Montana are two guys who could move defenses because they know exactly what they want to do with the ball.
Also, to say Simms was better than Steve is a joke but that's all subjective because Simms wasn't exactly in a situation where the coach insipired him to play great.
